PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Course Description

Auto CAD is a 2-D and 3-D computer-aided drafting software application used in architecture, construction, and manufacturing to assist in the preparation of blueprints and other engineering plans. Professionals who use Auto CAD are often referred to as drafters.

Like many sophisticated programs, Autocad is relatively easy to use but hard to master. The benefits of using CAD over traditional drawing methods are not so much in the speed with which an initial drawing can be produced, rather it is the efficiency with which those drawings can be edited and circulated. In order to take advantage of these benefits, Autocad drafts people must make use of the organisational features of the program. The use of layers, styles, blocks and sheet sets can dramatically improve the ease with which a drawing can be modified and distributed. Without using these techniques, you may as well return to manual drafting.

What will you learn?

1. You will know how to evaluate more what-if scenarios and optimize project performance, streamline project workflows by automating time-consuming tasks.

2. You will know how to use streamlined workflow for creating corridor models, and gain mastery over tools for pressure network creation, sanitary and storm drainage systems, terrains models for grading, automated parcel layout tools.

3. You will learn how to use tools for dynamic surface creation, streamline mapping and surveying workflows, and use point clouds to digitize as-built features.

4. You will learn to use an extensive library of CAD drafting styles, generate annotated production plans, use cartographic mapping functionality, and use dynamic tables for line work.

5. You will know how to do storm and sanitary analysis, geospatial analysis, and river analysis.

Prerequisites

Auto CAD Civil software is a civil engineering design and documentation solution that supports Building Information Modeling workflows. It is used for designing, drafting and documentation, analysis, defining workflows, surveying and mapping of civil projects.

Auto CAD is a generic design & documentation tool, and as such it is used across a large number of industries including, architecture, interior design, shop fit-outs, construction, engineering, landscape design, product design and manufacture, naval and aeronautical design, piping and cabling, just to name a few. Anyone that needs to produce accurate plans and sections of a design, can utilize Auto CAD for this task. While Auto CAD is extremely popular, there are other CAD packages which people use, such as Micro station, Form Z and ArchiCAD. If you are choosing a package to learn, to improve your job prospects, first try and ascertain which programs are being used by the companies that you are likely to approach.
