What’s in the course

The best way to learn AutoCAD is by doing the actual stuff for which the software is designed and learning the tools and commands in the process, this course is designed just like that. In this course the 3D interior of house is designed right from scratch with all the details and then final rendering is created.

In this course not only the interiors are created but also the exterior of the 3D house is modelled and a 2D plan is created with annotations using the 3D house.

Autodesk added a whole bunch of new rendering tools and improved the rendering environment considerably in 2016 version of AutoCAD. All those changes effected how rendering is made in AutoCAD and this course addresses those changes as well.

This course is for an intermediate level AutoCAD user who has a basic knowledge of 2D as well as 3D drawing tools. For this course, you need AutoCAD 2016 or any later versions.
