Private AutoCAD Lessons Near You
First released by Autodesk in 1982, AutoCAD has become the leading computer-aided design (CAD) software. Today, the software's available for use on Windows, Mac, and even offers a free downloadable student version. It's used abundantly across design, engineering, architectures, and other industries. The software allows users to create highly detailed illustrations of design specifications in two-dimensional and three-dimensional planes.
Compared to drafting blueprints by hand, AutoCAD's features and capabilities ease the creation, accuracy, multiplication, and revision of these detailed drawings. AutoCAD's applications range from the simple generation of charts and graphs for presentations to complex projects like rendering the entire plans for the construction of a skyscraper.
Used in industries as diverse as engineering, robotics, fashion, architecture, and city planning, learning how to use AutoCAD opens up a plethora of opportunities for kids and adults, alike.
Why Learn How to Use AutoCAD?
The primary reason to learn AutoCAD is to open up professional opportunities. AutoCAD is the most popular and widely used computer-aided design software. Knowing the ins and outs of it will boost your resume and secure your future with plenty of work. AutoCAD experts have opportunities to get hired by major companies, to provide freelance design work, and to teach others.
AutoCAD is essential to the function of a variety of professionals who work in different industries. This includes all types of engineers, architects, construction project managers, city planners, graphic designers, automobile designers, aeronautical design, interior designers, set designers, product developers, inventors, and more. Anyone with a need or desire to participate in 3D printing also needs a thorough knowledge of AutoCAD. If you love both science and creative design, then learning AutoCAD will allow you to work with both your creative and your practical side every day.
The Best Way to Learn AutoCAD and What You'll Study in Classes
Although it's easy to find free AutoCAD lessons and tutorials online, the best way to learn the software is with a private AutoCAD tutor. In private lessons, you'll receive your teacher's undivided attention and personalized instruction that simply isn't possible when learning in a larger class setting or when watching online videos. You'll receive immediate feedback and overcome challenges quickly.
No two private lessons are alike. Private teachers customize each lesson to meet the student's needs. For example, AutoCAD classes for children differ from AutoCAD lessons for adults in terms of teaching style, course content, and methods. In private lessons, you'll stay motivated and interested, while you learn at a pace that's comfortable for you.
Sample Curriculum for Beginner AutoCAD
If you have little or no previous experience using AutoCAD software, then beginner's lessons are right for you. In these lessons, your teacher will introduce you to all the basics of your AutoCAD software. After beginner lessons, you should be able to navigate the software and create some basic drawings. Your tutor might cover the following topics:
- Introduction to software navigation, features, and tools
- Basic AutoCAD terminology and screen
- Input points, using the x-y coordinate system
- 2D drawing and introduction to modifying commands
- Orthographic projection
Sample Curriculum for Intermediate AutoCAD
If you're comfortable with basic commands and drawing in AutoCAD, but want to expand your abilities, then intermediate lessons are for you. You'll learn to handle more complex drawings, plans, and designs, as you challenge yourself to use new tools and commands. Your AutoCAD teacher might cover the following topics:
- Project planning
- Designing and inserting blocks
- Working with non-graphical information
- Hatching and working with text
- Creating and mapping materials
Sample Curriculum for Advanced AutoCAD
If you're pretty well-versed in AutoCAD, but feel your command of the software could use some polishing for professional use, then advanced courses are right for you. In these classes, you'll have the opportunity to work with others who use AutoCAD professionally on a daily basis. You'll perfect your designs and flesh-out their contents. Topics covered in advanced courses depend greatly on the student's goals and interests, but your teacher might cover the following:
- Master 3D drawing
- Linetypes, scales, and system variables
- Rendering and lighting
- AutoCAD animation
- Work toward AutoCAD certification
