Learning Outcomes

The problem with learning autoCAD in a computer school is that you only learn how to use the autoCAD software package as a drafting tool without understanding the Engineering drawing standards required. There is far more to autoCAD than that... Our AutoCAD training is aimed to develop students ability to apply autoCAD to their various Engineering field: Achitechtural & Building, Civil & Structural, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical & Production Engineering, Chemical & Petroleum Engineering. We as an Engineering design company, use autoCAD extensively for most of our applications. Also, besides the fact that we teach autoCAD tailored for Engineering students , we have first hand experience on its applications and usage, which means you'll learn more industry based applications.

  • Start and set-up basic and simple drawings.
  • Draw in 2D & 3D
  • Do standard Engineering drawings.
  • Do standard Assembly drawings.
  • Do standard Schematic drawings
  • Do standard Electrical house wiring drawings
  • Do Building Plans and Architectural Drawings
  • Use AutoCAD for Electrical Equipment design
  • Program Autocad.
  • Communicate and Interpret Engineering drawings.
  • Produce drawings to a recognised Engineering standards (BS8888).

  • Introduction: Why AutoCAD?, the Drawing Interface/Workspaces, Setting up and saving your drawings in 2D. File formats (dwt & dwg files).
  • AutoCAD Basics: Starting to draw, opening a drawing, using commands, specifying co-ordinates, using drawing aids from the status bar.

TRAINING DAY2 & DAY3
  • Drawing in two dimensions: Drawing basic 2D objects using drawing tools, editing your drawings using the modify tools, Layers, Colors, Linetypes, Lineweights, creating text, dimensioning, creating dimension styles, drawing complex objects.
  • Engineering Drawing Standards(BS8888)
  • Drawing Exercises: Drawing exercises for Electrical Wiring, Mechanical designs & Building Plans.

 

TRAINNG DAY4 & 5
  • Isometric Drawings, Inquiry Commands & Scalling: Drawing in Isoplanes, using Inquiry commands to get technical details and information of drawings, drawing to scale.
  • Border Line, Title block & Plotting: Drawing border lines and Title blocks, Scaling and Plotting (printing)your drawings on paper.
  • More Drawing Exercises: Electrical, Mechanical, Civil & Architectural drawing exercises


STAGE 2 (AutoCAD 3D)

TRAINING DAY6 & 7
  • Introduction to AutoCAD 3D: Working in 3D environment, using 3D Co-ordinates, 3D polylines, Using Elevation and Thickness, working with the User Co-ordinate system.

  • Viewing 3D Drawings: Working with standard Viewpoints, Using DDVPOINT, displayingg parallel and perspective projections, using 3D orbit, using DVIEW, Laying out 3D drawings.

TRAINING DAY8 & 9
  • CREATING 3D SURFACES : Converting objects to surfaces , Drawing with 3DFACE, Drawing standard 3D shapes , Drawing resolved surfaces , Drawing extruded surfaces , Drawing surfaces between 2D Objects , Drawing Edge Surfaces , working with multi-type of 3D Objects.

  • CREATING SOLIDS & EDITING IN 3D: Drawing basic shapes , creating extruded solids, Using the EXTRUDE command , sectioning and slicing solids , using editing commands in 3D , trimming , filleting , chemfering, exploding, using the SOLIDEDIT command.

TRAINING DAY 10
  • DRAWING EXERCISES: General drawing exercises on areas of your expertise would be done.For example if you are studying Mechanical Engineering , Assembly drawings would be done , Electrical Students would do house wiring and other Electrical drawings, while house plans would be done for Architectural students.

  • REVIEW OF TRAINING: General review of entire training.
