AutoCAD Bootcamp Training Course Description:

AutoCAD is used for 2D and 3D design and drafting in every discipline including; architecture, MEP, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, structural engineering, electronics, interior design and industrial design. AutoCAD also can be used to generate STL (StereoLithography) files for 3D printing.

In ThinkB!G’s 5-day AutoCAD Bootcamp training course, you will be introduced to the interface and the basic commands in AutoCAD.

Then you will explore options and features available including tracking, layers, styles, xrefs and more!
