AutoCAD Level 2

This class strives to make the student more proficient in the use of AutoCAD. The class teaches students how to use the most efficient command for a task and introduces advanced techniques for drawing, editing, working with advanced customization tools, blocks, working with sheet sets, and creating layouts.


Upon completion of the class, the student will be more efficient with the following; tool palettes, drawing with complex objects (including polylines, regions, and advanced text objects), defining blocks and attributes, using external reference files and image files, using layouts and advanced plotting features, creating sheet sets, and enhancing productivity with simple customization. We recommend practice after class in order to reinforce these new skills.
