Requirements
  • There are no prerequisites for this course. You will be able to download and install a trial version of AutoCAD to practice and complete the assignments.
  • The working assumption of this course is that you know absolutely NOTHING about AutoCAD, thus I will be teaching from absolute ZERO.
Description

Many people think you need an Engineering degree to design piped systems such as chemical plants and filtration systems, but that's not the case. People are often intimidated by AutoCAD and think it takes years of experience to operate effectively, but this too is a misconception.

You are going to walk into this course perhaps never having even SEEN AutoCAD before, and by the end, you'll be CONFIDENTLY designing complex, piped systems from scratch. What's more, you'll be creating virtual, 3D solid models of these systems and then generating all of the drawings necessary to fabricate and assemble your system!

Once you learn the material in this course, there really is no limit to what you'll be able to design, model and draw.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anybody wanting to learn how to create 3D models and clean, professional drawings of piped systems will find all they need in this course.

Mercenary PLC-tamer

My background includes industrial automation and mechanical design. By degree, I'm an MBA, however after a few years on the road full-time as a management consultant, I fell into and in love with engineering.

My PLC / HMI experience includes projects from $10k up to about $40m, primarily within the realm of chemical processing and filtration. I am competent in RSLogix 500, 5000, FactoryTalk, PanelView, Maple Systems, C-More, Productivity 3000 and Arduino.

From a mechanical perspective, I've designed most of the same systems I program. My competencies in this area include full design, 3D modeling and drafting of assembly and fabrication drawings in AutoCAD and / or Inventor. I've designed mobile systems that were built in shipping containers up to one that filled a two-story building.

Before engineering, I developed and implemented CI (Continuous Improvement) management systems in companies across America in various industries to include a military finance organization, a printing company, a mortgage bank, a candy factory (my personal favorite), a nuclear products manufacturer, a major producer of coiled aluminum and several more.

Apart from things professional, I'm heavy into RC (heli, planes, drones, buggies and rally cars) and I also dedicate time to studying and teaching the Scriptures on my own websites (vanityandlies / vanidadymentiras).
