Learning AutoCAD is a course I wrote for people looking to get a handle on this powerful software in a short amount of time. By the end of the course, you'll be comfortable with how to work with drawing files, controlling the views, creating basic geometry, editing, and creating text to accompany your work.
*Over 3 hours of video lectures.
A great benefit of this course is the pause button; you're able to stop the video and try out the commands, continuing when you're ready. Let your curiosity lead you through the course, and try to apply it to the type of work you're expecting to use the software for.
Not for you? No problem.
