I got halfway through this course before I realized that it does not include anything about 3D modeling. Great 2D content, but no 3D.
I started this course having never opened AutoCAD before, and now after this course feel comfortable with simple tasks in AutoCAD such as drawing/editing text and shapes, and also navigation through the program. It was a great course for teaching me the basics and is strongly recommended for anyone looking to get started in AutoCAD.
This is a fantastic course to learn the fundamentals of 2D drawing in AutoCAD.
Schroeder was generous in offering this course to teach the fundamentals of AutoCAD 2012 in such a way that anyone could learn. Descriptive, informative and detailed, Schroeder provided students with a great base for basic design and editing. I will be adding this to my linkedin and resume. Thanks Schroeder, keep up the good work.
I needed to learn AutoCad, because I am going into engineering and it&amp;#039;ll look good to have it on my resume. This course really helped me get my feet wet and get all the basic commands down. I also appreciated having assignments, it helped me understand what I was learning. 5/5
