autocad 3D

AutoCAD 3D

Duration: 20 hours

Teaching Methodolody: Hands on

DESCRIPTION

The AutoCAD software provides extensive 3D commands to allow users to express their designs using 3D views.

overview

In this course, students learn how to create 3D views from 2D plans, sections and elevations. They will also learn how to add cameras, lighting, materials, and backgrounds to render 3D views.

AUDIENCE

Architects, interior designers, decorators, artists, and anyone who is interested in creating 3D presentations.

PREREQUISITES

AutoCAD 2D course. Before taking this course, participants should be familiar with drawing plans, sections and elevations on AutoCAD to be able to model them later on into 3D. Adobe Photoshop essential skills are a plus.
