Three dimensional solid model drawings help engineers, designers, fabricators, and construction crews to understand two dimensional drawings. Typically 2D drawings are fully dimensioned and 3D models are inserted to assist visualization of the part, assembly, or exploded view.
This 8 PDH course summarizes the AutoCAD tools, commands, and methods for making three dimensional solid models of: Parts, Assemblies, and Exploded Assemblies. The techniques described here include all versions of AutoCAD released during the past several years, including releases 14 to 2007. Please note that all versions of AutoCAD LT (Light) enable the creation of 2 dimensional drawings and not 3 dimensional models.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
