#1 Learning Autodesk AutoCAD 3D 2016

In this AutoCAD 3D 2016 training course, expert author Seth Cohen will show you how to use the powerful tools available in this computer aided design software from Autodesk. This course is designed for the 3D beginner, but it is recommended that you are familiar with the basics of AutoCAD before attempting this course.

You will start with an introduction to 3D modeling and how to navigate and work in AutoCAD 3D. Seth will then jump into teaching you how to create 3D models, covering topics such as wireframes, surface modeling, primitive solid models, and creating models from 2D profiles. This video tutorial will also teach you how to create composite solids, add detail with filleting and chamfering, and edit the solid models. You will also cover modifying the model position, duplicating the model, converting 2D objects to solids or surfaces, and viewing and plotting your models. Finally, you will learn about rendering, recording an animation, and using ShowMotion for presentations.

Once you have completed this computer based training course, you will be fully capable of creating, editing, rendering, and presenting your own 3D models using AutoCAD 3D. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.

#2 AutoCAD  Beyond the Basics

In this AutoCAD 2016 Beyond the Basics training course, expert author Brian Benton teaches you about advanced tools and concepts in this computer aided design software program from Autodesk. This course is designed for users that are already familiar with AutoCAD.

You will start by learning about advanced navigation tools, then jump into learning about advanced operations. From there, Brian will teach you about advanced tools, including align and 3D align, lengthen, quick select, and divide. This video tutorial also covers topics including object visibility, annotation, sheet sets, output, dynamic blocks, parametric constraints, and action recorder. You will also learn about customization, including how to customize the ribbon and workspaces. Finally, you will learn about file management, 3D design, and Autodesk cloud services, such as AutoCAD 360, sharing and collaboration, and rendering in the cloud.

Once you have completed this computer based training course, you will have gained a solid understanding of these advanced tools and techniques in AutoCAD. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.

#3 Learn and Master Computer-Aided Design (CAD) With Tinkercad

Computer-Aided Design, or CAD, is a 21st century skill that anyone can learn… and a skill that everyone should learn. From artists to engineers, from 6-year-olds to 90-year-olds, CAD is software that helps a wide range of users create 3D objects on screen — toys, buildings, vehicles, animated movie characters, video games, and more. Artists use CAD to design jewelry, furniture, and sculptures. Engineers use CAD to design the latest technology product you see in the stores, and architects use it to design skyscrapers and houses. Animators use CAD to create those wonderful CG (Computer Generated) special effects and characters you see in today’s cutting-edge movies, and video game designers use CAD to bring to life other-worldly scenes and heroes and villains for today’s favorite games. And hobbyists around the world have discovered CAD as the primary source for creating anything they wish to make with one of today’s popular cutting-edge tools, the 3D printer.

CAD is not difficult to learn. As a matter of fact, it could be argued that CAD makes creating things easier. It’s in the name — Computer-Aided Design. You’ll be using your Computer (or laptop) to Design things where the software will Aid you in your work. Can’t draw a perfect circle or a believable cube? Don’t worry – let CAD do the hard work for you. Have an image in your head that you’re having trouble getting out on paper? Let CAD guide your hands and help you draw straight lines and nice curves and bring that image to life on screen.
