AutoCAD Fundamentals enables you to create a basic 2D drawing in AutoCAD. All topics, including features and commands, relate to both AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT unless specifically noted otherwise in the class. The strategy is to start with a few basic tools that enable the student to create and edit a simple drawing, and then continue to develop those tools. Advanced tools such as creating reusable blocks and setting up layers, styles and templates are introduced throughout the class.
Topics in AutoCAD Fundamentals include:
- Understanding the workspace and user interface
- Basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools
- Organizing drawing objects on layers

- Preparing a layout to be plotted
- Adding text, hatching, and dimensions
