Autodesk AutoCAD 2017: Working with 3D Models Newly Released

Autodesk AutoCAD 2017: Working with 3D Models Course Description

Duration: 3.00 days (24 hours)

In this course, you will learn the fundamental concepts and workflows for creating 3D models using AutoCAD. You will learn to create solid primitives, solid or surface models from cross-sectional geometry, or composite models from multiple solid models, and you'll learn to add the necessary features to detail, duplicate, and position 3D models.

You will learn to document a 3D design by creating 2D drawings for production and visualization, and you'll learn to convert 2D objects to 3D objects. You will learn to communicate design ideas using visual styles, lights, model walk-through tools, and renderings.
