Autodesk AutoCAD LT

( Duration: 5 Days )

The objective of AutoDesk AutoCAD LT Training course is to enable Participants to create a basic 2D drawing in the AutoCAD software. This training is divided into two parts that can be taken independently.

Part 1 (three days) covers the essential core topics for working with the AutoCAD software. The teaching strategy is to start with a few basic tools that enable the Participant to create and edit a simple drawing, and then continue to develop those tools. More advanced tools are also introduced throughout the training .

Part 2 (two days) continues with more sophisticated techniques that extend your mastery of the program. For example, here you go beyond the basic skill of inserting a block to learning how to create blocks, and beyond the basic skill of using a template to understand the process of setting up a template.

By attending AutoDesk AutoCAD LT workshop, Participants will learn:

  • Understanding the AutoCAD workspace and user interface
  • Using basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools
  • Organizing drawing objects on layers
  • Inserting reusable symbols (blocks)
  • Preparing a layout to be plotted
  • Adding text, hatching, and dimensions
  • Using more advanced editing and construction techniques
  • Adding parametric constraints to objects
  • Creating local and global blocks
  • Setting up layers, styles, and templates
  • Using advanced plotting and publishing options

  • A working knowledge of basic design/drafting procedures and terminology
  • A working knowledge of any operating system
