Autodesk AutoCAD LT

( Duration: 8 Days )

The objective of AutoDesk AutoCAD LT training course is to enable attendees 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.

Part 3 (three days) introduces advanced techniques and teaches you to be proficient in your use of the AutoCAD software. This is done by teaching you how to recognize the best tool for the task, the best way to use that tool, and how to create new tools to accomplish tasks more efficiently.

By attending AutoDesk AutoCAD LT workshop, attendees 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
