What you'll be learn.

AutoCAD is a commercial computer-aided design (CAD) and drafting software application developed and marketed by Autodesk. It allows the creation and modification of geometric models with an almost infinite capacity to develop all types of structures and objects. This ability to work in different fields has made AutoCAD transcend its traditional use in the world of architecture and engineering, to enter the world of graphic and interior design. Currently, AutoCAD has a multitude of specialized auxiliary tools which cover every kind of industrial fields related to 2D design and 3D modeling.

2D Vs. 3D

If you’re looking for CAD software that provides 2D & 3D creation opportunities, then look no further. However, if you’re looking for something that’ll allow you to create complex 3D models, then you may be disappointed. Undoubtedly, AutoCAD works best when creating detailed and accurate 2D models.

While 3D model creation is a possibility, its limitations quickly become apparent and, in some cases, frustrating. It simply wasn’t built to be used as a dedicated 3D model creation tool. Instead, its functionality truly shines when used to create 2D designs and in-depth blueprints.

Despite the complexity associated with CAD software as a whole, AutoCAD features an easy-to-use interface, enabling users to quickly find the tools they need through large icons and a clutter-free layout. More experienced users, or experimenters, can allow macros to create shortcuts to help them speed up tool access.

For 2D, users can leverage AutoCAD to quickly draft detailed designs with greater accuracy as there is no need to use drawing instruments in a digital landscape. With these tools, users can automatically create dimensions that move automatically when the object is moved. Detailed elevation drawings become far easier to create and view, including drafting.

Revision clouds can be used to show where objects or elements have been revised, making communication easier between team members, but more importantly, giving a clear framework for internal project documentation.

3D falls behind significantly with ease of use. While you can convert 2D images to 3Dand vice versa, the complexity becomes noticeable when you create a new 3D model. The interface then plays against you as navigating in a 3D space can cause headaches. Unless you are an experienced user, switching over to 3D can feel like starting from square one all over again.

Navigating within the 3D interface allows you to view your object from all angles and manipulate your depth of view. Section plane creates a live cross-section, making the inner details of your model viewable for extra intricate depth.
