Modules Available 21-30

Module 21
(Course Code: M21) (Order Now!) View perspective image - Created using LT 2000!

In this module we will learn how to set our 3D drawing up in a perspective view. Thus far we have only looked at our 3D model in isometric view only. Commands to be covered: DVIEW > Distance/POints/PAn/Zoom/CLip/Hide.

16 Steps.

Module 22
(Course Code: M22) (Order Now!)

We will learn about XREFs in this module. The different ways to xref a drawing and how that XREF can be incorporated back as one drawing. We will also examine related commands such as XREF >ATTACH; XREF > OVERLAY; VISRETAIN; XLOADCTL; XREF > RELOAD; XREF > BIND.

18 Steps.

Module 23
(Course Code: M23) (Order Now!)

In this module we will create a template (.DWT) file. This file is basically a drawing with a special extension called .DWT. This type of file is used to store standard company CAD system settings that are needed for most projects. This is one tool we can use to provide CAD uniformity for our business.

Information we will store in this template file will be: Standard set of layers; Page Setups; our standard Dimension Styles; and some specific system variables (commands) that we feel are important to our setup. The variables we will add are: REGENMODE; VIEWRES; FILLETRAD; VISRETAIN.

22 Steps.

Module 24
(Course Code: M24) (Order Now!)

In this module we will look at the AutoCAD programming language AutoLISP. AutoLISP is also used by IntelliCAD and even AutoCAD LT with the help of the DRCAuto addon program called LT Toolkit.

AutoLISP (LISP) can be used in a couple different ways and can range from simple tasks to very complex tasks. We will naturally concentrate on the simple programs in this module.

16 Steps.

Module 25
(Course Code: M25) (Order Now!) View tile layout image

In this module we will learn how to insert images in AutoCAD and even AutoCAD LT with the help of the DRCAuto addon program called !SlingShot (a free addon to LT). Even some versions of IntelliCAD are able to insert images. We will look at the different tools available for editing these images once they have been inserted.

Commands we will cover are: ImageAttach; ImageClip; Image (Manager); ImageAdjust; ImageQuality; Transparency.

17 Steps.

Module 26
(Course Code: M26) (Order Now!)

This module is a little different from the rest. It is theoretical and there are no set exercises to carry out. We will learn the structure of the AutoCAD menu and the alias files and how they can be customised to your needs.

Module 27
(Course Code: M27) (Order Now!)

We will convert some of this drawing to 3D in this module. We will learn how to do this using the 3DFACE and RULESURF commands.

Module 28
(Course Code: M28) (Order Now!)

In this module we will add wall lights to our building. We will also re-create the roof using the EDGESURF command. We will use the REVSURF command for the lights. We will also use the PLINE > ARC command.

Module 29
(Course Code: M29) (Order Now!)

In this module we will learn some basic 3D operations whilst dealing with 2D objects. These will serve to familiarize ourselves with standard maths operations on standard 2D geometries. These concepts will be applied to 3D geometries in future modules. We will cover the DELOBJ, REGION, UNION, INTERSECT and SUBTRACT commands.

Module 30
(Course Code: M30) (Order Now!)

In this module we will learn how to convert a 2D drawing to a 3D solid drawing. Commands to be covered are EXTRUDE, CYLINDER, BOX, WEDGE, UNION, SUBTRACT and SOLIDEDIT > SEPARATE.
