Fundamental 3D Design With AutoCAD And AutoCAD LT - The Step By Step Tutorials

It is proven in application, easy to follow, and written by end users for end users, as discussed under the next few headings. Here is an example of what people think about our Autocad training material. If you would like your comments to appear, just use our Feedback Page in Section E of the website to let us know what you think:-

"...This was great! - Can't beleive the pure LACK of simple instruction within school as well as Auto Desk itself - Keep going, this kind of 'spelled out', step-by-step instruction is going to make your company leading edge if you manage it well..."

A Free 3D Autocad Training Course That is Proven in Application

Since we are a 3D design company specializing in offering CAD 3D design services on 'live' designs for our client base, we are in a unique position to share our 15 years of 3D CAD design experience and decided to create our own online Autocad 3D training course. The result is that our 3D Autocad training course is much higher quality because as well as covering 3D geometry construction and drawings, the training also covers layer structures that allow collaborative working to happen easily and even gives training to understand the management of 3D designs and the 3D Design Process.

Our Autocad 3D tutorials unfold in the order and context needed for 'live' 3D design methods and cover BOTH levels of 3D Autocad training. The first level of learning 3D Autocad is how to create 3D geometry and then use it to get the subsequent drawings for parts or for buildings or for mechanical assemblies. The second level of our 3D Autocad tutorials applies to ALL 3D CAD design software and shows the correct stages for the '3D design process' as it would happen for 'live' 3D designs. Autocad 3D training for this second level of awareness is NOT available from traditional CAD design courses such as colleges and dealerships because they lack experience of large scale 'live' 3D design projects. We believe we are the only 3D design company offering a 3D Auto cad design course that is able to give training about the 3D design process and layer structures.

The evidence for this is that we find a large percentage of existing 3D users are completely unaware that the '3D design process' has to be tackled differently to the '2D design process' if the advantages of 3D CAD design are to be maximized to their full potential. This evidence goes on to suggest that in their effort to learn Autocad 3D design, existing 3D users have only had 3D CAD geometry training without any '3D design process' or 'layer structures' training. Our course addresses this and thus takes users to a 'Professional 3D Drawing Office level' by covering layer structures that allow a seamless collaboration with colleagues and partners - a vital part of 'Professional Level' 3D Cad design.

Lack of awareness about collaborative layer structures and the differences between the '3D design process' and the '2D design process' might be the reason that drawing offices in companies are still uneasy about moving to 3D CAD design methods.

Some of the subtle but vital factors about the '3D design process' that we address during our CAD design course are given at the start of Section B - Understanding 3D.

Easy to Follow 3D Autocad Training

Our free 3D Autocad training course has been thoroughly tested with genuine students during its development to maximize understanding of the entire 3D CAD design process as it would happen in a 'live' design environment. These 3D Autocad tutorials use clear, concise and unambiguous instructions throughout, giving the trainee exactly what is needed and at the appropriate time during the process of learning 3D Autocad. You even have access to anexpert 3D user simply by using the 'help' email address at the bottom of the tutorials pages. It is very rare for people to request help from the 3D design expert, but it is available for the duration of the entire course so feel free to use it at any time... Just send an email.

Autocad 3D tutorials By End Users for End Users

We believe we are the only Autocad training provider that is a genuine 3D design company and hope you agree the result is a BIG improvement in 3D CAD training quality when compared to traditional sources of learning 3D design such as colleges and dealerships. The proof is on this website, so just log on and learn...

Experience levels - Getting the Most From these Autocad and Autocad lt Tutorials

The training material is applicable to all Auto cad and Autocad LT releases after 1993, right up to the latest software versions. People with more than 80 hours of 2D Autocad experience will benefit most, but feel free to have a go. You might know more than you think.

3D advanced users will also find the site useful because our experiences show they are unlikely to be aware of what the '3D Design Process' entails.

3D Novices

Auto cad 3D novices should start to learn 3D design by following the link at the bottom of this home page headed "Auto cad 3D Capability" and then move to:-
Section B (Understanding 3D) followed by

Section C (Instructions for using the tutorials) and then
Section D (The Tutorials.)
Section G (Project Management) might also be of interest.

By working through section D, novices will create a 3D model and the projection drawings for it, followed by creating an assembly model and the associated drawings. You will NOT need to register or log-in to get the full set of Autocad 3D modeling tutorials - all for FREE.

3D Intermediate and 3D Advanced users.

Intermediate and advanced 3D users should start with understanding the importance of Layer and Block management as follows:-

Section B (Understanding 3D) followed by
Section G (Project Management)

If you then feel our material is going to be appropriate for understanding more about the '3D design process,' you will also need the following:-

Section C (Instructions for using the tutorials) and
Section D (The Tutorials)

The simple assembly model created in Section D is needed for conveying the '3D design process' issues that happen during a 'live' 3D design. Advanced users should NOT value the simple assembly model for gaining Autocad 3D modeling experience because it is to easy. However, since it plays an essential part for understanding the '3D design process' issues it will need to be completed anyway. Treat the simple modelling exercises as a good chance to test the clarity and style of our training material. Be sure to follow the instructions carefully the way novices would, or you will gain a poor impression of our material - It will be your loss, because the material is for your benefit, not ours.

Section J gives details about our 3D design services and Cad drafting services along with information about our short term consultancy services to manage the transition to 3D design methods. Most companies recognize that changes of methodology - be it a need for new financial software, new customer management software or new design methods - are infrequent but necessary steps that carry an element of risk. Our consultancy service for managing the transition to 3D design converts that risk in to a beneficial certainty. The benefit arises from moving to significantly more efficient 3D design methods. The certainty arises from knowing that change will be overseen by a professional 3D Design organization familiar with industry standard techniques regarding the ' 3D design process ' thus ensuring the change over happens quickly, accurately, and correctly. Companies that move to 3D methods without help from a professional design organization such as ours, find they face a long learning curve to establish their own '3D design process ' from scratch. The consultancy period depends on the number of people doing design related work, but is usually 30 hours for small companies rising to 400 hours for large design departments. These are the total hours and accumulate over 2 or 3 or 4 visits. Please telephone at any time for a free of charge conversation about the transition to 3D design methods.

Good luck with learning 3D design, and please feel to contact us using the Feedback page on Section E of the website with your comments and opinions at any time.
