Autocad 2d

by Design Workshop Sydney

Since the early 1980s Autocad 2d has defined the use of computers in drafting for architecture, engineering and design. While there are many competitors around today, the program remains the most comprehensive of the current options on the market. In our Autocad 2d courses we explore the essential features of the program.  autocad-2d
In this courses, we start at an absolute beginner’s level and very quickly work though a wide range of 2d drafting techniques. No previous knowledge of Autocad is required although general computer literacy is assumed. Autocad is a large program and there is much to cover, but our course focuses on those parts of the application which appear in the LT version, omitting higher level functions such as 3d modeling which we cover in our Autocad 3d course.
Autocad is a tool that enables us to communicate design concepts to others. Today, almost all structures, built environments, machine tools and consumer products are created using computer-aided design software, specifically Autocad 2d. Among the industries using the program are Architectural, Mechanical, Electrical and Electronic, Engineering and Construction (AEC), Facilities Management, Geographical Information Systems, Multimedia, Surveying, Civil Engineering, and town-planning, as well as smaller industries like sign-writing and the garment industry.
Created as an MS-DOS program in 1982, Autocad runs on Windows operating systems, and remains the industry leader in Computer-Aided Drafting (or Design), despite the many competitors which have come and gone over the last 30 years. To keep up with the increasing complexity of the design and drafting processes, Autocad has grown more complex, but the basic principles remain simple and logical. Introduced in 1993 Autocad LT is a cut-down, cheaper version of the full program which does not include 3d and some other advanced features; LT is nevertheless a very powerful program.
