AutoCAD ADVANCED DURATION: THREE DAYS)
The AutoCAD Advanced introduces the concepts behind isometric drawings, 3D modelling in AutoCAD. This course provides candidates with the needed proficiency in the use of AutoCAD software in creating and editing 3D drawings. Topics to be covered includes solid modelling and editing demands, creating 3D models from 2D models and rendering models, plotting 3D models or exporting as images for presentation and many more.
AutoCAD Plant 3D is a plant layout design tool used by designers and engineers to model and document process plants in 3D. AutoCAD Plant 3D teaches new users how to use key features for building, maintaining and creating content for 3D process plant models. Sessions cover creating projects and P&IDs, creating structures, creating equipment, editing specifications and catalogues, adding valves, fittings and pipe supports, creating orthographic drawings and managing data and creating reports.
Steel fabricators typically have very specific standards that govern how their documents look (and what their crews are expecting to see on those documents), candidates for this course will explore how to customize Advance Steel software to accommodate fabricator standards, produce common CNC (computer numerical control) files, and automatically create documents that display the information that fabrication crews can easily read and interpret. The overall goal is to enhance productivity and reduce rework and fabrication errors through customization tools within Advance Steel software.
