In addition to the standard AutoCAD software tools, the AutoCAD Architecture software offers a
host of features that greatly increase the speed and efficiency of architectural drawings. The
software is designed to work from first concept (conceptual design or mass model) through to design
development, working drawings, and facility maintenance
AutoCAD Architecture Fundamentals focuses on the design development, construction documentation,
and visualization features of the AutoCAD Architecture software (the basic tools that the majority
of students require when working)
Creating basic floor plans with walls, doors, and windows.
Creating specialty objects, such as column or ceiling grids, stairs and railings.
Adding roofs and floor slabs.
An introduction to Projects and the Project Navigator.
Adding furniture, fixtures, and equipment.
Displaying elevations, sections, and perspectives.
Marks, tags and schedules, and other documentation.
Drawing cameras, adding lights, and basic rendering
Students should have a solid background in the AutoCAD software because AutoCAD software tools
and concepts are essential for working with the AutoCAD Architecture software. In particular,
students should be familiar with basic 3D viewing tools (preset views, 3D Orbit, and Visual
Styles), layouts, Paper Space/Model Space issues, and external references (XREFS). A working
knowledge of the Ribbon interface is helpful but not essential, as pertinent tools are covered in
the training guide
If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting
aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your
business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
