Description

In this set of tutorials, we'll learn how to use AutoCAD's 3D environment and tools to create assembly drawings. We'll begin by modeling the exterior shell of the bottle opener using several surface and solid modeling tools including planar, extrude, and subtract, just to name a few. From there, we'll continue using solid and surface modeling tools to create the rest of the 3D model. Once the model is complete, we'll work in Layout to create a view that we'll annotate with multileaders, text, and even a parts and assembly table. By the end of this course, you'll be able to use the 3D environment in AutoCAD to create technical drawings with speed and efficiency. Software required: AutoCAD 2015.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there. I'm Pierre Derenoncourt. In this set of tutorials we'll learn how to use AutoCAD's 3D environment and tools to create assembly drawings. We'll begin by modeling the outside of the bottle opener in our project. We'll be using several surface and solid modeling tools, including Planar, Extrude, and even Subtract, just to name a few. From there we'll continue using these tools to create the rest of the 3D model and its components. Once the model is complete, we'll work in Layout to create a view that will later annotate with multileaders, text, and even a table for assembly and parts. By the end of this course you'll be able to use the 3D work environment in AutoCAD to create technical drawings with speed and efficiency. So, with that, I'm ready to get started, and I'll meet you in the next lesson.
