Description

In this set of AutoCAD tutorials, we'll take a step-by-step approach to creating a foundation plan. We'll begin the project by importing an external reference file and setting up a few initial drawing layers for the foundation plan. From there, we'll explore a few easy-to-use tools to create the footing and foundation wall for the perimeter of our floor plan. Next we'll create and place the isolated footings at their exact locations throughout the floor plan. Once we have all the concrete drawn and hatch patterns applied we'll then add some text and dimensions to further illustrate the foundation design. By the end of this course you'll be able to use a handful of tools along with some simple tricks to quickly and accurately draw a foundation plan for virtually any structure. Software required: AutoCAD 2015.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there, I'm Pierre Derenoncourt, in this set of tutorials we'll take a step by step approach to creating a foundation plan in AutoCAD. We'll begin the project by importing an external reference file and setting up a few initial drawing layers for our foundation plan. From there, we'll explore a few easy to use tools to create the footing and foundation wall for the perimeter of our floor plan. Next, we'll create and place the isolated footings at their exact locations throughout the interior of our floor plan. Once we have all the concrete drawn, and all hatch patterns applied, we'll then add some text and dimensions to further illustrate the foundation design. By the end of this course, you'll be able to use a handful of tools along with some simple tricks to quickly and accurately draw a foundation plan for virtually any structure. So with that, I'm ready to get started, and I'll meet you in the next lesson.
