Description

In this AutoCAD tutorial we'll learn how to draw a reflected ceiling plan. We'll begin our project by doing a little prep work with a referenced floor plan. We'll delete any items in the plan that may distract from the ceiling. Once we've cleaned up the floor plan, we'll learn how to create symbols representing the various elements in the ceiling design. After creating the symbols, we'll then draw the various types of ceilings for each space within our plan. Next, we'll place the symbols we created onto the ceilings in the floor plan. Finally, we'll add some notes and create a symbols legend to make the plan even easier to understand. By the end of this AutoCAD training, you'll know how to create the various symbols normally included in reflected ceiling plans, and also learn how to create a symbols legend using tables. Software required: AutoCAD 2015.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there, I'm Pierre with Digital Tutors, an Autodesk-authorized publisher. In this set of tutorials, we'll learn how to draw a reflected ceiling plan using AutoCAD. We will begin our project by doing a little prep work with a referenced floor plan. We'll delete any items on that floor plan that might distract from our focus, which is the ceiling. Once we've cleaned up that floor plan, we'll learn how to create symbols representing the various elements within our ceiling design. After creating those symbols, we'll then draw the various types of ceilings for each space within our plan. Next, we'll place the symbols we created on the ceilings throughout the floor plan. Finally we'll add some notes, as well as create a symbols legend to make the plan even easier to understand. By the end of this course, you'll know how to create the various symbols normally used in reflected ceiling plans, and you'll also understand how to create a drawing legend using tables. So with that, I'm ready to get started, and I'll meet you in the next lesson.
