Description

In this set of tutorials, we'll take a step by step approach to creating a site plan for a residential property. We'll begin by importing a building footprint that also displays the first floor plan. We'll then begin drawing property lines, driveways, landscaping elements as well as utility easements. Next we'll focus our attention to what's going on outside of the site and draw as well as label surrounding properties and buildings. We'll also use a simple technique to create unique looking trees and shrubs throughout the site. Finally we'll add text and Multileaders to call out elements within our plan and to better tell the story of our site. By the end of this training you'll gain an understanding what elements to include in your site plan as well as how to draw them. Software required: AutoCAD 2014.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hey there. I'm Pierre with Digital-Tutors, an Autodesk authorized publisher. In this set of tutorials, we'll take a step-by-step approach to creating a site plan for a residential project. We'll begin by importing a building footprint, which also displays the first floorplan. We'll then begin drawing property lines, driveways, and even landscape elements, as well as utility easements. Next, we'll focus our attention to what's going on outside of our site and draw, as well as label, surrounding properties and buildings. We'll also use a simple technique to create unique-looking trees and shrubs throughout our site. Finally, we'll add text and multileaders to call out elements within our plan and to better tell the story of what's going on on our site. By the end of this course, you'll gain an understanding of what elements to include in your site plan, as well as how to draw them. With that, I'm ready to get started, and I'll see you in the next lesson.
