Description

In this set of tutorials, we'll learn how to draw a wall and foundation detail in AutoCAD. We'll begin the process with the foundation where we'll use layers, lines, and hatch patterns to create the different elements of our foundation system. From there, we'll take a similar approach and draw the wall system as well as any structural connections. Finally, we'll look at a few ways to use line weights and line color to give your drawing a clean and easy to read look. Software required: AutoCAD 2014.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there, I'm Pierre with Digital Tutors, and Autodesk authorized publisher. In this set of tutorials, we'll learn how to draw a slab detail in AutoCAD. We'll begin the process with the foundation, where we'll use layers, lines, and also hatch patterns to create the different elements of our foundation system. From there, we'll take a similar approach and start drawing the wall, and all the components within that wall system, as well as any structural connections that might be holding that wall together. Finally, I'll show you a few ways that we can use line weights, and also line color to give your drawing a clean and easy to read look. So with that, I'm ready to get started, and I'll see you in the next lesson.
