Participants are introduced to the AutoCAD drawing environment and the necessary skills to begin creating and editing drawings. The focus of this course is on using accurate and efficient techniques to drawing and modifying basic shapes. No AutoCAD experience is necessary, but participants are expected to be comfortable opening, saving and closing files; moving, copying and deleting files; locating files in different folders and reading blueprints.Exercises for the workshop are drawn from a variety of disciplines, including part design, facility layout, architectural drafting and schematics. Participants for each workshop are surveyed to determine their areas of interest and when possible, exercises are tailored to match the needs of the workshop attendees.
