Event Details

2 days

AutoCAD 2012 Intermediate is the second in a series of courses in AutoCAD. While our initial course, AutoCAD 2012 Fundamentals, focuses on the basic tools to create a drawing and setup files, this course continues with more sophisticated techniques that extend a student's mastery of the program. For example, users go beyond the basic skill of inserting a block to learn how to create blocks, and beyond the basic skill of using a template to understand the process of setting up a template.

Who Should Attend
Experienced users of AutoCAD 2012.

We assume in this class that the student is comfortable with the basics of creating an AutoCAD drawing as taught in AutoCAD 2012 Fundamentals. Our teaching strategy is to demonstrate the versatility of AutoCAD by showing a range of options to achieve a particular result, and to suggest where one option can be better than another under given circumstances. Our hope is that students will practice the topics and concepts discussed in this class, and apply them in ways appropriate for their work. Some of the topics coverd include:

  • Using more advanced editing and construction techniques
  • Adding parametric constraints to objects
  • Creating local and global blocks
  • Setting up layers, styles, and templates
  • Learning advanced plotting and publishing options


Before attending this class, students should have:

  • A working knowledge of basic design/drafting procedures and terminology
  • A working knowledge of Windows 9x, ME, NT 4.0, 2000, XP, or 7
