Capitalize on your knowledge of 2D to create 3D models entirely in AutoCAD software. In this class, you will learn how to take your ideas from concept to completion by creating and editing solid objects; creating smooth, free-form shapes using meshing tools; and capitalizing on the power of surface modeling. We'll look at the differences between history- and non-history-based solids and see how models can automatically update when you modify underlying curves or parameters. You will also learn how to control selection and editing with subobject selection filters, as well as glean valuable tips and tricks for navigating and visualizing your AutoCAD 3D models. If you thought 3D in AutoCAD was just too hard, think again.
