This intermediate-to-advanced hands-on lab offers AutoCAD 3D software veterans a chance to explore the 2D model documentation of 3D models from AutoCAD 2017 software. After creating base views and projected views from 3D solid or surface models, we’ll explore sectional views. Using 3D models, we will create full, half, offset, and aligned sectional drawing views. We will create circular and rectangular detail views. We will explore editing techniques of the 3D models and update the derived drawing views. We will also explore undocumented Auxiliary View features. If you used AutoCAD 3D software in the past to create 2D multiview drawings from 3D models, attend this class and get ready to be surprised. This session features AutoCAD, AutoCAD 360, and AutoCAD Mechanical.
