    Relationships are everywhere, from traditional relationships like family and friends to wildly popular social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. But did you ever think that your AutoCAD software objects could have relationships? Well they can, and those relationships can be a powerful tool that can make you much more productive. The parametric drawing tools will revolutionize the way that you draw and edit objects in AutoCAD. This class introduces you to parametric drawing in AutoCAD by using both geometric and dimensional constraints to add intelligence to your objects. You learn how using Auto Constrain and Inferred Constraints can help you quickly add constraints and change your process from drafting to modeling. If you have ever wanted geometry in your drawing to update based on changes that you have made to other objects or if you have wanted to type a new value into a dimension and have the object update based on this new value, then this class is for you.

    Key Learnings

    • Create geometric relationships between objects by adding constraints
    • Define dimensional constraints
    • Identify and edit constrained objects
    • Use inferred constraints to have AutoCAD automatically define constraints for you
