Parametric design tools aren’t just for programs like Inventor software, Revit software, or AutoCAD Civil 3D software. There is also a set of parametric drawing tools that you can use to create dynamic relationships and constraints between objects in AutoCAD software. The parametric drawing tools will revolutionize the way that you draw and edit objects in AutoCAD software. This class will introduce you to parametric drawing in AutoCAD software by using both geometric and dimensional constraints to add intelligence to your objects. You will learn how using Auto Constrain and Inferred Constraints can help you quickly add constraints and change your process from drafting to modeling. If you’ve ever wanted geometry in your drawing to update based on changes that you’ve made to other objects, or if you’ve wanted to type a new value into a dimension and have the object update based on this new value, this class is for you. This session features AutoCAD. AIA Approved
