AutoCAD® software has done a great job for you so far, but you're ready to start using BIM. You've created some great 2D drawings as architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals, but it is time to move forward. AutoCAD Architecture is just your first step down the BIM road. See how transitioning from AutoCAD or any basic drafting package to AutoCAD Architecture can be easier than you thought. We explore some of the powerful features available in AutoCAD Architecture that can help you reduce your production time and provide greater control over your drawing process simply by incorporating some basic architectural features into your drawings. See the benefits of wall, door, and window styles. This class is not intended to move you completely to 3D, but to give you more tools to produce your 2D drawings in less time, while still creating a 3D model.

Key Learnings

  • Explain production benefits
  • Use a more productive way to draw
  • Move beyond lines, circles, and arcs
  • Describe an approach for a successful implementation and start down the BIM path
