AutoCAD 2D Tutorial Chapter 1 Introduction -1- AutoCAD 2D Tutorial 1.1 Launching AutoCAD 1. Choose Start from the Windows program manager. 2. Choose Programs, Autodesk ,AutoCAD 2004. 3. Click the AutoCAD 2004 for Windows icon. or 4. Choose the AutoCAD 2004 icon from the desktop. -2- AutoCAD 2D Tutorial 1.2 Text and Graphics Screens The graphics screen and the text screen are two different screens available in the drawing editor. 1. Press Function key F2 on the keyboard. TIPS: Be sure the Model Tab is highlighted at the bottom of the drawing window. “Layouts” will be covered in a later session. The Cursor must be in the drawing window in order to select objects. Maximize the AutoCAD windows to be full screen. This will make the drawings bigger and easier to read. Use ALT + TAB to move between Windows applications. -3- AutoCAD 2D Tutorial 1.3 Cursor Controls the size of the crosshair. The allowable range is from 1 to 100 percent of the total screen. At 100% the ends of the crosshair are never visible. When the size is decreased to 99% or below, the crosshairs have a finite size, and the crosshairs’ ends are visible when moved to the edge of the graphics area. The default size is 5%. 1. Choose Tools, Options… 2. Click the Display TAB. 3. Drag the slider bar in the lower left corner of the dialog to set the cursor size. -4- AutoCAD 2D Tutorial 1.4 Canceling a Command 1. TIP: Pressing Press the ESCAPE (ESC) key on the keyboard. ESC twice -5- clears nested commands.
To succeed in today’s global marketplace, electrical controls designers can no longer afford to rely on generic software applications to get the job done. AutoCAD Electrical software delivers the tools to help design control systems quickly and accurately with significant cost savings. ® Facing these issues? • Creating electrical controls designs with generic software is limiting your productivity. • Errors are reaching the shop floor and causing delivery delays. • Components are not being ordered because of inaccurate bills of materials (BOMs). • Manually adding electrical controls information into 2d or 3d mechanical designs is tedious. • Sharing designs with downstream users is error-prone and difficult. • Designers are spending too much time manually generating reports. • Use of design standards is inconsistent. • Designers are unable to easily find and reuse designs. Discover why so many electrical controls designers are using AutoCAD® Electrical. Image courtesy of Amerimax Home Products, Inc. The Logical Choice for Electrical Controls Design AutoCAD® Electrical is AutoCAD® software for controls designers, purpose-built to create and modify electrical control systems. Automated tasks and comprehensive symbol libraries help to increase productivity, reduce errors, and provide accurate information to manufacturing. Stay ahead of the competition with AutoCAD Electrical software, which offers significant productivity gains over AutoCAD software by automating many of the complex tasks associated with creating accurate, industry-standard electrical control systems. Increase Productivity When engineers create electrical control systems using software not specifically built for electrical design tasks, they must often find manual workarounds to get the job done—wasting valuable design time and limiting productivity. Since AutoCAD Electrical software is AutoCAD for controls designers, it contains many features and benefits that enable users to dramatically increase design efficiency, while maintaining a smooth integration with the familiar AutoCAD environment. A recent study shows up to an 80 percent increase in productivity when moving to AutoCAD Electrical from AutoCAD.* AutoCAD Electrical helps manufacturers get their products to market faster with lower costs. Image courtesy of R.A. Jones Reduce Errors and Comply with Industry Standards As engineers create electrical controls designs using generic tools, it is easy to introduce errors and design inconsistencies. The ability to virtually eliminate errors before they reach the shop floor can provide a distinct competitive advantage. AutoCAD Electrical includes automatic error-checking capabilities that help designers perform real-time diagnostics to catch problems before the build phase of a project. In addition to reducing errors, AutoCAD Electrical helps companies compete in the global marketplace by offering support for regional and international standards. With more than 350,000 components from the industry’s most popular vendors—including more than 3,000 intelligent PLC I/O modules—AutoCAD Electrical provides a comprehensive library of manufacturer content, enabling users to produce consistent, standards-based designs. Manage Design Data Once the design is complete, it is important to share accurate design and part information with manufacturing. Creating crucial parts lists, BOMs, and from/to wire lists using software that is not built specifically for these tasks can waste valuable time and resources. AutoCAD Electrical includes robust automated reporting tools so the design data being shared with downstream users is correct and current. In addition, AutoCAD Electrical is tightly integrated with Autodesk Data Management applications, which enables the efficient and secure exchange of design data and promotes earlier collaboration between design and manufacturing workgroups. Facilitate Collaboration AutoCAD Electrical enables both electrical and mechanical teams to work collaboratively by making it easy to share the electrical design intent for cables and conductors directly with team members using Autodesk® Inventor® software, adding valuable electrical controls design data to the digital prototype. Users can also publish DWF™ files directly from ...

Students will learn the experience of product design by designing, building, and refining a piece of original furniture from scratch. Basic design principles such as ergonomics, mechanical robustness, and manufacturability will be taught in conjunction with traditional drawing skills and computer‐aided drafting techniques. Building techniques will be taught in the mockup and prototyping stages, beginning with handheld layout and cutting tools, progressing to machine‐powered hand tools and finally computer‐controlled fabricators, including 3D printing, waterjet and CNC mill. The final project will be a finished, finalized version of their furniture piece.

Control Your Project Outcomes Fully integrate, analyze, and communicate your design models and gain insight and predictability into construction. The Autodesk® Navisworks® family of products helps architecture, engineering, and construction teams improve control over the outcome of their projects. With Navisworks solutions, detailed design models can be aggregated and reviewed by all project stakeholders, helping users to benefit from the competitive advantages of building information modeling (BIM) workflows. BIM processes allow team members to explore a project’s key physical and functional characteristics digitally before it is built, helping to deliver projects faster, more economically, and with reduced environmental impact. With Autodesk Navisworks solutions, users can combine design data created in applications—such as the AutoCAD ® software and Autodesk ® Revit®-based applications—with geometry and information from other design tools in multiple file formats, regardless of file size. The result is a whole-project view that helps all project stakeholders to make better design decisions, increase accuracy of construction documentation, and predict performance and planning. The Autodesk Navisworks software family offers three products to provide project stakeholders with the right tools to help collaborate, coordinate, and communicate more effectively. Autodesk Navisworks Manage Autodesk ® Navisworks® Manage software is a comprehensive review solution for analysis, simulation, and coordination of project information. Multidisciplinary design data can be combined into a single integrated project model for interference management and clash detection. Navisworks Manage helps design and construction professionals anticipate and avoid potential problems before construction. Autodesk Navisworks Simulate Autodesk ® Navisworks® Simulate software provides advanced tools for reviewing, analysis, simulation, and coordination of project information. Comprehensive 4D simulation, animation and photorealism capabilities enable the demonstration of design intent and simulation of construction to provide better insight and predictability. Real-time navigation combines with review toolsets to support collaboration among the project team. Autodesk Navisworks Freedom Autodesk ® Navisworks® Freedom software is the free* viewer for NWD and 3D DWF™ files. Navisworks Freedom extends the whole-project view to all project stakeholders, helping to improve communication and collaboration.
