Your instructor, Reid Addis, received his Bachelor of Architecture from Cornell University and his Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania. Reid taught architectural design and history courses at the Boston Architectural Center and University. He currently teaches CAD courses at Moore College of Art in Philadelphia. He has been working with AutoCAD since 1987, and had worked with Architectural Desktop since its first release.

This training package includes 2 courses:

  1. AutoCAD Architecture 2013 Training - 19 Hours
  2. AutoCAD 2013 Essentials Training (for beginners)

This training covers the following areas:

  • Introduction to AutoCAD Architecture | Quick Start | Productivity Tools
  • Introduction to Content | Conceptual Design Tools | Building Geometry | More Geometry
  • Adding Components | Sections and Elevations | Annotation | Detailing
  • Understanding the Display System | Using AutoCAD Architecture Layer Tools
  • Layout Design Objects | Organizing Projects with the Drawing Management System
  • Advanced Building Geometry | Publishing from the Project Navigator
  • Creating Custom Styles and Components | Graphic Presentation and Visualization
  • Working with Others | Troubleshooting

As a flexible CAD training solution, you can sort the lessons and progress from beginner to advanced topics; or just review seldom used commands and added functionality of new releases.

Features & Benefits of AutoCAD Architecture 2013 Training CBT:

  • Use at Your Office or at Home
    Training software can be installed on a PC or laptop.
  • Powerful Keyword Search
    Quickly locate relevant lessons or reference seldom used commands.
  • Sort Lessons By Skill Level
