AutoCAD® Mechanical 2015 Training Course

(now includes the AutoCAD 2015 Essentials Series)
A full-featured AutoCAD Mechanical training course covering beginner to advanced concepts, and everything in between, for Autodesk's AutoCAD Mechanical 2015 as part of results-driven manufacturing. In 125 individual video tutorials and over 7 hours of instructor-led training, Nicholas Bouray provides comprehensive coverage of AutoCAD Mechanical, demonstrating how to improve the mechanical design process by utilizing libraries and standards-based parts and tools. New users of the software will become familiar with the AutoCAD Mechanical interface, 2D and 3D drawing and editing features, content libraries, powerful annotation tools, intelligent objects, and much more. Experienced Mechanical users will discover commands to increase productivity, speed up design, streamline your everyday tasks, and utilize Autodesk 360 for collaboration.

This training package includes 2 courses:

  1. AutoCAD Mechanical 2015 Training - 7 Hours
  2. AutoCAD 2015 Essentials Training (for beginners) - 15 Hours

This training covers the following areas:

  • AutoCAD Mechanical Environment | Creating Designs
  • Managing and Using Content Libraries | Annotations and Documentation
  • Designing Assemblies with Layer Groups | Designing Assemblies with Structure
  • Documenting Parts and Assemblies | Analysis and Validation
  • Implementing Preferences and Standards | Interoperability and Collaboration

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.

"I am probably one of your largest promoters... your product is a hundred times more informative than any [...] seminar or training session."
