Different engineering software help to perform calculations and operations that allow industries to obtain the best designs and operations. Diverse platforms include diverse and unique options alongside keywords, skills, and tools. AutoCAD is a leading Computer-Aided Design software made by Autodesk used by hundreds of industries every day. It has many useful features that help create reliable designs that help these industries to make precise and complex designs.
AutoCAD is the best software to begin your CAD career and start the CAD learning experience as it provides a free educational version that is relatively easy to download. The first screen you will get when you start AutoCAD is shown below the Quick Access toolbar. At the top is the quick access toolbar beside the Autodesk title, it can be edited to have some commonly used commands, some are already there such as a new file, open, save, etc.
To start a new drawing, you can simply click on start drawing and another tab will open titled New Drawing. This will be the default template that will open. To select a command, you can go to any of the various options available on the ribbon/toolbar or just type the command on the keyboard. Let us go through a few of the common commands that are used in AutoCAD and their keywords (these can be found when you hover the cursor over the icons on the ribbon) Line command selected.
The workspace can essentially change the commands and the types of commands that you see in the ribbon. You can change it according to what type of work you want to initiate or begin. Although AutoCAD has a great amount of application for two-dimensional drawings, there is wide importance in 3D drawing, sketching, and analysing.
Thus, you have great software at your disposal if you love designing and want to go the hard distance.
For beginners, flames not allowed...(just by the staff )
