What is AutoCAD?
AutoCAD is a software application developed for 2D and 3D computer-aided design (CAD) and drafting. It was first released in 1982 by Autodesk, and has come a long way since then. Currently being marketed in its 18th generation, this software is intended for use by a range of industries, including: architects, project managers, and engineers.
Created for intermediate AutoCAD users, Infinite Skills has released three computer based training courses that will show you how you can improve your AutoCAD skills and get the most out of this software program. These training courses are sure to help you improve the way you work on your own drafting projects! Expert author Shaun Bryant teaches all three specialized courses.
1. AutoCAD Blocks and Dynamic Blocks will have you working faster and more efficiently in AutoCAD. When creating blocks, Shaun stresses the importance of making objects into a block (making them easier to work with), and to include dynamic properties. He also encourages you to utilize all of the tools available to you. See below for a sample tutorial video, or click here to view the entire course and see more sample tutorial videos.
2. AutoCAD Plotting and Publishing will give you a deeper understanding of this subject, allowing you to apply your skills to your company or organization to further enhance your design workflow. Shaun will show you what’s in the AutoCAD output tab and the tools available on the application menu in order to plot and publish effectively, and be more productive when doing so.

3. AutoCAD – Working Smarter and Faster will teach you expert tips and tricks to make you a more productive worker in AutoCAD. Learning how to offset polylines and how to use the inquiry tools will make you a more rounded AutoCAD user, thus allowing you to become more effective in the workplace. One of Shaun’s tricks is to create a block rather than use individual objects (this is further explained in our Blocks and Dynamic Blocks training course). He also encourages you to utilize the tools available to you, such as dynamic blocks.
