February 7, 2018

Going from 2D to 3D in AutoCAD doesn’t have to be scary. 3D modeling in AutoCAD is an incredible way to take your work to the next level. If you’re just getting started (or even thinking about it), check out these AU 2017 videos with tips and tricks for 3D.

A Quick Start into AutoCAD 3D Solid Modeling

Our very own Dieter Schlaepfer provides the ultimate class (and promise) to kick-start your work in 3D with “A Quick Start into AutoCAD 3D Solid Modeling.”

“You will learn the basics of 3D solid modeling using only 10 commands,” Dieter writes. “Included are practical techniques, tips, and caveats with real-life models. The goal is to give you a solid introduction, demos, and a road map to 3D solid modeling that will make you functional with as few commands as possible, and avoid overwhelming you with information.”

Don’t miss the video and the handout and presentation that you can find here.

3D Modeling in AutoCAD

For those who are still hesitant about 3D, David Cohen breaks it down in this “3D Modeling in AutoCAD” session.

“Capitalize on your knowledge of 2D to create 3D models entirely in AutoCAD software,” David writes. “In this class, you will learn how to take your ideas from concept to completion by creating and editing solid objects; creating smooth, free-form shapes using meshing tools; and capitalizing on the power of surface modeling…If you thought 3D in AutoCAD was just too hard, think again.”
