AUTOCAD FOR BEGINNERS

What Does AutoCAD Stand For?

Those wondering ‘what is AutoCAD?’ or ‘what is AutoCAD drawing?’ should know that CAD stands for ‘computer-aided design’ — Autodesk created the most popular program. The Autodesk company prides itself on being a ‘leader in 3D design, engineering, and entertainment software’, per their website. Through their website, AutoCAD and several other software programs are available for free.

AutoCAD is a computer-aided tool that allows many different types of designers to create diverse kinds of drawings and designs. This program helps designers create their designs much more quickly than by hand and offers many quick, easy, and useful features, such as copy and paste.

What is AutoCAD Used For?

AutoCAD can create any 2D drawing and 3D model or construction that can be drawn by hand. The program also allows the user to group or layer objects, keep objects in a database for future use, and manipulate properties of objects, such as size, shape, and location.

AutoCAD has numerous applications in a wide range of fields. The program can be used for simple projects, such as graphs or presentations, or complex designs, like drawing up the architecture of a building. Some other practical applications may include:

  • Interior designs
  • Aeronautical designs
  • Logos
  • Fine art
  • Maps
  • Greeting cards
  • Engineering designs
  • Architectural designs

Who Uses AutoCAD?

As mentioned, AutoCAD has numerous capabilities that can be applied to an array of projects in various fields. Various kinds of designers are most likely to use the program and it is more common in design-centered fields, like architecture and engineering. However, many other professions, such as fine artists and mathematicians, may use the program to create visuals for their work. Here are a few other examples of careers that likely use AutoCAD:

  • Interior designers
  • Electrical drafters
  • Civil drafters
  • Mechanical drafters
  • Fashion designers
  • Graphic designers
  • Set designers
  • Process drafters

2 D ANIMATIONWITH CS

When you hear the term 2D Animation, especially web animations, you probably imagine complicated Javascript codes, Flash or other hard-to-learn proprietary software programs.

That’s how it was until a few years ago. You had to spend days, or months mastering complicated software or learning a lot of syntax until you could create decent web animations.

But no more!

CSS3, and along with it, CSS Animations were released a few years ago, and they’ve have made your learning process MUCH easier.

If you know the very basics of HTML and CSS, which anyone who has anything to do with coding/web design does, you’re all set.

Spend a few hours learning a bunch of CSS3 Animation syntaxes, and you’ll be creating awesome web effects and key frame animations in no time at all!

Anyone can become a web animator now.

 

What will you learn in our course?

  1. How to manipulate every single web element of your website – change it’s shape, size, position, angle and so much more.
  2. How to create slick animations and transition effects for your web pages – rotating buttons, boxes that automatically change color and size, web elements that move around the web page based on the conditions you give, etc etc.
  3. How to create frame by frame of every single animation effect you want – a ball that moves around your given path, multiple color changes within a specific moving cars,
  4. How to time your animations, delay them, repeat them a certain number of times (even infinite), give multiple states to them, give them custom speeds, etc. and so much more!

Why should you choose our course?

  1. We like to be thorough in our teaching. You’ll find everything you need to start creating awesome 2D animations in this course. You won’t have to look anywhere else.
