Advanced AutoCAD 2011 Training Video

In this Advanced AutoCAD 2011 training video, CAD instructor Brian Benton builds on the groundwork laid in the beginner's AutoCAD course and helps more experienced users learn the important tools that make AutoCAD the go-to application across multiple industries. What sets this tutorial course apart is that it doesn't just go through tools and features one by one, but also helps you develop an overall professional perspective that will help you work more effectively no matter what your purpose is. In addition to exploring more advanced design elements and operations, this AutoCAD tutorial helps you understand the extensive markup and documentation tools built into the application. It is these annotation and reference tools that make the program the perfect collaborative platform for the worlds of engineering, production, and design. Advanced polyline-spline editing, groups, sheet sets, and dynamic blocks are all covered, and you'll also get file management tips that make printing, sharing, and exporting easy. The course also includes an introduction to 3D operations and files to help you work through each lesson. By the completion of this video training course, you will have an advanced understanding of AutoCAD that you can apply to past, present and future versions of this industry standard software. The 10 hours training consists of 112 mini-lessons.

AutoCAD LT 2014 Training Video

In this AutoCAD LT 2014 training course from Brian Benton, you will learn how to create 2D drawings using this lighter version of AutoCAD developed by Autodesk. AutoCAD LT has many of the same powerful features as the full version of AutoCAD does, and this beginners training course will show you how to use those tools and techniques to create your projects. You will start with the basics of AutoCAD, setting up and discovering your workspace. Brian teaches using a hands-on approach, and will show you the important tools you need for your drawings, and how to use them properly. You will learn how to work with units (metric and imperial), create lines and shapes, how to scale, stretch and rotate objects, and how to use precision tools such as OSNAP and Ortho. Brian shows you how to use layers and annotation, explains the difference between paper and model space, and teaches you about plotting and publishing your drawings. Finally, you will create a project from scratch, using everything you learned throughout the video tutorials. Once you have completed all the lessons in this AutoCAD LT 2014 video training, you will be able to use the basic tools and techniques you have learned to create 2D CAD drawings to print or share with your clients. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons. The 14.5 hours training consists of 118 mini-lessons.

Learning Autodesk Revit MEP 2013 Video

In this video based Revit MEP 2013 training course, you will learn the tools and techniques for using this building information modeling software for mechanical, electrical and plumbing design. Suitable for the novice user, this MEP tutorial teaches you how to use the software right from the beginning. No prior Revit MEP experience is required. Starting with the basics of Revit MEP, Simon shows you how to work with the interface, and where the tools you will use are located. You will learn to create a project, and how to use views. Simon explains using component families, and creating zones; even performing building performance analysis is explained. You will learn to design HVAC, piping, plumbing, fire protection, and, of course, electrical systems. Simon even covers detailing, documentation, work sharing, and various methods of presenting your models. By the conclusion of this computer based training course on Revit MEP 2013, you will be familiar with creating mechanical, electrical and plumbing models using this BIM software from Revit. Working files are included to allow you to work on the same models the author is using as you learn with this tutorial.
 The 9.75 hours training consists of 173 mini-lessons.

Advanced Revit Architecture 2012 Training

In this Revit Architecture 2012 Tutorial, Jay Polding continues where he left off in the previous training course, advancing your knowledge of Revit Architecture 2012. You will apply what you learned in the first training course, and learn advanced techniques while working on a real project throughout this training video. Right from the beginning, you start setting up your files for working on this project. You quickly move onto working with a CAD survey, and into creating phases, using site tools, linking files, working on walls, floors, stairs, ramps and so much more. As you continue through this video based training course, you will watch Jay teach you how to setup area schedules, work on detailing, and finally, set up your presentation of the completed project, and share it using a walkthrough, and even printing to a PDF. By the completion of this advanced video tutorial, you will be fully capable of taking a Revit Architecture 2012 project from start to finish. You will have in-depth knowledge of the tools available to you, and how to effectively utilize them. Included are extensive working files so that you can learn by applying the training directly to the same files that the author is working on, right on your own computer. The 10.75 hours training consists of 106 mini-lessons.

Revit MEP 2012 Training Video

In this Autodesk Revit MEP 2012 Training Course, expert Simon Whitbread will teach you how to use this Building Information Modeling software from Autodesk. Starting at the beginning, this video based training course assumes no prior knowledge of this software. The training begins with a tour of the interface and various navigation components in Revit MEP. Quickly diving into the actual application of the Revit MEP tools, you will get hands on experience with functions such as copying and pasting, rotating, aligning, and more. You will continue with topics such as views, families, spaces and zones, and performance analysis. This video based tutorial also contains full chapters specifically focused on HVAC, piping and plumbing systems, and electrical systems. You will finish by exploring subjects such as work-sharing, documenting and sharing your designs. By the conclusion of this Revit MEP video training course, you will be fully capable of designing and adding mechanical, electric and plumbing systems to building designs. Included are extensive working files so that you can work alongside the author as he teaches you the ins and outs of Autodesk Revit MEP. The 8.25 hours training consists of 162 mini-lessons.
