AutoCAD 2011 Training Course AutoDesk  

Our instructor led video based AutoCAD 2011 training course is designed to take you from a beginner to the advance levels. Our video based lessons, consist of 35 hours of training , to help you learn to design and shape the world around you as you become skilled in this software's powerful features and investigate the world's leading 2D and 3D CAD tools. Discover how to speed documentation, share ideas seamlessly, and explore ideas more intuitively in 3D. As you learn to utilize the software to it's full capacity, you will learn to manage your projects, and customize your user interface for the ultimate flexibility and for your specific needs. You will learn to prepare your drawings for print or final output, and much more with our 2D and 3D training program. Now is the time to broaden your CAD knowledge, with our instructor led AutoCAD course.

Our training program covers the latest features for  2D and 3D drawings
• Navigation bar: There is a new navigation bar that lives on the right side of the screen and is transparent until you hover over it. It is the new home for the ZOOM and PAN commands, as well as ORBIT and a couple of others.
• 3D Object Snaps: There are new 3D objects snaps, such as vertex, midpoint on edge and center of face.
• Materials Browser: The new Materials Browser is a separate palette rather than part of the Tool palettes. There are many new materials to explore
• Select Similar: The SELECTSIMILAR command allows you to select objects in a drawing that are similar to a selected object or objects.
• Point clouds: Point clouds are huge arrays of points created by 3D scanners and the like.
