AutoCAD 2D Drafting and Annotation Complete Guide is designed to give you a solid understanding of AutoCAD features and capabilities. Every course is designed to use all learning styles from text, audio, video, interactivity, quizzes and practical “Let Me Try” examples.

You’ll follow a workflow-based approach that mirrors the development of projects in the real world, learning 2D drawing skills, editing entities, working with splines and polylines, using layers, creating and editing text, dimensioning, and creating blocks.



To get the most out of this course, we strongly recommend you review every topic within the course, and use all the learning styles to ensure you retain the important information within. We also encourage you to take all the progress tests to ensure you have retained the knowledge, and most importantly practice with the hundreds of real-world, Let Me Try examples.



This course is designed for the new AutoCAD user.  It is recommended that you have a working knowledge of drafting, design or engineering principles and experience with Microsoft Windows.

Right after I designed a fire sprinkler system I submitted the plans to two separate plan reviewers and both of the plan reviewers signed off on…read more
