2D Computer Aided Design, 3D Modeling, Basic Rendering and Animation are the main activities one can do with Autodesk’s AutoCAD. AutoCAD contains numerous tools and commands and requires a lot of input in self-training, since there are inadequate resources for most designers to get a formal training in AutoCAD.
No matter what your level of prowess in AutoCAD is, there is always room for improvement in this workhorse of a software. Most good designers, who have several years of experience drafting or designing with AutoCAD, do not even use half of the tools and commands in AutoCAD for design.
There are numerous tools available in AutoCAD, and this means AutoCAD has enormous capabilities that, when utilized, one can realize very fascinating design ideas. The sure way of enabling designers utilize these capabilities is to make them aware of how various tools work. The more the tools a designer is familiar with, the higher the chances of producing better, and hence, more marketable designs.
Autodesk releases a new version of AutoCAD every year. Certainly, there are new features and enhancements that can help you to work better with AutoCAD. If you are still using AutoCAD like the first time you used it, maybe it’s time to learn the new features. Learning the new features can also help you to avoid confusion and “problems” that waste your time.
Think of a software that always updates you about new features of AutoCAD. The same software demonstrates every tool and command in AutoCAD, then goes further to offer tutorials on how you can combine the tool with others to carry out a project, and finally lets you download a .dwg file to exercise what you view in the demo, and much more.
If you get such a software, you certainly have an excellent companion in your design journey with AutoCAD.
SkyTOP’s DemosCAD is perhaps the only such available software in the world. With an interface that resembles that of AutoCAD, you can work seamlessly with both software. As you carry out your design work in AutoCAD, you can click a tool in DemosCAD to view how it works in AutoCAD, and then go back to AutoCAD to continue with your design.
Apart from the demo, you can download a .dwg file for every tool and open it in AutoCAD to exercise a similar task to what you view on the demo. There are also tutorial videos that give further details on how you can combine a tool with other tools and commands in AutoCAD to carry out a more complex design.
Furthermore, one can read written instructions in pdf format that outline the procedure to follow in using a particular tool or command.
This is surely good news, not only for new designers struggling with AutoCAD, but also for experienced designers who now have a chance to enhance their AutoCAD skills on the go. Enhancing your AutoCAD skills will place you ahead of others in the competitive job market
SkyTOP’s DemosCAD is your excellent companion in enhancing your AutoCAD skills. DemosCAD is available as a web app on www.demoscad.net. There is also a DemosCAD mobile app and a desktop application.
