Free autocad architecture tutorial

With a trial version the tutorials should be included very good tutorials by Autodesk. They can be found via the help menu or you maybe invited to do them the first time you open AutoCAD. They can also be found here on the internet: In addition (if you don't like the Autodesk ones ) there are many tutorials online. Check out this link for a range of them or just gooogle cad tutorials :

Remember drawing in a computer in scale-less ie in generic units. You can choose to imagine that a unit is one meter, millimetre or foot - whichever is most appropriate for you- and start drawing elements in their real world dimensions. Drawing takes place in an infinite Cartesian space (X and Y coordinates) so although there is an origin which useful for referring drawings to each other, just start drawing wherever you want as in AutoCAD this does not affect the performance of the program.

  1. Drawing elements such as LINES, CIRCLES forms the basis of a drawing. Select the command, point where you want to start and where to finish.
  2. You can then MOVE and COPY them in a myriad of ways by using buttons on the toolbar. OFFSET (copy parallel) is a very useful command for architecture.
  3. TEXT are also an essential to make your good drawing contain useful information. Importantly you can use the tools in the dimension menu to save a lot of time.
  4. These elements are typically drawn on or placed into LAYERS which like layers of tracing paper allow you to structure the information you have drawn. eg. walls, text, windows.
  5. Using color and different styles of line helps visual communication. This can be by element or as is more common BYLAYER make it easier to manage many lines together.
  6. You can further organise the lines into groups called BLOCKS which can be inserted repeatedly to increase efficiency.
  7. Cleanly joining elements together makes for legible and easily editable drawings. For this you can automatically SNAP onto parts of other elements such as the endpoint, intersection or center. AutoCAD has many other such drawing aids.
  8. Finally Printing or Plotting is achieved by marking the area desired, assigning typically a width of line to a color of layer and setting the ratio between the units and the printed millimeters of the output (ie. the scale).
All these can become complicated themes as each in evolution of AutoCAd more features are added to 'assist' the user. However for the moment that's all you should need
