Autodesk AutoCAD 2020 Level 2: Intermediate

SS Course: 9000334

Course Overview


Autodesk AutoCAD 2019 Level 2: Intermediate is designed for those using AutoCAD 2019 with a Windows operating system. This learning course is not designed for the AutoCAD for Mac software. 

This course continues on from the topics covered in the AutoCAD 2019: Essentials guide. It covers more sophisticated techniques that extend your mastery of the software. For example, here you go beyond the basic skill of using a template to understand the process of setting up a template, creating annotation styles, and how to work with external references.
