Any one with little knowledge of AutoCAD can take this course, this is made as a supplemental material for practicing skills learnt in my AutoCAD 2016 complete course of Udemy. 

About this course:

In this course you will learn methods of making actual 2D and 3D engineering drawings along with some representation drawings. 

The course is divided into four sections with each section dedicated to a specific type of drawings. The first section has 2D drawings, sections has 3D drawings, third section has advance 3D drawings like making a gear or a Slotted nut etc. 

The last section has a project in which I have taught method of making a coke bottle from scratch. The lessons include 2D sketching, 3D conversion adn rendering of the bottle.

At the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Apply skills learnt in AutoCAD to real world scenario.
  • Draw 2D and 3D complex drawings

All the lesson files containing PDF and DWG of drawings with dimensions are included with the respective lesson.

Robots use mechanisms to perform a rich variety of tasks and while building a robot in high school can be a lot of fun and a great learning experience, this alone will not prepare you for the introductory class in Mechanical Engineering at the University level.  To move to the next level students need to understand mechanism, 3D CAD and motion.  This is the foundation of Robotics design and countless other areas concerning machine design.  Understanding mechanisms and how they work is a critical part of Mechanical Engineering and Design. This class takes a look at various types of mechanism used to build machines and robots.

Advance AutoCAD Training

The most detailed course on AutoCAD

Created by Amardeep Singh - Product Designer and Trainer


Students: 2409, Price: Free

In this course you are going to learn AutoCAD from the very basic level to an advance level. First we are going to teach you 2D where you will learn how to draw objects in 2D. How to make use of layers and blocks? How to annotate them?

Then we will learn how to draw in isometric.

To make sure that you have good hold on commands, we will give you simple drawings and once you have enough practice, we would provide drawings related to mechanical, civil and electrical domains.(If you are from other domain, do check with us before joining).

After our 2D is over, we will switch to 3D. We will learn solid modeling, surface modeling and mesh modeling. We will also learn ho wot apply materials , lights and do rendering.

Final we will cover the most important topic i.e plotting. How to print with correct drawing and annotation scale.

Many students find it difficult when they are asked to work on older versions during their tool test / interview so we are teaching it on 2015  But to make sure that you are aware of latest version, we would be  conducting lectures showing the difference between 2015 and 2019 version.

Also we are teaching it from Windows point of view. If you are MAC user, then do the free videos to get idea whether this course would be useful to you or not.

this type of a small technical drawings will help you get through the basic steps in drawing any draft that came across your mind and way.

Beside modules and lessons in this course you will need to work on the software by certain amount of time and hours to get better by time pass by.

As instructor

I support my students when they ask any questions and totally I understand THEIR needs and their comments to improve the product i deliver and get in touch with my clients very fast so i dedicate my own time from 2 to 3 hours per day for any comment.

so, I'm open to any discussions and argues to put up with any miscommunications or misunderstanding in any part of the module.
