Introduction to The Basics of AutoCAD


AutoCAD is one of the most widely used software applications for Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Bassam will introduce its very basic commands and features in 2D, in a fun and easy way!

You might think that this workshop is mostly useful for engineers, designers, architects, developers, and makers and you'd be right BUT it's also an introduction, which means that, if you've ever been curious to learn, the barriers to entry couldn't be lower than this introductory, donation-based workshop!

P.S. If there's interest in this workshop, Bassam is planning to give a series of 5AutoCAD classes that are aimed to bringing anyone interested from the beginner level- i.e. 2D AutoCAD hobbyist- to an advanced level- i.e. AutoCAD 3D Master!

Audience Skill Level

Beginner- Requires a basic understanding/idea of (or at least some curiosity towards) CAD design.

Tools Required

Please bring along your laptops, with AutoCAD 2008 or above installed. (Let us know if you don't have AutoCAD installed!)
