This browser based (HTML) and video training guide teaches common 2D CAD skills through easy to use, step-by-step sessions. Newly updated for TurboCAD 2019, it’s designed for anyone wishing to learn TurboCAD in a self-paced, structured session format, but is also appropriate for students learning CAD for the first time in a classroom setting, whether at school, college, university or any educational institution.
The Easiest Way to Learn 2D Computer-Aided Design with TurboCAD
All key 2D features in TurboCAD are presented in this learning system. Following basic introductory sessions are 14 learning sessions that introduce the following activities:
Session 1 – the graphic editor, toolbars and palettes, the Design Director, select tool, entity layers, and brush pattern fill
Session 2 – starting a new drawing, grid display features, drawing tools and duplication methods
Session 3 – line and circle geometry, the edit node tool, the fillet modification tool, and using the selector shell’s stretch handles
Session 4 – the intersection snap mode, tangent lines, parallel lines, and orthogonal & radial dimensioning
Session 5 – chamfer, parallel lines, entity dimensioning, model and paper space layout, viewport scale, and viewport borders
Session 6 – shrink/extend line, parallel construction, object trim and radius dimensions
Session 7 – circle tangent to entities, chamfer with distances of zero, and angular dimensions
Session 8 – quadrant snap mode, using points as center marks, radial copy, open window mode and viewport scale
Session 9 – mirror, line tangent from arc, split, and extended ortho snap mode features
Session 10 – edit reference point, multilines, groups and blocks, rotated ellipse, polyline, polyline arc, and 2D intersect
Session 11 – center of extents snap mode, polygon, stretch, offset, inserting a block, and using the pick point hatch method
Session 12 – region, inserting a symbol from a library, using the edit content feature to modify a block, and floating model space
Session 13 – relocate the origin and instructs on the wall tool, wall split, and convert to wall features
Session 14 – introduces many new features and touches on 3D design in TurboCAD
