AutoCAD Tutorials

Free AutoCAD tutorials to learn AutoCAD online

Our website TutoCAD allows you to learn AutoCAD in the easiest and most practical way possible.
You can browse the site by clicking on the « Learn AutoCAD » menu to search for AutoCAD lessons for different levels of learning:
AutoCAD for Beginners
For advanced users
– To learn how to draw 3d plans and objects
– To learn AutoLisp or AutoCAD Lisp

Our various AutoCAD tutorials include several lessons such as: Knowing and discovering the AutoCAD interface, how to communicate with AutoCAD, using the functions and display commands like zoom or pan.
There are for example a hundred lessons to learn AutoCAD for beginners:
– Draw simple 2d shapes.
– Draw Complex 2d shapes
Draw according to the scale
– Edit and edit 2d drawings
– Annotate drawings (add text and dimensions)
– creation of drawings and reuse them in the form of blocks.
Prepare the layout and print the drawing

AutoCAD Tutorials for Beginners:

This course is designated for new AutoCAD ®/AutoCAD LT ® users who need comprehensive training on AutoCAD or AutoCAD Lt. This training includes, functions, commands and techniques for creating, editing , creating blocks, and printing drawings with AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT (versions 2000 to AutoCAD 2018).

This AutoCAD course for beginners, covers the essential AutoCAD commands to learn the basis of this cad software in addition to other functions and commands that cover more sophisticated techniques for faster productivity.
This course is for any user starting on AutoCAD or AutoCAD Lt.
This course is suitable for all disciplines including architecture, interior design, landscaping, industrial design, mechanical drawing, civil engineering, electrical drawing, etc.

AutoCAD tutorials for Advanced User

Teach students powerful tools and techniques for creating, annotating, and printing 2d drawings and thus be faster and more efficient. As well as allowing students to re-use the content already created, and extract information from their drawings (create xref, sets of sheets or “sheet sets”, blocks, attributes, insertion of images and logo in drawing, layout and printing …)
This course is designed for users of AutoCAD who need additional training to go further than the basic functions and thus improve their performance and speed of creation and modification of drawings.
This course includes functions, commands and techniques to become more productive in creating, annotating, and printing drawings in AutoCAD.

This training can be considered as a continuation of the AutoCAD basic course for beginners.

AutoCAD Tutorials learn 3D

Considered one of the best AutoCAD courses for beginners in 3d drawing. The first objective of this course AutoCAD and to teach students the basic concepts for the creation of 3d designs and to create from these 3d drawings, photo images.

Using our exercises, students will explore the basic concepts for creating 3d drawings with AutoCAD. Students will learn how to create and modify solid and surface models from standard solid primitives. This training will also show how to present 3d drawings using different display and 3d visualization commands such as “visual styles”, or adding, hardware, and lights.
This course is for AutoCAD users with a good 2d experience.

Tutorials for AutoCAD Lisp (AutoLisp)

This free complete course on AutoLisp will teach you everything you want to know to develop new commands on AutoCAD.

How AutoCAD to PDF

PDF remains the standard ‘Electronic’ file format for drawing exchange in the AEC Industries. PDF support is added to AutoCAD since 2009.

If you have worked with previous versions of AutoCAD before release 2009, then you may have added a ‘Virtual’ PDF plotter to your computer. To create a PDF you would have had to send your Plot file to this Virtual Plotter, which would create a PDF instead of a paper plot.

How to ‘Export’ PDF files from AutoCAD Drawings in two steps.

Exporting PDF files from an AutoCAD drawing is a simple two steps :

  1. Click the export button
  2. Type in a file name (optional!) and hit the ‘Save’ button.

autocad to pdf

It’s as easy as that!

How to Export PDF files from AutoCAD drawings – in a little more detail!

The Export to PDF command can easily be found on the ‘Export to DWF/PDF’ panel of the ‘Output’ tab.

If you are not using the Ribbon, you can export from the command line by typing ‘EXPORTPDF’.

This will open the ‘Save as PDF’ dialogue, where you chose where to save your PDF, and what you want to call it. Click ‘Save’ and you are done!

Fine tuning the Export to PDF process

If the two step process is to simple for you – there are a few more options you can use to tailor this process to your needs.

The Export dropdown allows you to choose whether to Export the current Layout or all layouts in the file.

If you are in Model space, you will also have the option to choose ’Display’, ‘Extents’ or ‘Window’ plot.

The Page setup dropdown allows you to use the current plot settings, or override them.

If you chose ‘Override’ the PDF Page setup Override dialogue pops up, which contains a simplified subset of the usual Plotting options.
