AutoCAD is an essential skill for Interior Designers wishing to take a further step in their career.

As an Interior designer you will achieve the following by the end of this course:
  • Create your own designs, plans and elevations and present them to the client.
  • Create your own pieces of furniture.
  • It will be your only tool in communicating with contractors.
  • You will have the flexibility of making unlimited modifications to your design and furniture arrangements.
  • Calculate areas and quantities for your chosen materials.
  • Organize your presentation in the most professional way.
  • Read all kinds of architectural drawings.
  • Coordinate with suppliers through your drawings.
There will be plenty of exercises and learning through complete hands-on training.

 

Why is it essential for an interior designer to learn AutoCAD?
  • Accurate documentation of your design bringing your ideas to life
  • Flexibility making unlimited modifications
  • Easy and quick way of calculating material quantities
  • Essential collaboration with electrical and civil engineers using the same Autocad files
  • The most efficient software that can help you display in one layout:
    Plans, Sections, Pictures, Elevations and Text

AutoCAD is a computer-aided drafting software program used to create professional drawings for all Design stages.

You will learn the following:
Viewing: Pan and zoom in a drawing, and control the order of overlapping objects.
Geometry: Create basic geometric objects such as lines, circles, and hatched areas.
Precision: Ensure the precision required for your models.
Layers: Organize your drawing by assigning objects to layers.
Properties: You can assign properties such as colour and linetype to individual objects, or as default properties assigned to layers.
Modifying: Perform editing operations such as erase, move, and trim on the objects in a drawing.
Blocks: Insert symbols and details into your drawings from commercial online sources or from your own designs.
Layouts: Display one or more scaled views of your design on a standard-size drawing sheet called a layout.
Notes and Labels: Create notes, labels, bubbles, and callouts. Save and restore style settings by name.
Dimensions: Create several types of dimensions and save dimension settings by name.
Printing: Output a drawing layout to a printer, a plotter, or a file. Save and restore the printer settings for each layout.
