Posted July 16, 2012 by Colin in Autodesk

This demonstration will teach you the basic 3D work of AutoCAD 2013 you will see creating 3D solid models. You learn to create 3D solid drawings from simple 2D drawings and plans or any elevation. As usual you have to set your unit system before you start. After creating a simple 2D drawing or loading it in your AutoCAD if you already saved it, next thing you will go through drafting annotation to 3D model.

Here the next session starts from now you will begin to create 3D models from 2D drawing, so the first thing you will learn is converting your workspace to 3D Modeling from Drafting. Once you convert your workspace to 3D Modeling you will be noticed that your entire ribbin will be changed into 3D elements, you learn how to make your objects into 3D shapes by using 3D commands such as hatches, boundary and the Extrude command for rising up your objects.
