AutoCAD Architecture


AutoCAD Architecture is a specialized "flavor" of AutoCAD, with tools and features designed specifically for architectural design and documentation. Architectural drafting and documentation is more efficient with the software’s intuitive environment and tools built specifically for architects.

You'll follow a workflow‐based approach that mirrors the development of projects in the real world – creating walls and other features, working with AutoCAD architectural objects, managing projects and documenting your designs.​

To get the most out of this course, we strongly recommend you review every topic within the course, and use all the learning styles to ensure you retain the important information within. We also encourage you to take all the progress tests to ensure you have retained the knowledge, and most importantly practice with the hundreds of real world, Let Me Try examples.​
