This AutoCAD training during this AutoCAD 3D Drawing and Modeling course introduces students who are proficient with the 2D commands in the AutoCAD® software to the concepts and methods of 3D modeling. The training guide provides a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of 3D and explores the main features of the advanced 3D Modeling workspace in the AutoCAD software.

PROCAD also conducts Revit , SketchUp, MicroStation and Navisworks courses in Perth.
