Practical Lessons Introduction[edit]

Practical lessons are based on commented examples.

In the end you should be able to create 3D models efficiently.

Idea is to provide instructions for the same tasks and examples for variety of available CAD programs, so that you can follow "AutoCAD trail", or PowerSHAPE, Inventor, Sketchup ... trails.

Each trail has:

  • Introduction to CAD program principles (GUI, coordinate system ...)

  • 3D modeling part

However there are free or educational versions that are usually limited either in functionality, or are available for limited time period.

As in 2007 there are available free or educational versions for:
