In this course you will draw a cottage floor plan using the dimensions given in a pencil sketch that was scanned as an image. You will use a variety of editing tools and solve problems as you encounter them in this real-world project.
Creating an Architectural Drawing
To begin the project you will underlay a sketch as an image in AutoCAD. You will select the most appropriate units and scale the image to its real-world size as given in the sketch's dimensions. You will also create a few layers according to the objects in the sketch.
In this lesson you will observe as I draw part of the cottage floor plan at a normal drawing speed. You will see how I select tools to solve specific geometric problems and gain some experience emulating my drawing strategies.
In this video you will watch me improvise as a missing dimension forces me to draw the plan from a new direction. You will continue to gain valuable insights into the drawing process, seeing how it is a fluid process that can proceed in many different ways.
