When it comes to AutoCAD training, Construction Processes are often left out of the conversation. Most classes focus on basic AutoCAD design/drafting tools, like measurements, lines, layers, and printing. Most of us are already comfortable with those processes and need more Construction-focused workflows. When it comes to actual construction projects, AutoCAD can do far more than you think. It can help you compare document revisions, build sheet sets to access/manage entire document sets, geo-reference and build out construction access & control plans, and even let you do quick quantity takeoffs. If you want to see how AutoCAD can do all this, plus much more, then let ZenTek Consultants show you how easy it can be.
