Because I don't have much knowledge of Autocad, I would like to ask
people who do, a question.
Someone I know wants to start learning Autocad 3D and has made
inquiries at several schools where they give autocad training. All
schools have answered her that she will first have to do a 2D course.
Is it true that she has to understand Autocad 2D to be able to learn
Thanks for your replies,
Thanks for the answer, It's what I already thought (I have some
experience in the old 3Dstudio of autodesk) and you will probably
always have to work in 2D to build up the 3D models (or does that work
differently in Autocad 3D?).
Not exactly. The advice is given because of the relatively steep learning
curve with acad in general. There's no distinct boundary between 2d and 3d,
when working in 3d. Difficulty in visualizing things in 3d coupled with the
addition of several more commands to the usual 2d compliment make 3d harder
to do. If your 2d skills are shaky, then it's likely to be too much to
