Working with 3D data with Autocad

Autocad 3D Mashup

The workshop will introduce students in Humanities and Social Science to 3D modelling with AutoCAD. The workshop is specifically designed for those who have never had any previous experience with the software’s 3D toolkit but have a certain level of familiarity with the 2D version. If you want to familiarise yourself with Autocad you can attend the digital drawing with Autocad Course. This training will be delivered through a single tutorial. We will explore the main modelling tools and how to go about setting up textures, styles and lights. After a brief theoretical introduction, the training will be based on a practical exercise related to the field of Humanities. The expected goal is instructing trainees on how to be able to create, print and export basic (although highly effective) 3D renderings for their research. 

This is an intermediate level course. Intermediate sessions explore specific aspects of the method (libraries, tools etc.) and offer a more in-depth understanding of the course topics, without introducing the basics. Some previous knowledge of AutoCAD is required to be able to follow the content. 

Those who have registered to take part will receive an email with full details and a link to join the session in advance of the start time. 

After taking part in this event, you may decide that you need some further help in applying what you have learnt to your research. If so, you can book a Data Surgery meeting with one of our training fellows.
