This guide was developed to give you the basic commands needed to create 2D drawings using AutoCAD.

Review each step through the Hitchhiker’s Guide.  Be prepared to answer questions at the end of each section.  You will not be able to move on to the next section without passing with a score of 100%.


Be sure to take notes on each section and record them in your notebooks.  (Remember, only hand written notes will be allowed for certain quizzes and in-class assessments.)


The image to the left shows the commands that are grouped together according to types of activity, and are arranged to follow a general workflow to increase productivity.
