In this set of tutorials, we'll learn how to create isometric drawings in AutoCAD while creating a small structural detail. We'll begin with setting up our model space so that our snaps and grids work in an isometric view. From there we'll do a small exercise to help us get familiar with the grid and UCS in the isometric environment. After that, we'll begin our small project by creating the beam in our isometric view, as well as the connection plates, bolts, and a few other structural elements. Along the way, you can expect to learn how use various geometric shapes to create commonly-used elements you'd expect to find in isometric details. By the end of this course, you'll be comfortable with working in the isometric view and you should be able to work your way through any isometric drawing thrown your way. Software required: AutoCAD 2015.
