    Default AutoCAD architecture help

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Good day. I have been learning AUTOCAD architecture (architectural desktop) for almost a year now. But am getting frustrated day by day. I subscribed for Paul Aubin tutorials on Lynda. But his tutorial is on how to use AutoCAD architecture for producing construction document. Please, I need someone to put me through on how to work On my elevations Using body modifiers and so on. I really need to learn this software as there is no training centres for AutoCAD architecture in my country. Please help me out. Looking forward to your reply

    The industry has shifted to Revit Architecture so you will not find substantial tutorials, training or online learning centers for AutoCAD Architecture. The Revit platform would be the program I would suggest shifting to, lest your efforts in AutoCAD being in vain at this point.

    If you do want to continue down the AutoCAD Architecture road, then I would suggest finding an online message board of members who still actively use it. I would try the Autodesk forums first, and go from there. You will find help in users, not in content at this point in the AutoCAD Architecture life cycle.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you. I have used revit architecture before but I prefer AutoCAD architecture to it. That is why I want to learn it. Moreso, I will be doing more of construction works, and AUTOCAD architecture is what works best for me

    Understandable. I would then seek out an active community. The one here is not active at all (as you can tell) so maybe jump board to board until you find a place that has members willing to assist.

    Thank you. Though am an active member of autodesk autocad architecture forum. I have posted there over time but the part I seem not to understand in AutoCAD architecture has not been adequately tackled. I was thinking that this forum might help.

    That's unfortunate to hear. All I can say is keep trying. Have you tried searching for YouTube videos? What about purchasing an after-market book? ASCENT has training materials available for your program for however the description reads as follows..."AutoCAD Architecture 2014 Fundamentals (Imperial)".

    Here's the link.

    OK. Good luck. Seems your task will not be made any easier if you have already explored the most common resources and come up empty handed.
