Hello, and welcome to VTC's AutoCAD 2004 for Architects training tutorial. My name is Ivanhoe Tejeda and I will be your guide as we learn to draw in this environment. This tutorial is intended for beginners, who are interested in learning how to use AutoCAD as it applies to the discipline of architecture. I have opened a sample drawing provided with the AutoCAD software, and it is a good example of the type of drawing you will be able to create, upon completion of this training tutorial. To AutoCAD, these are simply lines, circles, arcs and text. But to us they represent architectural drawings similar to those done by hand. Before we begin, I would like to point out that I am running AutoCAD 2004 and Windows 2000 Professional. And I currently have my screen area set to 800x600 pixels for the purpose of this tutorial. I highly recommend you set your screen area to a bigger pixel size. And I would like to show you how to do that. I am going to minimize AutoCAD. At my desktop screen, I am going to right click, select properties. In the display properties window, I am going to go to the settings tab. And in the settings, you will see screen area. I currently have it set to 800x600. And all you have to do is click and drag your cursor to the right to increase the resolution of your screen. 1024x768 is typical. You can go a little bit higher if your graphics card allows you to, otherwise leaving it at this setting will work very well for most users. I will leave mine 800x600, and go back to the AutoCAD program. AutoCAD is the most popular drawing tool for the architectural community. It continues to improve with each version, and 2004 is no exception. Throughout the tutorial, I am going to show you some sample drawings that you can practice with, and they are intended to provide you with examples of the draw commands and of the modify commands, as well as the other commands that we will be covering. With your practice and with your attention to the program, you will develop your own style of drawing. And in the end, you will be able to create not just plans as I have shown you here, but elevations, sections and details.
