DraftSight is a feature-rich CAD tool for every type of design. This course will take you through the basics of DraftSight, from managing drawings with the 3DEXPERIENCE to using core tools that can complete any design and publish to a hard copy of PDF. Learn how to create and modify designs, clarify with dimensions, and use blocks to simplify the drawing content. If you want to learn about how to use DraftSight to do 3D modeling and work with Constraints try the DraftSight 3D Modeling and 2D Constraints Fundamentals and Basic Concepts learning path. After completing the learning path, put your knowledge to the test and showcase your experience by taking the DraftSight Associate Certification.
