In Mission 1 you will use AutoCAD 2013 to produce a layout of a temple in Tikal. A 3D model of the temple is provided for you. You then create 2D base, projected, section and detail views with dimensions.
In Mission 2 you use AutoCAD 2013 to create a 3D model of mission bell at Mission Espada in Texas. Starting with nothing more than the façade, a platform and a few simple profiles, you’ll create a bell with associative surfaces that can be easily modified to meet your design needs. Materials add the finishing touch!
In Mission 3 you move north to Wyoming where you use AutoCAD Raster Design within AutoCAD 2013 to convert data from an old map to real AutoCAD geometry to use as a starting point for your model. From there, a combination of solid modeling tools, a SketchUp Import app, and associative arrays help you recreate an historic building from the Wild West.
Mission 4 takes you from the United States to Brazil where you use parametric constraints in AutoCAD 2013 to reconstruct an elevation of the Church de São Francisco. Apply geometric and dimensional constraints to AutoCAD geometry. As you discover new information about the project, easily update the design while automatically maintaining geometric relationships.
In Mission 5 your journey continues with a trip to Mexico and taste of Autodesk Showcase. Starting with an AutoCAD model of an ancient artifact from Xochicalco, you export it to Autodesk Showcase for immersive visualization. You’ll experiment with different environments, visual styles, materials, and shots.
