In this AutoCAD tutorial, we’ll learn how to create an exterior architectural model using AutoCAD. We’ll use time-saving techniques to create models quickly and efficiently while focusing on the techniques used to create high-quality models. We’ll also take care that the model can be easily linked to a rendering software such as 3ds Max.

By the end of this AutoCAD training, you’ll have a working knowledge of creating quick models with high quality.
