This session introduces the basics of 3D modeling using AutoCAD. It covers primitives (basic shapes) which can be used as the basis for other more complex shapes, or on their own and creating 3D scenes from 2D profiles. It then moves to show you creating composite solids which are objects that are produced by combining two or more individual objects. It also covers some of the techniques for working in 3D and also how you can create a 3D model from some of your existing 2D cross-sections.
