This beginners course covers all fundamentals of TurboCAD as well as 2D design methods using 2D drawing and modify tools. The objective of the TurboCAD 2D Fundamentals course is to enable trainees to get started in TurboCAD. The course starts at switching on your TurboCAD for the first time but moves on to more advanced functions like creating a drawing, putting it on a layout and printing your drawing, just to mention a few. We introduce tools in a systematic fashion throughout the course and embed and practice them using practical exercises

Refreshments and light lunch will be served
