Get started with nanoCAD

Product feature:

A series of guided lessons on using nanoCAD. If you are new to computer-aided design, then these lessons will help you become an expert at the practical use of nanoCAD.

Simple 3D Modelin in nanoCAD Pro - Lesson 33

nanoCAD Pro provides several ways to construct 3D model. In this video you learn about drawing 3D primitives, like a box. You also learn how to turn 2D drawings into 3D models, such as a rectangle into a box and (with the Extrude command) into a pipe shape (with the Revolve command). You see how to edit this 3D models using grips, and learn the names of the parts of a 3D model.

Introducing 3D Modeling with nanoCAD Pro - Lesson 32

nanoCAD Pro is excellent at 3D modeling. In this video, you learn some introductory concepts to 3D modeling, such a how to use dynamic UCS to draw on 3D faces, changing the 3D viewpoint quickly, and adjusting shading modes so that the model looks better.

Advanced Dimensioning Methods in nanoCAD - Lesson 31

nanoCAD has the flexibility to show several kinds of advanced dimensions. In this video, you learn how to have both Imperial and metric distances on dimensions, as well as how to show four kinds of tolerances on dimensions.

Working with Dimensions Styles - Lesson 30

nanoCAD lets change the look of dimensions through the use of styles. Apply a different style, and the dimension looks different instantly. In this video, you learn how to make a new dimension style, and then apply it to existing dimensions. As well, you learn how to change the look of a dimension on-the-fly with the mDim command's Properties option.

Editing Dimensions in nanoCAD - Lesson 29

Once dimensions are placed in drawings, they can be edited. nanoCAD lets you change their position and their look. In this video, you learn how to use grips to change the position of dimensions, and the Properties panel to change their look. In addition, you learn how to break dimension lines to make drawings look cleaner and how to flip the arrowheads on dimensions.

Semiautomatic Dimensioning With the mDim Command - Lesson 28

Although nanoCAD produces perfectly accurate drawings, it can be useful to place dimensions to get a feel for the overall size of objects. In this video, you learn how to use the mDim command to place a variety of dimensions on straight, angles, and curved entities -- semi-automatically, because nanoCAD senses the entity type to determine the correct dimension to place.
