Hi everyone, my name is Jaiprkash and welcome to my course "AutoCAD 2017 essentials rendering interior and exterior scene". I am a senior CAD analyst in an engineering design consulting company and in this course we are going to learn about rendering interior and exterior scenes in AutoCAD 2017.

We will learn about new rendering enhancements in the AutoCAD 2016 and 17 version, we will also cover all the fundamental topics of rendering like:

  • Light and exposure settings
  • Creating and modifying materials
  • Applying different rendering presets
  • Creating cameras and views
  • Using geolocation and backgrounds
  • Using Autodesk 360 for rendering and a lot more
By the end of this course, you will have good knowledge of creating a photorealistic rendering of interior and exterior scenes in AutoCAD along with a good knowledge of AutoCAD rendering tools and presets.

Before beginning this course you should be familiar with basic AutoCAD software interface, the course requires AutoCAD 2016 or any latest version so if you are using any previous version of AutoCAD then you may find some changes in the interface, tools and settings.

I hope you will join me on this journey to creating photorealistic renderings in AutoCAD, at pluralsight.
