I finished my first AutoCAD drawing yesterday at school so I thought I'd share it here to get everyone's opinion.

I know its not perfect but that's what practice is for! lol



Sorry its kinda bad quality. I think it did that when I uploaded it to PhotoBucket

That's pretty awesome. :)
100x better than anything I could ever draw on the computer. ;)

With my limited knowledge of AutoCAD, I know it's not Photoshop. With Photoshop, people make things look pretty.

With AutoCAD, it's trying to craft a finely-tuned schematic. And with that in mind, I think your drawing is very good.

I would LOVE to see an original. Like a concept car. :)

Thats right. People that use AutoCAD make things up. Cars, houses, and other buildings are made with AutoCAD. My mom works for an engineering company and their engineers design water treatment plants, and they use AutoCAD to design them.

I think we make our own house in 2nd semester so I'm sure you will see one sometime this year lol. I will try to make my own concept car in my spare time because I would love to be able to say that I 100% designed something like that.

Wish I could see this. I took an AutoCAD class in HS, it was fun.

I was always done first, because I learned all the shortcuts with the keyboard. I hated drawing with the mouse - :p
