In this set of tutorials, we'll take an in-depth look at working with materials in AutoCAD. We'll begin by breaking down the tools and tasks you have access to in your Materials Browser. We'll learn how to search for and assign materials that are included in your AutoDesk Library. We'll even take it one step further and learn a couple ways to create your own materials as well as how to start your own Library. From there, we'll learn how to edit the materials using settings like reflectivity and cutouts to name a few. Next we'll look at textures where we'll learn how to edit and scale existing textures as well as import images to create our own. By the end of this training you'll have in depth knowledge of how to use and manipulate materials so that you can bring your concepts to life using AutoCAD. Software required: AutoCAD.
