The Learn Qcad Videos  
QCad Overview

Ever tried to learn CAD by reading books or reading CAD Help Files? Then you know how frustrating and pointless it can be. "The QCAD Training Videos" are chock full of video clips that eliminate all that wasted time reading CAD books. Not to mention that these training videos cost less than most boring CAD books.

This QCAD training course will help you to prepare for a CAD career and/or bring you up to speed for creating professional drawings using the low cost yet feature-rich QCAD. This CAD training course will have you QCAD proficient in short order. This training course can also include the Add-on DryStacked Block House Plan Drawing videos for those of you interested in this home construction method. See our house plans page for details.

Because of its amazing low price combined with a feature-rich set of drawing tools that rival many costly CAD programs, QCAD was chosen as our preferred teaching platform. It is also multi-platform OS capable and provides numerous language translations. It had only one serious limitation, and that was the lack of available training for new CAD users. "The QCAD Training Videos" comes barreling down the tracks and completely blows away those new user training issues.

Starting with QCAD doesn't mean you have to end with QCAD. This acquired knowledge base will propel you rapidly into complete understanding of high-end commercial CAD systems. Maximize you college or trade school experience by becoming CAD literate before you start that expensive training.

QCad is an application for computer aided drafting in two dimensions. With QCad you can create technical drawings such as plans for buildings, interiors or mechanical parts. QCad works under Linux, Unix Systems, Mac OS X and Windows. The source code of QCad is released under the GPL (Open Source).
