Introduction to CAD: The Basics
Reviewed by Sheriff Ahmed on 7/27/2017
Duro prepares you for an entry-level career in the engineering field by teaching marketable skill sets. I came into Duro with no knowledge of 3D modeling or what CAD was. Three weeks later I have cars, spaceships, wrenches and a video game controller to add to my portfolio. It's not only fun, Duro also helps build your online presence with suggestions on improving your LinkedIn profile.
