CAD Learning : Personalized Training for All Things Autodesk

With over 40,000 video tutorials and 240+ self-paced training courses covering more than 40 Autodesk software applications, the CADLearning video library is the largest collection of learning content for Autodesk software in the world. Videos are short and to the point, usually ranging from 2-5 minutes. This format of concise explanation and demonstration is specially designed to help Autodesk software users find the answers to their questions quickly and get designing faster.

CADLearning tools include supplemental content to support video lessons and improve retention. Exercise files let users follow along with the videos in their own software, creating a more hands-on learning experience, while assessments and quizzes work to identify a user’s skills and knowledge gaps and provide the tools needed to bridge those gaps. With content that aligns directly to the Autodesk exam objectives, CADLearning exam preparation helps users on their path toward earning Autodesk Certification. Whether you learn best by seeing, hearing, reading, or doing, each CADLearning asset works together to optimize your Autodesk learning experience.

CADLearning User Overview

Download a FREE AutoDesk 3 Year License For Educational Purposes

Access the 'Free Educational Software' page via this page:

Choose the product you're interested in by clicking on the correct box. (AutoCAD, Revit, Maya, 3ds Max, Inventor & Fusion are currently supported)

Then follow these outline steps:

  • Create an AutoDesk 'Student' account, using your DOB, email & a password.
    • You MUST create this account from the educational link shown above. If you use their standard free trial page, then that email address will become associated with a commercial free-trial, and you won't be able to use it for a student license. You will then have to use a different email address.
  • Confirm your email address (They send an email to click)
  • When you click the link, you get asked for the educational organisation, enter ''.
    • NOTE: You will sometimes have to click the 'ADD IT TO OUR RECORDS’ button for, as most UK & online learning providers aren't in their standard educational list. Use Birmingham as our location. After this, it will take you back to the previous page and you will be able to click through to finalise the registration.
  • It also asks for the enrolment and graduation dates; use the current month/year as enrolment, and 3 years time (the maximum free license term) for graduation.
  • Their whole student license registration process is a little clunky - and completely out of our control, so take your time and follow the instructions patiently. They don't make it particularly easy, but you're getting free access (for learning purposes) to a very expensive piece of software for 3 years, so it's worth the effort!
  • You will then get a download link for the software (Windows 32/64bit), with a license for up to 2 personal installs for educational use ONLY.
  • When you click to install, it asks you to accept the Ts & Cs and then prompts you to save a small web-installer program (it provides instructions), which you then run to install it.
  • You'll also get an AutoDesk official email of license details; which you'll need to register the software.

"With offices located in different parts of the world, we needed a way to provide continuous training, documentation and tutorials for anyone who needed them, anytime, anywhere."
- Vincent Poon, CAD/BIM Manager, Kohn Pederson Fox Architects.

CADLearning is advantageous for all skill levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced alike. You pay only for what you need. You get what you pay for as many times as you need it, whenever you need it."
- John H. Backensto, SFC, US Army (ret).

We needed a way to vary the learning experience and make it available anytime, anywhere. We use our CADLearning site in the classroom as a different way of presenting to our students. Then we take it to the next level, allowing students to log on and continue learning - anywhere in the world and whenever they need it (Network Version). "
- J.C. Malitzke, Dept. Chair, Computer Integrated Technologies, Moraine Valley Community College

"I would just like to say Thank You for offering such an informative and easy to use training solution. As a project manager with no formal training in Autodesk Architectural Desktop, I have found your training videos to be just what I needed to understand the various tools included in the program. The step by step techniques shown in your videos is just what I needed to start being productive with the software. Actually, your training program showed me things that I did't even realise the program was capable of. With the help of your training video, I'm able to see a return on my investment in the software. I have your product installed on my laptop so that it goes where I go. It is quick and easy to reference your training video sections as I'm working on a project. I'm currently budgeting more copies of your training solutions so that each of our operators have it available on their workstations. Thanks again for a great product."
