    I have no idea on a learning tool for AutoCad.

    If you are looking for a 2D CAD program to design panels and such, I have used CadStd many times. Very simple to learn and use. The panels I designed, I exported to .dxf format and emailed to Ken at DakenSkys for cutting.

    to be honest with you, I had to learn on my own. But really it isn't that bad. your best way to learn is to use it.

    I use Lt2005 If you need any help, ask away, if I can help you I will.

    I wholeheartedly agree with Trevor- AutoCAD is not hard to learn if you just get in and fool around with it. If you have 2007 or 2009 give me a call and I will be glad to walk you thru setting up your drawing, layers, and getting you on the right path. I use it at work often.
