AutoCAD 2014 Essentials with Jeff Bartels is a multi-part series that takes a more modular approach to this massive program, used for everything from 2D and 3D CAD design, drafting, and modeling to architectural drawing and engineering projects. This installment kicks off the 2014 series with a complete tour of the interface, from understanding the concept of model space to customizing the AutoCAD preferences and working with dockable palettes. The second half of the course shows how to manage your drawings, including getting the most from the mouse and many shortcuts, creating time-saving templates, and plotting from either model space or in a layout.
Hi I'm Jeff Bartels. Welcome to AutoCAD essentials 1, Interface and Drawing Management. In this first title of the series we'll begin our AutoCAD journey by taking a tour of the interface. Along the way. I'll show you how the tools are organized and how to optimize large interface items, like pallets, on screen. We'll explore basic command usage and learn how to get answers to questions using AutoCAD's comprehensive Help feature. Next we'll turn our attention to file management. I'll show you how to use shortcuts to get quick access to your drawings.
We'll learn the basics of drawing navigation. And how to manage multiple open drawings at one time. Finally, we'll explore how to print drawings to a measurable scale. So they can easily be used as exhibits or for documenting the progress of a design. If you are someone who is always wanted to learn AutoCAD from the ground up. Or if you're someone who uses AutoCAD to review drawings provided by others. This title is perfect for you. When you're ready, follow me and we'll get started.
