Properly managing a drawing is essential to being productive in AutoCAD. In this course, author Jeff Bartels concentrates on the Autodesk AutoCAD tools and features dedicated to organizing and editing geometry. The course covers making selections, creating and adjusting layers, identifying objects with hatch patterns, and scaling, exploding, and joining elements. It also includes lessons on creating fillets and chamfers, copying existing objects into rectangular or circular patterns, and accessing specialized tools that make measurements and calculations a lot easier.
Well! We've reached the end of the title. Let me say it has been a pleasure working with you. At this point, you should be comfortable using AutoCAD to create and edit geometry. Likewise, you should feel confident using layers, linetypes and colors to organize your drawings. Don't stop here. Take your skills even farther by viewing the next title in the series, AutoCAD Essentials 4. In this title, we'll learn how to use AutoCAD's annotation tools to add notes to a drawing, using both single line and paragraph style text. We will also learn how to apply dimensions and callouts, to prepare our design for production.
