AutoCAD 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 first installment includes a lengthy 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 show 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.
If you purchased a DVD or are a Premium subscriber to lynda.com, you'll have access to the exercise files used in this title. They will be in a folder called Exercise Files. If you download them, place them on your desktop. In there you'll find the content divided up into directories named after the chapters where they're used. By placing the exercise files on the desktop, you'll be able to access them the same way that I do in the course.
