AutoCAD Essentials 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. In this installment, author Jeff Bartels concentrates on the particulars of creating basic geometry in AutoCAD, including assigning imperial or metric units of measurement, using object snaps to control accuracy, and drawing and transforming basic lines and shapes. The last chapter in the course tests your newfound skills in a short project.
If you purchased the DVD or are a Premium subscriber of the 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 up content divided up into directories named after the chapters where they're used. By placing the exercise files on the desktop, you will be able to access them the same way that I do in the course.
