Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Starting a new drawing with an AutoCAD template DWT file, part of Learning AutoCAD LT 2016.
- The native file format for AutoCAD LT…is a DWG file,…or drawing file.…You can, however, create template files…which allow you to generate a file…with preset settings.…So what we're going to do now…is have a look at creating a file…from a DWT,…a drawing template file.…Now, the good thing is, when you install AutoCAD LT…you will find that there are DWT files preset for you…and they're very quick and easy to find.…
So, again, we're going to utilize the Application Menu…that we covered in previous videos.…So that's up here, top left,…big red A, click on the arrow,…and there we go there.…So we've got the New option.…So we want to create a New Drawing…using a selected template file.…So hover over New in the Application Menu, there,…hover over Drawing, and as you can see…it says Start a New Drawing…with a Selected Drawing Template file.…So if I click there like so,…I've then got the option now…to look at the default templates.…
Now these are already preset and loaded with AutoCAD LT.…Quick and easy, very easy to find,…because they go into the default template folder up here.…
