Join Scott Onstott for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of AutoCAD: Creating Sheet Sets.
- If you are a premium member of the Lynda.com library you have access to the Exercise Files used throughout this course. These files can be found on the Exercise Files tab on the main course page. Let's open the Exercise Files folder. The way I've organized this is you have a Project Sheet Set folder which will be the container for the sheet set that you're going to build. This container happens to also have a Drawings sub-folder which has the source Drawings that you'll use to build your Sheet Set.
But as you go through the course you're gonna be creating lots of different files in here in this folder in the Project Sheet Set folder. So that you can better understand how a Sheet Set works right from the beginning I provided the completed Sheet Set folder. It's broken down into two sub-folders. A Drawings sub-folder which contains those same source files and the Town Hall Sheet Set which contains a variety of files that we'll be creating across this course.
Due to the nature of Sheet Sets it's impractical to provide you with separate sample files for each video. You're going to be building the project in this folder. And as I said, you can go back and take a look at the Completed Sheet Set and compare what you're building with the example to see that you're on the right track. If you don't have access to the Exercise Files you can follow along from scratch or with your own assets. Let's get started.
