Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video What are layers?, part of Learning AutoCAD LT 2016.
- Working with layers in AutoCAD LT is fundamental.…It's a bit like milk in your coffee,…if of course you have milk in your coffee.…It's very important that you utilize layers in AutoCAD…to distinguish one object from another.…So what I've got open for you here right now is a…blank drawing, created using that default template…that we created, way back when in some of the previous…sections in this particular course.…So, let's have a look at the layers…and how the layers work in a new drawing.…
And then what we'll do is we'll start working through…the layer tools and see how they assist you…and help you create AutoCAD LT drawings effectively.…So, let's have a look at the layers.…We go to the Home tab on the Ribbon here, like so.…And you've got your Layers panel.…Now there's a lot of commands here…and you've got a flyout, as usual.…So I'll pin that open, like that.…And you can see you've got things like…Locked Layer Fading and Save Layer States.…There's lots of tools here that…you can utilize with your layers.…So I'll just thump in the flyout menu…
