Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Pack & Go, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2015 Essential Training.
- Another tool used to share your drawings,…namely the CAD files themselves,…is Pack & Go.…We mentioned this when we talked about external references,…as Pack & Go plays an important part…in sharing your ex-referenced files.…I'm gonna go to File,…and then click Package Drawing.…Make sure that my drawing is currently saved.…And we can see that AutoCAD has gone out,…find all the available files…that are related to this particular file.…In this case, the fonts that are loaded,…the Compiled Shape files that are loaded,…the Font Map,…as well as the file itself,…and the Xref floor plan that's been Xref'd into this file.…
Here we can click Package Settings…and choose what type of Output we wanna create.…A Compressed .zip File…or a simple folder.…I can also save my files backwards…in case I have any compatibility issues.…I can choose to include the fonts,…any unloaded references,…textures of materials.…I can also have AutoCAD open this in Finder…after the packaging is done.…Here I can also add additional files…that may not be related directly to the file,…
