Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2015 Essential Training.
- Once you download the exercise files, place them on your desktop as I have here for easy reference. You'll find it contains folders with corresponding names to each chapter in the course if that chapter uses an exercise file. If there is no exercise file for a particular movie, you can use any template to start with. You'll find the file to be used in each movie is displayed in the beginning of the movie. If you do not have the exercise files handy, you can follow along with your own files.
