Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of AutoCAD: Using the Command Line (2016).
- So, what should you know about the Using the Command Line in AutoCAD course? One of the main things you should know is we are using AutoCAD 2016 for all of the exercises and all of the videos. So that means we're using a 2013 DWG file format, which means that the DWGs that are provided as exercises can be opened by versions of AutoCAD 2013 or later. Any previous versions of AutoCAD won't be able to open that 2013 DWG file format.
One would hope by now that you are more advanced than AutoCAD 2013 in your versions, anyway. 2013 is quite an old version of AutoCAD now. So, remember that with your DWG file formating. You can, however, if you want to save them back to a previous version, obviously go back into DWG TrueView, and save back, if you want to. Now, the other thing with AutoCAD 2016 that's going on is we're just using the standard setup of AutoCAD 2016.
There's no user customization on the ribbon, the interface, or anything else. So if I just jump up here to the Quick Access Toolbar, you can see that we're just using the default workspace, drafting, and annotation. So, we're just using the regular tools in AutoCAD 2016. There's no customization at all, so it's straight out of the box. The command line is normally situated down here, at the bottom of the screen in AutoCAD 2016. It normally is in most versions of AutoCAD. So, you'll find it down there, at the bottom of the screen, ready to use whenever you need it during this Using The Command Line in AutoCAD course.
So, what we'll do next, in the next video, is we'll talk about the exercise files, and how to use them, and the file formats, and so on, as I've mentioned previously. Let's get going now, and get you through that next video, and then we'll look at getting you using the command line in AutoCAD.
