In this tutorial, Josh Modglin walks through the use of template drawing files that have been configured with a company or client’s standard layers, text styles, dimension styles, table styles, and multileader styles, along with plot styles and page setups. The instructor discusses not only some of the standard variables set within a dialog but best practice to get the most of the templated configuration.
- [Instructor] In this portion, or chapter,…we're going to focus in on drawing templates.…Drawing template files really are just drawing files,…AutoCAD drawing files that we,…as the CAD manager,…have configured with the company or client's standards.…Such standards that would be stored in the template file…would include layers, text, dimension styles,…or really all our styles,…text styles, dimension styles, table styles,…multileader styles,…along with other additional items.…
Maybe some blocks and other configurations and settings.…Within this, we need to have the users understand…what we've set up as well.…Having the file completely standardized,…the users can walk right in,…and begin production…without having to set anything up at all.…
