- [Voiceover] Welcome to this workshop on Space Planning in AutoCAD. I'm Scott Onstott. I was educated as an architect and began using AutoCAD over 22 years ago. I decided early in my career to focus on education and have taught many classes and also written and edited numerous books on AutoCAD and many of the other programs technical and creative people use. In this course, you will lay out furniture in an office space by first creating blocks, and then grouping common furniture arrangements. You will have the creative freedom to decide how the sample open office plan will be arranged on your own, or follow my example and emulate the way I fill out the space with furniture groupings.
Unlike a traditional sketch, furniture blocks and groups drawn in AutoCAD are in the same real-world scale as the floor plan. This allows you to make decisions as you plan the rooms because you can immediately determine if particular arrangements make sense given the available space. Let's dive right in.
