In this video, Shaun Bryant shows you how to compare drawings and view the results using the DWG Compare command.
- [Instructor] One of the great features of AutoCAD … is the DWG Compare command. … It allows you to compare two drawings to each other … and see which details are different in each drawing. … Great, if you're comparing, let's say, a third-party drawing … to one of your existing drawings. … So we've got two drawings available to you in the library. … We have OBJECTS1, … which shows a red rectangle and a yellow circle. … OBJECTS2 shows the red rectangle and the yellow circle … plus a new blue rectangle and a green circle. … And it's that simple. … We're going to compare these two drawings. … So we go to the Collaborate tab on the ribbon, … and we select DWG Compare. … Now as soon as we do that, it will take us to a dialog box … to pick a drawing we want to compare to. … You have to think about this for a moment. … Currently, our current active drawing tab is OBJECTS2, … so we want to compare that to OBJECTS1. … When I select Open, like so, … you'll see now that we've got the comparison. …
