Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of AutoCAD 2018 New Features.
- [Instructor] With all the courses that you do, there are exercise files available to you. So how do you use the exercise files associated with your AutoCAD 2018 New Features course? Well, you log in to your subscription, and you download those exercise files. And they're all numbered and named accordingly. And as you work through the videos, it will tell you which exercise file to use. So, for example, if you look at the top of the AutoCAD screen, you can see that we've got 0_Introduction.dwg.
That's the particular exercise file that I'm using for this particular video. As we work through the videos in this course, you will find that I will name a particular exercise file that you need to use to follow along with the video. That will be downloaded from the website, and then you can obviously install that locally on your machine in a location that you know. And then, what you can do is, as you work through the course, you can obviously do a save and save what you've done so far so that as you work through the videos, it's incremental. So you'll make some changes in the first video, save, move into the next video, and so on.
So that's how you use the exercise files for this particular course. Just download them, and I will tell you which exercise file to use in which video, as we work through our AutoCAD 2018 New Features course.
