AutoCAD Essentials 1: Interface and Drawing Management

AutoCAD Essentials with Jeff Bartels is a multi-part series that takes a more modular approach to this massive program, used for everything from 2D and 3D CAD design, drafting, and modeling to architectural drawing and engineering projects. This first installment includes a lengthy tour of the interface, from understanding the concept of model space to customizing the AutoCAD preferences and working with dockable palettes. The second half of the course show how to manage your drawings, including getting the most from the mouse and many shortcuts, creating time-saving templates, and plotting from either model space or in a layout.
Topics include:
* Launching AutoCAD
* Accessing the tools
* Saving a workspace
* Monitoring the status bar
* Understanding the anatomy of a command
* Opening a drawing
* Zooming, panning, and regenning
* Working in a multiple document environment
* Saving your work

Lynda.com - AutoCAD Essentials 3. Editing and Organizing Drawings

Properly managing a drawing is essential to being productive in AutoCAD. In this course, author Jeff Bartels concentrates on the Autodesk AutoCAD tools and features dedicated to organizing and editing geometry. The course covers making selections, creating and adjusting layers, identifying objects with hatch patterns, and scaling, exploding, and joining elements. It also includes lessons on creating fillets and chamfers, copying existing objects into rectangular or circular patterns, and accessing specialized tools that make measurements and calculations a lot easier.
Topics include:
* Adding and removing from selections
* Stretching elements
* Creating mirrored copies
* Leveraging grips
* Editing hatch patterns
* Using layers to organize a drawing
* Changing layer states
* Understanding the BYLAYER property
* Taking measurements
