Views, Layers And 3d In Lt?
The features this month are some of those things that are buried more than one level deep or just don`t lend themselves to being the most obvious. For example, creating named views: Check. Naming a UCS position: Maybe. Combining the two: Seriously? Oh, yeah. Then there`s the whole Layer State thing that has now been relegated to a graphic button in AutoCAD 2005/2006, rather than the text `Save State` as in previous versions.

Lesson 3-15: Extra Projects And A Tutorial
There is only one way to get better at AutoCAD and that is to practice. In 3D, you not only need to know the commands, but also how best to use them. As you start drawing in 3D, you may start looking at everyday objects and think about how they would be drawn. Look at the sample drawing page and think about how they were done - using only the commands shown in this level.

Reference & Obscured Variables
Receiving drawings from outside (or even from others within your own company) can be a wee bit aggravating sometimes. This month covers the Reference option in the Scale and Rotate commands that might give you a bit more leverage in your productivity. You`ll also find out about a buried feature called BASE, that enables you to assign a basepoint to a drawing. And if you`ve always wondered if you can set up AutoCAD to `see` the hidden lines in another format, AutoCAD 2002 has the answer.

I also have included another real-time application involving the fundamentals of paper space, along with some insights into what I refer to as the poor manÃ¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s document management utility...
Global Twist Modeling
In this task, you`ll be introduced to Global Shape Modeling (GSM) techniques to modify surfaces while maintaining continuity constraints. This is a high level task intended for those users who have a good understanding of surfacing and would like to learn how GSM could help them.
