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.
Power Edits, Points & Palettes
Last month I covered some fun editing features and I found a couple other ones that I wanted to pass along. As I was reviewing the last 22 months of tips (yes, I am coming up on the two year anniversary of writing this column for this terrific website), I discovered that I needed to pass along the updated features of Palettes in AutoCAD 2005. Now that may take a couple issues. In the meantime, carry on and pass along your questions and insights anytime.
Acad 2005 New Features, Lesson 2: Sheet Set Wizard
Here we learn all the latest AutoCAD features. This is a must for all AutoCAD users looking to stay tuned in. (Video Tutorial).
Lesson 4-: Autocad`s Inquiry Tools
AutoCAD has many tools to help you as a designer. Some of these you may have already used. The properties command gives you a lot of information about an object you have selected and allows you change most of them. AutoCAD also has some commands used specifically for pulling information from objects.
Lesson 4-10: Introduction To Sheet Sets
Sheet sets are the digital version of the rolled up groups of drawings shoved in the back corner behind you. Actually they are the next logical progression from Pack `n` Go. This time though, you are just sending the layouts and not your actual CAD file. There are a lot of variables involved when you use these, but you will give you an idea of what`s involved. Sheet sets can be published as DWF`s or opened up in ACAD 2005 (.dst extension).
Autocad 2005 Level One Lesson 1: Introduction And Concept
These in depth lessons include the experience of 1000`s of hours of instruction and AutoCAD drafting. More importantly, the presentation is conveyed in a progressive logical manor not found in any other training. (Video Tutorial)
Autocad 2005: Tables
Creating tables in AutoCAD 2005 is nothing but fun. The new TABLE command enables you to draw tables and part-lists as easy as a click. However you need to define the table settings with the TABLESTYLE command first. The following tutorial demonstrates how to define table styles and how to insert tables.
Lesson 3-6: Line Thickness
In this lesson you`ll create the same chair by drawing lines and then giving them thickness. Think of thickness as the height of the line or how tall it is. This is different from the width of the line that you learned in the polyline lesson. This is a quick, simple way of achieving some degree of 3-D feel. Once again, remember that in some instances, simple may do the job. This is also a good technique for AutoCAD LT users, who don`t have the option to draw in true 3-D.
Lesson 4-2: Object Snaps - Osnaps
Object snaps (Osnaps) are one of the handiest tools in AutoCAD. Without them, you would have a lot of trouble doing even the simplest dimension accurately. Before discussing how they are used, first think about what they are. Their name, "object snaps" means that they snap to objects, or more precisely, they snap to specific parts of an object. A line for example has 3 points that you can snap to: a midpoint and two endpoints.

Lesson 3-13: Mapping Materials
Whenever you are attaching materials to an object in AutoCAD, you are effectively Ã¢â‚¬Ëœstretching` the image of the material around the object. For many objects, this can be acceptable. For a lot of others, though, you may want to adjust how the material is displayed on the object. This process is called mapping.
Lesson 4-4: Autocad File Types
Every file in a computer is created as a particular type or format. For example, a Corel WordPerfect letter file is created as a WPD file. A standard AutoCAD drawing is created as a DWG file. The difference is the way that the application program reads and writes the file.

Customization Corner: Customizing Toolbars
Just like pull-downs, toolbars are commonly found in most Windows based applications. They provide for a quick way to access commands, while being compact in size to help reduce screen real estate problems. From past experience in training individuals on AutoCAD, new users are able to pick up on the concept of toolbars much faster than they can pull-down menus. It seems that most people recognize and relate to a picture faster than one can read...***Free Registration Required***
