AutoCAD Essentials of Customizing AutoCAD
Course Length = 1 day
CPC PDH Credits = 7
This course is designed for the intermediate-level user of AutoCAD® who requires comprehensive training on customizing AutoCAD tool palettes and the user interface, and working with Customize User Interface file types.
Customization of tool palettes can quickly increase productivity by placing the most commonly used commands and objects in a single place. Additionally, tailoring the user interface to contain the commands, menus, and palettes that are commonly used during daily drafting tasks is another important key to improving productivity.
Hands-on exercises throughout the course demonstrate the techniques that are taught. The exercises are printed in the book and are also provided in an onscreen format that can be viewed next to AutoCAD.
The primary objective of this course is to teach students powerful tools and techniques for tailoring the AutoCAD user interface, including the creation and management of custom tool palettes.
