    When it comes to CAD, "plotting" refers to everything around printing and page setup, while "publishing" refers to electronic output. These techniques are intertwined in AutoCAD software. The goal of both is to clearly communicate design intent to the contractors, architects, and engineers involved in the project. Watch this course to learn how to plot and publish your own drawings effectively, using the appropriate tools and settings within AutoCAD 2016 software. We will cover scaling views, customizing page setups for layouts, and assigning plot styles to change the appearance of your drawings when they go to plot or publish. You will learn how to adjust individual settings in the Plot and Publish dialogs so you end up with smart, readable printouts, DWFs, and PDFs. This session features AutoCAD, AutoCAD LT, and AutoCAD for Mac. AIA Approved
