In this class, you learn how to edit the out-of-box specs and catalogs as well as create new ones from scratch. We also cover how to create custom components in the catalogs using the preprogrammed parametric shapes and how to employ the unlimited options available when making custom components from AutoCAD software blocks. Finally, we discuss the auxiliary catalogs in which the non-spec-driven components, such as supports, are stored and we explain how to edit them.
- Locate and open existing catalogs and specs
- Create new catalogs and specs
- Create custom components
- Describe where non-spec-driven content is stored and edit the non-spec-driven content
