Learn how to better communicate about your designs based on illustration on top of a DWG™-based drawing. We will use Autodesk SketchBook Designer software with AutoCAD software to understand the one-click workflows. See how this solution also scales and how you may add other image-editing applications, such as Adobe® Photoshop®.
