CAD Manager's Guide: Using Tool Palettes to Manage Standards and Configuration
Collapse Expand


Ever wonder if there's an easier way to ensure that all drawing production staff members have equal access to the company's CAD standards? This class will be an overview of a variety of configuration, productivity, and management solutions that you can deploy using AutoCAD software's Tool Palettes. Tool Palettes should not be limited to sourcing warehoused block/symbol libraries; they can also facilitate company-specific CAD software configurations, along with a multitude of other tools, to assist CAD managers with the elimination of inconsistencies across workstations, projects, and even offices. Tool Palettes can easily become the "one-stop shop" for sourcing preconfigured, controlled content, and the mechanism to configure AutoCAD-based software for the required environment. There will be additional discussions on quick access for discipline- and project-specific toolsets, including troubleshooting/support tools, through the use of "live" tool palettes.

Key Learnings

  • Learn how to become more productive and efficient in managing your company’s CAD standards package
  • Eliminate inconsistencies across workstation configurations
  • Learn how to create company-wide tool-palette sets that are automatically updated when content is added or modified
  • Learn best practices for discipline- and project-specific tool palettes, including troubleshooting, support, tips, and tricks
