A common workflow issue is managing drawings with CAD Standards issues - blocks on the wrong layer, text with the wrong style or size, etc. I could go on and on about all the issues we face with standards in our AutoCAD files. But taking the time to fix these issues can be a daunting process. In this lab, I will walk you through several tools that AutoCAD offers to speed up this process! You will also learn techniques to make your drawings open faster, have smaller file sizes, and reduce crashing. This is a crucial part of your day to day workflow!
- Review the basics – object selection cycling, select similar, draw order
- Learn more complex tools – quick select, filter
- Build on your knowledge – layer translator, scripts
- Fix problems – audit, -purge, recover, wblock, and more
