    Put an end to the laborious, repetitive coloring of plans using image editing software and create presentation drawings with DWG™ files that continue to be useful in design documentation. Autodesk Impression software enables you to create beautiful presentation drawings that can emulate pencil, pen, watercolor, or many other types of media. This class will provide step-by-step instructions to create an AutoCAD® Architecture template that makes use of AEC objects and layers (though many of the concepts will apply to AutoCAD as well); create an Impression style template that automates the application of styles; and finally, apply the process to quickly incorporate design changes and update the presentation drawing. This workflow will enable you to quickly creating presentation drawings that look consistently beautiful and that rapidly adapt to change.
