This class will focus on assisting CAD beginners in the use of all aspects of the Publishing Tool in AutoCAD software to plot multiple drawings in both digital and hard-copy paper formats. Attendees will learn how to publish an entire sheet set from the Sheet Set Manager, and also by using individual drawing sheet page setups. We will develop, save, and edit a listing of drawings using the Drawing Set Descriptions (DSD) file. Using this AutoCAD “Easy Button” provides an efficient and streamlined alternative to plotting drawings sheets individually. This session features AutoCAD. AIA Approved
