Creating Custom AutoCAD Color Books for Utility Markings


AutoCAD ships with several color books for things like DIC and PANTONE colors, but did you know you can define your own color books? Creating a new color book is as simple as browsing to, and building things to your liking through Autodesk’s nifty web interface. Once you’re done, just download the color book file and place it into the appropriate AutoCAD support directory. Watch the video above to see how it’s done.
