AS122151-L - AutoCAD Customization Boot Camp—Basic (No Experience Required)

Session Description

You can extend AutoCAD software in a number of ways, but many users are unsure of where or how to get started. In this lab, you'll create custom desktop icons, modify the ribbon and Quick Access toolbar, create and modify command aliases that you can use to start commands, and define tools and tool palettes to reduce repetitive drawing tasks. This lab will give you a solid foundation in some of the available customization features that AutoCAD offers to increase your productivity upon your return to the office. This session will feature AutoCAD software and AutoCAD LT software.
