CES322643-L - Investigate How to Use and Implement the CAD Standards Manager in the Lab

Session Description

Did you know that AutoCAD software has a CAD Standards Manager included within? You can find the CAD Standards panel on the manage tab of the ribbon. Standards within drawing files define a set of common properties for named objects such as layers and text styles. Consistency in design and drafting are very important for maintaining and sharing drawings internally and externally in AutoCAD. The CAD Standards Manager can help you check, correct, and maintain standards within your company. At the end of this class, you’ll be able to configure template files for standards, attach those standards files to a drawing to check consistency, use the batch checker to create a violation report, and understand how to use the powerful layer translator. Let’s investigate these tools together to help provide a more efficient approach to producing and checking design drawings for consistency and standards.
