Modules Available 11-20

Module 11
(Course Code: M11) (Order Now!) View larger table image

In this module we are going to learn about the WBLOCK > BLOCK (creating a WBLOCK from a BLOCK) option. We will then convert it to 3D. Then we will INSERT and redefine the original; FENCE selection method; RENAME; AREA; DISTance; ARRAY > RECTANGULAR commands.

23 Steps.

Module 12
(Course Code: M12) (Order Now!)

In this module we are going to learn how to write and execute a Script file (a basic macro program for AutoCAD); how the BHatch or Hatch commands can be used instead of 3DFace in LT; and HatchEdit. Also how to split the model view in sections for 3D model visualisation purposes (VPorts).

19 Steps.

Module 13
(Course Code: M13) (Order Now!) View AutoCAD LT 3D image

In this module we are going to explore some more 3D techniques. As this module is designed with LT users in mind we will learn commands and techniques that will try to mimic the more powerful full-blown AutoCAD program. Commands to be covered are as follows: Hatch; UCSIcon > On; UCS > New > 3Point; UCS > World.

17 Steps.

Module 14
(Course Code: M14) (Order Now!)

In this module we are going create attributes (information attached to a block). We will explore the different types of attributes and how blocks with attributes behave when they are inserted and how to control that behaviour. Commands to explore in this module: Attdef; Attdisp; Attdia; Attreq; Mirrtext; Attedit and -Attedit.

20 Steps.

Module 15
(Course Code: M15) (Order Now!) View solution for this module

In this module we are not going to add any more objects to our drawing. We will extract and use the attributes from the blocks created in the previous module. We will look at different ways of using these attributes. One way will be to insert the text directly into AutoCAD and the other will be to use a separate application to manipulate the data in first, such as MS Excel. The AutoCAD commands we will cover are ATTEXT; Edit > Paste Special...; MTEXT > Import Text... (Multiline Text); DDEDIT.

20 Steps.

Module 16
(Course Code: M16) (Order Now!)

In this module we are not going to add any more objects to our drawing. We will learn how to plot from Model space and from Paper space (other desriptions include, sheet assembly area and layout space). Commands to look at this time will include Pagesetup (File > Page Setup...); Plot; Tilemode; Mview; -Vports.

20 Steps.

Module 17
(Course Code: M17) (Order Now!)

This module is designed to be informational and discussion provoking, by pointing out the differences between Color Table based and named Style Tables for plotting in AutoCAD R2000+. It covers such things as converting your drawings from one style to the other and line weights, whilst keeping in mind that this module must remain simple enough for the basic fundamentals of this system to be easily understood.

15 Steps.

Module 18
(Course Code: M18) (Order Now!)

In this module we will learn about adding a new plotter using the PLOTTERMANAGER command (one that will plot to a JPEG file); PAGESETUP - saving changes to layout and adding and restoring page setup names; PREVIEW; create a Named Style (color table - pen assignments); we will also add text (MTEXT) to our paper space drawing; DDEDIT / MTEDIT.

17 Steps.

Module 19
(Course Code: M19) (Order Now!)

This module was written to highlight five different ways of showing the same thing in paperspace. Please print attached PDF files for reference. We will examine the differences between linetypes loaded using the standard ACAD.LIN and ACADISO.LIN files. Commands to be covered in this module are: PSLTSCALE; LTSCALE; PLINEGEN; PEDIT > LTYPE GEN.

14 Steps.

Module 20
(Course Code: M20) (Order Now!)

By default AutoCAD 2000 & LT will display a standard dimension style using arrowheads (if you start your drawing from scratch - no custom template). We will look at ways of changing some basic information to end up with a dimension style with Architectural Ticks (no arrowheads). We will see how this dimension style can be used in Model and Paper spaces differently.
