1
Introduction to AutoCAD Features
  • Sacramento City College
  • EDT 310

2
Objectives
  • Describe methods and procedures used in CAD.
  • Explain the value of planning your work and
    system management.
  • Describe the appropriate locations for saving
    drawing files.
  • Load AutoCAD from the Windows Desktop
  • Describe the AutoCAD screen layout and user
    interface.
  • Describe the functions of dialog boxes.

3
Objectives
  • Use the keyboard and an input device to select
    commands, enter text and pick locations on the
    screen
  • Identify the function of the AutoCAD DesignCenter
    and the Properties window.
  • Review Help.
  • Define function, control and shortcut keys.

4
The Tools of CAD
  • Computer
  • Software
  • These components together make up a system
    referred to as CAD.

5
Users of CAD
  • CAD is used by
  • Drafters
  • Designers
  • Engineers
  • Architects
  • They develop designs and drawings and plot them
    on paper.

6
CAD Power
  • CAD is extremely powerful.
  • Because of its speed, power, accuracy and
    flexibility it has surpassed manual drafting.

7
CAD Limitations
  • CAD does have limitations
  • CAD files are only electrical impulses
  • Computers cause repetitive strain injury.

8
The Applications of AutoCAD
  • We will learn how to construct, layout, dimension
    and annotate two-dimensional drawings.
  • Advanced AutoCAD classes will study
    three-dimensional drawing.

9
The Applications of AutoCAD
  • A drawing can have hundreds of colors and layers
    which contain different kinds of information.
  • The drawing objects can have intelligence in
    the form of attributes.
  • 3D models can be constructed, and rendered.
  • Animation can be used to rotate models so they
    can be viewed from any direction.

10
The Applications of AutoCAD
  • The entire project must be considered when
    developing a drawing plan.
  • A detailed knowledge of AutoCAD and its tools
    will assist you.

11
The Applications of AutoCAD
  • Learn the X,Y,Z Coordinate System
  • Drawings are constructed using the Cartesian
    coordinate system X-Y-Z
  • Origin (0,0)
  • Rectangular coordinates
  • X horizontal
  • Y vertical
  • Z third dimension
  • Distance measure horizontally is an X value
  • Distance measured vertically is a Y value.
  • Add the Z, creates 3D drawing.

12
Planning Your Drawing
  • Set a plan prior to working.
  • Determine drawings to be created
  • Determine how they will be titled and numbered
  • Seat of the pants approach does not work well
    here.

13
Planning Your Drawing
  • Use Drawing Standards
  • Standards are guidelines for operating
    procedures, drawing techniques, and record
    keeping.
  • Most companies and schools have established
    standards.
  • It is important that standards exist and are used
    uniformly by all CAD personnel.

14
Planning Your Drawing
  • Standards may include
  • Methods of file storage Location and name
  • Dimensioning techniques
  • File naming conventions
  • Text styles
  • Drawing sheet sizes and title blocks to be used
  • Linetypes
  • Drawing symbols
  • Color schemes for plotting
  • File backup methods and times of backup
  • The most important aspect of standards is that
    they are used.

15
Planning Your Work
  • Plan Your Work FIRST!
  • The time spent on a project will be shortened if
    good planning is performed up front.

Good Planning
Poor Planning
Time Spent
Project Progress
Time Spent
Project Duration/Time Expenditure Pyramid
16
Variables Customize AutoCAD
  • Learn the Function of Variables
  • AutoCAD uses variables to customize how it
    functions for each user.
  • Most variables can be changed by typing the name
    of the variable at the Command prompt, and
    changing a value.

17
SAVETIME Variable
  • One variable is SAVETIME.
  • SAVETIME saves your work at a user-defined time
    period.
  • Use SAVETIME variable to regularly save your
    work.

18
Drawing Planning Sheets
  • Use Drawing Planning Sheets
  • Good work plans save time
  • Planning should include sketches and drawing
    planning sheets.

19
Drawing Planning Sheets
  • Drawing Planning Sheets
  • These tools help in the following ways
  • Determines the drawing layout.
  • Sets the overall size of the drawing by laying
    out the views and required free space
  • Confirms the drawing units based on the
    dimensions provided
  • Predetermines the point entry system and locates
    the points
  • Establishes the GRID and SNAP settings

20
Drawing Planning Sheets
  • Presets some of the drawing variables such as
    LINETYPE, FILL and polyline width.
  • Establishes how and when various activities are
    to be performed.
  • Determines the best use of AutoCAD
  • Results in an even workload
  • Provides maximum use of equipment.

21
Planning Checklist
  • Take the time and plan your work.
  • Avoid tendency to want things to happen
    immediately.
  • Analyze the problem.
  • Study all engineering sketches.
  • Locate all available resources and list for
    future use.
  • Determine the applicable standards for the
    project.
  • Sketch the problem.
  • Decide on the number and kind of views required.

22
Planning Checklist
  • Determine the final plotted scale of the drawing,
    and of all views.
  • List the AutoCAD commands to be used.
  • Determine the drawing sequence (lines, features,
    dimensions, notes, etc.).
  • Follow the standards and refer to resources as
    you work.

23
Working Procedures Checklist
  • Several skills are required for you to become a
    proficient CAD user.
  • Establish a Working Procedures Checklist to
    assist you.

24
Working Procedures Checklist
  • Here are some hints
  • Plan all work with pencil and paper before using
    the computer
  • Check the Object Properties toolbar at the top of
    the display screen and the status bar at the
    bottom to see which layers and drawing aids are
    in effect.

25
Working Procedures Checklist
  • Read the command line at the bottom of the
    display screen before entering data. Constantly
    check for the correct command, instructions, or
    proper keyboard entry of data.
  • Watch disk drive lights to see when the disks are
    being accessed.
  • Think ahead.

26
Working Procedures Checklist
  • Learn new commands every day.
  • Don't rely on just a few that seem to work.
  • Find commands that can speed your work and do it
    more efficiently. (Shortcuts).
  • Save your work every 10 to 15 minutes in case of
    power failure or system crash.

27
Working Procedures Checklist
  • If you're stumped ask the computer for help.
  • Use on-line help.
  • Read the command line after entering data and
    before pressing the ENTER key.
