AutoCAD/Land Desktop - Plotting Basics (RV-6696)

Start Date
End Date
As a manager, you know how to get a drawing from the flat file and run it through the blueprint machine- but can you do the same with an AutoCAD® drawing file? This 3-hour interactive online course will save the day. Aimed primarily at those completely new to plotting AutoCAD drawings, this course will take you on a cruise to the island of Plo Ti Tout (plot it out) and guide you through the process of finding a drawing and creating a polished plot from a drawing with previously established plotting standards. It will also address a method of creating a plot from a drawing for which no standards have been established. If you are not careful, you may learn some of the secrets of the CAD gods.

To get the most from this course, you should follow along using your own copy of AutoCAD® 2000 or newer or Autodesk® Land Desktop 2 or 3. However, the content may be understood without it. Due to the myriad of plotters available today, this course does not attempt to teach the operation of your plotter. That must be learned within your office.
