Expanded Library

Visibility and Layouts in AutoCAD

by Pierre Derenoncourt

In this series of tutorials, we learn how to take CAD drawings and designs and organize them on sheets using layouts and viewports. Software required: AutoCAD 2015.

What you'll learn

We'll begin by loading a title block template from within the AutoCAD sample files. From there, we'll add important information regarding our project and firm to the title block. Next, we'll learn how to quickly add viewports that we can scale, resize, and even copy. Finally, we'll add some drawing titles to each view and discuss the difference between annotative and standard text. By the end of this tutorial, you'll know how to take your concepts and designs and organize them on sheets for presentations and even construction documents. Software required: AutoCAD 2015.
