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.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there, I'm Peter with Digital Tutors, an Autodesk authorized publisher. In this set of tutorials, we'll learn how to take our drawings and designs and organize them on sheets using layouts, and view ports. We'll begin by loading a title block from a template, within the autoCAD sample files. From there, we'll add important information regarding our project and firm to that title block. Next we'll learn how to quickly add view ports 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 course, you'll know how to take your concepts and designs and lay them out on sheets for presentations and even construction documents. So with that I'm ready to get started and I'll meet you in the next lesson.
