13 Introduction Welcome to the AutoCAD/AutoCAD LT 2008: Essentials Autodesk Official Training Courseware (AOTC), training courseware for use in Authorized Training Center (ATC ) locations, corporate training settings, and other classroom settings. Although this courseware is designed for instructor-led courses, you can also use it for self-paced learning. The courseware encourages self-learning through the use of the AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT Help system. This introduction covers the following topics: Course objectives Prerequisites Using this courseware Default installation CD contents Completing the exercises Settings for the exercises Installing the exercise data files from the CD Imperial and metric datasets Notes, tips, and warnings Feedback This courseware is complementary to the software documentation. For detailed explanations of features and functionality, refer to the Help in the software. Course Objectives After completing this course, you will be able to: Navigate the interface, open and close files, and use the Zoom commands to adjust the display of objects on the screen. Describe units, function keys, and coordinate systems and create basic objects, using different data input techniques, object snaps, object snap tracking, polar tracking, and PolarSnap. Select, modify, and adjust the properties of objects using object grips and the Move, Copy, Rotate, Mirror, and Array commands. Create and manage layers and linetypes and obtain geometric information from objects in the drawing. Modify objects by changing their size, shape, orientation, or geometric composition using Trim, Extend, Offset, Join, and other commands. Create layouts, and create and manipulate viewports on the layouts. xiii

14 Create and edit annotation objects using multiline and single line text. Enhance the drawing s visual appearance with hatch patterns and gradient fills. Create, edit, and manage dimensions and dimension styles. Create blocks and reuse them in your drawings using the Insert command, DesignCenter, and tool palettes. Utilize the DesignCenter and tool palettes to insert and create other content in your drawings. Create multiple segmented polyline objects, create the smooth curve objects of splines and ellipses, and add tables to your drawings. Create and use page setups, and plot your designs from layouts and model space. Use drawing templates to simplify the process of creating new drawings that contain all the required dimension styles, text styles, and layers that you would otherwise create manually, each time you created a new drawing. Prerequisites This courseware is designed for the new user who needs to know the essential commands necessary for professional 2D drawing, design, and drafting using AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT. No previous computer-aided design (CAD) experience is required. It is recommended that you have a working knowledge of Microsoft Windows 2000 or Microsoft Windows XP. Drafting and design experience is a plus. Using This Courseware The lessons are independent of each other. However, it is recommended that you complete these lessons in the order that they are presented unless you are familiar with the concepts and functionality described in those lessons. Each chapter contains: Lessons Usually two or more lessons in each chapter. Exercises Practical, real-world examples for you to practice using the functionality you have just learned. Each exercise contains step-by-step procedures and graphics to help you complete the exercise successfully. Default Installation The information in this courseware is presented in such a way that it is assumed you have installed AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT using the default installation parameters. You should be using the 2D Drafting & Annotation workspace as your active workspace throughout the course. You will learn how to do this in Chapter 1. CD Contents The CD attached to the back cover of this book contains all the data and drawings you need to complete the exercises in this course. xiv Introduction

15 Completing the Exercises You can complete the exercise in two ways: using the book or the onscreen version. Using the book Follow the step-by-step exercises in the book. Onscreen Click the AOTC AutoCAD 2008 Essentials icon on your desktop, installed from the CD, and follow the step-by-step exercises onscreen. The onscreen exercises are the same as those in the book. The onscreen version has the advantage that you can concentrate on the screen without having to glance down at your book. After launching the onscreen exercises, you might need to alter the size of your application window to align both windows. Introduction xv

16 Settings for the Exercises Each exercise is written with the assumption that the following Object Snap settings are active. You might need to confirm these settings for each exercise. Each exercise is written with the assumption that the following Status Bar options are turned ON. If necessary, adjust these options when you open the dataset for each exercise. Installing the Exercise Data Files from the CD To install the data files for the exercises: 1. Insert the courseware CD. 2. When the setup wizard begins, follow the instructions on screen to install the data. 3. If the wizard does not start automatically, browse to the root directory of the CD and doubleclick Setup.exe. Unless you specify a different folder, the exercise files are installed in the following folder: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Autodesk Learning\AutoCAD 2008\Essentials\ xvi Introduction

17 After you install the data from the CD, this folder contains all the files necessary to complete each exercise in this course. The datasets and exercises can be used with AutoCAD LT. The location of the files will be the same whether you are using AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT. The name of the shortcut for the online version of the exercises is named AutoCAD 2008 Essentials AOTC, but can also be used with AutoCAD LT Imperial and Metric Datasets For some of the exercises that specify units of measurement, alternative exercise tables are provided. You will see a note stating that an imperial and metric version are available. An example of the file naming convention is as follows: Open i_stair_settings.dwg (imperial) or m_stair_settings.dwg (metric). In the exercise steps, you will see either the imperial or metric value as shown in the following example: For Length, enter 13'2". For Length, enter 4038 mm. For exercises with no specific units of measurement, files are provided as shown in the following example: Open c_stair_settings.dwg (common). In the exercise steps, the unitless value is specified as shown in the following example: For Length, enter 400. Notes, Tips, and Warnings Throughout this courseware, notes, tips, and warnings are called out for special attention. Notes contain guidelines, constraints, and other explanatory information. Tips provide information to enhance your productivity. Warnings provide information about actions that might result in the loss of data, system failures, or other serious consequences. Feedback We always welcome feedback on Autodesk Official Training Courseware. After completing this course, if you have suggestions for improvements or if you want to report an error in the book or on the CD, please send your comments to Introduction xvii
