I have designed this book to be comprehensive and to include every significant feature of AutoCAD. Therefore, do not be concerned if some of the material seems too advanced. It will be there when you are ready for it.

Doing the Exercises


AutoCAD is a very customizable program. This book assumes that you are working with the default setup. However, a number of changes may have been made to your system that could result in menus, toolbars, and drawings appearing differently from those shown in this book. If you installed AutoCAD yourself and made some adjustments, you know what changes you made. However, if you are using a computer that was set up by someone else, it may help to talk to that person first, to see what changes were made.


In addition, as you work through some of the exercises in this book, you will make certain changes in AutoCAD’s setup. Most of these are minor changes that any user would make while drawing. Cautions and Tips accompany all changes that could have serious consequences, such as customizing the menu, for safety. For example, when customizing the menu, you will be instructed to copy the menu template file under a new name, and you will then work with the new menu file, not the original one. Nevertheless, if you are working on a network or sharing AutoCAD with someone else, it is proper computer etiquette to consult with others who may be affected by the changes you make.


If you do the exercises, I recommend that you do them from the beginning. Important instructions are given during earlier exercises that may affect your system later. For example, one of the first exercises is to create a new folder to hold your drawings from the exercises. This folder keeps your exercise drawings separate from other drawings created in your office. However, each exercise stands on its own so you can go back and do only the exercise you need.
