AutoCAD Beyond the Basics

The AutoCAD®/AutoCAD LT® 2018: Beyond the Basics continues on from the topics covered in the AutoCAD®/AutoCAD LT® 2018: Essentials student guide. It covers more sophisticated techniques that extend your mastery of the software. For example, here you go beyond the basic skill of inserting a block to learning how to create blocks, and beyond the basic skill of using a template to understand the process of setting up a template. You learn skills such as:

  • Using more advanced editing and construction techniques.
  • Adding parametric constraints to objects.
  • Creating local and global blocks.
  • Setting up layers, styles, and templates.
  • Using advanced plotting and publishing options.

The AutoCAD®/AutoCAD LT® 2018: Beyond the Basics student guide is designed for those using the AutoCAD® or AutoCAD LT® 2018 software with a Windows operating system. This student guide is not designed for the AutoCAD for Mac software. This student guide is not recommended for users that have completed the AutoCAD®/AutoCAD LT® 2018: Fundamentals student guide as Beyond the Basics contains the same content.
