AutoCAD 3 LECTURE NOTES: CLASS 01 © 2009 Xone Consulting Ltd. Page 1 of 21 AGENDA: 1. Initial Setup in AutoCAD 2010 2. Introduction to the 3D Workspace 3. Setting 3D Display Options 4. Customizing The Ribbon 5. Creating 3D Objects 6. Viewing 3D Objects 7. Using Visual Styles Initial Setup in AutoCAD 2010 AutoCAD 2010 displays an Initial Setup dialog box which allows you to choose an Industry that describes your work such as Architecture, Manufacturing, General Design, etc. . Selecting an industry will determine the types of tools which will initially be displayed when you start working and will save this set of tools and interface as new custom Workspace called "Initial Setup Workspace1".In addition to an Industry type, you can further customize your workspace by selecting one or more sets of task-based tools such as 3D Modeling, Rendering, Reviews, and Sheet Sets. For each option you select, more tools will be added to your initial workspace. The final choice in the Initial setup dialogs allow you to specify the drawing template used in your first drawing. You can choose the default AutoCAD template, browse to another AutoCAD template, select your own custom template, or select and industry and system of measure such as Feet and Inches or Millimeters.

AutoCAD 3 LECTURE NOTES: CLASS 01 © 2009 Xone Consulting Ltd. Page 2 of 21 Introduction to the 3D Modeling Workspace Workspaces are task based environments which display tools, commands, and options related to a specific type of work. When you use a workspace, only the tabs, panels, and palettes that are relevant to a particular task are displayed. You can create your own workspaces and or modify the default workspaces. To create or change a workspace, Display, hide, and rearrange your toolbars and windows, and then save the current workspace from the Workspaces control on the Application Status bar. (Prior to AutoCAD 2010, workspaces are selected on the Workspaces toolbar) There are three default Workspaces predefined in AutoCAD 2010 AutoCAD Classic workspace is the traditional, toolbar-based environment from Pre-2007 releases. It may be used when creating and editing a 2D drawing or for working on layouts of a 3D model. 2D Drafting and Annotation workspace provides tools for Drawing and Modifying 2D elements, working with Layers and Properties, Annotating drawings, creating Blocks, setting views, etc. 3D Modeling workspace is a working environment that displays primarily 3D related command palettes and starts with a 3D view of the work area instead of the plan view that is used in 2D drawings.
