AutoCAD is extremely customizable to a user’s preferences, in this document, a few common modifications will be explained (pros and cons) and you will be able to make a more educated decision when setting up your program. Note that these setups can be changed easily at any point, so you are not making a huge commitment to one over another. A quick note, AutoCAD is a program based off of commands, these commands can be run through icons on toolbars or tool palettes (point and click), and they can also be typed out at any point. The setups below will work better for either one of the three ways in which you call out your commands. Typed commands tend to *never* change whereas toolbar and tool palette icons do change, so when going from one version of AutoCAD to another, typed commands will be the same (making transitions very smooth) however if you use toolbars and palettes, there might be a steeper learning curve when going between versions of the program. Default AutoCAD View/Settings This setup is the default mode (or close to it, any extraneous tool palettes that are open can be closed) and it is very similar to how Microsoft Office 2007 is setup. If you wish to use this setup, that is perfectly fine, however note that Jerry’s AutoCAD notes will be specifically for toolbars which *should* (but may not) coincide with tool palettes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
