  • Use regions for complex area calculations
  • Create selection sets based on object properties
  • Reduce file size and maintain good CAD management practices by purging unreferenced objects
  • Use points to identify coordinate locations in your drawing
  • Place objects at evenly spaced intervals
  • Use QuickCalc to perform calculations or convert units.

Advanced Text

  • Understand the single interface for all text commands
  • Create text with tabs, indents, paragraph/line spacing
  • Create static and dynamic text columns

Working with DWF Files

Dynamic Blocks

  • Create single block to represent multiples object configurations Assign actions to specific parameters of you dynamic block, such as scale, stretch, move, rotate, flip and array
