Ascent AutoCAD 2020: Beyond the Basics (Mixed Units) eBook

The AutoCAD® 2020: Essentials guide is designed for AutoCAD® 2020 software running on Windows. This guide is not designed for the AutoCAD for Mac.

The objective of AutoCAD 2020: Beyond the Basics is to enable you to create, modify, and work with a 2D drawing in the AutoCAD software.

The AutoCAD® 2020: Beyond the Basics guide continues on from the topics covered in the AutoCAD® 2020: Essentials guide. It covers more sophisticated techniques that extend your mastery of the software. For example, here you go beyond the basic skill of using a template to understand the process of setting up a template, creating annotation styles, and how to work with external references. You learn such skills as:

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

The AutoCAD® 2020: Beyond the Basics guide is not recommended for users that have completed the AutoCAD® 2020: Fundamentals guide, because Beyond the Basics contains the same content.

  • Access to the 2020 version of the software. The practices and files included with this guide might not be compatible with prior versions.
  • A working knowledge of basic design/drafting procedures and terminology.
  • A working knowledge of your operating system.
