I hope you had a great week and getting ready for an even better weekend. I know this one is a few days late but I wanted to get it up on the blog before the weekend and next week’s post.
In today’s 2 Minute Tuesday x Tuesday Tip Post, we take a look at a super useful yet underutilized feature within AutoCAD called Viewport Overrides. VP Overrides allow us to customize layer properties like color, linetype, lineweight, and even transparency on a viewport to viewport basis. By changing these settings in an override, the actually object properties remain the same in every other layout/viewport as well as in the model space.
This allows us to selectively highly or in our examples case dull/grey out specific linework without affecting the rest of our drawing. This one really is helpful and I hope you’ll take a look and enjoy the video below!
