AutoCAD Layer Tutorial: How to Create, Merge, Delete & Change Layers

Hi All,
Brandon here back with another new AutoCAD Tutorial Video.autocad layers - merge, delete, create
Todays video is a bit longer than my recent 2min tips but don’t worry, it’s a good one! In this video I go over 4 standard ways to work with layers in AutoCAD and how to do them in the easiest, most straightforward way.
To start the video off, I go over where to find the layers in your AutoCAD drawing and how to create or make a new layer which is pretty straight forward. After showing how to create a new layer, I cover how to Merge multiple layers in autocad, which many people don’t realize is an option, but it can be a huge benefit in organizing and cleaning up drawings as well as just simplifying them. After we go over merging layers, I get in to a couple different ways to delete a layer in autocad, including a popular question of How to delete a layer with objects on it or one that you just can’t seem to delete, which is really helpful to know. And finally I go over a few last ideas and how to quickly move objects from one layer to another, or to change the layer of an object.

Check out the video below:
