I’ve been meaning to write a round-up post of a few of my favorite AutoCAD Sites and Resources for a while now but seem to have suffered from a bad case of procrastination for far too long. So when I was making a list of posts I want to write this month this one finally got moved to the top. There are literally hundreds and possibly even thousands of AutoCAD related sites on the web right now and narrowing it down to a best of list would be impossible. I quickly decided to go a different route with my selections today and simply flipped through my bookmarks and favorites list and picked out 8 sites. These sites give a cutaway look at some of the most helpful resources for new and advanced AutoCAD designers and drafters looking to keep up to date with CAD and the skills needed to excel in our industry. Without further ado here are my top 8: 1. The CAD Block Exchange Network: A great place to find those hard to come by autocad blocks. The website is based upon a free exchange method where you can upload your cad blocks for others to use and in turn download other cad users blocks for your use. While I don’t use the site very often, when I do happen to need a block I check out the Block exchange first and can usually find something I can use. 2. CAD Corner Canada: CAD Corner is an awesome resource of cad tutorials, tips and downloads. The downloads include a wide variety of useful lisp routines, blocks and hatches. It is definitely worth visiting and I recommend it highly.
There have been so many times that I have wished I had a quick list of the text commands in Autocad. You never know when you need one and just can’t remember what the command is. Use this list below or download the whole thing to have them just when you need them!
