Brandon here, back with a new 2 minute Tuesday video! In todays video I go over a quick and easy way to boost your productivity and speed in AutoCAD.
By using and creating a custom workspace in Autocad you can quickly switch how your workspaces is setup and laid out depending on the type of work you’re doing. This lets you always have all of your most used tools, palettes and options automatically switch for you no matter what you’re working on.
This can be useful in so many situations, including working on different disciplines of drawings, like a 3d modelling project and then having to move to working on a 2d floor plan. Creating custom workspaces and switching between them is as easy as clicking a button and can save you tons of time over your drafting career.
Ps. this is also how you switch your AutoCAD layout back to the classic version if you’re still one of those drafters that likes to get rid of the ribbon!
check it out in the video and make sure you let me know how it works for you!
