AutoCAD How to Create Layouts – The Quick way and the Normal way

Another week, another CAD video!

Have you been keeping up with the new videos? If not, leave a comment below or on twitter @cadintentions and let me know why, and what you would like to watch. Something like what’s on your list to learn, or even buy and I’ll make it into a video.

Now on to the week 5 video, ‘How do I create a new layout in autocad?’

In this video I go over how to create a layout the standard/basic way, as well as the quick shortcut everyone should be using to make their drawings. It always surprises me how many people ask “how do I create a Layout?” when it’s the basis of almost every drawing we produce, so I made this video to help you out.

Also, of you’ve been frustrated with making custom layout sizes in autocad this video will fix that as well, at the step when I choose the plot size you can simply select the one that works best for you when setting up your new layout.

Check out the video below – Autocad how to create layouts:
You should probably be a pro at making standard layouts now but if you’d like to speed up the process and use a template like at the end of the video you can check them out here: AutoCAD Title Blocks

If you have any questions about the video or want to see something in particular just let me know in the comments below.

Cheers and happy drafting!
