AutoCAD How To Insert Drawings – 3 Simple Tricks To Import, Add & Reference DWGs

I hope you’ve had a great week so far, and were able to enjoy some time off to recharge over the weekend.

For us, last weekend the weather cooperated and made for a perfect time to relax and spend time with friends/family, including a day trip to the lake and some time on a secluded beach to hang out, swim, and skip rocks!
It’s been a busy month or two here with lots going on at work, with the family, and on the blog/channel, I want to thank everyone who joined and has been participating in the CAD Support Community/Forum! It’s been awesome and I’m excited to grow it even more in the coming weeks/months. The first group of spots filled up in just 3 days, which is so great! We’ve been getting to know each other and answering questions already, and today’s video is even based on one of the early requests! If you missed out on joining the Community or want to learn more, you can check out this link here ( to take part in the 2nd Enrollment open now! With that, let’s jump into this weeks video below:
