AutoCAD Tutorial: Grid, Snap and Ortho Settings

Hey Everybody,AutoCAD Shortcuts

Brandon here back with another Autocad Tutorial video! Todays video is the 4th episode of 2 minute: Tip, Trick or Tutorial videos and in them I cover a basic command, tip or trick that will help make you a better drafter in ~2 minutes (yes I know some are 3 minutes, but bear with me, they’re still quick videos). This way you can learn something new, and not have to spend a lot of time learning it. (Let me know what you think of them in the comments, and please feel free to request new ones!)

So, this Tip, Trick or Tutorial video will be covering a few basic commands that you can use when working on or even setting up new drawings. In the video I go over a few ways to quickly turn on and off a handful of useful settings in autocad. These are ways to can toggle setting on and off on the fly using the buttons and quick F keys as well. This includes how to turn on and off grids, snapping, and ortho lock and a few others.

Let me know what you think and check out the video below:

As always, thank you so much for reading/watching, and don’t forget to let me know what tip, trick or tutorial you’d like to see next in the comments.
Cheers and happy drafting!
