AutoCAD Tutorial: Model Space vs Paper Space – What’s the Difference?

I mentioned in my last post that it had been a while since I had posted to the blog or a new video, and I said I was going to fix that and start posting more.
Well, I am excited to say I’ve kept to it! I just uploaded a new video and blog post just for you guys.

I plan to continue these videos, short quick tips and tutorials with autocad, civil 3d as well as gear tips and recommendations in a bit of a weekly episodic fashion.
The goal is to group them into weekly/bi-weekly episodes and run 4-6 month seasons, so if you have any questions you want to see answered or gear you want reviewed just hit reply and let me know!

For episode 2, the video answers a question I got a couple weeks ago. What is the difference between model space and paper space (layout) and when should you use which?

In the video I go over the differences and how to quickly switch between them and set up your layouts:

I hope this has helped better explain the differences between model space and paper space (layout), but if you have any questions whatsoever please don’t hesitate to ask me in the comments below.

Cheers and happy drafting!
