Getting to Know Your CAD Interface

Friday, 21 January 2022
Video Length:  56:48
Presented By:  Jaymz Wooden

Developing a strong familiarity with the CAD environment is a great way to maximize your efficiency and get your workflow up to speed. We'll take you on a tour through your CAD interface, covering the basics of the various tool panels and ribbons, options, setup preferences, and more. You'll then learn how to save all your preferred settings into a profile, which you can back up and even export for use in newer versions of CAD when you upgrade each year.
