Customize and Communicate.
Every new version of AutoCAD has a list of features and enhancements that come with it. While often these improvements consist of speed, performance or workflow adjustments chosen by Autodesk, AutoCAD 2011 includes some of these and then more. AutoCAD 2011 lets you completely customize your workspace and tools to fit your personal preferences and also offers new avenues for sharing your work with colleagues and customers around the world.
By focusing on the way engineers in the field actually accomplish their work, which is to say, thousands of different ways, AutoCAD has expanded its flexibility to let you make it perform just the way you need it to. Even though AutoCAD now comes in releases geared toward specific industries, Autodesk recognizes that many firms still prefer the versatility of the standard professional release. Now users can arrange tools and customize the software to handle the needs of almost any project at hand.
User Interface Options
While itâ€™s easy to think of the user interface as a â€˜surface levelâ€™ consideration, the way tools and menus are arranged on a userâ€™s screen literally defines the way he or she will work. And because the AutoCAD workspace has gone through so many different iterations over the years, more experienced engineers and designers may no doubt prefer a more classic look. Now any number of combinations and arrangements are possible, and the training DVD from Infinite Skills shows you exactly how you can change the look and feel of AutoCAD 2011 to help you be as productive as possible.
AutoCAD 2011 features a programming interface that lets you develop function applications, utilities and commands to streamline your use of AutoCAD. This is an excellent resource for those who must repeatedly accomplish the same task. Programming within AutoCAD effectively expands the functionality of the design platform in any number of ways.
Third Party Services
Because AutoCAD is the go-to tool for hundreds of engineering and design disciplines, it’s one of the most effectively supported software platforms in existence. This means robust support not only from Autodesk in the form of upgrades and tweaks, but also third party plugins that let you do more with the software and extend your design options even further.
AutoCAD 2011 Training DVD
This unique AutoCAD 2011 Training DVD from Infinite Skills gives you unprecedented control over your design environment by not only giving you tips on customization but also showing you how everything works. New users will get practical guidance in the fundamentals, and more intermediate learners will find out more about 2011â€™s new features and also some time-saving techniques that are not widely discussed in online forums.
While itâ€™s true that in traditional engineering circles a good manual is hard to beat, these video lessons function as an interactive guide book. Each subject is split into its own lesson, letting you quickly browse to the task or topic you need to know at a given moment. The Infinite Skills AutoCAD Training will get beginners started with the software but also stand as a useful resource for those already using the software day to day.
