    If you visit cad tutor (dot) net they have some pretty good tutorials that might help you out. They have some video ones that have subtitles as well. Look around the site it helped me out a lot when learning AutoCAD

    I have no “manufacturing for metric dimensioning” template.

    I finally found, by bumbling, that acad_bsi.dwt is a metric template.

    I found what I needed (converting an existing drawing to metric dimensions) in the Options command under “AM:Standards”. From there I noticed that under Standard it had a choice “BSI” for metric, that is how I determined that the template “acad_bsi.dwt” is a metric template.

    can you make games with autocad knowing? + respond

  15. Metalmasterxxx says:

    Create a new one without “mm”…just don put anything… when you measuare angles you select the new one

  16. jagsmokey says:

    does anyone know where I can find tutorials with subtitles?? I am hard of hearing and it sucks that all I can see is the mouse clicking and drawing – but no explanations….:(

    Not just simple lines! There’s a reason for it’s (kinda huge) cost… It’s perfect 😀

  18. jdavis417 says:

    Only “Parametric” dimensions control the length of the line and parametric abilities aren’t available in the LT product. You can simply Stretch or grip edit the line to change it’s length. Dynamic input can help in this editing process. You will want to ensure that you are setting your dimensions to “Associative” in the User Preferences tab of the Options dialoge box. I’ve never used solid works and hope I never have to. Welcome to the world’s standard drafting software.

  19. jdavis417 says:

    In my opinion, you draw things to full scale in model space and deal with scale in paper space. The best way to deal with text heights in dimensions (and text) is to use the Annotative approach. This allows you to create the text & dimensions once and represent them at any or many different scales in the viewports in layout tabs (aka paperspace). See the Help files, Heidi Hewett’s blogs, some on this Youtube channel & Bill Fanes AU course. “Static” dimstyles are less powerful and I wouldn’t.

  20. jdavis417 says:

    You’ve found the reason I don’t like to use the suffix. This can be individually over-ridden by selecting one (or all with quick select or Filter) angular dimensions and deleting the suffix text in the Properties toolpalette. Another method is to create a Dimstyle Override. This can be confusing to those who might inherit your drawings or insert them as blocks into another. In my opinion, it’s better to address units with a note as he mentions at the end. Imperial doesn’t have this problem.

    thnx man….

  22. 1day1 says:

    great tutorial. only one thing. the angle here is also in mm as well as degrees. check min 7.00. is this easily removed without removing the other lengths in mm?

  23. alwlad says:

    I double click the dimension for some reason it will not let me change the number like solid works does. can you change that can you also add relations like in solid works

    im so glad your voice is normal, last year our class almost killed ourselves listening to the voice of the revit tutorial guy
