The Fastest Way to Set your AutoCAD Object Snaps!

If there is one thing in AutoCAD we can't live without - it's object snaps!  We choose our object snap settings based on what we're doing at any given time (ideally not needing to change the settings very often).  While hanging with the fabulous Autodesk Product Support folks in Lake Oswego - Volker Cocco brought up his speedy means of switching to his favorite osnap settings without the tedium of going through the status bar.

Get to the right Plan view in AutoCAD every time!

For those of you who work in 3D (which is probably less than half of you) - you know how the PLAN command loves to do a ZOOM Extents when switching to the PLAN view. Super annoying.  Often I just want the PLAN view of my current display without the extraneous extra step of zooming back in - that's where EXPLAN comes into play.

It's always so exciting when a new release of AutoCAD comes out!  Let me continue on my merry way of introducing more features to you!

A New Object Snap!

Have you ever needed to find the geometric center of an object such as a polygon or a closed polyline?  There can also be quite a difference from the "geometric center" and the "center" of an object.  The new GCE osnap in AutoCAD 2016 will definitely come in handy and cut down on a few construction lines.
