AutoCAD 2016 (Part Deux!)

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.

Introducing...AutoCAD 2016! (Part One)

Updated (and far better) Revision Clouds

Keeping track of your AutoCAD Drawings!

With so many projects and so many different drawings - it can be difficult to keep track of the various drawing directories.  Whether you want AutoCAD to always display the file directory in the on-screen title - or if you just want some super speedy ways to find the directory your open drawing file is located within - my latest Cadalyst video tip should help you find your way!

All about Offset in AutoCAD

For those of you who watched the Super Bowl...why did Wilson throw the ball instead of handing it over to Lynch?  How embarrassing (and my dog will never get over it)

And speaking of not being totally understood...do you REALLY understand all the OFFSET command has to offer?

Oh sure - you use OFFSET all the time...but do you know how to offset to the current layer?  Did you know you could offset AND erase the original object?  Did you know you could set Offset to Multiple and offset over and over and over (and over) again?

A Little Super bowl Fun!

 For those of you who know me...you know I LOVE football!  I grew up going to Rams games with my Dad (when they were based in LA) and I was all about being his little football buddy.   For the last few months of the year, Sundays are all about watching the games (and Thursday nights...and Monday nights...).  Weekends in January are all about the playoffs - don't even think of asking me to miss one!
