In-Canvas Viewport controls in AutoCAD...Part Deux!

If you use 3D - then hopefully you've discovered how easy it is to change viewport configurations, viewing angles and visual styles with the In-canvas viewport controls.  If not - check out my video to learn about columns 2 and 3 and you'll be up to speed in no time!

Note:  Even if you're just a 2D user - I love using the in-canvas viewport controls to quickly move from one saved view to another...super speedy!

And "yes!"  In-canvas viewport controls is a mouthful!  We couldn't have come up with a shorter name?


Are you using the In-Canvas Viewport Controls in AutoCAD?

If you are a 3D AutoCAD user - than (please) tell me you have discovered and are using the nifty In-Canvas Viewport Controls!  These handy tools make it easy to setup your viewports, switch to a different viiew, viewing angle or visual style.  They are basically a one-stop shop for 3D Viewing!

Check out my Cadalyst video - be sure to turn the sound wayyyy up.  And if you can't tell what I am whispering at the beginning and the end - I'm saying "Go Broncos!"

HP and the Autodesk Product Design Suite

Last summer I had the privilege of doing a video with the great folks at HP focused on Visualization and the Autodesk Product Design Suite.  This video has made its way around the world to the many Autodesk Universities as well as other HP events and has now landed on YouTub

OOPS I did it (in AutoCAD) again!

After teaching my "60 AutoCAD Tips in 60 Minutes" class at Autodesk University - a friendly attendee reminded me of the popular OOPS command (sorry I didn't catch his name!).  The OOPS command was AutoCAD's early attempt at an Undo command - and was a lifesaver (or job saver) in many cases.  30 years later - the OOPS command is still a handy tool to keep in your AutoCAD tool belt.
