Following an introduction to plotting and publishing in AutoCAD, Bryant begins by exploring some general issues involved in output including using the STARTUP variable, working in metric and imperial units, as well as the model and layout tabs. He then looks at the page setup manager, demonstrating how to control output setup.
Following chapters look at issues such as publishing with AutoCAD viewports, which provide multiple views within a project, and working with scale and annotative scale.
The course closes with chapters looking at plotting tools and techniques, including plot orientation, plotter selection, customizing plot sizes, working with various file types; and finally publishing features, looking at the publishing dialogue box, sheet lists, set up and working with plot stamps.
