By Heather Miller

Many AutoCAD devotees excitedly anticipate KaDe King’s great sessions at Autodesk University. Luckily, you can tap into her knowledge and insights from the comfort of your own home, office, or wherever you might be. In her Faster Ways to Select Your Objects and Clean Up Your Drawings in AutoCAD hands-on lab available on the AU site, KaDe’s lab explores how to help you save time and energy with your drawings.

“A common workflow issue is managing drawings with CAD standards issues: blocks on the wrong layer, text with the wrong style or size, and so on,” she says. “But taking the time to fix these issues can be a daunting process. In this lab, we will walk through several tools that AutoCAD software offers to speed up this process. You will also learn techniques to make your drawings open faster, have smaller file sizes, and reduce crashing. This is a crucial part of your day-to-day workflow!”
