Linetypes in AutoCAD

If you’re using AutoCAD, you’re using linetypes. But there’s more to linetypes than you might expect.

In the video for the “Leveraging Linetypes in AutoCAD” instructional demo at Autodesk University 2018, Sam Lucido provides all the tips and tricks you could imagine in order to go beyond the standard dashes, dots, and shapes.

“What about creating and designing custom lines based on your company CAD standards or specific project needs,” Lucido says. “You’ll learn how to create a compiled custom linetype library to be used for your company standard. Drawings need creativity and clarity. You’ll gain that innovative knowledge to create new linetypes that catapult your drawings to the next level. Most importantly, you’ll be able to bring value back to your employer and the knowledge to help you excel within your field.”
