Starting your AutoCAD First Drawing is always very exciting as a beginner. But there some ground rules you need to follow, although there is no hard and fast rule to implement them. But its ideal to use follow simple techniques and these are discussed below.
[help]Imperial / Metric Which to Use[/help]
Well, this is something you should know as a beginner. Imperial is a Inch Measurement while Metric is a Millimeter Measurement. But before you start creating your first drawing these need to be defined. In this blog we will mainly focus on Metric Measurement. But before you start drawing, these can be defined by the Command “UNITS”
AutoCAD Loading Screen.
As you see the AutoCAD Loading, as seen above, you get the default Screen in AutoCAD 2013 after loading
Now you can select the default acad.dwt template as shown in figure below and CLICK ON OPEN
Once you open the default AutoCAD Screen, you need to define the Limits. So, enter LIMITS in the Command Prompt
> At the Specify Lower Left Corner or [ON/OFF] <0.000,0.000>: Prompt, Press : Enter
> At the Specify Upper Right Corner <12.000, 9.000>: Prompt will be default in inches, But you can enter the required values based on the Units you specify earlier.
Now Press Z (Enter) A (Enter) to get the final Screen that can be used to create the AutoCAD Drawing – Ideally I can say, the Your First AutoCAD Drawing Screen and you can start your AutoCAD Drawing Files
