42 “Must-Know” AutoCAD Concepts for Designers …

35 Years | 6 Continents | 11 Countries | 41 States | 1000’s of Students

Apart from making me sound really old, those statistics bring some ‘street cred’ to what I have discovered as the fundamental AutoCAD® skills every Designer should have. I sorted through the topics listed in the Index of The AutoCAD Workbench, Final Edition (see below) and came up with seven “Must-Know” concepts from each of the six chapters of the book.

For those of you wanting to “know-what-you-should-know” if you’re a Designer at a contract furniture dealership – or in any discipline requiring fundamental AutoCAD skills – below is a PDF listing 42 topics that I would consider the ‘Must Know’ concepts and features that every Designer should know if they’re using AutoCAD in a production environment.

I’m sure there will be ideas on what else should be there, but this collection is a good beginning.
