To Understand Installation Steps To Understand AutoCAD 2010
In General Steps are start the setup from hard disk or Beckup install with the following serial: 000- 00000000 copy adlmint.dll your installation directory and overwrite the existing file
Before you begin creating drawings, you should familiarize yourself with the interface. After completing this lesson, you will be able to start the application, activate the appropriate workspace, and identify key parts of the interface. The following image identifies key interface elements in Fig 01
You launch AutoCAD in the same way you launch other Windows applications, using one of the following two methods: n Double-click the AutoCAD 2010 icon on the Windows desktop. n Click Start > All Programs (or Programs) > Autodesk > AutoCAD 2010 > AutoCAD 2010.
When you launch the application, the interface elements displayed are only those associated with the active workspace. A workspace is a task-oriented drawing environment oriented in such a way as to provide you with only the tools and interface elements necessary to accomplish the tasks relevant to that environment.
By default, AutoCAD has four workspace configurations: 2D Drafting & Annotation 3D Modeling AutoCAD Classic Initial Setup Workspace
After you start the program you can switch to the desired workspace. The application will open with the last workspace used. The Workspace Switching dropdown list is accessed in the lower right corner of the AutoCAD window on the Status Bar shown in fig02
The following steps give an overview of activating the 2D Drafting & Annotation workspace Start AutoCAD. Use the default drawing or on the Quick Access toolbar, click New.
Select acad.dwt(imperial) oracadiso.dwt (metric)as the template file. Click the Workspaces settings icon, located at the bottom right corner of the AutoCAD window. Select 2D Drafting & Annotation.
Axis: Axis is the configuration / View of the Working Area, Normally it is in 2D (i.e. X-Axis & Y-Axis) but it can be rotated according to the view of object on the Screen. “3dorbit” command is used to make is rotate and to view its 3D figure (i.e. X-Axis, Y-Axis & Z-Axis). Command Line: It is bottom portion of Autodesk's AutoCAD 2010. It is a Command Line, which is mostly used for Drafting means for Accurate Measurements to check out Errors or Defects before Assembling.
Drawing Area: The Area / Space at which all work is to be performed. It is a Platform for all drawing and drafting work. In this Area 2D and 3D shapes can be creating / viewed.
