The objective of AutoCAD 2021: Beyond the Basics is to enable you to create, modify, and work with a 2D drawing in the AutoCAD software.

The AutoCAD 2021: Beyond the Basics guide continues on from the topics covered in the AutoCAD 2021: Essentials guide. It covers more sophisticated techniques that extend your mastery of the software. For example, here you go beyond the basic skill of using a template to understand the process of setting up a template, creating annotation styles, and how to work with external references. You learn such skills as:

  • Using more advanced editing and construction techniques
  • Adding parametric constraints to objects
  • Creating local and global blocks
  • Setting up layers, styles, and templates
  • Attaching External References

The AutoCAD 2021: Beyond the Basics guide is not recommended for users that have completed the AutoCAD 2021: Fundamentals guide, as content for Beyond the Basics is already covered in the Fundamentals course.
