Good evening everyone.

 

Just a simple question tonight, is there an option to add a 3rd angle of or 1st angle projection symbol to my drawing automatically?

 

Also im just starting to dabble with the drawing template files and it seems a little more diffulcult then Autocad to setup.

 

Is there a way for instance to set the precicsion of the dimensions in the style? so as i dont have to manually do it after adding every dimension?

 

Or has someone got a link to a reasonbly easy to understand tutorial for creating my own templates for future use?

 

Cheers Josh

Copy the 3rd Angle Sketched Symbol from the attached file into your template file.
If the symbol appears in all of your drawings - why not add to your company standard template titleblock or border.

 

The rest of your question takes a bit more - can probably find information here http://www.mcadforums.com or here http://au.autodesk.com

Excellent thanks JD,

 

I managed to get your symbol inserted by pasteing it into the drawing.

 

How do i add it permantley to the temaplate?

 

Cheers Josh
