Lesson 4: Title Block Parameters



In this lesson, students will complete the necessary parameter settings to update an AutoCAD template with a border to be used for decimal based projects. Key terms and menus will be discussed and adjusted so students know how to locate them and how to reset them if necessary. The purpose of this lesson is to have the students create a template they can use repeatedly to start any decimal based drawing.
