    AutoCAD® 2005 Sheet Set Best Practices White Papers

    The following three white papers on AutoCAD® 2005 Sheet Set Best Practices are being posted to the Autodesk web site any day, but you get them here first.

    Cheers,

    Best Practices Series
    Sheet Set Manager:
    Introduction to the Series

    Lynn Allen, Cadalyst columnist

    Wouldn't it be nice if an entire project consisted of just one drawing sheet, which we could simply create, plot, and hand over to our client? Unfortunately, in the real world, our projects consist of multiple drawing sheets: sometimes 10, 50, 100 or over 1,000 drawing files per project. How do most of us keep track of all those drawing files? We use Microsoft® Windows® Explorer.

    Best Practices Series - Part 1
    Sheet Set Manager:
    Organize Your Drawings

    Dieter Schlaepfer, Autodesk, Inc.

    You may have heard that the new Sheet Set Manager in AutoCAD® 2005 software can manage, publish, and transmit an entire group of project files. But did you know that you can use the Sheet Set Manager simply to organize and access your existing drawings much more effectively?

    There is almost no effort required, and you do not have to change the way you work!

    Best Practices Series Part 2
    Sheet Set Manager:
    Create a List of Sheets Instantly

    Heidi Hewett, Autodesk, Inc.

    Most sets of drawings include a cover sheet or title sheet that has a list of all the sheets in the set. This list enables people to find design data throughout the set of drawings, so it must always be accurate. As you add, remove, or reorganize sheets, you continually modify the list of sheets to ensure that it is up to date.

    In AutoCAD® 2005, you can easily create a sheet list table with data that is extracted directly from the Sheet Set Manager. If you make changes to the sheet set, you can instantly update the sheet list table to reflect the changes.
