Layers AutoCAD Tutorial

AutoCAD layers are a way to group objects so that the groups can have common formatting. For example, you may want your objects to show up in one color and your dimensions to show in another. Create a separate layer for each, then you can change all the dimensions or all the objects at the same time. You may show or hide layers, change the color, lineweight, or linetype. AutoCAD layers are utilized often to make drawings easier to read.
