Understanding How YOU Can Save Time When You Use The 2D CAD Tools

Chief Architect is an outstanding 2D and 3D CAD program. It has tools that make assembling a building on your computer easy to do. In this workshop you'll discover the right way to use the CAD tools to work within the program. Normally, learning how things like, snaps, X-Y-Z, trim, fillet, champfer and may other functions are not covered in the beginning stages of the Chief training. By presenting this information early on you'll have a much better understanding of why all of those tools are in the program, how to use them and how they save you time throughout the drawing process.
