    1. EXAMPLE OF APPLICATION OF THE AUTOCAD STRUCTURAL DETAILING - STEEL PROGRAM: STEEL WORKSHOP

    Use AutoCAD Structural Detailing - Steel for preparing steel workshop drawings. In this example, you learn the step-by-step method for framework and section modeling, editing the framework, and arranging elements in the final drawing layout. The drawing below shows an axonometric view of the workshop.

    To use this documentation, follow these basic usage rules:

    Any icon symbol - click the icon with the left mouse button.

    {x} - select the x option from the dialog.

    text - enter the underlined text on the command line of the program, and then press Enter.

    LMC and RMC - use the mouse buttons (Left Mouse Click and Right Mouse Click, respectively).

    To start AutoCAD Structural Detailing - Steel, click on the desktop (or click Start menu > AutoCAD Structural Detailing), and then select the Steel module. The software will include options (such as an extended menu, additional toolbar, tabs and the Object Inspector dialog) for preparing drawings.
