    That statement was not directed at you personally. No offense was intended. It was a generalization based upon how PF treats its students.

    That is covered in the course material a little, basic stuff. It is not required to use on any of their projects. I think that this is due to the way they check the students drawings. They are looking for specific points that will match. I didn't start using the viewports till I started in 3d stuff, they are needed there most.

    I also agree that the layouts and viewports should be covered, I had to lern how to use them through this forum.

    How many projects were there in the Penn Foster AutoCAD course of study and what were they called?

    Remark
    The first 3 projects were manual drafting tests IIRC.
    First Cad project:
    AutoCAD Blocks and Layers Oleson Village drafting project 4
    Structural Drafting Project 5
    Civil Drafting Project 6
    Hvac project 7
    Electrical project 8

    Project 9 was the elective projects that were actually different versions of projects 5-8.

    Thanks for the information Car5858. I want to make sure my folders are labeled correctly.
