Get started with nanoCAD

No matter if you are a novice or an expert CAD user, it’s always good to stay tuned with the nanoCAD Platform's capabilities and improve your design workflow. Watch the video lessons below to learn how to work efficiently with nanoCAD and its professional modules.

Lesson 31 - Advanced Dimensioning Methods in nanoCAD

nanoCAD has the flexibility to show several kinds of advanced dimensions. In this video, you learn how to have both Imperial and metric distances on dimensions, as well as how to show four kinds of tolerances on dimensions.

Lesson 30 - Working with Dimensions Styles

nanoCAD lets change the look of dimensions through the use of styles. Apply a different style, and the dimension looks different instantly. In this video, you learn how to make a new dimension style, and then apply it to existing dimensions. As well, you learn how to change the look of a dimension on-the-fly with the mDim command's Properties option.

Lesson 29 - Editing Dimensions in nanoCAD

Once dimensions are placed in drawings, they can be edited. nanoCAD lets you change their position and their look. In this video, you learn how to use grips to change the position of dimensions, and the Properties panel to change their look. In addition, you learn how to break dimension lines to make drawings look cleaner and how to flip the arrowheads on dimensions.

Lesson 28 - Semiautomatic Dimensioning With the mDim Command

Although nanoCAD produces perfectly accurate drawings, it can be useful to place dimensions to get a feel for the overall size of objects. In this video, you learn how to use the mDim command to place a variety of dimensions on straight, angles, and curved entities -- semi-automatically, because nanoCAD senses the entity type to determine the correct dimension to place.
