 Build Custom Linetypes with Express Tools

Build Custom Linetypes with Express Tools



Autodesk's Jeff Bartels covers how to use the built in Express Tools available in both Civil 3D and AutoCAD to create custom linetypes.
This is a Tools for Tuesday post and video.
See the Jeff Bartels YouTube Channel.
and the Civil Immersion blog.


AutoCAD Linetypes are frustrating. Jeff does a good job of explaining how to use the built-in Express Tools command for linetypes in a reasonably short video.
Even very useful and necessary stuff like decompling SHX files so you can compile them back together into new ones. Hoorah.
Do this work in raw AutoCAD not in Civil 3D. Just sayin'.

Most of this video is a remix of an AU 2020 session Jeff delivered.

Do you wonder who invented the original AutoCAD Express Tools and the even the product name?
Got the orginal shrink-wrapped product floppy disks and tee shirts to prove it.
