AutoCAD

My first experience with AutoCAD goes back to the DOS era, AutoCAD 11. Since 2002, I’ve been involved in CAD maintenance and user debugging. We've created specific Profiles and settings for each contract.  Moved all the settings to the network drives, where super users update the blocks and scripts. Minimized maintenance hours and updates in each station. If Profiles would be corrupted, we’ve integrated a Reset Profile into the custom dialog box.
