Learning to use AutoCAD 2002
Can anyone point me to a few quality web sites on using and designing in Auto CAD 2002? I just go the program and would like to start creating plans for the laser cutters. I have done search after search and come up with mainly pay sites or sites advertising books. I know sites have to exist that will give me the basics of using AutoCAD.

When I got AutoCAD LT a few years ago, the manual had some good tutorials that really helped me get started. I can't speak for 2002 but I would imagine it is much the same. The tutorials weren't on the type of things I wanted to design at the time so I thought it would be a waste of time. I soon found out it was the drawing principles and methods I was learning that were the important things. I took an ACAD course later and realized that in some cases I had learned a better way of doing things than was taught in the course.
Have a look for the tutorials and run though them. Do them 2 or 3 times so that the principles stick.

The 2 biggest learning problems I see is not reading the command line, the program will prompt you for information get in the habit of reading the command line. The second is the snaps learn to use them from the start. Autocad has multiple ways of doing the same thing for almost every command so find what works for you. The tutorials are a great way to get started. I think I saw a (for dummies) book on Autocad if you can find one it's a good investment.
