Tips for Getting Ahead 

With a new year comes the inevitable planning process-planning personal and professional goals to be achieved within the year. For most AUGI members, the goal to advance their knowledge and use of Autodesk products hovers near the top of their planning lists.

It is not by chance that AUGIWorld tackles “advancement” in the January 2016 issue. Murray Clack helps AutoCAD users with “Command and Setting Tips to Help You Advance.”

In “How to Customize Your Environment,” Melinda Heavrin demonstrates how to get AutoCAD Architecture tweaked to your liking so you can hit the new year running.

And there’s much more in this issue that prepares you for advancement in 2016.
