In AutoCAD, you can treat your layout as a sheet of paper upon which you can arrange the parts of your drawing systematically, as well as add annotations and other details before creating the final output.

It is always advisable to create your final print-ready drawings in a layout view. Using the layout view, you can arrange the parts of your drawing, such as the title block, the bill of materials (BOM), copyright information and annotations, easily and with the appropriate scale.

In this article, I will explain how to use the layout view in detail with a sample M10 metric nut and bolt drawing. You can use your own example to follow along with the tutorial.

We will start by creating a plot-ready drawing in layout view with a detail view, a section view, dimensions, a title block and annotations.
