AutoCAD’s layers allow us to show certain components while hiding others. Turning them on and off can become tedious, especially when coordinating multiple disciplines and building phases.

Layer States can expedite the process by controlling which viewports show specific layers. Want your new construction to be shown alongside proposed demolitions? Want only plumbing to be shown in one view, and HVAC in another? Layer States will allow you to seamlessly change between different views and layer groups

This short video explains how to use Layer States to their full potential in AutoCAD. For more information, please contact us at
