Trying to figure out which of the two plots on your desk is the most up-to-date version of a plan sheet is never much fun. Of course, even if you know which plot is the latest, you’ll still need to know where it’s saved to make any updates to it. By including information such as when a drawing was plotted and where it was saved in the margins of your sheets, plot stamps can help you avoid time consuming dilemmas like these.
There are several different ways you can add plot stamps to your drawings using Autodesk AutoCAD, but the Field’s functionality is perhaps the easiest and most versatile of these methods. Check out the video above to learn how with nothing more than a piece of multiline text (MTEXT) you can quickly and easily add a plot stamp to you border blocks.
