Starting AutoCAD 2004 is a path in keeping with studying and working towards the necessities of 2nd drawing utilizing AutoCAD. Bob McFarlane's hands-on strategy is uniquely fitted to autonomous studying and use on classes. the focal point on 2nd drawing in a single e-book, guarantees the reader will get an intensive grounding within the topic, with a better intensity of assurance than has a tendency to be on hand from normal introductions to AutoCAD. accordingly, this e-book presents a real, step by step, precise exploration of the AutoCAD features required at every one degree of manufacturing a second drawing - an technique frequently no longer present in the numerous software program reference publications available.The emphasis on studying via doing makes this booklet excellent for an individual taken with engineering, development or structure - the place the point of interest is on productiveness and useful talents. the writer has additionally matched the assurance to the necessities of urban and Guilds, Edexcel (BTEC) and SQA syllabuses.New positive factors in AutoCAD 2004 are coated during this e-book, making it an invaluable refresher path for a person utilizing AutoCAD at this point, and people upgrading to the hot software program liberate. The path is usually designed to be absolutely correct to a person utilizing different fresh releases, together with AutoCAD 2002.Bob McFarlane is Curriculum supervisor for CAD and New Media at Motherwell university, Scotland, and an Autodesk academic Developer. * an entire path on 2nd layout with AutoCAD in a single booklet - excellent for self reliant studying* routines integrated all through to help scholar studying and self overview* specialise in 2nd drawing recommendations offers in-depth insurance to this key introductory-level use of AutoCAD

1 ref start pt 1 pt 2 pt 3 pt 4 end pt 1 Line creation and co-ordinate input Relative (absolute) co-ordinate entry Relative co-ordinates are from the last point referenced and the @ symbol is used for the incremental entry. From the menu bar select Draw-Line and enter the following XY co-ordinate pairs, remembering ϽRϾ after each entry. prompt Specify first point and enter: 150,50 ϽRϾ start pt 5 prompt Specify next point and enter: @50,0 ϽRϾ pt 6 prompt Specify next point and enter: @0,50 ϽRϾ pt 7 prompt Specify next point and enter: @Ϫ50,0 ϽRϾ pt 8 prompt Specify next point and enter: @0,Ϫ50 ϽRϾ end pt 5 prompt Specify next point and right-click then pick Enter.
The two conventions are as follows: 1 Co-ordinate axes The XY axes convention used by AutoCAD is shown in Fig. 2(a) and displays four points with their co-ordinate values. When using the normal XY co-ordinate system: a) a positive X direction is to the right, and a positive Y direction is upwards b) a negative X direction is to the left, and a negative Y direction is downwards. 2 Angles When angles are being used: a) positive angles are anti-clockwise b) negative angles are clockwise. 2(b) displays the angle convention with four points with their polar co-ordinate values.
The user can ‘make their own shape’ for selecting objects to be modified. activate the ERASE command enter CP ϽRϾ at command line – crossing polygon option pick points in order as Fig. 11(d) then right-click and pick Enter right-click to erase the highlighted objects. Drawing, erasing and the selection set Activity Spend some time using the LINE, CIRCLE and ERASE commands and become proficient with the various selection set options for erasing – this will greatly assist you in later chapters. Read the summary and proceed to the next chapter.
