Learn AutoCAD by example with this tutorial-based guide from Autodesk Official Press

Whether you are just starting out or an experienced user wanting to brush up on your skills, this Autodesk Official Press book provides you with concise explanations, focused examples, and step-by-step instructions through a hands-on tutorial project that runs throughout the book. As you progress through the project, the book introduces you to the Microsoft Windows-based AutoCAD interface and then guides you through basic commands and creating drawings. A downloadable file is available from the website so that you can compare your work to the author's, and if necessary, start fresh with an intact drawing. Once you've completed the project, you will have proficiency in AutoCAD skills including:

  • Grouping, elevations, and hatches
  • Using text in drawings
  • Dimensioning
  • External references
  • Layouts and printing
  • Using 3D

section, you’ll use the Block Editor again, this time not to define a new block but to modify an existing one. More specifically, you’ll modify the A-GLAZ (window) block and see how the changes you make are reflected throughout your drawing. Let’s say that the client who’s building the cabin finds out that double-glazing is required in all windows. You’ll want the windows to show two lines for the glass. If you revise the A-GLAZ block definition, the changes you make in one block reference will

Use the Zoom Previous tool to view the entire drawing. All windows in the cabin now have double-glazing.

Alternatively, you could also start the REFEDIT command from the Reference panel on the Insert tab, or by selecting the Xref and using the right-click context menu to choose the Edit Xref In-Place option. The Reference Edit dialog box opens (see Figure 13-25). On the Identify Reference tab, I13C-SPLAYO (M13C-SPLAYO) is listed as the selected Xref with the North Arrow block shown as a nested reference. A preview window illustrates the Xref drawing. Figure 13-25: The Reference Edit

The rectangle is drawn across the opening, creating a door in a closed position (see Figure 4-44, right). The door now needs to be rotated around its hinge point to an opened position. When you used the Rectangle (RECTANG) command to draw the swinging doors, you had to use relative Cartesian coordinates because relative polar

The menu expands to show the 11 methods for creating an arc. On the menu, 10 of the 11 options have combinations of three aspects that define an arc. The arc for this door swing needs to be drawn from the right end of the upper jamb line through a rotation of 90º. You know the start point of the arc, the center of rotation (the hinge point),
