Hatching in AutoCAD

Home > AutoCAD > Basics
Hatching is used to add shaded patterns to objects and shapes within an Autocad drawing. Hatch patterns can be used to indicate a material to be used, such as a concrete hatch. Alternatively it could be used to make an area of a drawing stand out.

Text in AutoCAD

Home > AutoCAD > Basics
Text can be added to an Autocad drawing to create notes and labels on your drawings. There are two different text commands used to add text to drawings: Text and Mtext. The text command is a simple way to add basic text notes. The height and rotation of the text can be quickly specified and the text can be viewed on the drawing while being typed.

Using Layers

Home > AutoCAD > Basics
Layers are a way of managing, tidying and also controlling the visual layout of a drawing. A whole section of a drawing can be turned on or off, or simply one aspect can be controlled - text for example. This is all done by using layers within Autocad. The concept of layers is used in other software applications, such as Paintshop programs. For those not aware of the concept, we'll start from the beginning: When a new Autocad drawing is created, everything which is drawn is drawn on the one default layer, named 0. When creating drawings, the layer 0 shouldn't really be used. New layers should be set up with names corresponding to the content contained on them.

Introduction to AutoCAD

Home > AutoCAD > Basics
Welcome to the world of CAD - In this tutorial you will be learning the basics of AutoCAD. The course is designed so that the commands and instructions should work on almost any version of AutoCAD, although this version is designed specifically for AutoCAD 2005. By the end of this course you will have the skills to develop 2D drawings and print them out to scale.

Help With Modify Commands

Home > AutoCAD > Basics
Here we will cover the modify tools, which give us control over simple shapes we have created. As the name suggests - we can modify drawing elements.

Using Polylines

Home > AutoCAD > Basics
Polylines draw lines similar to the line command we used in lesson 2, but are a lot more powerful. Lets start by drawing the same plot of land we drew in lesson 2, but this type using polylines. The polyline command is situated on the draw toolbar.

AutoCAD Drawing Limits

Home > AutoCAD > Basics
When the zoom all command is chosen, AutoCAD zooms to the extent of the user defined limits. Limits can be thought of as the extent of the drawing area. The AutoCAD drawing area is, in theory, infinite. As long as you continue to draw, AutoCAD will continue to give you the drawing space. If thought of in practical terms, if we were to manually pencil draw a 1:1 scale (full size) drawing of a wrist watch, why draw it on an A0 sized sheet of paper when A4 size is adequate? AutoCAD drawing limits follow the same logic. We can tell AutoCAD the drawing space we require (although we have the option to increase this if we so desire at a later stage). AutoCAD will display a grid to the extent of the drawing limits specified.

Pan & Zoom in AutoCAD

Home > AutoCAD > Basics
Here we'll take a quick look at the various zoom commands available, and their uses.

Basic AutoCAD Commands

Home > AutoCAD > Basics
Open up AutoCAD, you should be greeted with a screen asking if you want to open an existing drawing or start from scratch. (Dependant on your version of AutoCAD, the screen will be slightly different.

An Introduction to AutoCAD

Home > AutoCAD > Basics
AutoCAD is a Computer Aided Design (CAD) program used by just about every Engineering and Design office in the world. Although there are alternative CAD packages, AutoCAD is by far the most widely used system. Autodesk's AutoCAD is the industry leader in CAD packages. Used by Civil Engineers, Architects, Mechanical and Electrical Engineers, Aeronautical Engineers plus many other disciplines. There have been several versions of Autocad over the years, with each new version introducing new and more powerful features than its predecessor. The latest version of AutoCAD (at the time of writing) is Autocad 2005.

Working with X-Refs

Home > AutoCAD > Basics
An X-ref is an ‘external reference' to another AutoCAD drawing file. One file can reference many other files and display them as if they were one.

Creating Tables in AutoCAD 2005

Home > AutoCAD > Basics
Tables are a new AutoCAD object that is can be created and customized by the user. Tables can be used for parts lists, revision history and time you need to organize text.

Creating New Materials in AutoCAD

Home > AutoCAD > 3D
Once you start working with AutoCAD's materials, you'll soon realize that you don't really have a large selection. What is you need a white stucco material for a wall? Or grass for the lawn, or brushed aluminum, or... well, you get the picture. What you need to do is create your own materials.

Adding Materials to 3D objects

Home > AutoCAD > 3D
One of the more interesting aspects of working in 3-D is that you can visualize what your design will look like. You have so far used the hide and shade commands to give you some idea towards how the final piece will look. The next step is to learn about the RENDER command. This command is the most powerful one for viewing your objects. Using render, you are able to add realistic lighting and materials to get the most realistic view of what you're designing.
