### AutoCAD 2010 sample guide in PDF

1. 1. 202 s Chapter 3: Manipulating Objects Exercise: Rotate Objects In this exercise, you use the Rotate command to rotate objects in the drawing. You use the default rotate method for specifying a rotation angle, as well as the Reference and Copy options of the Rotate command. When you have finished, you will be able to use the Rotate command to rotate objects in other drawings. The completed exercise Completing the Exercise To complete the exercise, follow the steps in this book or in the onscreen exercise. In the onscreen list of chapters and exercises, click Chapter 3: Manipulating Objects. Click Exercise: Rotate Objects. 1. Open C_Rotate-Objects.dwg. 2. To rotate the computer: s Activate the Rotate command. s Select the computer object. Press ENTER. s Press SHIFT+right-click anywhere in the drawing. Click Insert. s Touch the computer block to display the Insert Object Snap marker, then select the point. Note: The Insert Object Snap override enables you to select the insertion point of the block. 3. To position the computer to face the chair: s Verify that the polar setting is selected. s Drag clockwise until the PolarSnap display reads 315 degrees. The distance is not critical, just make sure that your cursor is not activating any object snaps. s Click to select the point. Kliko këtu
2. 2. Lesson: Using Layers s 267 Practice Exercise: Layer Tools In this practice exercise, you create layers in the Properties Manager dialog box and select the layer from the Layer Control list to draw objects on the appropriate layer. 1. To create the layers: s On the ribbon, click Home tab > Layers panel > Layer Properties. s In the dialog box, click New. s Create the following layers: t Layer Name: Circle, Color: Red t Layer Name: Line, Color: Blue t Layer Name: Rectangle, Color: Green Note: If you enter the layer name and then a comma, a new layer name field appears. The layers are automatically listed in alphabetical order. 2. Close the Layer Properties Manager dialog box. 3. In the Layer Control list, select the Circle layer to make it current and draw circles on that layer. 4. Repeat the previous step: s Click the Rectangle layer to make it current and draw rectangles. s Click the Line layer to make it current and draw lines.
3. 3. 324 s Chapter 4: Drawing Organization and Inquiry Commands Exercise: Use Linetypes In this exercise, you load linetypes into the drawing and assign them to layers. You then create new geometry using the new linetypes. The completed exercise Completing the Exercise To complete the exercise, follow the steps in this book or in the onscreen exercise. In the onscreen list of chapters and exercises, click Chapter 4: Drawing Organization and Inquiry Commands. Click Exercise: Use Linetypes. 1. Open M_Using-Linetypes.dwg. 2. To load linetypes: s On the Home tab, click Properties panel > Properties to open the Linetype Manager dialog box. s In the Linetype Manager dialog box, click Load. s In the Load or Reload Linetypes dialog box, locate and click the CENTER linetype. s Locate the HIDDEN linetype and press CTRL +click the linetype (this enables you to select more than one option from the list, but not the options in between). s Click OK to load the lines and to exit the dialog boxes.
4. 4. Lesson: Using Text Styles s 75 Creating and Using Text Styles You use the Style command to create and manage text styles. By default, all new drawings contain two text styles, one named Standard and one named Annotative. Standard is the current text style for all new drawings, unless you base a new drawing on a template that has another style set as the current style. Creating and Using Text Styles Text styles are similar to layers in that they are used to organize objects in the drawing. You create a Text Style and make it current so that the text you enter appears in that style. You can also change the Text Style of selected text after it was placed in the drawing. To create text styles, you use the Text Style dialog box. To switch from the current text style to another, you can select a text style from the list on the Text panel the same way you can make a Layer current from the Layer Control list. Similarly, you can assign a text style to selected text from the text style list. Command Access Style Command Line: STYLE, ST Ribbon: Annotate tab > Text panel > Text Style Menu Bar: Format > Text Style
5. 5. Lesson: Creating Basic Objects s 65 Lesson: Creating Basic Objects All drawings consist of basic objects that you create using basic commands. In this lesson, you learn how to create objects such as lines, circles, arcs, rectangles, and polygons. You also learn how to use the Erase command to erase objects. Learning to create basic geometry is critical to success in the software. As you become proficient with basic geometry creation, you can move on to creating more advanced object types. Objectives After completing this lesson, you will be able to: s Use the Line command to create lines in the drawing. s Use the Circle command to create circles in the drawing. s Use the Arc command to create arcs in the drawing. s Use the Erase command to erase objects in the drawing. s Use the Undo and Redo commands to return to previous drawing states. s Use the Rectangle command to create rectangles in the drawing. s Use the Polygon command to create equal-sided polygons in the drawing.
