Drawings are made up
of objects. In general, you draw objects by specifying points with
the pointing device or by entering coordinate values at the Command
can create a range of objects, from simple lines and circles to
spline curves, and ellipses. In general, you draw objects by specifying
points with the pointing device or by entering coordinate values
at the Command prompt.
- Draw Linear Objects
A line, the most basic
object, can be one segment or a series of connected segments.
- Draw Curved Objects
Curved objects are arcs,
circles, polyline arcs, donuts, ellipses, and splines.
- Draw Construction and Reference
Construction lines and
reference points are temporary objects you create to help you draw
- Create and Combine Areas
Regions are two-dimensional
enclosed areas that have physical properties such as centroids or
centers of mass. You can combine existing regions into a single,
complex region to calculate area.
- Create Revision Clouds
Revision clouds are
polylines that consist of sequential arcs. They are used to call
attention to parts of a drawing during the review stage.
