can use a variety of precision drawing tools to help you produce
accurate drawings quickly and without performing tedious calculations.
- Use Coordinates and Coordinate Systems
coordinate input, you can use several coordinate system entry methods.
You can also use a movable coordinate system, the user coordinate system
(UCS), for convenient coordinate entry and to establish workplanes.
- Use Dynamic Input
Dynamic Input provides a command interface near
the cursor to help you keep your focus in the drafting area.
- Snap to Locations on Objects (Object
of entering coordinates, you can specify points relative to existing
objects such as endpoints of lines or center points of circles.
- Restrict Cursor Movement
tools are available that you can use to restrict or lock the movement
of your cursor.
- Combine or Offset Points
specify a new point location, you can combine coordinate values
from several points or you can specify offsets from existing objects.
- Specify Distances
specifying a point, you can enter distances, offsets, and measured intervals.
- Extract Geometric Information from
and calculation commands can provide information about objects in
your drawing and do useful calculations.
- Use a Calculator
can access a calculator function as you work with the program. You
can use either the QuickCalc calculator interface or the Command
