AutoCAD 2014 Essentials: 02 Drawing Fundamentals
Video: WelcomeCreate basic geometry in AutoCAD 2014, and learn to draw and edit lines and shapes.
In this installment of AutoCAD 2014 Essentials, author Jeff Bartels concentrates on the particulars of creating basic geometry in AutoCAD, including assigning imperial or metric units of measurement, using object snaps to control accuracy, and drawing and transforming basic lines and shapes. The last chapter in the course tests your newfound skills in a short project where you'll create a small mechanical part.
- Constructing lines
- Defining a unit of measure
- Locking to geometry with object snaps
- Drawing rectangles, circles, and polygons
- Applying hatch patterns
- Moving, copying, and rotating objects
- Erasing elements
- Undoing and redoing actions
(MUSIC). Hi, I'm Jeff Bartels. Welcome to the AutoCAD Essentials 02, Drawing Fundamentals. In this title, we'll take our first steps into the world of Geometric Construction. We'll start by looking at some basic drawing tools. Focusing on how they're used and what options are available. Along the way, I'll be stressing the fundamental usage of each command to ensure we're creating accurate geometry. Next we'll talk about setting and working with drawing units.
Once we're comfortable with the basic tools and our drawing environment, we'll explore some of the specialized drawing commands, designed to save us time when creating more complex shapes. Finally, we'll learn how to make modifications to our geometry. Such that we can incorporate several shapes together into a final design. At the end of the title, you'll have an opportunity to put your skills to the test by reproducing a small mechanical part using what you've learned. When you're ready, follow me and we'll get started.
