Join Dustin Manning for an in-depth discussion in this video Transparent Commands, part of AutoCAD Civil 3D: Topographic and Boundary Survey.
- [Voiceover] Now, let's take a look…at transparent commands.…Transparent commands are a little tricky…because they don't behave like other commands.…Typically, we choose a command like to draw a line…and then we just immediately start to draw a line.…But transparent commands work inside of other commands.…So, if we knew we wanted to draw a line…at a certain bearing and distance,…we would want to use a transparent command.…And so, we locate our transparent commands…over on the far right by default.…And you'll see things like, this one here…is azimuth and distance, deflection distance,…and we have all these different options…for drawing lines in specific ways.…
So, let's start by just drawing a line…running the standard line command.…Create line.…And we'll just click anywhere at this point.…And we'll go over to the toolbar…and choose bearing and distance.…So, we immediately get some more information on the screen,…so we can choose our quadrants one two three four.…So let's say we want to draw a line in the first quadrant,…
