Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Other basic 2D geometry, part of Learning AutoCAD for Mac.
…Not every object we want to draw is made entirely of straight lines, and not…everything is made of straight lines needs to be drawn one line segment at a time.…AutoCAD has many other tools to get your geometry drawn quickly and accurately.…Let's start with the basic circle.…I'll go to the drafting tool palette and find the circle button.…The default, as seen here, is center radius.…This means I will click where I want the center of my circle to be and…then enter the radius, and AutoCAD will create my circle.…There are a lot of options for creating…a circle, however, based on the information you have.…
What if you have the diameter of your circle, and…it's something not easily split in half for a radius?…I have two options here, I can either go back to the circle button…and if I notice, there is a small arrow in the lower right corner.…This means there are more associated buttons nested within the button.…To access them I'll click and hold on the button and we can…see all the tools to draw circles based on the information you have.…
