Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Polylines, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2015 Essential Training.
- Another object type you'll be asked to use…in AutoCAD for Mac is a poly line.…This is a connected sequence of segments…which can include lines and arcs.…Poly lines are unique entities…with some special properties we can take advantage of…Poly lines can be created as a command all on their own…but are also created by some other commands…we'll look at in a moment.…Namely the rectangle and polygon tools.…Poly lines can be created…by joining separate lines and arcs as well…but we'll address that in a later video.…
For now, let's find the poly line command here…under the drafting tool palette.…We're asked to specify a starting point…so I'm gonna click right here in space.…And we can immediately see a myriad of options.…As I mentioned a second ago,…poly lines can contain lines and arcs…so I'm given the option to start with…an arc instead of the default line tool.…Change the width of the poly line…or specify the length of the line.…I'm gonna enter 4…and then tab over to the angle…and specify an angle of 30 degrees and press return.…
