Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video REVCLOUD, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2016 New Features.
- Revisions are unfortunately a fact of CAD life,…as no design is ever perfect the first time around.…Eventually, something is corrected or even just changed…and these alterations need to be marked and tracked.…We mark the geometry changes…with a tool called the Revision Cloud.…The tool previously allowed you to draw…a free-hand shape around the effected geometry…and then choose the size of the arcs.…Now, we can use more standard shapes,…like rectangular or polygonal,…or even use an existing shape that we created ourselves.…
I'm going to draw a rectangle…around the dining area, here.…Under the Annotation Tool Set,…we'll find REVCLOUD here.…I'll go ahead and select the tool…and in the command prompt we can see…all the options that we have, including,…selecting an existing closed Polyline, Spline or Circle.…I'm going to type in R for Rectangular…and draw an additional shape here, around the kitchen.…
Those arcs are a little large for my taste,…so I'm going to modify them before I move on…and create my next Revision Cloud.…
