Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Trim and Extend, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2015 Essential Training.
- Next up is the trim and extend command set.…These allow me to lengthen or cut my geometry…using other geometry in my drawing.…I have two lines crossing here,…so I'm going to go over and get the trim tool here.…I'm going to select this line…as what is called my cutting edge.…This will act like a knife cutting…through my line segments.…I'll press return, and now I'm supposed…to select the object to trim.…Depending on which side of my knife edge I select…will determine which segment is removed.…
So if I click here, this segment will be removed,…or this segment.…I'm going to get back into my command…and I'm going to select these two lines up here…as my cutting edges.…I'll press return.…Now I can select this segment in here.…Because it is in between two segments,…it will be removed, leaving me two brand new…and separate segments.…The partnering tool is extend,…and it does exactly what it sounds like,…the opposite of the trim command.…
I'll find the tool here.…I'm going to select my boundary edges…here and here, and press return.…
