Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding linetypes, part of AutoCAD: Express Tools Workflow.
- [Instructor] Last but not least…in this tools chapter in the AutoCAD express tools workflow,…is the ability to create new line types,…and add them to the line type settings in AutoCAD.…So I'm staying in the 08_Tools.dwg file,…and what I'm going to do now…is just draw a line with some dashes and some spaces.…So I'm going to go to the home tab on the ribbon,…click on the Line command,…and I'm just going to randomly draw some lines here.…So there's a line there.…Right click and instafinish,…and then I'm going to put a little circle.…
Center Radius.…I'm going to hover there like that,…and just drag that across Center Radius…and put that there.…And then what I'm going to do,…is I'm going to mirror that to the other side of the circle.…So we go to the mirror command, like so.…Select the line, right click,…and the first point of the mirror line,…shift and right click will be Quadrant.…Go down like that, drag it down vertically.…Click again, erase source content?…No.…So there's my line circle line.…I then go to the Express Tools tab on the ribbon.…
