- Let's start hacking this thing up.…The first hack we will do is called a mask.…What this dos is basically isolates an area…within a defined boundary.…That defined boundary is not just for the image you select,…but for every image in your drawing.…Once complete, it will leave a bounding region.…This region only masks the images.…It doesn't delete them unless you tell it to.…What I want to do here is insert an image.…Once I do that we'll create a mask…and isolate the area you define.…We'll make modifications to the masked region…and we'll actually turn that into a clipping region.…
So let's jump into AutoCAD, get started,…let's click Start Drawing.…on the Insert and Write tab let's click insert.…I'm going to grab Architectural First Floor,…Insertion Wizard, Zoom to Images,…and click Open.…Click Next,…and then Next,…and then Finish.…Now what I want to do is select this image.…Type C-O and hit enter.…I want to physically make a copy of it.…I want to pick a base point here,…and I want to copy it up to about here.…
And I'm going to hit escape a few times.…
