Drawing in architectural units

In the event you are creating a drawing using architectural measurements, it's important to know that AutoCAD requires those dimensions to be entered a specific way. In this lesson, we're going to learn how to construct geometry using architectural measurements. On my screen I have a drawing that represents a floor plan. This file is set up using the typical units and settings common to architectural work. We'll verify that. To do that, I'll open the application menu, I'll come down to Drawing Utilities, and I'll select Units. As you can see, my units are set to inches and my length type is set to Architectural so my measurements will be reported using fractional units. Let's close this.

Since this drawing is set up to be an architectural drawing, we can construct our geometry using feet and inches. Let's take a look at how it works. I'm going to zoom in on this pair of offices. I'll center this onscreen. I would like to recreate the geometry of this desk...
