Join Scott Onstott for an in-depth discussion in this video Extruding and sweeping the abacus, part of AutoCAD 2013: 3D.
In this video, you will extrude the abacus which will ultimately become the …top most portion of the column and then you will sweep a profile creating a …transition between the abacus and the volutes, open the column 3 project file …and go into the top view by clicking on the view cube Rotate the plan if …necessary, and zoom into the sketch.
