Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Matching an image, part of AutoCAD Raster Design Essential Training.
- Suppose you have an image you need scaled and rotated…to match some existing geometry.…Yeah, we can do that.…This works on CAD lines or of course…other images as well.…The objective of this video is to match a raster image…with some corresponding linework.…So let's get started by jumping into AutoCAD…and let's go over to our big, giant Start Drawing box…and click it.…On the Insert and Write tab…let's go ahead and click Insert.…I'm going to grab Architectural First Floor.…We'll keep the Insertion Wizard on,…and we'll click open.…
We'll click next through the defaults.…And let's click Finish.…Let's zoom into this area right here.…Notice a couple of things.…One, it's a little bit skewed.…Number two is…I don't know if that's accurate or not.…So let's type the word d-i-s-t and hit enter.…Let's come over to our Snaps.…And let's make sure Raster Snap is turned on.…Now I want to zoom in to this area here.…Now I want to pick a point right in the middle right here.…
Now I want to come all the way down to here.…I want to turn my ortho on by hitting F8.…
