Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Using transparency in AutoCAD drawings, part of AutoCAD: Tips & Tricks.
- [Teacher] So here we are again…in another AutoCAD Tip and Trick from Lynda.com.…And as usual, we have a new drawing for you,…which you can download from…your Lynda.com exercise files.…And we're going to be looking at…the transparency settings that you can utilize…in AutoCAD to your advantage.…Now, as usual, it's a nice simple drawing,…so I can demonstrate the technique…without all of the constraints…of a really busy construction or mechanical drawing.…So we've got some very simple objects in our drawing.…
We've got a hexagon right here,…we've got a rectangle, and we've got a circle, like so.…Now, obviously, what I'm going to do here…is demonstrate how the transparency tools…work really well in AutoCAD…so that you can see one object that might be…underneath another object, for example.…Now you might think to yourself,…whenever would I place one object on top of another?…When you're hatching.…For example, you might put a hatch pattern…on top of a solid fill.…
So what I've done is I've created some layers…to that effect.…
