Exercise 01

Some basics about relative and absolute coordinates, turning Dynamic Input on/off, showing mouse coordinates, using polar relative coords (DYN INPUT), Offset, and Line of course.


Gate Latch Ex.10B
Use of Copy and Move, use of snap menu (quadrant)
Circles
using (centre, radius) &  (tan,tan,radius).
Offset. Fillet. Bulk Trim. Layers with centrelines.
LineTypeScale global = LTS, individual = properties

Smoking Sign Ex.31A

Use of Polyline, Variable Width, Relative Coordinate input using "@", Curve Fit

Content

  • manipulate drawing entities
  • modify dimension styles
  • create and use layers
  • manipulate the drawing origin
  • define and utilise symbol libraries
  • utilise grids/grid snaps and object snaps
  • display views at multiple scales
  • add title blocks/frame to layout a drawing for printing
  • prepare advanced drawings in plane orthogonal or equivalent
