1-2AutoCAD 2007 TutorialCopyrightedMaterialIntroductionLearning to use a CAD system is similar to learning a new language. It is necessary tobegin with the basic alphabet and learn how to use it correctly and effectively throughpractice. This will require learning some new concepts and skills as well as learning adifferent vocabulary. All CAD systems create designs using basic geometric entities.Many of the constructions used in technical designs are based upon two-dimensionalplanar geometry. The method and number of operations that are required to accomplishthe constructions are different from one system to another.In order to become effective in using a CAD system, we must learn to create geometricentities quickly and accurately. In learning to use a CAD system, lines and circles arethe first two, and perhaps the most important two, geometric entities that one shouldmaster the skills of creating and modifying. Straight lines and circles are used in almostall technical designs. In examining the different types of planar geometric entities, theimportance of lines and circles becomes obvious. Triangles and polygons are planarfigures bounded by straight lines. Ellipses and splines can be constructed by connectingarcs with different radii. As one gains some experience in creating lines and circles,similar procedures can be applied to create other geometric entities. In this chapter,the different ways of creating lines and circles in AutoCAD 2007 are examined.CopyrightedMaterialStarting Up AutoCAD 20071. Select the AutoCAD 2007 option on the Program menu or select theAutoCAD 2007 icon on the Desktop. Once the program is loaded intomemory, the AutoCAD 2007 drawing screen will appear on the screen.CopyrightedMaterialCopyrightedMaterial
AutoCAD Fundamentals1-3CopyrightedMaterial2. Choose AutoCAD Classic as the initialworkspace.3. Select Don’t Show me this again and click OKto continue. Note that AutoCAD automatically assigns generic name, Drawing X, as newdrawings are created. In our example, AutoCAD opened the graphics windowusing the default system units and assigned the drawing name Drawing1.CopyrightedMaterialCopyrightedMaterial4. Close the Tool Palettes by clicking once onClose button located at the upper right cornerof the window as shown.CopyrightedMaterial5. Close the Sheet Set Manager by clicking onceon the Close button located at the upper rightcorner of the window as shown.
1-4AutoCAD 2007 TutorialCopyrightedMaterialDrawing Units SetupEvery object we construct in a CAD system is measured in units. We should determinethe value of the units within the CAD system before creating the first geometric entities.1. In the pull-down menus, select:[Format] [Units]CopyrightedMaterial2. In the Drawing Units dialog box, set the Length Type to Decimal. This will setthe measurement to the default English units, inches.CopyrightedMaterialCopyrightedMaterial3. Set the Precision to two digits after the decimal point as shown in the abovefigure.4. Pick OK to exit the Drawing Units dialog box.
AutoCAD Fundamentals1-5CopyrightedMaterialDrawing Area SetupNext, we will set up the Drawing Limits; setting the Drawing Limits controls theextents of the display of the grid. It also serves as a visual reference that marks theworking area. It can also be used to prevent construction outside the grid limits and as aplot option that defines an area to be plotted/printed. Note that this setting does not limitthe region for geometry construction.1. In the pull-down menus, select:[Format] [Drawing Limits]CopyrightedMaterial2. In the command prompt area, near the bottom of the AutoCAD drawingscreen, the message “Reset Model Space Limits: Specify lower left corner or[On/Off] 0.00,0.00 :” is displayed. Press the ENTER key once to accept thedefault coordinates 0.00,0.00 .CopyrightedMaterial3. In the command prompt area, the message “Specify upper right corner 0.00,0.00 :” is displayed. Press the ENTER key once to accept the defaultcoordinates 12.00,9.00 .CopyrightedMaterial4. On your own, move the graphic cursor near the upper-right comer insidethe drawing area and note that the drawing area is unchanged. (The DrawingLimits command is used to set the drawing area; but the display will not beadjusted until a display command is used.)
1-6AutoCAD 2007 TutorialCopyrightedMaterial5. In the pull-down menus, select:[View] [Zoom] [All] The Zoom All command will adjustthe display so that all objects in thedrawing are displayed to be as large aspossible. If no objects are constructed,the Drawing Limits are used to adjustthe current viewport.6. Move the graphic cursor near the upperright comer inside the drawing area andnote that the display area is updated.CopyrightedMaterialUsing the Line Command1. Click on the Info Palette option in the Helppull-down menu to activate the Quick Helpoption.CopyrightedMaterial2. Move the graphics cursor to the first icon in the Draw toolbar.This icon is the Line icon. A help-tip box appears next to thecursor and a brief description of the icon is displayed at thebottom of the AutoCAD drawing screen: “Creates Straightline segments: LINE.”3. Select the icon by clicking once with the left-mouse-button,which will activate the Line command. Notice a brief explanation of the selectedcommand is displayed in the Info Palettewindow. It is highly recommended that you readthe explanations to gain some insights on thegeneral procedure of using AutoCAD .CopyrightedMaterial4. In the Info Palette window, click To drawlines to open the AutoCAD Help window andget a more detailed explanation on the procedure.
AutoCAD Fundamentals1-7CopyrightedMaterial The general procedure to create a linein AutoCAD is displayed in the InfoPalette window.5. Click on Close button located at theupper left corner of the Info Palettewindow as shown.CopyrightedMaterial6. In the command prompt area, near the bottom of the AutoCAD drawing screen,the message “ line Specify first point:” is displayed. AutoCAD expects us toidentify the starting location of a straight line. Move the graphics cursor insidethe graphics window and watch the display of the coordinates of the graphicscursor at the bottom of the AutoCAD drawing screen. The three numbersrepresent the location of the cursor in the X, Y, and Z directions. We can treatthe graphics window as if it was a piece of paper and we are using the graphicscursor as if it were a pencil with which to draw.CopyrightedMaterialCoordinates of the locationof the graphics cursor.53CopyrightedMaterial21 We will create a freehand sketch of a fivepoint star using the Line command. Do notbe overly concerned with the actual size orthe accuracy of your freehand sketch. Thisexercise is to give you a feel for theAutoCAD 2007 user interface.4
