How to control the object snap behavior associated with hatch patterns and extension lines in AutoCAD

Lynn Allen, presents this exclusive cad video that demonstrates how to control the object snap behavior when it connects to hatch patterns and extension lines in AutoCAD.

Have you ever tried to grab the endpoint of an extension line instead of the anticipated object, or grab the seperate objects in a crosshatch pattern, then this AutoCAD video tutorial is ideal for you.

To install custom hatch patterns into AutoCAD, follow the steps, given below.

Copy your hatch pattern PAT file(s) into the default Support folder that AutoCAD employs to locate hatch patterns. The default path is mentioned in the Support File Search Path list under the Files tab in Options. It is normally the first one displayed. It is the one that goes to your user folder.

Watch the following youtube video for getting more information.

How to create a 3D trash can model in AutoCAD

Musafu Cad comes with another informative autocad tutorial. In this tutorial, you will learn the tips to create the design of a trush can (garbage basket) in 3D with autocad. The tutorial is designed for beginner’s autocad users.

 

The dimension in the rendered image can be provided with texture editor. You need to click at left part (where TEXTURE EDITOR is inscribed). Subsequently, you have to edit sample size value or Offset.

 

The similar process should be followed with MATERIALS EDITOR. If you enquire about render size, you can perform that in Render presets manager, just type RENDERPRESETS.

 

To get online demonstration of the process, go through the following video.

How to create an object in 3D from the 2d drawing

From this autocad tutorial, one can learn how to create a 3d model out of a 2D drawing.

With the help of circle command available in draw panel of home tab, produce some circles. Ensure circle having radius 2.5 units retains its center on the perimeter of the circle with radius 26 units.

 Choose polar array from the modify panel available in home tab and opt for two small circles on the top of the geometry. Now, define the center of the largest circle like the center of the array and enter 4 in the number of items field. An array will be produced as follow :-

Remove the largest circle and choose FILLET command, now provide R on the command section and as fillet radius give 7. Now, use this fillet at the junctures of the circle with R2.5 and R22.5 as illustrated below :-

Trim all the geometries so that it appears as follow :-

Write J on the command box and press enter then choose the entire geometry and further press enter to combine all outer 2D segments into a single unit. If it is required, iterate the JOIN command various times to connect the geometry entirely.

Transform view to southwest isometric and visual style to Shaded from Views and Visual styles panel of Visualize tab.

Write PRESSPULL on the command box and click at a location within the geometry, ensure you are clicking within the geometry and not on the geometry. Provide the height of 3 units on the command box and press Enter.

This command will include the density of 3 units to the 2D geometry that is already created and your drawing will appear as the image illustrated above.

Generate a circle of R17 on the top of the object that was formed in earlier step, but for producing a circle on top plane you have to ensure that dynamic UCS is turned on by pressing F6. Afterward, choose circle command and shift the cursor to the top plane and click at the center of geometry for circle’s center and put a radius of 17 units and press Enter further.

Some useful cad tips to generate a door dynamic block in AutoCAD

This autocad video tutorial is associated with AutoCAD dynamic block course. By watching the video, one can learn the process in detail to generate a door dynamic block with Flip, Align, Distance and other parameters. It will facilitate the block to be utilized in different circumstances.

 

A dynamic block refers to a block definition that comprises of rules, or parameters necessary for modifying the appearance of the block reference when it is included in the drawing.

 

With dynamic blocks, it is possible to add one block that can adjust shape, size, or configuration rather than adding one of many static block definitions.

 

You author dynamic blocks with either constraint parameters or action parameters.

How to create command aliases for full length command in AutoCAD 2000

Join Lynn has presented an exclusive video tutorial where he briefly explains the simple method to create Command aliases, shortened versions of the full-length commands.

By customizing the commands you can work according to your choices. These commands are compatible with AutoCAD 2000.

Command Alias Editor. In command alias, create a new command alias. Suppose, you want to change copy command and change it to BB. You have to ensure that there is no command in AutoCAD or Normal AutoCAD for BB. Now, if you put BB command in command section and press enter, it will activate the copy command as same.à Tools -àTo do this, you have to go to Express Tools –

How to use TrussCAD, a autocad based program, to draw roof truss section detail

In this autocad tutorial, you will learn how to create the drawing of a roof truss section detail with the use of AutoCAD. You will also learn how section detail can be produced with lines, polylines, and hatches.

The tutorial is created with TrussCAD, an exclusive plugin program for AutoCAD.

It can be used to sketch timber roof and floor trusses in your AutoCAD drawings together with roof battens and roof tiles rapidly and save significant time.

The created lines can be entirely edited in AutoCAD if necessary. Trusses are formed on the basis of the user input and can be edited like standard AutoCAD lines and polylines. All colors of the line work can be modified to fit your office standards. With TrussCAD, it is possible to arrange roof battens on the Roof trusses for both Tiled and Sheet roofs.

The roof battens for tiled roofs also produce the roof tiles.

It supports full versions of AutoCAD 2000 and higher.

To download the software, click on the following link thirdistudio.com.au/TrussCAD

The files which are used in this tutorial can be downloaded from the following linkwww.thirdistudio.com.au

Functionality of annotative dimensions lines in AutoCAD

This is an exclusive autocad tutorial video that teaches you how to add annotative dimension lines in an autocad drawing.

The annotative dimension lines are ideal while going to print a drawing with viewports in various scales.

Fundamentally, the sizes to be edited in the dimension style manager, is same as that will be provided in the paper while printing.

With dimension style manager, it is possible to generate new styles, arrange the existing style, rectify styles, set overrides on the existing style, and compares styles.

A dimension style belongs to a named collection of dimension settings that manages the look of dimensions like arrowhead style, text location, and lateral tolerances.

The objective of dimension styles is to indicate the format of dimensions instantly, and to make sure that dimensions comply with industry or project standards.

The video focuses on the following topics :-

-Edit annotative dimensions
-Produce a special layer for dimension lines (command DIMLAYER)
-Draw annotative dimension lines -scale 1:100 -scale 1:30
-Display and hide annotation objects

To get more details, watch the following video.
