All here is a déjà-vu. Last session, we’ve learned how to use the ELLIPSE command in AutoCAD, in this session we are coming back with an even easier ellipse.
BUT, but now, the focus will be made on something totally different.
in Learn-AutoCAD-DAY-6, we have worked with the ARRAY command for the first time. Today you will need that command line more than EVER. And it is compulsory to have mastered it before trying the coming exercise.
LEARNING AUTOCAD BASICS
NOTE: Element in the array are equally spaced around the ellipse.
On the following image, the red line represent the PATH of the array. It resulted of an OFFSET of 5 units from the outer ellipse.

OBJECTS IN THE ARRAY
The object in the array is nothing but the following
You can find dimension of the circles on the first image above.
The only thing that might be hard to accomplish here is the array. There is nothing like ARRAYELLIPSE in AutoCAD, what you need to do to create this array is using the ARRAYPATH.
To use the ARRAYPATH command using an ELLIPSE, you need to cut the ellipse into two, and use the ARRAYPATH on each of the side, that is it.
We would like to let you fight with it and figure it out yourself, using information we provided above.
