The present is one of a kind. It is good to know that the objective is not only to be able to useAutoCAD commands but also to use-your-brain-cells to help combine all these commands to get to the final image.
One thing you should have in mind is that there is more than a way to get to a destination using AutoCAD, just remember to check your dimensions at the end of the exercise and make sure they match ones mentioned on the image-exercise.
We will look a little deeper into the OFFSET command today. It is needed.
OFFSET COMMAND IN AUTOCAD
The OFFSET command helps create parallel lines and parallel curves.
If you have a object and want a similar parallel object to it, this command will be helpful.
To use the OFFSET command
- Click on the OFFSET icon
- Specify the OFFSET distance and Press Enter
- Select object to OFFSET
- Specify a point on side to OFFSET
LEARNING AUTOCAD BASICS
The use of the ROTATE command will be required in this exercise, as well as the OFFSET command.
Below you will find diverse dimensions to help the replication of this session’s task.
You need to start from the outer part of the object.
After getting the above figure done, OFFSET all circles with 10 units inwards, and OFFSET all line with 15 units inwards.
And you should end up here.
All you need to use the TRIM command and the FILLET command to get all done.
