Define Autocad

Autocad is a software program that designs and shape 2-D and 3-D images.  It provides the tools a detail design of how the product could be done. It also gives the choice to create detailed design layout, which can be automatically drawn.

Uses of Autocad

Autocad is used by professionals to look into the imaginary view of the product on a computer system. In Autocad, the drafter can make the changes in the product before it gets finalized for design. It also provides the freedom for the designer to apply their various ideas and represent a model to their clients.

What are the fields maximum usage of Autocad can be seen?

Autocad is used by engineers, architects and builders for developing their layouts for buildings.

What file format is used in design?

The .dwg file format is used for design, it is an interchangeable format.  The interchangeable file format has the extension as DXF and operates data operability. It gives different languages which can be used as required.

How to create a user interface in Autocad?

User interface can be developed by using command prompts to draw the plots and dialog boxes. The dialog boxes could be displayed by the use of PLOT command and the external database commands. The user interface creation also requires the command line to display the entire file so that it could be edited or customized easily.

Mention the function of vertical integration

To improve the architectural designing of 3D object, Autocad uses this program. The 3D objects include walls and other things that are associated with the data having information and even simple objects like lines and circles. The data can be modified as per further requirement.

How is variant used in Autocad?

Variants are used to help in creation, visualisation and to render the 3D models that include 3D printing as well.  Variants help you to use the functionality of different application as per the requirement.

What are the benefits Autocad?

Autocad replaced the conventional method of drafting and designing which was done by pencil, drafting boards, triangles and compass with only a set of a computer program.  The benefits are many :

  • Time saving and helps to enhance productivity
  • Can streamline your design and workflow of your documentation
  • Physical ‘3D’ prototype can be fast created
  • 3D models can be directly imported into Autocad by the help of application like SolidWorks

How to draw a line more than once and save it automatically?

When you have to draw a new line, the system opens up a new file in a new session to write the file. Autocad saves multiple drawing for each session. The files are then saved by using the file extension .dwg and can be modified later by using the browser.

How to enable drag and drop feature in Autocad?

Autocad feature “NOUN” and “VERB” in a dialog box helps you with drag and drop.  It helps the object to move from one place to another.  Similarly, the remove or edit function can be done by the use of “MOVE and ERASE”.

Name the features corrected by Autocad?

Autocad detects the problem and correct it by removing the problem with the drawing parts.  With the option of adding additional vertices, it also adds vertices to the poly-lines. The error can be edited by finding out the exact location of the poly-line with zero vertices.  The object can be later deleted or removed when there is no use of it in the system.

How to set up a default drawing directory?

The applications, which are to be used, are highlighted, and by the drag and drop features those application will be placed in a default directory. Then select the properties for the application from the main menu and dialog boxes that gets displayed on the front.

How you can copy a closed drawing?

This can be done by the designer center in the Autocad toolbar.  Use the tree view option to see the copy of closed drawing and if any modification required, it can be done by using graphical interface.

How to hide specific layers when plotting in Autocad?

There are various options like turning off the layers for plotting , to freeze the layers and turn off. Turning off will make the layers visible on screen but disable printing option. The layers which are turned off will hide the layers and also will not be seen on screen.

How to copy dimension styles from one drawing to another in Autocad?

To copy dimension styles you need to set up the particular dimension style and for that a new document has to be created. After that, this document will be saved as a drawing template. A new reference is then created by a new drawing template document and it will show all the options like layer style, units and blocks.

Drawings can be done by looking at the present drawing and dimension style will be same as the original picture. So with the help of the design center, Autocad tools helps to copy the dimension styles from one drawing to another.

We conclude now.There are a few more important questions and answers related to the subject we discussed today. We shall cover them in our following blog. So keep a watch into this space for our upcoming blogs.
