AutoCAD Tips & Tricks of the Day

Command:EXTRIM

To see this command in action, draw a rectangle with LOTS of lines going through it. Then type EXTRIM and select the rectangle. You are then prompted to “specify the side to trim on: “. If you pick outside the box, it trims everything crossing the box around the outside and you are left with just the lines in the middle. If you select inside the box, it trims all the lines inside the rectangle and leaves the lines on the outside. Sounds a little confusing? Give it a try and it will make perfect sense.

Very cool!

PELLIPSE System Variable

If you want the ellipse command to create polylines instead of the true mathematical ellipses, set the PELLIPSE variable to 1.

EXTRIM works perfectly in CAD 2006.

share ako.

VTDURATION.

Pansin natin na sa AutoCAD 2006 pataas, pag nag zoom in ka or zoom out, may visual effect na siya. Parang na zo-zoom in or out na yung object at a certain speed. If you want AutoCAD's zoom function to work just like in AutoCAD 2005 and lower versions just type:

VTDURATION
change the default value to Zero.

AutoCAD Tip/Trick of the Day - Feb 21 2009

Post by oRangE.n.GreeN on Sat Feb 21, 2009 4:08 am

.



When you insert an image, it has a frame around it so you can select it. When you go to plot your drawing, if you do not want to see the frame, simply type the command “IMAGEFRAME” to set its visibility as follows:

Setting 0 - Image frames are NOT displayed and NOT plotted

Setting 1 - Image frames are BOTH displayed and plotted (default).

Setting 2 - Image frames are displayed but NOT plotted

share din ako...

"SNAPANG"
- puwedeng i-rotate ang alignment ng cursor sa desired angle, use with ortho on
- kung ibabalik i-type lang "0" degree rotation...

...anyone using dynamic blocks here? or customizing LISP routines?...

I always use this...very useful specially for image re-tracing

AutoCAD Tip/Trick of the Day - Feb 22 2009

Post by oRangE.n.GreeN on Sat Feb 21, 2009 10:22 pm

.

Command: OVERKILL


My theory is that programmers at Autodesk in charge of the Express Tools might be spending late hours of intense gaming. How else could they end up with a command called OVERKILL?!! and how about having a setting called “Numeric Fuzz”??? what the ****! Very Happy

OVERKILL is actually a pretty awesome tool for cleaning up a drawing. It’s one of the Express Tools, although you won’t see it listed by that name in the pull-down menus. It’s found by selecting “Express Tools” then “Modify” and then “delete duplicate objects”. The purpose of OVERKILL is to find duplicate and overlapping objects and combine them into one nice, neat object.

In the dialogue box you can control if it ignores objects with different properties. And then there’s Numeric Fuzz. What kind of name is that? Numeric Fuzz controls how wild and crazy the command reacts. If set to “0″, the objects must match exactly before one of them gets modified or deleted.

For example: two circles lie almost directly on top of each other; the radius of one circle is 0.00001 smaller than the other one. If the fuzz value is set to “0″, OVERKILL considers the two circles to be unique and does not modify or delete either of them. However, if the fuzz value is set to 0.00001 or higher, OVERKILL considers the circles to be equal and deletes one of them.

Give it a try. Start by randomly drawing some overlapping objects and watch the command “Kill” them. It’s pretty cool. Once you have a feel for how it works, use it on some drawings that need some cleaning up. It’s also a great way to join different lines that butt together or to remove a bunch of individual segments from a straight line PLINE.

So get “jacked-up” on coffee or Red Bull, crank up the music and start doing some OVERKILL-ing!

Question lng po sir oRangE.n.GreeN.... Sometimes kasi, layers or objects overlaying with each other are on different layers. When using overkill can I specify which layer is to be deleted and which layer is to keep? scratch
