Overview of Start New Drawing
All AutoCAD drawings start from either a default drawing template file or a custom drawing template file which file that is your own design. Drawing template files store default setting styles and additional data. The designer can decide before starting the new drawing with the required units. The unit is the main factor to design the new drawing or existing drawing. The designer will be decided which type of unit to select for the design of the drawing.
In the existing drawing before choosing the drawing unit but the new drawing does not have a unit for that. So a new drawing file designer also set up the drawing unit.
Starting a New drawing file from the scratch
It starts an empty drawing using the default imperial or metric setting in this file change measurement system for a given drawing by the measurement system variable. Drawing1.dwg that file opens when you start the program is a drawing that starts from scratch.
Start a New drawing file from the imperial
It is the method of starting a new drawing based on the imperial measurement system. The default drawing boundary is 12 by 9 inches.
New drawing file from the metric
It starts a new drawing based on a metric measurement system.
Starting a New drawing file from the Tip
It displays a description of the selected measurement setting.
New drawing file the using wizard
Set up a drawing using a step-by-step guide choose from the wizards, quick setup, and advance setup.
Starting New drawing file from the quick setup
It displays the quick setup wizard in which you can specify the units and areas for the new drawing. The quick setup wizard also changes settings such as text height and snap spacing to an appropriate scale.
Advance setup for the new drawing
It displays an advanced setup wizard in which you can specify the units, angle measure, angle direction, and area for four new drawings. The advance wizard also changes settings such as text height and snap spacing to an appropriate scale.
How to create a drawing template file in AutoCAD
When we need to create several drawings using the same conventions and default settings we can save time by creating or customization the drawing template file instead of specifying the convention and the default setting each time we start drawing. Convention and settings commonly stored in the template file include.
- Unit format and precision
- Title block and boarders
- Layer name, snap, and grid spacing
- Text styles
- Dimension styles
- Multilayer styles
- Line types, line weight, layout page setup.
How to open the existing drawing in AutoCAD
All AutoCAD users can the following methods to open an existing drawing.
On the stander, toolbar= click the open tool
Type open and press enter
In files, type choose the type of file you want to open
Choose the folder containing the desired file
If the drawing required a password then enter the password click ok to verify password and then click open again.
How to set up units and scale in AutoCAD screen
First, open the AutoCAD application on the computer then choose units. The unit dialog box is open then fill up the unit set as per requirement.
Choose the linear unit type from the length type drop-down list. Choose the type of unit representation that is appropriate for the work. Engineering and architectural units are set up in feet and inches.
From the length, and precision drop-down list on the AutoCAD ribbon bar choose the level of precision we want when AutoCAD displays coordinate and linear measurement.
Choose an angular unit type from the angle type dropdown list.
From the angle, precision you can see on your AutoCAD screen where the drop-down list chooses the degree of precision which we want when AutoCAD displays for angular measurement.
In the intersection, the scale chooses the unit measurements for this drawing.
Click ok to exit the dialog box and save the setting.
AutoCAD users can specify the size of the dimensions in our drawing. Dimension scale affects the size of the dimension geometry relative to the object in the drawing. Dimension scale effect size, text height arrow size, and offsets such as extension line origin offset.
It should set all sizes and offsets of values to represent their actual size on plot paper. Dimension scale does not apply the overall scale factor to tolerance or measured lengths coordinates or angles.
How to use drafting aids in Autocad
The grid line display and snap mode drawing aid to locate points quickly and precisely.
the design of orthographic drawing using ortho mode drawing aid.
Use the UCS icon for the too-easy user interface.
Use ribbon bar to easily customization and design drawing part.
Buy using polar tracking to draw an angled object in AutoCAD.
Use basic object snaps to locate precisely relative to an existing object.
Defer object snaps to locate complex points.
Use advanced object snap to locate points using acquired point and alignment path.
Use the command bar for showing up the command when the design of the drawing.
Control dynamic input settings.
Use construction lines to increase the drawing area for the multiple designs in AutoCAD.
The drawing coordinate for simplicity for the user interfaces for finding points.
Visual style control for the three-dimensional drawing in isometric view.
The UCS icon for the too-easy user interface.
Ribbon bar to easy customization and designing drawing part.
The menu bar also.
Raster Image and Vector Image
The whole designing part of AutoCAD is based on computer graphics. The AutoCAD drawing designs in the raster image and vector image. Without computer graphics for the design of drawing cannot be possible or easy. So, computer graphics is the main part of AutoCAD design.
The central component of the raster model is the raster image which is used to display pixels on the screen and retrieve pixel values. This object is the collection of raster brands in memory and manages the arrays of pixels and their ancillary data
A vector image is a computer graphic whose shape is defined by a path. The shape and size of a vector image path are determined by points that can be plotted along with the path method.
A vector image stroke color. Follow the path and selection of the object in AutoCAD. The stroke and fill determine how the graphic looks when published in print or on the web. Vector object shapes include basic shapes auto shapes and free-form shapes. We can use a variety of tools and techniques to draw and edit vector images.
Memory or storage is a computer component technology and storing data media used to retain digital data. It is a core function and fundamental component of a computer. All the data of AutoCAD is stored in the memory part of the computer.
