• Linetype Scale
LineType Scale (use on Ex 2-15)
• Centerline dashes are too small for mm units
• Example:
  • Set up mm drawing, 240x180 limit, zoom all
  • Draw a large circle in center
  • Bring up dimension toolbar
     – Dimension Style > Modify > Symbols and Arrows
     – Choose Center Line, OK, draw center mark…look good?
  • To Fix
     –   Format>LineTypes>Show Details> Global Scale Factor = 20
     –   Go back to Dimension Style and Change Center Line Size =2
     –   Retry…should look better
     –   Change circle line property to CenterLine…should be OK too
     OSNAP—life made easy
• We have SNAP…locks cursor onto grid pts
• OSNAP locks cursor onto object parts
  – Endpoint (of line), Center (of circle), etc etc
• Turn ON: click OSNAP
• Modify: R-click OSNAP> settings
  – Check box you wish to use
  – Click Options and slider lets you set pull in range
• Better: Activate Object Snap toolbar
           OSNAP Endpoint
• Endpoint– (turn OFF Grid and Snap)
  – draw line (enter), another line, hover by end
  – click when symbol appears
  – Draw line
• Endpoint extension—
  – Start Line, hover over endpoint to lock on
  – Drag cursor away along extension…dashed line
  – Type in distance and draw line
         OSNAP Snap From
• Lets you move or resize easily
• Click on line, click on blue midpoint
  – Drag to move line, click to anchor
• Click on line, click on blue endpoint
  – Lets you move line’s endpoint
• Circle: Lets you move center or resize radius
   OSNAP Midpoint & Intersection
• Draw a circle centered at the midpoint of a line
  – OSNAP Settings, check Midpoint
  – Start circle, hover near midpoint of line, click and draw

• Draw an ellipse: Start with thisà
  – Construct rectangle, bisecting lines
  – Ellipse, click left side midpt, then
    right…bottom then top
 OSNAP – Apparent Intersection
• Draw a circle at the apparent
  Intersection of 2 lines
  – Draw the 2 lines
  – Click circle, click on snap to intersection
