1 Page 1 Introduction to AutoCAD 2010 Alf Yarwood Chapter 5 Exercise 1 1. Open AutoCAD 2010 with a double-click on its shortcut icon in the Windows desktop. 2. Call the Polyline tool, either by entering pl at the command line or with a left-click on its tool icon in the Home/ Draw panel. 3. Set Snap and Ortho on, either by pressing the keys F9 and F8 or with left-clicks on the Snap Mode and Ortho Mode buttons in the status bar.. 4. Using the method of dragging and entering the distance in unit numbers, construct the outline of the drawing before filleting. 5. Call the Fillet tool, either by entering f at the command line, or with a left-click on its tool icon in the Home/Modify panel. The command line shows: _fillet Current settings: Mode = TRIM, Radius = 0 Select first object or [Polyline/Radius/Trim/Multiple]: enter r right-click Specify fillet radius <0>: enter 10 right-click Select first object or [Undo/Polyline/Radius/Trim/ Multiple]: pick a pline Select second object or shift-select to apply corner: pick the adjacent pline right-click FILLET 6. Continue filleting each corner of the outline.

2 Page 2 7. Using the Polyline tool construct one of the long rectangular strips and one of the smaller rectangles within the left-hand end of the outline. With the Fillet tool, fillet all the corners to a radius of Call the Copy tool, either by entering cp at the command line, or with a left-click on its tool icon in the Home/Modify panel. The command line shows: _copy Select objects: pick the long strip 1 found Current settings: Copy mode = Multiple Specify base point or [Displacement/mOde] <Displacement>: pick any point on the strip Specify second point of displacement or <use first point as displacement>: pick a point for the central strip Specify second point of displacement or <use first point as displacement>: pick a point for the bottom strip Specify second point of [Exit/Undo] <Exit>: right-click right-click COPY Select objects: pick the left-hand filleted rectangle 1 found Specify base point or [Displacement/mOde] <Displacement>: pick a point on the rectangle Specify second point of displacement or <use first point as displacement>: pick a point for the position of the lower rectangle Specify second point or [Exit/Undo] <Exit>: right-click 9. Save your drawing with the file name 5_Exercise01.dwg to your floppy disk. 10. Left-click the Close button of the drawing window. Note In the answer to Exercise 1 it was not thought necessary to use the Circle and Trim tools because the Fillet tool was used to obtain the half circles at the ends of the smaller rectangles.

3 Page 3 Chapter 5 Exercise 2 2. Using the Polyline and Fillet tools construct the outer filleted rectangle for this answer. 3. Using the Circle tool, add the top left-hand circle. 4. Call the Array tool, either by entering ar at the command line or with a leftclick on its tool icon in the Home/Modify panel The Array dialog appears. Make settings in the dialog as shown: Rectangular Array - radio button clicked, Rows set to 6, Columns set to 8; Row offset - set to -30, Column offset set to Left-click the Select objects button and when the dialog closes, pick the circle. The command line shows: Pick or press Esc to return to dialog or <Right-click to accept array>: right-click if satisfied with array

8 Page 8 3. Because the dimensions of the chamfers of the rectangle are not dimensions which can be constructed using the Rectangle tool, they will have to be constructed using the Chamfer tool called from the Home/Modify panel with a left-click. Then enter the following at the command line prompts: _chamfer (TRIM mode) Current chamfer Dist1 = 0, Dist2 = 0 Select first line or [prompts]: enter d right-click Specify first chamfer distance <0>: enter 20 right-click Specify second chamfer distance <20>: enter 10 rightclick Select first line or [prompts]: pick Select second line or shift-select to apply corner: pick 4.

Chapter 5 Exercise 7 2. Construct the required drawing using the following tools: Circle, Line and Trim. The upper fillets of the drawing are best constructed as shown in the drawings 1, 2 and Using the Copy tool from the Home/Modify panel, copy the drawing twice. 4. Call the Rotate tool, either by entering ro at the command line or with a left-click on its tool icon in the Home/Modify panel.

Using the Copy tool from the Home/Modify panel, copy the drawing twice. 4. Taking the first copy, first rotate it through 300 and then scale to 0.5 of its original size. The responses to the command line prompts for both these operations are as follows: _rotate Select objects: Specify opposite corner: window the drawing 7 found Specify base point: pick centre of circles Specify rotation angle or [Copy/Reference] <0>: enter 300 right-click 5. Using the Scale tool from the Home/Modify panel, scale the rotated drawing: _scale Select objects: window the drawing Specify opposite corner: pick 7 found Specify base point: pick centre of circles Specify scale factor or [Copy/Reference] <1>: enter 0.5 right-click

10 Page Scale the second copy to a scale of twice full size. 7. Save your drawing with the file name 5_Exercise08.dwg to your floppy disk. 8. Left-click the Close button of the drawing window. Chapter 5 Exercise Construct the drawing 1 from Fig Call the Stretch tool. The command line shows: _stretch Select objects to stretch by crossing-window or crossing-polygon... Select objects: enter c (for Crossing) right-click Specify first corner: pick first point Specify opposite corner: pick second point 1 found Specify base point or [Displacement] <Displacement>: pick anywhere within the window Specify second point or <use first point as displacement>: drag until the horizontal dimensions are 175 and Now repeat the stretch vertically until the vertical dimensions are 100 and Save your drawing with the file name 5_Exercise09.dwg to your floppy disk. 6. Left-click the Close button of the drawing window. Chapter 5 Exercise Open acadiso.dwt - left-click New... in the Quick Access toolbar. 2. Before calling the Array tool from the Home/Modify panel, construct the drawing as shown with the half circle to be arrayed at the right-hand side end of the line of 10 units length. This is necessary because, as with all other operations in AutoCAD, the default direction of circular actions is anticlockwise. 3. Save your drawing with the file name 5_Exercise10.dwg to your floppy disk. 4. Left-click the Close button of the drawing window.

11 Page 11 Additional exercises 1. Construct the upper drawing of the two drawings on the left using Circle, Arc and Trim to produce the lower of the two drawings. Then, using Copy, construct the main drawing below. 2. Construct the semicircle, circles and lines as shown by the left-hand drawing using the Polyline tool to a width=1. Then, using the Mirror tool, construct the right-hand drawing from the polylines.

12 Page Construct the polyline outline and circle shown in the left-hand drawing to a width=1.5. Then array the drawing as shown in the right-hand drawing. 4. Construct the outline drawing 1.using Circle and Line tools. Trim as shown in drawing 2 and change the outline to a closed polyline of width=0.7. Form an array from the outline and add the other details as shown with plines of width= Construct the drawing as shown. 6. Construct the polyline shown in the lefthand drawing. Copy the polyline three times. First rotate each polyline then move the rotations as shown in the righthand drawing. Finish the drawing with a polyline of width=2 forming a square surrounding the arrows. Multiple choice questions 1. What is the purpose of the set variable MIRRTEXT: (a} To ensure that text is mirrored correctly (b) To enable text to be mirrored with a drawing, when the Mirror tool is in use (c) To make sure that text is deleted from drawings when acted upon by the Mirror tool (d) To show text clearly in drawings acted upon by the Mirror tool Material accompanying Introduction to AutoCAD 2010, ISBN Copyright 2009, Alf Yarwood.
