1 Introduction to Polylines and Multilines Chapter 15 Sacramento City College EDT 310 Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 1

2 Polylines Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 2

3 Polylines The term polyline is composed of the words "poly" and "line." Poly means many. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 3

4 Polylines A polyline is A single object that can be Made up of one or more varied-width line segments. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 4

5 The PLINE Command Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 5

6 Polylines Polylines are drawn with the PLINE command. The TRACE command, is similar to the PLINE command. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 6

7 Polylines Polylines advantages over normal lines: 1. Polylines can be drawn as thick or tapered lines. 2. Polylines are more flexible than lines drawn with the TRACE command. 3. Polylines can be any linetype. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 7

8 Polylines 4. Polylines can be edited. 5. Closed polygons can be drawn. 6. The area or perimeter of a polyline object can be determined easily. 7. Arcs and straight lines of varying thickness can be joined as single objects. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 8

9 Polylines The PLINE command is similar to the LINE command. PLINE has more options. All segments of a polyline are treated as a single object. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 9

10 Polylines To draw a polyline, Pick the Polyline button from the Draw toolbar OR Pick Polyline from the Draw pull-down menu OR Type PL or PLINE at the Command: prompt: Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 10

11 Polylines Command: PL or PLINE Specify start point: (select a point) Current line-width is Specify next point or [Arc/Close/Halfwidth/Length/Undo/Width]: (select the next point) Press [Enter] to end the PLINE command and return to the Command: prompt. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 11

12 Polylines A line width of produces a line of minimum width. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 12

13 Setting the Polyline Width Use the Width option after you enter the PLINE command to change the line width, and select the first point. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 13

14 Polyline Options Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 14

15 Polyline Options Polyline Options Width Halfwidth Length Undo Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 15

16 Setting the Polyline Width Width option Specify the starting and ending widths of the line. The starting width value that you specify becomes the default setting for the ending width. To keep the line the same width, press [Enter] at the second prompt. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 16

17 Setting the Polyline Width If a tapered line is desired, enter different values for the starting and ending widths. Width = Width = Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 17

18 Halfwidth Option Halfwidth option Allows you to specify the width of the polyline from the center to one side. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 18

19 Length Option Length option Allows you to draw another polyline having the same angle as the previous polyline. After drawing a polyline: Reissue the PLINE command Pick a starting point. Enter the Length option Give the desired length. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 19

20 Undoing Previously Drawn Polylines Undo option Use while inside the PLINE command Erases the last polyline segment drawn. Enter U at the prompt line and then press [Enter] Each time you use the Undo option, another polyline segment is erased. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 20

21 Undoing Previously Drawn Polylines The cursor remains attached to the end of the polyline segment that was drawn before the undone segment. You can now continue to draw additional polyline segments OR Type U and press [Enter] again to undo another segment. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 21

22 Undoing Previously Drawn Polylines You can use the Undo option to remove all of the polyline segments up to the first point of the polyline. The segments are removed in reverse order (from the order in which they were drawn). Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 22

23 The U Command Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 23

24 The U Command The U command works in much the same way. The U Command is not the Undo option of the PLINE command. The U command can be used to undo any previous commands. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 24

25 The U Command To execute the U command: Pick the Undo button from the Standard toolbar OR Pick Undo from the Edit pull-down menu OR Pressing the [Ctrl]+[Z] key combination OR Enter U at the Command: prompt. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 25

26 The U Command The U command can also be activated by: Right-clicking in the drawing area. Selecting Undo from the shortcut menu. AutoCAD gives you a message indicating which command was undone: Command: U PLINE Command: Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 26

27 The U Command You can only undo one command at a time. Repeated UNDO s can be executed. The UNDO command, Has more options than the U command Is more versatile than the U command. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 27

28 The REDO Command Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 28

29 The REDO Command The REDO command is used to bring back objects that were erased with the UNDO and U commands. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 29

30 The REDO Command Enter REDO at the Command: prompt OR Pick Redo from the Edit pull-down menu OR Press the [Ctrl]+[Y] key combination OR Pick the Redo button from the Standard toolbar to activate the command. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 30

31 The UNDO Mark The REDO command works only immediately after undoing something. REDO does not bring back polyline segments that were removed using the Undo option of the PLINE command. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 31

32 The TRACE Command Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 32

33 The TRACE Command To draw wide lines, the TRACE command can be used instead of the PLINE command. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 33

34 The TRACE Command To use the TRACE command: Enter TRACE at the Command: prompt. Specify the trace width. Select points as you would with the LINE command. The trace width is stored in the TRACEWID system variable. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 34

35 The TRACE Command Command: TRACE Specify trace width <current>: (enter width) Specify start point: (select start point) Specify next point: (select second point) Specify next point: (select additional points or press [Enter] to complete) Command: Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 35

36 The TRACE Command The problems with TRACE are The previous trace segment is not drawn on screen until the next endpoint is specified. There is no close option with the TRACE command. Trace segment ends are mitered to fit the next segment. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 36

37 Filling Polylines and Traces The FILL Command Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 37

38 The FILL Command Traces and polylines can be Filled in, or Shown as an outline. These functions are controlled by the FILL command. The FILL command has two modes, ON and OFF. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 38

39 The FILL Command Command: FILL Enter mode [ON/OFF] <current>: When the FILL mode is turned on, traces and polyhnes appear filled after they are drawn. When FILL is off, traces and polylines appear as outlines, and the comers are mitered. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 39

40 The FILL Command After turning FILL off, REGEN to have the fill removed. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 40

41 The FILL Command The FILL mode can also be set in the Apply solid fill check box in the Options dialog box. Select Tools, Options, Display. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 41

42 The FILL Command If you have many wide polylines or traces in a drawing, keep FILL mode turned off. This saves time when redrawing, regenerating, or plotting a check copy of the drawing. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 42

43 The UNDO Command Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 43

44 The UNDO Command The UNDO command is different from the U command. The UNDO command offers several options that allow you to undo a single command or a number of commands at once. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 44

45 The UNDO Command The command sequence is as follows: Command: UNDO Enter the number of operations to undo or [Auto/Control/BEgin/End/Mark/Back]: Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 45

46 The UNDO Command The default option allows you to designate the number of previous command sequences you wish to remove. If you enter 1, the previous command sequence is removed. If you enter 2, the previous two command sequences are removed. AutoCAD tells you which commands were undone with a message after you press [Enter]. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 46

47 The UNDO Command Command: UNDO Enter the number of operations to undo or [Auto/Control/BEgin/End/Mark/Back]: 2 PLINE LINE Command: Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 47

48 The UNDO Command There are several other types of undo operations that can be performed with the UNDO command. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 48

49 The UNDO Command - Auto Option The Auto option can be turned on or off. When Auto option is on, any commands that are part of a group and used to perform a single operation are removed together. When a command contains other commands, all of the commands in that group are removed as one single command. The Auto option is on by default. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 49

50 The UNDO Command - Auto Option If Auto is turned off, each command in a group of commands is treated individually. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 50

51 The UNDO Command - Control Option The Control option allows you to specify how many of the UNDO command options you want active. You can even disable the UNDO command altogether. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 51

52 The UNDO Command - Control Option To use the Control option: Enter C after issuing the UNDO command: Enter the number of operations to undo or [Auto/Control/BEgin/End/Mark/Back]: C Enter an UNDO control option [All/None/One] <All>: (enter a control option and press [Enter]) Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 52

53 The UNDO Command - All Option The All suboption keeps the full range of UNDO command options active. All is the default setting. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 53

54 The UNDO Command - None Option The None suboption disables the U and UNDO commands. When disabled, and the U command is entered, the following prompt appears: Command: U U command disabled. Use UNDO command to turn it on This prompt indicates how to reactivate the U and UNDO commands. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 54

55 The UNDO Command - Auto Option If you type UNDO at the Command: prompt, the following appears: Command: UNDO Enter an UNDO control option [All/None/One] <All>: To activate the UNDO options, press [Enter] for All. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 55

56 The UNDO Command - One Option Enter 0 for the One suboption. This setting limits UNDO to one operation only. Command: UNDO Control/<l>: -i LINE Everything has been undone Command: Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 56

57 The Auto Option Type C at the Control/<l>: prompt to redisplay the Control suboptions. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 57

58 The Begin and End Options The BEgin and End options of the UNDO command are used together to perform several undo operations at once. They allow you to group a series of commands and treat the entire group as a single command. Once the group is defined, the U command is then used to remove the commands that follow the BEgin option but precede the End option. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 58

59 The Begin and End Options These options are useful if you can anticipate the possible removal of several commands that are entered consecutively. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 59

60 The Begin and End Options For example, to undo the next three commands: Command: UNDO Enter the number of operations to undo or [Auto/Control/BEgin/End/Mark/Back]: BE Command: L or LINE Command: PL or PLINEJ Command: L or LINE-I Command: UNDO Enter the number of operations to undo or [Auto/Control/BEgin/End/Mark/Back]: EJ Command: U Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 60

61 The Begin and End Options The U command undoes the three commands that were executed in the previous sequence. The BEgin option must precede the command sequence The End option must immediately follow the last command to be undone. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 61

62 The UNDO Mark The UNDO Mark option allows you to insert a "marker" in the undo file. The UNDO Back option then enables you to delete commands "back" to the marker. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 62

63 The UNDO Mark If you do not want certain work to be undone by the Back option, enter the Mark option after completing the work: Command: UNDO Enter the number of operations to undo or [Auto/Control/BEgin/End/Mark/Back]: Mj Command: Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 63

64 The UNDO Mark If you decide to remove any work, reissue the UNDO command and enter the Back option. This will undo everything back to the marker: Command: UNDO Enter the number of operations to undo or (Auto/Control/BEgin/End/Mark/Back]: B Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 64

65 The UNDO Mark If no marks have been entered, this undoes everything in the entire drawing! AutoCAD questions your choice with the following message: This will undo everything. OK? <Y>: Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 65

66 The UNDO Mark If you want everything that you have drawn and edited to be undone, press [Enter]. If not, enter N or NO and press [Enter], or press the [Esc] key. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 66

67 The UNDO Mark CAUTION Be very careful when using the UNDO Back option. Entering this option undoes everything in the entire drawing. You can bring back what you have undone if you type REDO at the Command: prompt and press [Enter] immediately after using the UNDO Back option. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 67

68 The UNDO Mark If you use any other command, even REDRAW, after using UNDO Back, the drawing is lost forever! Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 68

69 The UNDO Mark The REDO command can be used to restore commands removed with UNDO. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 69

70 The UNDO Mark The UNDO Mark option can be used to assist in the design process. If you are working on a project and have completed a portion of the design, mark that spot with the Mark option and then begin work on the next design phase. If anything goes wrong with this part of the design, use the UNDO Back option to remove everything back to the mark. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 70

71 Multilines Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 71

72 Drawing Multilines A multiline consists of between 1 and 16 parallel lines that act as one line. The lines in the set of multilines are called elements. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 72

73 Drawing Multilines Multilines are commonly used for drawing Roads Walls of buildings for architectural plans. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 73

74 Drawing Multilines The MLINE command is accessed by: Picking the Multiline button from the Draw toolbar OR Picking Multiline in the Draw pull-down menu OR Typing ML or MLINE at the Command: prompt. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 74

75 Drawing Multilines Three commands relate to multilines: MLINE. (ML) MLSTYLE. MLEDIT. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 75

76 Drawing Multilines The MLSTYLE command Allows you to create multilines. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 76

77 Drawing Multilines The default multi-line style has: Two elements (lines). Continuous line type. Is called STANDARD. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 77

78 Multiline Justification Justification determines how the resulting lines are offset. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 78

79 Multiline Justification Justification Can be specified only once during a single MLINE command sequence and Is based on a counterclockwise rotation direction. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 79

80 Multiline Justification The justification options are Top Zero Bottom TOP is the default The current value remains in effect until changed. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 80

81 Top Justification Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 81

82 Zero Justification Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 82

83 Bottom Justification Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 83

84 Multiline Justification To change the justification Enter J at the first prompt Enter the first letter of the desired justification Top Zero Bottom Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 84

85 Multiline Justification The justification setting is stored in the AutoCAD CMLJUST system variable. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 85

86 Adjusting the Multiline Scale The Scale option controls the multiplier for the offset values specified in the MLSTYLE command. The multiplier is stored in the CMLSCALE system variable. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 86

87 Adjusting the Multiline Scale When the scale is 1, the distance between multiline elements is equal to 1 times the offset distance. If the offset distance is 0.5, the distance between multiline elements is 0.5 when the multiline scale is 1. If the multiline scale is 2, the distance between multiline elements is 1 (0.5 x 2). Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 87

88 Adjusting the Multiline Scale For zero justification, The multiline elements are offset 0.5 units on either side of the definition points picked. Example: If the multiline scale is 2 Top and Bottom justification = 2 units offset Zero justification = 1 unit and -1 unit offset. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 88

89 Setting Your Own Multiline Style ML Command Style option Allows you to specify the current multiline style. The style must be saved before it can be accessed. Chapter 15 - Introduction to Polylines and Multilines 89

90 Setting Your Own Multiline Style Using saved Multiline styles Type: ML Type: ST - to access the style option, Type the known multiline style name.
