Chapter 10. Basic Object Editing > Duplicating Objects

Duplicating Objects

Depending on the specific command you use, you can create exact duplicates using the COPY, OFFSET, MIRROR, and ARRAY commands—and even the Clipboard—to make copies of selected objects.

Copying Objects

With the COPY command, you can make exact duplicates of selected objects. After you select the objects to be copied, you are prompted to specify the base point of the displacement and a second point. The distance and direction from the first point to the second point are calculated and used to locate the new copied objects. To help you visualize the results, pick a base point on one of the objects to be copied (for example, the center of a circle). The second point then becomes the point on the copies that corresponds to the first point on the originals.
