Part III: Creating and Editing Drawings > Creating Elementary Objects

Chapter 7. Creating Elementary Objects

No matter how complicated a drawing is, no matter how many layers and linetypes it contains, almost all AutoCAD drawings are composed of a few relatively basic shapes and forms. Circles, arcs, lines, rectangles, polygons, and ellipses are the basic elements from which both simple and complicated drawings are made. This chapter shows you the tools you will need to construct and control AutoCAD’s basic drawing objects.

This chapter covers the following topics:

  • Using the LINE command

  • Using the ARC command

  • Using the CIRCLE command

  • Using the POLYGON command

  • Drawing ellipses
