Chapter 28. Drawing in 3D in AutoCAD > 3D AutoCAD Editing Commands

3D AutoCAD Editing Commands

Like the line and polyline commands, most AutoCAD editing commands can be also utilized to work in three dimensions. In addition to the standard editing commands, AutoCAD also provides you with several 3D-specific editing commands intended for use in 3D. We will first look at the basic 2D editing commands to see how they are utilized in three dimensions.

Using MOVE, COPY, SCALE, and ROTATE in 3D

The basic 2D editing commands in AutoCAD include MOVE, COPY, SCALE, and ROTATE. Depending upon your view of the 3D model, each of these commands can be easily used in 3D as well. For example, consider the MOVE command. If you are working in an isometric view, you can use the MOVE command in combination with object snap modes to move and place objects in three-dimensional space. This works well when you have existing geometry to use—that is, when you have a 3D point to move from and to.
