Summary

In this chapter, you learned about working with linetypes and lineweights effectively. You reviewed assigning linetypes to objects, and you worked through an exercise on how to load linetypes. You reviewed how to control the linetype scale factor, both globally and individually. You also worked with custom linetypes, creating both simple and complex linetypes.

In the section discussing lineweights, you learned how to control the width of lines AutoCAD uses to draw objects. You learned you can assign lineweights by layer or individually. You learned that lineweights behave differently in model space and paper space. You also worked with controlling how lineweights appear onscreen in model space, by adjusting their apparent scale without affecting their width in paper space or when plotted.
