Using Setting Variables to Define the Size and Shape of Drawing Objects

The next two objects, donuts and points, are very basic elements that can be mastered shortly after you create them. In the context of this book, these objects are used to show how setting variables can modify the display of certain drawing objects, which is illustrated in the next section.

Donuts and the Fillmode Setting

Donuts can be used to create a filled circle in a drawing, and is typically used when you want a hole to be represented as such. Instances of when you might use this command are when drawing rivet holes or conduit coming up through a wall. Creating a donut is as easy as specifying the inner and outside diameter and then defining where you want the center of the donut to be located. The value for the inside diameter of the donut is saved in the variable DONUTID and the outside diameter in the system variable DONUTOD.
