Example text

All geometric shapes can be formed by the constructive use of two simple objects – lines and circles. Did you know that, in a CAD environment, a drafter spends only about 30% of his time placing lines and circles? He spends the vast majority of his time modifying what he has drawn and placing text on the drawing. Still, without a basic knowledge of placing lines and circles, the drafter will never leave the starting gate. We'll begin this lesson learning to use the most basic geometric shape with which we can work – the line.

2 Grid One of the drafting tricks we learned back in the pencil days was to lay a background grid sheet on our drawing board before taping down our drawing sheet. This grid served as a lettering guide and helped in aligning different items. AutoCAD's grid can be quite useful in aligning things. But as we'll see later, it'sn't necessary for sizing text. The grid toggles On or Off quite easily. And controlling the size and shape of the grid, together with some creative use of the Snap tool, will often dramatically increase your drawing speed.
