Sample text

Does it look familiar? It should. Two of the frames are identical to the Block Definition dialog box. Let's examine the other frames. 2a • In the Source frame, AutoCAD gives you three options: ♦ The Block option opens the control box next to it. Here you can select from a list of blocks existing in the drawing to be saved as separate drawing files (WBlocks). ♦ Of course, the Entire drawing option allows you to create a separate drawing file using all of the objects in the drawing. ♦ The Objects option (the default) behaves like the Block command and allows you to select objects just as you did using the Block Definition dialog box.

The length, or Record increment, of the line determines how soft the arcs of the sketch will appear. Shorter lines appear rounder. Unfortunately, the shorter the line segment, the more segments are required to complete the sketch. This results in a dramatic increase in the size of the drawing. Additionally, it becomes very difficult to modify a sketch with hundreds of line segments. • The Pen option acts as the default (even though it isn't identified using normal AutoCAD conventions). A click of the left button activates the Pen down mode.

After the Pen up mode has been activated while in a Sketch command, you can return to the endpoint of the last line segment drawn using the Connect option. Let's see what we can do with the Sketch command. Chapter 17: Hatching and Section Lines 31 32 Chapter 17: Hatching and Section Lines Note The trick to drawing sketch lines is to set the system variable - SKPoly - to 1. This way, the sketch lines are created as polyline segments instead of individual lines. You can then modify the entire object using the PEdit command.
