    Default Basic CAD commands

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Does anybody know where I can get a "basic" list of cad commands? I have some guys that are just learning and it would help me out to have a list of basic draw commands and basic modify commands to help show them. They used to have a pull-out in the back of the cad books but I can not find one now.

    Thanks.

    hmm.....A suggestion: I would take a Print screen of the Modify-toolbar and the Draw-toolbar (guessing on the names), dump the Print Screens in Paint, magnify the toolbars til they fill a A4, print it out and then mark each of the buttons with the corresponding command and give your students.

    Just an idea.

    In a nutshell, I create 3D models from the client's CAD files or design sketches which I then use to produce high quality rendered images. Click on the link in my signature to view my portfolio. I'm always looking for work, so let me know if you need any custom models or renders. :)

    Which CAD?

    If you have posted here It must be AutoCAD but there are a lot of different cad programmes out there. 2D and 3D.

    Press the F1 key (help) it will give a long list which is not what really what you are asking for.

    You have to understand I am trying to teach an old dog new tricks and was just looking for something quick and easy that others have used to help teach some simple basic commands. I will probably just write something up myself along with everything else I'm writing up for our Cad department.

    Thanks for the help.

    print the .pgp file. Not only will it get you basic commands, but it'll include the shorthand commands.

    You may not get as far as you think.

    For first, the ailias routines ought to kick in once you get going.

    L for line,
    C for circle,
    A for arc,
    etc.
