Ok, so I got started. I have a couple of questions. I must be in the wrong mode (snap, or dynamic, etc...) Anyways, I am doing a simple orthographic projection and I have a few questions. 1: chamfer- I pick the top and side lines but it doesnt chamfer for me. I read the book and clicked the help button, but nothing is happening. 2: I can't offset to a specific mathematical distance. ex. .62 or 1.56 from one of the lines. If I can figure this out, I know I can fix my other 2 questions, so I won't bother asking them. 3: Is it ok if my dimensions partially overlap the current layer(s)? thanks again.

2. I got the offset problem fixed. I'm just going to use the command line instead. sorry I didnt think of that earlier.

3. Re: Chamfer Your input should be something like this:

Command: CHAMfer

(TRIM mode) Current chamfer Dist1 = 0.0000, Dist2 = 0.0000
Select first line or [Undo/Polyline/Distance/Angle/Trim/mEthod/Multiple]: D
Specify first chamfer distance <0.0000>: .25
Specify second chamfer distance <0.2500>: .25

Select first line or [Undo/Polyline/Distance/Angle/Trim/mEthod/Multiple]:
Select second line or shift-select to apply corner or [Distance/Angle/Method]:

4. Dimensions should not overlap the underlying geometry. However, since I'm not exactly sure of what your specific situation is I would need to see an image to comment further.

Lol, looks like PF admits it isn't good enough!

6. ok now I can get an idea whats going on. I put the 3 views as a block, and I put the title as a block. so when I am in model i click grid, and it's a small box. so somewhere or somehow I have to change the size. I know it's a simple fix, but sometimes I can't see whats right in front of me. I need help sizing the title block to the paper size 8.5 x 11. It seems as though the border in paper space is about 3 inches in. The border suppose to go about 3/8th from the edge. Also, my 3 views are not to size. they need to be bigger. how do I do that in model space?

8. How do I know what parts need a pictorial view? or is it the whole basketball game?

9. I think it would be the whole thing not just a few of the parts.

ok, so I am going to assume it's the isometric pictorial view they are requesting.
