The following exercise is designed to show you how to construct simple shapes from given dimensions and to allow you to practice the basic AutoCAD commands which you have already learned. Use the tutorials to cover any topics you are unsure of.
Note: When drawing the site outline, you do not need to draw the dimensions.
Your client owns a site that lies on the Greenwich Meridian (the site is shown below). She has decided to celebrate the forthcoming millennium by developing the site as a public park. She hopes the money to develop the park will come from the millennium commission and that the development of this park will form a part of the "Meridian Tree Line" project. In order to help gain funding you have been asked to develop an illustrative masterplan design for the site that will be used to put the case for funding to the commission. All submissions must be in digital format and you will, therefore, have to use CAD techniques to produce the masterplan.
The Millennium Tree Line project is an international project that aims to plant trees along the Greenwich Meridian in celebration of the millennium. This will obviously form a major design element of the site, however, your client would also like to see the introduction of some water into the design and an interpretation centre/cafe.
If you found this tutorial useful, you might like to consider making a donation. All content on this site is provided free of charge and we hope to keep it that way. However, running a site like CADTutor does cost money and you can help to improve the service and to guarantee its future by donating a small amount. We guess that you probably wouldn't miss $5.00 but it would make all the difference to us.
