Relative Coordinates at Rectangles
PeterDosh posted a topic in AutoCAD Beginners' AreaHi Forum, First of all, I know this is a well discussed topic and still: Please dont blame me for not using the search function or the helpfile - honestly: I tried it all and thorough. Im at Autocad 2012. When I start drawing a line from a specific point in the drawing and type in the dimensions via DYN - relative coordinates work like a charm, but when I start a rectangle from the same point and type in the dimensions (via DYN) it wont work. It does not change when I set dynpicoords to 0 or 1. Nothing else happens when I type @ or # or nothing as prefix. I guess there is either a solution or an easy explanation for this. I would be highly thankful, if someone can help me. Thanks in advance for reading and thinking. Cheers Pete
Arc (start-2nd-end point) absolute or relative coordinates
khoshravan posted a topic in AutoCAD GeneralI have a problem with absolute and relative coordinate regarding drawing an arc. From my previous studies, I thought whenever I input coordinates in command line, in order to use absolute coordinates I just enter them. If I want to use relative coord, then I can prefix them with @ sign. For an arc I input as follows: start point: 0,0 2nd point: 500,500 end point: 1000,0. I was expecting to get a half circle from origin to 1000,0 point but to my surprise I find out that CAD gets the input coordinates as relative. Am I missing something? Is this behavior same for all other object drawings? 1.dwg
