Drawing 1/2 inch Rec. Tubing...Line Wts?


Recommended Posts

Just wondering how some cad drawers show the end of a tube at different thicknesses. It looks to me that they drew the end of the tube (which has a 1/2 thick wall all around) drawn with a thicker line. Because the tube is 6 by 4 inches with a 1/2 wall, the radius on the tube is about a 1/2 and not near totally sharp point square like a normal small tubing.

 

Any ideas on how to draw with one line? I could do a multi line MLine but I would rather do it with one line. I have seen some info on line weights / thicknesses but nothing near what I am looking for.

 

Thanks,

Oxy

Rectangle in a rectangle, radius the corners?

 

Guess I wouldn't bother unless showing a detail or a "close up" of a part and/or weldment.

A company sent us over some drawings to the place I work at. The end detail of the tube was formed by lines but was very thick. 1/2 thich to be exact. Not sure how this was done. Would that have something to do with line weight?

Or maybe a region? Or a solid hatch? Or a polyline with thickness? Double click that entity and in the top of the properties window you will see what it is.

Problem is is that the drawing is on my bosses computer and he is away on vacation so I have to wait a few days. It was on a engineers drawing in autoCAD if that makes any difference?
