New Array option with COPY command - AutoCAD 2012


Recommended Posts

I found this nifty little addition to the COPY command for AutoCAD 2012.


Command: [color=red][b]COPY[/b][/color]
Select objects: 1 found
Specify base point or [Displacement/mOde] <Displacement>: [b][color=red]<Pick a point>[/color][/b]
Specify second point or [Array] <use first point as displacement>: [color=red][b]A[/b][/color]
Enter number of items to array: [color=red][b]<Pick a number>[/b][/color]
Specify second point or [Fit]: [color=red][b]F[/b][/color]


Granted, LISP routines have been around for ages but it's kinda nice for Autodesk to actually implement some functionality like this.


Just thought I'd share. :)

There's actually plenty of new items that I love. OFFSETEDGE is another great one for working in 3D. I don't know how many times that would have saved time and effort in previous modeling jobs I've done.

Did you also know you can now XREF a native Photoshop file (*.PSD File) directly into AutoCAD now, using the IMAGEATTACH option in AutoCAD 2012? Works beautifully.
