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.

Express tools COPYM is similar, it gives Array, Measure or Divide option.

Ahh, so they just finally adopted the ET command. Well I wish I had known about that command much earlier!! :)

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.
