Dadgad Posted May 20, 2020 Share Posted May 20, 2020 We are always happy to help teach you, but nobody is keen to do your work for you, which is why nobody has attached any .dwg files. As you can see there are lots of different ways to skin a CAD. Hopefully we will help fasttrack you to recognizing some of those. There is no need to draw the whole layout, if, in a case like this, there are lines of symmetry, across which your work can be mirrored. Or also, as in this case, if you draw one quadrant (quarter of the drawing), you can then use the ARRAY or ARRAYCLASSIC command, to complete the other 3 quadrants. Just read the commandline prompts very carefully, move slowly, and be curious enough to click on those commandline options when you have the time to experiment, so that you will learn the true potential of each command. In this case, after ARRAYING or MIRRORING you would need to have been observant enough to note that single additional line which is non-symmetrical, and remember to add it, or your instructor will definitely be deducting points for its omission. Since you say that your instructor is somewhat less than communicative, or should I say Instructive? Do yourself a favor and visit MYCADSITE . It is a very good self instructional approach to learning AutoCAD. The lessons are very well thought out and planned in an intuitive progression, with chapter tests at the end of each installment. I used it 12 years ago to teach myself AutoCAD, had a pretty good understanding of most of the basics after a few days. I still love doing CAD, never seem to tire of all there is to learn. Nobody knows it all. Not even Eldon, with the secret CADerati handshake! Nor does he think he does. How refreshing that is! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
