Different Features Of AutoCad:


1. MenuBar: 2. Toolbar:

3. Title Bar. 4. Drawing Area: Complete black screen of Graphical User Interface. 5. Command Area: Where we write command. 6. Horizontal Scroll Bar. 7. Vertical Scroll Bar.

Some Important Steps Before Any Work on Project:


1. Save your file first anywhere you want in your Hard disk. 2. Specify units of your project. It defines drawing units, length precision, angle type, angle

precision etc. 3. Specify Drawing limits of your project. It defines the area of your drawing sheet where you work 4. Zoom your sheet. It will zoom your whole sheet in GUI.
NOTE: Numbering such as (1.2.3.) represents main points. This symbol represent detail of point This symbol represent Press Enter button This symbol represent Then Go to This symbol represent General commands in AutoCAD

AN INTRODUCTION TO 3D
In 3D we use isometric views In 2D we use orthogonal views (top, bottom, front, back, left, right) In 3D some commands acts in the same way as in 2D.

1. Go to from menu bar View 3D Views SW isometric. 2. Go to from menu bar View 3D Views Top. 3. Type PL . (Using Poly line command make plan).

command we give height of building, Extrude command does not act on simple line command , it act on Poly line command. Poly line command make group of lines or in union. (It behaves as one object). Extrude Command will not act when Poly line is not closed. When Poly line will overlap then Extrude command will not function. 4. Type EXT .(Extrude Command) 5. Select internal and external walls or lines .
MUHAMMAD USMAN REGISTERATION NO. 06-CE-105 AUTOCAD 2004 NOTES

Using Extrude

6. Give Height of extrusion (for e.g 12`) . 7. Give Taper Angle (for e.g 0) . 8. Type SHADE .

After typing a dialogue box will appear as shown below:


9. Type SU . (For subtract any area). 10. Select outer walls . 11. Select inner walls . 12. Right click at the top right and Go to Acad 3D Orbit (A new tool

bar will appear as shown below).


With the help of 3D Orbit tool bar we can rotate our object manually

as well as continuously which is explained below: With the help of 3D Orbit we can rotate our object manually. With the help of 3D Orbit Continuous we can rotate our object continuously and to stop its rotation just click. 13. Right click at the top right and Go to Acad View (A new tool bar will appear as shown below).
It prevents time wastage in again and again going to from menu bar

View 3D Views Top etc. Just click at the tool from the above tool bar and serve the purpose. 14. Right click at the top right and Go to Acad Shade (A new tool bar will appear as shown below). It prevents time wastage in again and again typing different tools name. In 3D there are three things: i) Wire Frame ii) Surface(2D) iii) Solid. With the help of Wire Frame we can also do the same function as with Solid but point selection is easy in Wire Frame. 15. Type -CH . (For change in properties for e.g elevation, thickness etc.) 16. Select Window . 17. Type P . (For change in properties). 18. Type E . (For change in elevation). 19. Specify new elevation (for e.g 3`) . 20. Type T . (For change in thickness). 21. Type 4` . (For e.g height of window).

CREATE ROOF SLAB: 1. Click RECTANGLE from tool bar on left of GUI. 2. Draw Rectangle at outer walls. 3. Take Offset of 2`. 4. Extrude the offset triangle normally 6. 5. See in Solids view. You can improve brightness and other properties of solids and also create some other things by just typing 3D in command area and the following options will be shown:

With the help of these options you can create different objects and also make them beautiful. To see plan Just Type plan and . To see Isometric view Just type VP . , after that type angle on which view you want to see. BOUNDARY CREATION: 1. Type BO . The purpose of Boundary Creation is to make different objects to a single object and they behave as a Poly line. 2. Select Pick points 3. Select Inner point in area . All the lines will be converted to Poly line. Here Poly line will be created above the original line and original lines are below of Poly lines. STAIRS: Flight: Continuous series of steps is called Flight. In one Flight normally there are 12 to 14 steps. 1. First make Stair Case in Top view.
