Draw ECLLIPSE in AutoCAD - Ellipse Command in AutoCAD
Now in this video we will see that how we can draw ellipse in AutoCAD.
First of all to draw a ellipse we will go to our Draw panel and select ellipse where we will see three different options as 'Centre', 'Axis, End', 'Elliptical Arc'.
Shortcut key for drawing ellipse in AutoCAD is 'EL+Enter' key.
Let us take the first option for drawing ellipse ie. 'Axis, End'. In this we will first select our First Starting point and then second point in the same line, which will give us an ellipse, and after that we will select one endpoint which will get us our complete ellipse. It is actually concept based, we have first selected major axis by marking two points, and then minor axis by marking third and with the help of both axis we are able to draw complete Ellipse.
Now we will take second option for drawing ellipse ie. 'Centre'. In this we will first enter the length of our major axis and then length of minor axis, this will get us the ellipse of provided dimensions.
Now we will take another option for drawing ellipse ie. 'Elliptical Arc'. In this we will first write dimensions for major axis and minor axis and draw ellipse first, and then we need to specify start angle and then our elliptical arc will be seen as we move our mouse cursor, now we will be asked to specify the end angle of the arc where we want our arc to end, so we will enter it and then an elliptical arc of our provided dimensions will get created.
An ellipse is a type of closed curve that has the shape of a circle but is not circular. An ellipse is created by two lines that intersect at two points called foci. The distance between the foci (the axis) is called the major axis and the distance from one focus to the other (the minor axis). If you were to draw an ellipse on paper, you would start with two dots and connect them with a curved line.
To draw an oval shape in Autocad, you need to know the following:
The ellipse is the most basic shape in AutoCAD. It can be created by using the “Ellipse” command.
To create an ellipse, use the “Ellipse” command and specify the following parameters:
