Polyline AutoCAD - How to Draw Polytine in AutoCAD
In the last video we have seen that how we can draw spline, Hindi video we will see about polyline command in AutoCAD and how we can draw polylines in AutoCAD.
The shortcut key for drawing polylines in AutoCAD is 'P+L+Enter' key. As soon as we enter in polyline it will ask us to specify start point, then we will draw our polyline similarly how we drew our lines using line command. Move our mouse cursor in the direction we want our polyline in AutoCAD to be and then entering dimension of it.
We are also provided with different options in command prompt services Arc, Close, Halfwidth, Length, Undo, Width.
We have an option Arc, which says that we can also draw arc in our polyline. When we select our option we will be able to draw arc in place of lines.
The main difference between line and polyline is that when we select the polyline it will be whole selected at once, while only single single lines will be selected in case of lines.
Now we will again draw a polyline in AutoCAD, and see Halfwidth and Width option in Command prompt window. When we select width option we are asked to enter starting and ending width of our line in mm, when we will enter it a line with provided dimension will appear on our screen.
We can also draw Arrow icon with the help of width option, by providing startimg with as 0.5 and ending width as 2. And then join it by another small dimensioned line with starting and ending width same as 1.
It will create an arrow type shape in front of our screen. By using similar method we can also draw double sided arrow.
We can also use the option of length from command prompt window to set the size of the line.
Now we can use Close option when we have draw some polylines and want to joint the starting and ending point together. It means that this joins the starting point and ending point with each other from anywhere automatically.
A polyline is a series of connected straight line segments. Creating a polyline is the first step in creating any 2D drawing.
