How to draw rectangle

AutoCAD Rectangle Command

In this video, we will see what is AutoCAD Rectangle command and learn how to Draw Rectangle in AutoCAD.

To draw a rectangle, first of all, go to the draw panel then click on the rectangle, simply type 'rectangle' in the command line. The shortcut key for the rectangle command is 'rec'.

We can just simply press the left mouse button and draw a rectangle from its starting point and release that button at the ending point. This will give us our required rectangle.

Now we will see how we can draw a rectangle with dimensions, for that we will type rec and draw a rectangle and while drawing we will see the dimensions option in our command prompt so we will select it and specify our length dimension and then width dimension, it will get us our rectangle according to the dimension provided.

When we will draw any rectangle we will see that it will rotate with our mouse cursor, so to fix it at a place we just need to click inside it and it will get fixed there.

We can also draw a square by providing the same dimensions for Length and Width.

We can find another option in the command prompt as 'Area', when we select it we will need to enter the first Area and then the length or width anyone, it will automatically count the other according to the formula for the rectangle's area.

We also have an option named 'Rotation' in the rectangle's command which will draw a rectangle at a certain angle, we can also manually write angle according to our choice.


Autocad is a popular CAD software that is used in the design and drafting of buildings, bridges, and other structures. Autocad is used for designing a lot of things like machinery, electronics, and even toys. Autocad has many different shapes that can be used in order to create objects. These shapes are called “rectangles”. There are 3 different types of rectangles in autocad:

1) Rectangle Tool-The Rectangle Tool is used to draw 2D objects on the screen by specifying the length and width of the rectangle.

2) Polygon Tool-The Polygon Tool is used to draw 3D objects on the screen by specifying the number of sides needed for it.

3) Line Tool-The Line Tool is used to draw 2D objects on the screen by specifying the start point and end point.

Autocad is a computer-aided design, drafting and engineering program. This software is used by architects, engineers, drafters and other professionals to design buildings, bridges and other structures.

The first step in drawing rectangles in autocad is to create a rectangle tool. To do this go to the toolbar at the top of the screen and select "drawing" then "rectangle". Next draw a rectangle by clicking where you want it to start on the screen then dragging your cursor to where you want it to end.

The next step would be to draw another rectangle by clicking where you want it to start on the screen then dragging your cursor until you have reached where you want it to stop.

  • Draw a rectangle in AutoCAD.
  • First, you need to draw a line that is the length and width of the rectangle.
  • Then, you need to select the line and then right-click on it.
  • Lastly, click on “Create Rectangle” from the pop-up menu.

  • The RECtang command is a command that is used to measure the angle of a curve. It can be used to measure the angle between two lines or the slope of an object.
  • To use this command, you need to first select the point that you want to measure and then draw a line from it and another point on your screen. The RECtang command will automatically show you the angle between those two points.

There are three ways to fillet corners of rectangles in AutoCAD:

  • Use the FILLET command
  • Create a rectangular edge with the LINE command
  • Draw a rectangle and use the TRIM command

AutoCAD is CAD software that can be used on all major operating systems. AutoCAD is available for Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, and Linux.

AutoCAD is a software that is used for drafting and designing. It was developed by Autodesk, Inc. in 1982. AutoCAD is used by architects, engineers, and designers to design buildings or other structures. AutoCAD's main purpose is to provide a way of designing buildings or other structures without the need for manual drafting of blueprints.
