How to use divide and measure command

Divide And Measure Command in AutoCAD


  • Divide Command in AutoCAD

In this video, we will see how we can measure and divide the object in AutoCAD.
We will start with the 'Divide' command. The shortcut key which we use for the divide command is the 'D+I+V+Enter' key.

we will first ask us that select object we want to divide so that we will select the object. And after that, it will ask us that enter the number of segments we want, so we will enter the number of segments and then the line divided into that many segments.

  • Measure Command in AutoCAD

Another command which we are going to talk about is the Measure command. The shortcut key which we use to measure the command is the 'M+E+Enter' key.

We will first ask to select the object only and then specify the distance between the two segments we want. So this will have segments according to our specified length.

We can also convert any other object into one particular block as per our requirement. For that, we will first press the 'B+Enter' key and then select the pick point of the thing. After that, using the select object tool, we will choose our object, and at last, choose the option of Convert to block and press 'OK'.

We need to name this block with something. And after that, we can select this block by its name from a command prompt, and after that, we will enter the number of segments we want where this block will be kept.

So in this way, we can use the divide and measure command in AutoCAD.



It is possible to divide a line in Autocad by selecting the line and then clicking on Divide. You can also select the line and then click on the Divide button in the Home tab. The final way to divide a line is by using a command that will create two lines from one. To do this, you need to select the line and then go to Tools > Break Lines.

  • There are many ways to measure the distance between two objects in AutoCad. The easiest way to measure the distance between two points is by using the line command. This is done by typing "line" and then selecting two points on your screen. The default units for this measurement are in inches.
  • Another way to measure the distance between two points is by using a radius of a circle. To do this, you would need to use the "circle" command and then enter in both of your points as coordinates of where you want the center point of your radius to be. A third way is by using a line segment that has been drawn with an arc or ellipse tool and measuring it with a ruler tool.

  • The first step is to draw a circle. The second step is to divide the circle into quarters. The third step is to divide the quarter into 3 equal parts. The fourth step is to divide each of these three parts into 3 equal parts.
  • The fifth step is to take the three parts at the top of your diagram and divide them in half, horizontally and vertically. These are your first two segments. Repeat this process for all other segments, making sure that you alternate between horizontal and vertical division lines each time you create a new segment.

  • A point is the intersection of two lines. The distance between two points can be calculated by using the Pythagorean theorem. The problem with finding the center point is that there are many ways to find it, depending on what you are trying to do with it.
  • For example, if you want to find the center point of a circle, you will need to calculate the diameter and divide it by 2. If you want to find the center point of a triangle, then you need to use its three sides and find its height.

  • The most popular way to divide a circle into 12 equal segments is to use a protractor. First, draw a line from the center of the circle to the edge. Next, place the protractor on this line and rotate it so that its zero degree mark is on the edge of the circle. Now, measure off 12 equal divisions from this point.
  • The second method is to use a compass and straightedge. First, draw a line from one edge of the circle to another and then extend it outside of the circle's boundary by 1/12th of its radius. Next, draw another line at right angles with this one and mark off 12 divisions on it with a compass or ruler.
