How to use Rotate Command in AutoCAD


Now in this video, we will see that how to use Rotate command in AutoCAD.

Start rotate command, we will go to our modified panel and select rotate command option.

The shortcut key for rotate command is the 'R+O+Enter' key.

First of all, we will be asked to select the object we want to rotate, so we will choose the line and then select the base point for it, and after that, we will be able to rotate that line from its base point.

We can also rotate the object at any particular angle by providing angle degree. We will select the object and then select the base point for it, and after that, we will give a specific angle we want as per our requirement and then rotate accordingly.

We want to keep the main object as it is and add the rotated object to it. We can then use the 'copy' option, which will keep the main thing and add the rotated object.


The scale of a CAD drawing is the ratio between the size of an object in real life and its size on paper. This ratio is set by the user and is usually expressed as a fraction or percentage. It can be changed at any time by selecting one of the options from the Scale menu.

The scale command is a simple command that scales an object in the scene. The scale can be changed by entering a new value or by dragging the scale handles. This command is used to make objects appear smaller or larger. For example, if you want to make an object appear larger, you can use the scale command and enter a higher number.

  • There are two ways to scale text in Autocad. The first way is to use the Command line by typing “SCALE” followed by the desired scaling factor. For example, if you want to increase the size of the text by 200%, type “SCALE 2” and hit enter.
  • The second way is to use the scale property in AutoCAD Text Editor. To do this, select the text that you want to scale and then go into Properties. Enter a desired scaling factor in the Scale field and hit enter.

Text is used to annotate drawings and provide information about them. Text can be used to provide information about the drawing, the drawing's title, the date of creation, or other annotations. Text can also be used to label objects in a drawing or indicate their dimensions.

The following are some of the best practices for scaling text in Autocad:

  • Use the Text Style Manager to create a text style for your text
  • Use the Text Height Manager to set the height of your text
  • Use the Text Width Manager to set the width of your text
  • Select an appropriate font size for your scaled text
