Solid, Donut, Fill, and Fill Mode Commands in AutoCAD
Now we will see how to use solid, donut, fill and fill mode commands. Firstly we will look that what is solid command. The shortcut key for using solid command is the 'S+O+Enter' key.
After that, we will select four points of the rectangle, in which we will choose 3rd point below the 1st point. And as soon as we choose all four topics, we will see that the rectangle is excellent filled.
We can also change the color from the properties option. By default selected color will be white.
Another command which we are using is the 'Donut' command. In this, we need to specify the inside diameter and outside diameter. As we enter both diameters, we will get our required object.
We can also draw only inner diameter objects or only outer diameter objects by entering zero in opposite diameters.
Now we will see what is 'Fill' and 'Fill mode' command. It will simply 'fill' or 'fill not' in our object. After applying this command, we need to use one another command, i.e., 'R+E+Enter,' ie. Regenerate command.
The FILL command in AutoCAD is used to fill the interior of a closed area with a solid color, pattern or hatch. The FILLMODE command in AutoCAD is used to set the fill mode.
There are two types of FILLMODE commands in AutoCAD:
The INSIDE option fills an enclosed area with the color, pattern or hatch specified by the user.
The OUTSIDE option fills an enclosed area with the outside boundary line.
There are two ways to fill a closed object in AutoCAD. One way is to use the FILL command and the other way is to use the FILLET command.
To fill an object with a solid color, select it and type “FILL” at the command line. You can then enter specific values for color, or you can press ENTER and use the default options. When you press ENTER, AutoCAD will fill your object with a solid color of your choice.
To fillet an object with a solid fill, select it and type “FILLET” at the command line. You can then enter specific values for radius or you can press ENTER and use default options.
The donut shape is drawn by extruding a circle and then drawing a line to create the hole.
This tutorial will show you how to create a donut in Autocad:
Create a circle and then extrude it by 3 units.
Create another circle and extrude it by 2 units.
Join the two circles together using the “Join” tool from the “Edit” menu, and then delete the smaller circle so that you are left with a donut shape.
