Create layers in AutoCAD


Now we will see that how we can create layers in AutoCAD.
Layers are used to repeat the settings we have done like color, line type, line type scale, etc. We do not need to apply that setting repeatedly; therefore, we will use layer properties.

We can select the layer properties from the command menu or enter the shortcut key in our command prompt window. The shortcut key for using this command is the 'L+A+Enter' key.

As soon as we enter the shortcut key, one menu will appear in front of our screen named 'Layer Properties Manager. So from here, we can make new layers.

Firstly we will be given some options in different columns like Status, Name, On, Freeze, Lock, Color, Linetype, Lineweight, Transparency, Plot Style, and many more.

Now we will click on New layer and name the layer first as 'WALLS.' After that. We will select the color of it as per our choice. Here we will choose red color.

After that, we can also select line type, and if the line type we want is not loaded, we can load it from the Load button provided there and then select it.

Similarly, we can also give the line weight to the line which we selected.

By the same method, we can also create a new layer, and name it 'CENTRE' and choose the color of our choice. Here, in this case, we will select a yellow color. If we want the centerline, we can load it and select it in the line type column. Also, we can manage the line weight according to our choice from the options it provides.

So like this, we can create multiple layers and add data of our choice.
Hence when we want to use any layer, we will select the layer by double-clicking it and using it to draw the line.

So like this, we can create layers in AutoCAD and use them.
