How to use extend command

Extend Command in AutoCAD


In this video, we are going to see that how to use Extend command in AutoCAD.

First of all, we will click on Extend command from our modified panel or command prompt window.

The shortcut key for Extend command is the 'E+X+Enter' key.

First of all, we will need to select the boundary edge for an extension. As soon as we determine, choose the whole object with the lines will pick the entire object with lines, and it will get extended till any boundary comes in front of it. If there is no boundary in front of that object, then the extension of that line is impossible.

Now we will look at some options of extend command. The possibilities are mostly the same as of trim command.

So the first option we will see is 'Fence,' it will create a fence line, and whichever lines or objects pass through its fence will get extended.

We have another option: 'Crossing.' From where were the crossing passes, it will get extended from there.

Another option we have is 'Edge.' It will create one imaginary line for all the other boundaries. Whenever they Extend the lines, they will stop at every border whether they are coming in their way or not because every edge will have an imaginary extension of themselves.

By pressing the shift button from the keyboard, we can change the extend command to trim command, and also, while using the trim command, we can press the shift button from our keyboard to transform it into extend command.
