Associative Surface Modeling
Associative Surface Modeling
In this Web tutorial, we will create a mower cover for a kids toy lawn mower. We will learn curve creation, how to create different types of surfaces, what the effects are when we create an associative solid and filleting as a solid instead of surfaces. We will also learn the concept of using associative solids for booleans instead of trimming surfaces, using profiles to add holes, using the Pattern command, and finally modification of original curves to change the solid when finished.

In-place Editing Of Blocks And Xrefs
In-place Editing Of Blocks And Xrefs
In AutoCAD 2002, you can edit blocks and external references (xrefs) in the host drawing—the drawing in which you have inserted them. Previously, to modify a block created by inserting another drawing or an xref into the host drawing, you had to leave that drawing, open the original drawing of the block or xref, and edit it there. Then you had to update the block or xref in the host drawing.

Autocad Q&a: How Do I Convert A 3d Model Into A 2d Drawing?
Autocad Q&a: How Do I Convert A 3d Model Into A 2d Drawing?
Prior to AutoCAD 2002 I was able to plot an EPS file of a solid model and then import the EPS file into a new drawing to obtain a 2D drawing of my original 3D model. I can`t seem to do that with AutoCAD 2002. Does anyone know another way to accomplish this?

The Offset Command
The Offset Command
Offset is probably one of the most useful commands for constructing drawings. The Offset command creates a new object parallel to or concentric with a selected object. The new object is drawn at a user defined distance (the offset) from the original and in a direction chosen by the user with a pick point. You can offset lines, arcs, circles, ellipses, 2D polylines, xlines, rays and planar splines.
