AutoCAD Rectangle Tutorials
Drawing a rectangle - Tutorial for beginners
In this segment of tutorial exercise you will have an oppurtunity to learn how to draw a rectangle using AutoCAD...
Who Needs Rectangles?
Do you ever get tired of rectangular viewports? Seriously, life does not hand us tidy, rectangular drawing environments. This month I thought IÃ¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢d review a couple old tools that have been around since the release of A2000 but that are under the radar for most users. WeÃ¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ll also take a look at a Trim/Extend treat that may increase your productivity, along with a command Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“modifierÃ¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ you may be interested in.
LESSON 1-5: Selection Sets
By now you have probably seen a rectangle appear on your screen when you left-click and the move the crosshairs around. You`ll learn all about these in this lesson. AutoCAD uses what`s called a selection set to allow you to group objects together and then modify them.
Autolisp Learning Series - Lesson Eight: Hello, Rectangle
So far in this series you have learned about AutoLISP data types, function definitions, function arguments and variables. It is now time to take what you have learned and actually write a new command.
Lesson 3-10: Primitive Solids
A primitive solid is a Ã¢â‚¬Ëœbuilding block` that you can use to work with in 3D. Rather than extruding or revolving an object, AutoCAD has some basic 3D shape commands at your disposal. From these basic primitives, you can start building your 3D models. In many cases, you get the same result from drawing circles and rectangles and then extruding them, but doing it one command is generally faster. Using these with Boolean operations can be a very effective way of drawing in 3D.

Lesson 11- Object Snap
Improve your drafting productivity and accuracy with object snap. Object Snap tools are available from the Object Snap toolbar ( View - Toolbars to enable). They allow for precise drawing within Autocad. For example, a rectangle could be drawn from the exact endpoint of an existing line by simply selecting the `Snap to Endpoint` tool, or we could draw a line from the centrepoint of a circle using the `Snap to Center` tool.

Something For Everyone
This monthÃ¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s features have come from questions I encountered over the last few weeks. This month I have a solution for an easy way to create walls or other parallel line applications, tell you how a non-continuous linetype could be affected by something other than the LTSCALE factor, explain why blocks have weird names sometimes, and let you in on the startling ability to select objects in some fashion other than a rectangle all the time. ThereÃ¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s sure to be something in here for everyone.
Using OSNAP - Settings
OSNAP settings are used for drawing items from the end and midpoint of a line, center, quadrant or tangent of a circle, corner of a rectangle or square, from the intersection of two objects or a point (node) on the drawing.
The Stretch Command
The Stretch command can be used to move one or more vertices of an object whilst leaving the rest of the object unchanged. In the example below, a rectangle has been stretched by moving one vertex to create an irregular shape.
