Auto CAD Tips
Architectural Design is a sequence of making accurate designs for various phases with improved methodical technique. Architectural Design is an important part to generate various building designs that satisfy all the purposes and plays a critical role in making of digitized format for rough and handmade sketches. It was done traditionally on paper in past time. In the present technical era, manual architectural designs are become old technique and due to that architects have developed software like AutoCAD. The other important aspect for architect is to maintain complete view of all designs as per requirements. These architectural designs used for different purposes and specifications. Let us know more for cad designs that rapidly used for various building types with easy to do tips:
As you place your hatch, you can easily switch from picking points to selecting objects. First define the hatch in the Hatch and Gradient dialog box (the BHATCH command). Then choose either Pick Points or Select Objects to return to your drawing. Start placing the hatch. Then get to switch methods, right-click to open the shortcut menu. Choose the option you want. You can also undo your last select/pick, change island detection mode, and preview the hatch.
Tips on viewing your drawing The faster you can display the section of your drawing where you need to work, the faster you can get started drawing and editing. With that in mind, here are some tips for viewing your drawing:
Use the mouse wheel
The mouse wheel is the key to fast view changes:
* You can zoom in and out by rolling your mouse wheel. Roll away from you to zoom in, towards you to zoom out. Did you know that where you place the cursor determines the center of the zoom? You don't have to click. Just move the cursor to the area of your drawing that you want to zoom in to, and zoom in with the mouse wheel.
* You can do a Zoom Extents by double-clicking the mouse wheel.
* You can pan by dragging (pressing and holding) with the mouse wheel. Tip: You can pan past the application window and even the edge of your screen. Just keep dragging the mouse cursor. ,/p>
* In 3D drawings, press Shift + the mouse wheel and drag do to a transparent 3D orbit. Save a view Saving views is especially helpful in large drawings. Set up the view that you want and then use the VIEW command to open the View Manager. Click New and enter a name. Click OK to accept the default of using the current view. Or choose Define Window to return to your drawing to define a view boundary.
You can pan and zoom at the same time. Press Enter to return to the View Manager. Click OK to complete the process.

You can open a drawing to a saved view. In the Select File dialog box, check the Select Initial View check box and click Open. The Select Initial View dialog box opens, where you can choose the view that you want to display when you open the drawing. Click OK.
Use the View Cube For 3D drawings, the new View Cube is a handy way to change viewpoints. You just click on the face, edge or corner of the cube. You can also drag the View Cube to make minor changes in your viewport; it's not that different from 3D Orbit.
