2D Drawing Tools


Most 2D and 3D commands require points. You can snap to existing points or create new points. This section covers the various point options in DesignCAD.

Setting Points

Points form the basis of all drawing commands, determining the location of a line or curve, the diameter of a circle, or the radius of an arc.You can select point commands from the Command Menu or the Snap Toolbox, or you can use shortcut keys. The Snap Toolbox works the same way as the Main Toolbox does. To choose a point command, click on the icon for the command.

Setting a point is easy. Press the Ins key or click the left mouse button. That’s all there is to it. The right mouse button activates the Gravity command, if the Enable Right Click Popup Menu option in the General Options is disabled.
