Step-by-Step: Drawing Polylines

1.    Open ab16-a.dwg from your CD-ROM.

2.    Save the file as ab16-1.dwg in your AutoCAD Bible folder. It shows a small section of a drive block, as shown in Figure 16-2. You need to complete part of the drawing. ORTHO and OSNAP should be on. Set running object snaps to endpoint, midpoint, and intersection. Layer 3 should be current.

Specify next point or[Arc/Close/Halfwidth/Length/Undo/Width]: Move the cursor in the 90-degree direction and type 3/32 J.

4. Type a J to continue with an arc. (Because your hands are already on the keyboard from typing the line length, it’s easier to type the option letter than to right-click and choose it from the shortcut menu.) At the Specify endpoint of arc or[Angle/CEnter/CLose/Direction/ Halfwidth/ Line/Radius/Second pt/Undo/Width]: prompt, type @3/16,3/16J.

5.    Type l Jto continue with a linear polyline segment. At the Specify next point or [Arc/Close/Halfwidth/Length/Undo/Width]: prompt, move the cursor in the 0-degree direction and type 11/32 J.
