9. STATUS TOOLBAR MOD's WORK
As part of the window AutoCAD is its status toolbar that contains buttons for ON / OFF function groups during the drawing. When the button is pressed then the active group of concerned functions to their preferences. The status bar contains buttons for the function: SNAP, GRID, ORTHO, POLAR, OSNAP, OTRACK, DUCS, DYN, LWT, MODEL.
I usually start with the following function buttons including: Ortho, Osnap, Otrack and Model.
During the work started drawing a line you can freely activate and deactivate some of the buttons in the status bar, without fear that will stop the action begun drawing a line.
For example: (AutoCAD tangent to the circle) when you start to draw a line and clicking on the desktop and then you want to connect to the line tangent to the circle already drawn for which sight is not included, simply click on the button OSNAP right
mouse button, select the option for the tangent sight click on OK and continue to target the tangent circles in the drawing.
Note that once you start a drawing and you clicked first click to start, no problem you can switch to another window or a function button in the status bar (Help AutoCAD, IE, OE, Photoshop, etc.) and then back into working AutoCAD window and continue with
SNAP - Function button Snap, on/off option which we determine what will be the support network that is a step that will move the cursor on the drawing. Here note, if you can not click the mouse pointer exactly to a specific location on a drawing, but you always Autocad positioned closest to a town then you SNAP included a big step. Simply turn off SNAP click of a button.
In the picture below you see that you can set up as desired by the X axis and Y axis (in the picture is 10 units of the spacing between neighboring points), it turns on and off with the (F9).
GRID - Also note that on the same card can be On/Off GRID (F7)
ORTHO - Orthogonal drawing or rectangular drawing, it means that when you turn this feature lines that you drag the mouse
will be angled in relation to the UCS and you can draw only the angle that is set and it is 90 degrees.
POLAR - Polar coordinates follow when you draw the line, if this function is activated then the Ortho automatically turned off
because when you draw with the POLAR function of the mouse you can draw lines at an angle to the set and you can also set up and draw it with absolute or relative coordinates when drawing lines
OSNAP - Aiming (target) at a particular point of a line derived from activated Osnap which contains some basic positions on the
line, circle, image, and the like. Endpoint, midpoint, and other sights for other points of attachment appear only
when we turn Osnap mode (and turn on each target). All lines in the figure, circles, etc.. have a connecting point for the target, so to distinguish GRIP (grips) of the target.
BTW: Hindsight is like a magnet, when you approach a point of attachment and appears hindsight, whether you're precisely on a given point or not, just click and Autocad will bind to the target presented.
SO pay attention! When you close more tombstones (zoom in enough to see a drawing of a tombstone that bind)
OSNAP mod : F3 => Endpoint, Midpoint, Center, Node, Quadrant, Intersection, Extension
OTRACK - F11 - Intersetion, Perpendicular, Tangent, Nearest, Apparent intersection, Parallel
If you turn OTRACK / POLAR mode then you have an active extra dashed line that helps you draw the line to align with a line (point) to the already drawn parts of the drawings.
How does OTRACK mod?Including button functions to incorporate the ancillary mode OTRACK a line that helps in drawing the mouse and the eventual
completion of a placement-line, ie. its end point. For instance: when you draw more lines and one line you want to end up in the level of existing lines hover your mouse on the desired line (it will be dashed shed that will create a temporary intersected
lines and their intersection) and then move it to where you want to complete the intended line. See the picture below.
So start drawing with the mouse and at some point (item 4) when we want to end up in the vertical scale (for drawing items 1) move the cursor to the endpoint of point 1 and then shifting it down (then appearing auxiliary dashed lines) following the vertical dashed line While we mark the intersection on her second set in a vertical line and click the mouse.
Now we are confident that our 5 point within the vertical line in the direction of the line item 1 DUCS - Turning Dynamic UCS and the adhesive on a plane or surface of the body, while the included DUCS and clicking on the icon on the toolbar Origin UCS and then to position the cursor on any surface of the body, it automatically means the surface (hatched) and when clicking on it
UCS for ecological surface and positioning.
DYN - Turning Dynamic Input for information when drawing
LWT - Turning Lineweight, viewed thick lines. When this button is included then we have shown with their line thicknesses, if
you turn off all the lines the same thickness.
Last MODEL function is applied when the plot (we plan to print a drawing on paper) and enable / disable this button switches the
view between the Layout and Paper Model of a (model / paper).
When you look at MODEL LAYOUT, we may move within the framework of the drawing and zoom it, rotate and
When I go LAYOUT PAPER view we can not change anything other than attributes such as: components and the like.
In terms of layout we can use the buttons PAPER WINDOW determine the size of the framework in which to display the drawing and also after selection by interception, we can change the frame size.
