 Command to change position of
endpoints
 TRIM, EXTEND, LENGTHEN, GRIP & JOIN
 Command to mark/measure linears &
curves
 POINT, DIVIDE & MEASURE
 Use of grips
 STRETCH, MOVE, ROTATE, COPY, SCALE &

Modify & Construct Commands


 DIST – measures the distance and angle
between two points
 AREA (AA) – calculates the and perimeter
of objects or of defined areas
 MASSPROP (MO) – calculates and displays
the mass properties of regions or
solids
 LIST (LI) – displays database information
for selected objects
 ID – displays the coordinate values of a
location
Inquiry commands
A. Advantages of LAYERS
 easy selecting
 selective printing
 control of regeneration
 easy editing
B. Capabilities of LAYERS
 OFF – invisibility
 FREEZE – same effect as OFF but it is to improve
object selection and lessen time to REGEN the
drawing
 LOCK – visible in the drawing but cannot edit
 Plot/No Plot – layered objects cannot be printed
or plotted. It is useful for reference lines.

lineweight, plot style control
MENU COMMAND DESCRIPTION
Linear DLI Measures a straight line which are
vertical & horizontal only
Aligned DAL Measures a linear dimension which is
parallel to the origin points of the line.
Ordinate DOR Dimension showing a X or Y ordinate
from a given origin
Radius DRA Measures radius of circles and arcs
Diameter DDI Measures diameter of circles and arcs
Angular DAN Measure angles
Arc Length DAR Creates arc length dimension.

MENU COMMAN DESCRIPTION
D
Jogged DJO Measures the radius of object with the
radius symbol at the text display
Baseline DBA Creates measurement from the same
origin
Continue DCO Series of continued measurements
Leader LE Creates annotation & leader line that
visually links the text to object
Tolerance TOL Creates a geometric tolerance dim.
Center DCE Indicates center points of circle and arcs
mark
Quick QDIM Creates dimension arrangements by
Dimensions selecting multiple objects at one time.
