AutoCAD tutorials stape by stape for beginners with pdf



             2d course

In this tutorial we will see how to learn AutoCAD 2d  course in next few stapes. I mentioned this following stapes of AutoCAD is mostly helpful for beginners who starting the course. In next AutoCAD tutorials stape by stape we also see about AutoCAD 3d modelings. So let's get start for learning. 

In this article or tutorial we see first installation of AutoCAD.  Means how to we get student version of AutoCAD because the normal version of AutoCAD is costly in some cases it not affordable for everyone. 

recommend that you use student version of AutoCAD this swatware is free for 3 years for students only . 

STAPE 1 - 

Installment of Autodesk AutoCAD swatware swatware 

If you are student then you simply go to autodesks official website go to the students version section, create your own account as a student and the download the swatware.

If you non student then you simply go to autodesks official website or any shopping platform like amazon and buy affordable swatware. Or if you not afford purchase the swatware then you should try student version also.

After download the AutoCAD swatware the simple install in your system. 

Note that before try swatware you must check your system requirements.


Understanding of workspace

In AutoCAD there's by default three workspace are available. One for basic 2d , one for 3d, and one for sheet. 
If you want custom the workspace then you can create your custom workplaces. In AutoCAD software workplace is important role of this workspace is EASY to understand then you can DRAW the object without any obstruction.


UNITS is more important part for drawing and beginners. In AutoCAD we chose different units like architecture units , engineering units ect .

AutoCAD tutorials stape by stape 

If in case your dimensions are in feet or inches then you can choose the UNIT
You can also DRAW drowing in matrix like meter, millimeters ect .

Also you need to give decimal points .
You can call this cammand by using type in your keyboard 'UN' or in site menu bar . Also set the zoom in or zoom out by using letter in your keyboard 'Z'.


In AutoCAD software tutoral we are basically track the other object or end of other object manually but in this swatware we are having an tool named SNAP MODE

Now what is snap 

So defination will be here if in case the line end and I what contact to that previous end of line I will tern on snap too from here and it help me to find out others connection basically it highlight the other posible ends . 
You can call this tool by pressing keyboard ' f11 '

The other tool is polar tracking 
In this tool we can find out the angle of lines or any object. 

In some case we need to find the specifics the angle of the object for that it dificultad that find angle then simply you can call this tool by pressing the key on keyboard 'f10'


Ortho mode


Ortho is basically tool which you DRAW the object at straight and uniform at horizontal and vertical angle . 

This tool or cammand use for when you need to draw the object at one direction either horizontal vertical. 
As a beginners you must on this mode for EASY to handling AutoCAD.


The cammands of AutoCAD
So in this part of AutoCAD we are looking for the shortcuts which also called cammands. In AutoCAD software so many cammand are here . 

How cammand is work
The cammand is the one kind of shortcut for specific object modification like line , copy, mirror,array, move ect . So let's see 
Here I want copy an line 
So now have two options one is the copy tool is available in top menu baar and other I can put the latter on keyboard that is COPY or CO and press Enter It will active.
So cammand work this concept. 

After following that stapes you ready for drawing.

After this you simply can drawing without any problem of any problems arrived the you can comment us below. 

So in this tutorial we learned how AutoCAD tutorial stape by stape  are ready for new DRAWING for beginners with the help of above stapes . So this is about only 2d next we will learning 3d drawing.

Again if you have any problems or questions please contact me we will solve it together. 

So in this tutorial AutoCAD stape by stape we learn installment of Autodesk AutoCAD swatware. 

Then in secod stape  the workspace how we can make easy for handling AutoCAD.

After this we see how to select units 

And second last the objects tracking vectors that is SNAP mode and polar tracking.

And lastly we learned what is cammand and how we call cammand. 

How to import and export table or any other text AutoCAD to any other swatware

How to export and export table table in AutoCAD to any swatware

Here we are tolking about AutoCAD software which in table cammand. Here in table cammand is important thing in AutoCAd. In some case we having need to import table from other swatware like Microsoft. So how can we import and export this table lets see.

Topic for today will be import and export tables the reason of these lessons because the data of this kind found in tables is often share with others who may not be autocad users so you may need to move table data twin from your drawing to other applications and escape spreadsheets so that it can be view and edit by others.

important to export it's very important.

let us see first how to import something inside in terms of tables to import inside a drawing I will open next I'll spreadsheet blank page and let us make something very easy some data and just choose the cells you want to cop inside do ctrl C for copy and now if you go into autocad just to control V and control the size the font so for example anywhere that sells you just copied from Excel very easy to do the opposite it's also very easy and we need to create a table here let's make smaller table 5 by 5 create a table and we can put some data in our table doesn't matter what also so this kind of data and now if you want to copy into Excel caller commands called table exports.

choose your table and they the program will also so this kind of data and now if you a program with an M you want but with a coma the limited type of file so a CSV this is a very common type of

file and it can be read for most of the spreadsheet programs including Excel the only advantage is that this type of file does not retain autocar tables formatting so apart from that it's quite normal so just save it oh there is one it doesn't matter.

Now into Excel now just cleaning book so open it should be this one so we have your formatting here it is very easy there is one more possibility i will

close this file okay blank and i can create a link for example to the book here and putting two numbers for example these two i will save it with my desktop and i can call it cad for example

the matter save it and I can go ad to autocad i will create a new table let me create a new table can be the same and i can come in here and create a link to a cell ever couple of links and years but i will create a new excel data link i will call it something else be that it doesn't matter.

now I will browse for the file which is called cad and I can link to a range which was to be too okay review to be okay and okay i have my link here what happened what happens now is that I got this link to the Excel and if I changed something in my excel it will update it.

here so let us go again into my excel spreadsheet and okay you see if it is okay let me change for example this

value 26 and go into my autocad again so I did not save it sorry I need to save the file just breathe I need to save the file again so that it can be recognized okay then so data and

download from source so you see that the file was already read from from Excel and updated here so this is quite convenient because having this link to the Excel spreadsheet in fact you can and then excel is more powerful than the tables inside autocad so you can in fact have more complex things than in excel and opened for example share only result of certain areas of your spreadsheet into autocad and have these updates dynamic in real time.

How to apply ordinate dimensions in AutoCAD 2016 for beginners stape by stape

 How to allow ordinate dimensions in AutoCAD

Here in this tutorial we are looking for how to apply ordinate dimensions in AutoCAD software. Most of users having problems regarding this so lets find out how to apply ordinate dimensions.

the topic for today will be apply ordinate dimensions to show you this feature I've already created this job tree that you can see in your screen this rectangle and a couple of circles inside regarding these ordinate dimensions.

this is a different type from the other ones we've seen until now and for your knowledge in mechanical drafting these ordinate dimensions are used to maintain the courtesy of the machine parts by establishing an origin of the part this origin is is usually an easy way to locate features in the part such as machine board or to machine surfaces.

basically one example where this kind of dimensioning is very used are injection molds because besides all these things I've mentioned when we are pouring dimensions in drawing that had a lot of entities it will be almost impossible to understand what were the dimensions for so this is another way to dimension things in reference to something and with less entities because it will only put one line for dimension step to do in applying this ordinate dimensions it is to create a new origin and all the next dimensions will be in relation to these origin so I will say UCS.

we still haven't seen much about it but please retain that this UCS is something that allowed the user to create an origin where we want so you see I call UCS I have the origin connected to my cursor and I will apply .

I will not choose a specific location I will click with the mouse and as you may turn as you might understand this location if it was real work should be done on a specific location okay.

I will click somewhere around here and to the enter and now the origin is here so to apply these dimensions I can

come to to the regular quotation so in this list the ordinate or in the annotate menu again we have also the same menu and we have pollinate.

now we just need to click points because it will be all always in relation to this origin here so for example if I say a point zero zero it will apply the line from the origin it is too big and I need to change this before I need to modify because is very big I will say zero 0 .

see I can join and say this so here now I will call it again and in this example I could click around here and do something like that and below I will do exactly the same okay and this is done on a

horizontal way but but if it is on vertical I will do exactly the same just like this okay and basically this is what we intend to do with this ordinate for short that if I need now the origin on another place I could do it that's release I could do here and I could start a new dimension ordinate in

this case regarding this new origin these are just numbers they look for the current dimension at the moment that they are applied so this is very easy to use and it's another tool for you to add to your package of tools regarding dimensioning.

How to draw note with leader in AutoCAD stape by stape by adil inamdar

 How to add note with leaders in AutoCAD

In this tutorials we learn about how to add text or note with leader means text in AutoCAD. How we edit that leader stape by stape .

the topic for today will be out with a note with the leader so this is the topic also very easy to explain because inside annotate menu and besides all the other possibilities we've already seen to add dimensions and graphical entities to complement your drawing.

Leaders meaning in AutoCAD

we have also one entity called the leader that allow us to add notes or other type of information always with the idea to point to something and then being able to add a note number complementary information of several types.

basically these leaders can be assessed in two ways either by the manager that we can access through these leaders group and then calling this

arrow pointing down we can assess this dialog box or also by writing MLS and you'll get the same dialog box so in

this dialog box we are able to create different styles also with the same concept of the text or the dimensions and this is very similar so we just need to create a new style or modify new

style exactly the same thing we've seen for these dimensions or text as I mentioned we need to create this definition having an based one of the existent styles so continue and then we get this big box where among other things .

we can make the settings for a lot of parameters of these multi leaders.

but most of these are common to other things we've seen already so the type if it is straight spline or others at the color with the line type in line wait this is common to many things inside inside the program the type of area and size .

if we need a little break then regarding the structure we have these little points that allow us to define the max number of points of breakpoint to make this these entities this line so in this particular case we have two but we can define more this first and second angle allow us to constraint the angles to fix it values we can set also these landing distances which is this line

here we can have the scales defined or annotative scales and finally regarding the content we can have these we can have a definition for what we call the leader which is the text so it can be an intact and if it is an text it can be

edited by the normal processes but it can be a block or it can have no text then we have all the main options for the text and the text style the angle the color the the the height education and with yes or no with a frame around it and the connections if it is a horizontal attachment the vertical one and in case of a vertical we have these possibilities also to define.

so all of these definitions we can set the styles we can manage them here and say this is current or the other or whatever so current this one which allow me to delete this one that I was trying to make a definition and here we have a list of all the styles in use so when we are okay with these

definitions just say yes and we are able to create one leader the creation of us of the leader itself it's quite easy.

because we just need to define here which is the style that is current we can do it on the previous dialog box but just click on the option then we have a couple of possibilities down here that these options define basically this most of them the same things that we have defined on the settings. so I

don't think they are very important to see again but we can define this is important if the content is first or the landing first so if it is the content then you see that we have the text first.

but I don't want this I want the landing first or the arrow and now I don't have anything drawn but if I click a point you see the arrow is pointing to that think I've clicked and I can make all the other clicks I want if you remember inside the definitions I had the max point permitted lis finance - so I was able to do all two clicks one click two clicks and the landing appear immediately asking me now for the text so now I can say this is the text and close it so I've done a little I can have multiple styles as you know and it is no different from other

things with text inside which I can edit in many different ways but if I write down text edit I can select the text and because this is the finance being an M text entity so I can edit opening again the M text parameter so I can edit .

now and write down what I want and just close it after so I think it's very easy just to end and to summarize what we've seen these leaders are used to create notes pointing down for something the management of these leaders is done through styles which is very similar to the dimension style textiles and other things but basically in mainly these two and as you can see this is quite easy to edit and to change if needed for several reasons among them a mistake from the user side so again any help you may need so you know how to contact us through our email or through comment individuals and we can help you or we will help you in what we can regarding your questions.

How many types are dimension style in AutoCAD and how to edit dimensions style in AutoCAD stape by stapes

 Types of dimension and edit dimensions ¡

In this lecture we will se about how many types of dimension and how to edit them.

The topic for today will be then mentioning of non-orthogonal objects until now we've been seeing tutorials in the examples about work with linear dimensions.

but as you may understand we can do and we have that need to dimension also other types of objects like sort code archos and given lines.

but in other positions that not only in linear simple positions and to create those dimensions so to show you these possibilities as created this simple geometry so a polygon with six equal sides and the circle in the middle so let me start to show you what can we do with this.
so first we go to the Edit menu and you know already these dimensions group of commands so the first one I'd like to show you is inside so the linear is what we see until now so aligned and the align allow us to also pick two points as on the linear dimension but this time we'll measurr

point by point and not a line by the axis just to remember if we do the
aligning this exact same position so we've created this type of dimension okay so the line allows to put this kind
of dimension then we have other possibilities like the angular and the angular allow us to choose two lines for example.

let me let me explode this polygon again angular let me choose two lines and then according to the place I choose to place my dimension it will show me different angles okay so something like this very simple also to use we can put dimensions also radius and die and diameters so radius will also choose one circle or arc and then if we go inside we'll put the dimensional with this kind of look or if we go outside we point out from the center of the circle or the arc.
basically the same method for the diameter this particular case insid just a line and a narrow outside will do something like like something like this please note the symbol of diameter okay in the same for the radius because we are putting a dimension that should have this kind of notation we can have a different kind of dimension also for example for this kind of entity an arc.

and if we go there and use this Ark link so we can choose the arc and we can put this kind of dimension that will measure the length of the arc and put this symbol that basically wants to say that this the length of the arc so it is interesting also to use this kind of command.
we can put also a dimension like that we call a jogged dimension and the jogged dimension is it is something that we use if we need two dimensional arc or circle with centre is not in the drawing area and we have this particular kind of tool so job so we select the arc or circle now we can point out to the center of the arc of a circle so I can use these or i can use the other point i will maintain and use the center of this arc and if i use the center then I put the normal dimension okay if I use other point so for example this point now you see that I can make this kind of this kind of symbology and with this broken symbology for the dimension line.
I click will fix the text second click will allow me to fix the place to put this breaking symbology okay this is the job last I have another type of dimension I will put a linear one here you know sorry not a linear line dimension okay and I may need to force these extension lines to take another angle different from the 90 degrees there.
usually they they take okay and this is particularly used when we are working with a thematic drawings where the lines can can be at 30 or 60 degrees so I have
some commands for that and for example I can use these oblique okay where I can choose a dimension okay confirm .
I can give a break angle and i will say minus 60 okay so you see the dimension the lines of the dimension changed to this angle but now I don't have this text align with with the with the
extension lines so I can go there again and say in this particular case only for the text saying I want to choose this and I want to specify the angle that in this case should be 30 degrees so i can use this kind of notation okay so this is another possibility for two to use with linear dimensions or angular
dimensions to turn them or click on the angle you give i use this example .
isometric possibilities but you can use other kinds of angles but you may have specific situations where you want to have your dimension align with other particular in specific case so i hope these examples work clear enough to show you other possibilities then then the regular ones that we use with the linear

and more common uses for the dimensions.

Hope you get some halp thank for visiting here .

Dimension styles in AutoCAD 2020 | how to edit dimensions style stape by stape

Linear dimensions in AutoCAD

today is the linear dimensions theselinear dimensions are the most
common type of dimensions that you'll be using inside AutoCAD these dimensions infact are orthogonal items that measuret hewhite in the length of an object ortwo points that can be one object .

simply a distance that you want to
acquire the measurement and AutoCAD
provides three dimensions three

dimensioning tools for this purpose the linear want so you have linear continue

let's create a new one and yet so we have these rectangles here and

then we have the possibility to make the
dimensions inside is a notation under
the whole menu but the complete set of
tools .

then you have this group called
dimensions and now you have the linear
the linear has couple of possibilities.

but we will see only the linear which is the basic one and then inside here the continued in the baseline so the linear.

basically asked you for two points that can be something like this and you grab down and you put the dimension and you can do this as a no result of dimension

or the exact same command can do you can do a vertical possibility also so the program basically will tools according to the point to pick if it is a vertical or horizontal dimension.

but you can work with the two other possibilities which are to continue that after you create a linear dimension you click in continue and then it will grab the last point picked I will recreate it. again just to be correct so linear if you click one point second point you put the dimension and now if you go to continue so it will use the last point and just ask for a new one and it will continue until you are ok with the command ok you have another possibility which is use the baseline so i will restart again so delete these dimensions and notate put one linear dimension .

and now choose baseline in the baseline uses the first point as start for all the dimensions so these are the three possibilities to create linear dimensions. anyway I want to talk you about another topic important especially whenyou have this kind of dimensioning thebaseline where the space between the dimensionsin this gate is small . Then I will use something called dim space.

use these as base dimension and say that i want to space these ones confirm an intro value.

and they are equally spaced according to the value I've given both ate so you'll get this kind of look after this is done.

How to create and edit dimensions style in AutoCAD software | tutoral stape by stape

How to change and edit dimensions style

Today will we tolking about how you can edit and change style of dimensions in AutoCAD software. Know all about setting of dimensions. Basic setting of dimension for beginners

today will be how to create a dimension style so dimension styles are very similar to textiles and they determine the look of your dimensions and as well the size of the dimensioning features such as text and arrows how can we create a noose and a new style.

you have two ways basically we can come to these annotate menu and then

in this group of commands dimensions you can click in the arrow and you get this dialog box that is called dimension

style manager it's option you can do just D enter and you get the same dialog box so when you reach here you can make several things you have two styles by by default in AutoCAD. so the ISO 25 and under standard and you can create new styles you can modify one of of the existent .

ones if you have more you can override parameters or settings in one style and you can for example compare one style with the other and get all the differences okay after and this is similar to other things inside of AutoCAD you can and you should have one dimensional style that is active so you say one of the styles we have in your list set current so let us do one new

style so I will give it a name get soft I can start with one of the styles that.

I have already done so I will start with the settings that this style has so for example ISO 25 I can do it this style as an annotative okay you you've seen already.

what is annotated and you can use all the settings for all types of dimensions

or for one particular type of dimension okay let us say all dimensions and you get this big dialog box where you'll make definition of everything so long as we change the definitions we'll get an update kind of

a preview in this graphic window so the first thing you should notice is about primary units okay you can choose a format for the units you can choose the precision . the precision or the decimal places you have this is not active we can choose the the separator of the

integral side for the decimal side the round off okay we can make this kind of application we can include a prefix or suffix on the dimensions for example put an R in this and you get all of them have this you can apply a scale which is important in in several cases especially probably in layouts you can suppress the zeroes on the left or on the right and you can have more sub units factor and suffixes in particular for the angular dimensions we can make the same definition besides we can choose to have active alternate units or not and if you choose to have them on then you will display. besides the primary ones you can display these alternate units and you can use this for example in terms of millimeters

and inches which is the most common use so you'll get the same configurations okay the only thing different is about the placement of these units after or below the primary units. then we jump for the general look of the dimensions so lines color line type line weight it's

easy so you understand this these terms extend beyond six is something that we've seen in the previous lesson base line spacing the same and we can suppress for example one dimension line from one side or the other the same configuration for the extension lines and suppress it or not extend beyond dimension lines we've seen that offset from origin and fix-it length for the extension lines which is interesting also then symbols and arrows we can change the look of the arrows being the first second or if you have one leader the size of the arrow we can have a center mark with lines with marks or anything and in case of F this for the mark you can choose the size on the dimension break which is something that we shall did not see we can set the size of this break and for the arc length symbol we can have some different possibilities this particular case is also a particular. a type of dimension so job dimension and we can set the angle for the symbol of job and this height factor for the same for the same dimension then the text and the text is not letters the the text as

we've seen the previous lesson it's it's the the numbers or the combination of numbers and letters that you have on the dimension so again use the textile and we've seen already. and the offset from dimension line which is the gap that the numbers the text is above the dimension line in the alignment horizontal the line width what is the textile the color if we have the fuel color not the height in case of fractions and we can draw a frame around the dimension then the placement of the text and we have a couple of possibilities here when it's vertical we can place it like this when it's horizontal again Center it but you can do it something like that or something like that okay a lot of possibilities and the direction that it may be seen left to right or right to left .

dimension or ISO standard so you have a couple of possibilities here also then the feet and in this particular case especially when we have very tight situations so if there is not enough room to place both texts and arrows we can have these possibilities and for example to suppress the the arrows the placement when it's not in the image default position so we have these possibilities also.

and the scale for the dimension we can use a scale also it's interesting this possibility here as a fine tuning because we can have a manual a manual manual replacement of the text so if you like it. last we have the tolerances and we can make also a couple of definitions for the tolerances like the method to apply the tolerance I have this turn it off because tolerance is a theme that has many variables and it's a theme by itself so it's complex to explain

everything on short lesson like this one so again the precision the upper and lower values the scaling the scaling for the height in terms of vertical position where it is placed the alignments and also the suppression of zeros for the leading and trailing situations and we can have also these alternate units tolerances that because we can have both of the unities displayed on the screen so after all of all these settings are done just will be okay you'll get a new style here and you can say this is set current so and it will be added to your list okay and then you can use all these settings to manage the dimension styles.

So hope you get this all thanks for joining
