Save your life with the SPHERE command in AutoCAD

Nothing is going banana yet. The title of this post is referring to a pain most of you must have had after the last experiment

Here is the problem.

We have recently learned how to use the 3Drotate command, and the SWEEP command. And we were able to build the following 3D object in AutoCAD

sweep-AutoCAD

But if you look at the corners of the object, we still have some parts we are not happy with

sphere-command

How do we actually solve this issue.

Use a sphere with a radius equal to the base radius of the many cylinders forming the image above to solve the open-corner issue.

sphere-command

After placing these spheres at each one of the 8 corners of the main object, Use the UNION command to add all up together, and you should end up with the following image.
