Learn AutoCAD Basics: DAY 17

by Tutorial45

Just looking at the image below makes me happy, and I bet you will understand this after completing the challenge below.

As a reminder, I would like to give you the following tips, just in case you need it.

  • You need to have mastered the use of the MIRROR command. Using it will save you a headache. After creating those arcs, use the  MIRROR command to create a mirrored copy on the other side. The red lines can serve as a midline for your MIRROR.
  • To create the arcs, you need to use the feature Tan Tan Radius of the CIRCLE command. If this is the first time you hear about this, you should go and check it now.

Hi,
It went well it went actually quicker than i expected. My only question is where the middle fillets are i can’t find the distance between the horizontal parallel lines. (i used the radius of the small circle to offset from the centre line.
