Layer 2: The Dashed lines
Layer 3: The centerline
Layer 4: HATCH pattern

Hey. Thanks for this series of Exercises. I did not know where to start when I decided to learn how to use AutoCAD. But right after these sessions, I was able to handle my trainning all by myself.
Keep up the good Work.
Thanks again
