by Tutorial45

Let’s go back in time a little today with this simple exercise for the only purpose of getting a bit of ego boost. Today’s challenge is way easier than the two previous ones, so this should be a quick one.

Now, we are going to look at the CHAMFER command and play with the UCS command a little bit more than we did in the past days.

Here is the object to replicate in this challenge, pretty quick one huh!?


We have been in a more difficult situation in the past!


Remember you can do it your own way, but here is how I will suggest you do it.

Start with the following. Four lines, you have all dimensions, pretty easy


Then, use a line to close the object. You do not need to know the length of the red line, just use those two points to hook its ends up to.


Now use the CHAMFER command on the left upper corner. The Chamfer distances are 33 x 33 units.

We have made extensive use of the UCS command earlier. Move the UCS to the position shown on the picture below, that will allow you to get the circles we are trying to create at their right positions.


After Getting the UCS at the position shown above, the center of the bigger circle will be at the point of coordinates (36,36) and the center of the small circle will be at the point of coordinates (84,20).
