Promine AutoCAD Tip of the Week: LAYER STATES

Eva Dierkes

This week we will see how to create layer states. Often times, you find yourself freezing or turning off the same layers to complete specific tasks. This tool is very useful when you want to make these tasks more efficient. The Layer states allow you to save the conditions of the layers, such as on, frozen or current, and restore them through the layer states manager dialog box.

Promine AutoCAD Tip of the Week: HELICAL POLYLINES

Eva Dierkes

This week’s AutoCAD tip of the week covers the creation of helical 3D polylines in AutoCAD. The generation of helical polylines is helpful when drawing helical ramps and in many other applications. Helical polylines can be created by first using the HELIX command to create a helix object with a given radius, height and number of turns. The helix object can then be converted into a helical polyline through the use of the PEDIT command; This command will ask for a number indicating the precision of the polyline to be created and can generate polylines with extremely high numbers of points if a large number is entered.

Promine AutoCAD Tip of the Week: THE BLOCK Command

Luis Montiel Petro

This week’s AutoCAD tip of the week covers a useful command to generate blocks in AutoCAD. Using the BLOCK command, you can create blocks from objects in your drawing. You can specify block properties as base point, objects, behavior, units and description. This block can be later integrated to the Library module of Promine to be used in your different layers/drawings.
