What are your favourite AutoCAD shortcuts?
Hello CAD Answers, what are your most favorite commands in AutoCAD?
What are the most helpful ones?
Here are my favourites:
MIRROR – Creates a mirrored copy of selected objects.
TRIM – Trims objects to meet the edges of other objects
EXPLODE – Breaks a compound object into its component objects
COPY – Copies objects a specified distance in a specified direction
I find they come in very handy when doing repetitive tasks.
The commands you mentioned are quite helpful and used everyday but they are so basic that I do not think that they are my favorite, I’d think I’d be more in love with other commands such as the :
Purge – Just because it removes all the unused clutter in my work area and the workspace looks much cleaner after using it
SmartPurger– Another Clean up tool that is a little bit more neat and efficient
OverKill – Sometimes but be careful it sometimes merges objects you do not want to get merged
Audit – to Fix all that nasty errors
There are a few more on my list actually 😀
I’ll post again tomorrow, I realized there’s just so much more to it 😀
Hey guys, you might want to check out the full commands list here on CAD Answers in another thread:
Have fun 🙂
My best discovery so far is that commands can have aliases, for example I used to type CO for Copy, a Major helpful tip is that you can actually change the command’s Alias (The “CO” Part), I changed it to only C
Here’s how you can do it:
Good luck guys
