List of Autocad Commands

 

F1
This function key opens the AutoCAD Help window. This allows the user to seek help online if there are any operational problems with this software. If the user works offline rather than pressing this key, all the functionality of this software will be opened in PDF format.


F2
Opens a pop-up screen showing the command line at the bottom of this key. This command is useful for users who have trouble viewing the command window at the bottom of the screen.


F3
This command automatically activates the O snap feature of the AutoCAD. The Snap feature of this software helps you to draw your map accurately. This allows you to move your object to a certain point when you make any point. For example, a user can select two points on a line, such as the center of a circle. If you press again, the main software exits this command.


F4 
Opens a snap feature when working in these 3 dimensions. This command allows you to determine the specific location of the body.


F5
ISOPLANE is a plane with an angle of 30 degrees from the horizon. You can create any map in ISOPLANE using this shortcut key. If the snap style is set to isometric, the ortho mode will use the appropriate print pair from 30, 90, and 150 degrees. By pressing this command again, you can switch between the top, right and left three ISO planes.


F6
This function key turns on or off the dynamic UCS. UCS is a user interaction system that the user can define according to his needs. When this command is not available for work before 2007, the 3D user must create a new coordinate system every time they can change their map view. 


F7
This function key displays the grids on your AutoCAD map. The grid system allows the user to re-design the hap so he can focus on his design. They can disable the visibility of the grid by pressing this key again. The user changes his gaze when operating in the AutoCAD’s isometric mode by changing isometric aircraft. This allows them to move the view relative to the 2D isometric object.


F8
This command turns on or off the ORTHO mode. This method is used when the user specifies an angle or distance using two points using the pointing device. Using this mode the cursor movement can be controlled in a horizontal or vertical direction relative to the user coordinate system.


F9
This key turns on or off the Snap Grid. Grids are a rectangular form of the AutoCAD point-like structure that covers the entire XY plane of the user interaction system. Using the grid in AutoCAD is like using grid paper under your graph. This allows users to align objects and visualize distances between them. Using this key you can easily slip into a rectangular grid and make your drawing easier and more efficient.


F10
F10 Function Key Allows the user to use the Poll Tracking option of the AutoCAD software. The Polar Snapping command limits your cursor movement to specific increments with polar angles. Polar tracking shows temporary alignment paths defined by the polar angles you specified earlier. It also provides additional alignment in the upper and lower directions. This command is useful when working with objects with more than one different orientation when one part of the object rotates 45 degrees with the other. The ORTHO command automatically stops when working with this command.


F11
This key allows the object to use the snap tracking command. Object Snap Allows the user to paste the location of a particular object when you select a point. It can be used with other commands to draw your design more precisely. It is important to dictate that you will never be able to draw accurately without it. Some designers always use the object snap tracking command in motion and never turn it off.


F12
This command allows you to use the dynamic input command of this software. Dynamic Input Provides user cursor input, dimensional input, and dynamic triggers. When you right-click after selecting Dynamic Input, you can select any input to suit your need. Using this you can provide dimensional inputs beside your cursor instead of specifying a command line.
 

L

It is used to draw simple lines. For horizontal or vertical lines select ortho mode.  By using the coordinate method we can draw lines.

 

PL

It is used to draw polylines.  Again for horizontal or vertical lines select ortho mode. This is similar to line command but the difference is all of the lines are considered into a single object.

 

C

This command is used to draw circles.  We can draw circles by using radius or diameter. We can also draw a circle by three-point or two-point.

 

REC

This command in AutoCAD is used to draw rectangles.  We can draw rectangles by using length and width method or area and length or width method.

 

POL

This command is used to draw polygons starting with a minimum of three sides to a maximum of 1024 sides.

 

Ellipse

This is used to draw an ellipse with a major and minor axis. 

 

Arc

It is used to draw arcs. Arc is a part of the circle so far creating arcs we can give radius or diameter. We can draw arcs from the start, center, end or center, start, end. 

 

Xline

This is used to draw infinite lines.  We can trim an infinite line. This is also similar to an ordinary line after trimming. 

 

CO

This command is used to copy objects.  After copying an object we can paste the object multiple times. In Autocad, we can also use Ctrl + C.

 

F

It is used to add rounded corners to the edges for a selected geometry.  We can fillet lines, circles, or rectangles.  The rounded corners are called as fillets.

 

CHA

It is used for adding slanting edges to the corners of the geometry.  We can use chamfer for lines and rectangles. The edges after slanting can be called as a chamfer.


SC

This command is used to change the object scale. We can increase or decrease the scale of an object.

 

Array

It is used to draw a rectangular or polar array.
