ProgeCAD 2006 – Drawing accurately

October 7th, 2005 Leave a comment Go to comments

When you create a manual drawing, ensuring accuracy typically requires a lot of measuring and rechecking. By contrast, ProgeCAD offers a number of drawing aids that ensure accuracy from the start.
For example, you create and modify entities based on an underlying Cartesian coordinate system. Every location in the drawing has its own x,y,z-coordinates. You can also display a grid as a visual reference to your coordinate system.


Settings such as snap and entity snap allow you to draw accurately without specifying coordinates. The snap setting forces the selected points to adhere to the grid increment or to any other increment you set. Entity snaps let you snap to precise geometric points on existing entities—for example, the endpoint of a line or the center of a circle. Another setting, orthogonal, constrains lines so that they are drawn parallel to the vertical and horizontal axes.
