Polygon

Toolbar: Draw 2D > Polygon

Menu: Insert > Polygon

Keyboard: POLYGON

Alias: POL

Experience Level: Intermediate

Draws polygons with a specified number of sides. A polygon is created from a polyline entity. The default width of the polygon is specified with the PLINEWID system variable, but you can change the width when you draw a polygon.

Polygon: Multiple Width of line <Number of sides> <5>: To draw a polygon using the current setting for the number of sides, press Enter, or enter a new value. To draw multiple polygons, choose Multiple. To specify the width of the lines in the polygon, choose Width.

Specify by: Edge <Center of polygon>: Select the center of the polygon. To specify the location of the first edge of the polygon, choose Edge.

To draw a polygon by specifying the center

 

 

  1. Select the center of the polygon.
  2. Select the length between the center and a vertex point.

Result.

Choose Center.

Specify by: Side <Select vertex point>: To draw a polygon by specifying the length between the center point and a vertex, select the vertex point. Selecting a vertex point also defines the rotation of the polygon. To draw a polygon by specifying the length between the center point and the side, choose Side.

To draw a polygon by specifying the length of the edge

 

 

  1. Select the first point of an edge on the polygon.
  2. Select the endpoint of an edge on the polygon.

Result.

Choose Edge.

First endpoint of edge: Select the first point of the edge.

Second endpoint of edge: Select the endpoint of the edge.

To draw multiple polygons

Choose Multiple.

Polygon: Width of line <Number of sides> <5>: To draw a polygon using the current setting for the number of sides, press Enter, or enter a new value. To specify the width of lines in the polygon, choose Width.

Specify by: Edge <Center of polygon>: To draw a polygon by specifying the length between the center point and a vertex, select the vertex point. To draw a polygon by specifying the length between two vertices, choose Edge.

Specify by: Side <Select vertex point>: To draw a polygon by specifying the length between the center point and a vertex, select the vertex point. Selecting a vertex point also defines the rotation of the polygon. To draw a polygon by specifying the length between the center point and the side, choose Side.

Center of polygon: Select the center point of the next polygon. Continue to draw identical polygons by selecting the center point for each polygon. To end the command, press Enter.

To specify the width of lines

Choose Width.

Default polyline width <0.5000>: To accept the current setting for the line width, press Enter, or enter a new value.

Polygon: Multiple Width of line <Number of sides> <5>: To draw a polygon using the current setting for the number of sides, press Enter, or enter a new value. To draw multiple polygons, choose Multiple. To change the width of the lines in the polygon, choose Width.
