Arraying entities

You can copy an entity in a rectangular or polar (circular) pattern, creating an array. For a rectangular array, you control the number of copies in the array by specifying the number of rows and columns. You also specify the distance between each row and column. For a polar array, you control the number of copies that compose the array and whether to rotate the copies.

To create a polar array

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Modify > Array.
    • On the Modify toolbar, click the Array tool ().
    • Type array and then press Enter.
  2. Select the entities, and then press Enter.
  3. In the prompt box, choose Polar.
  4. Specify the center point of the array.
  5. Specify the number of items to array, including the original selection set.
  6. Specify the angle the array is to fill, from 0 to 360 degrees.
  7. The default setting for the angle is 360 degrees. Positive values create the array in a counterclockwise direction; negative values create the array in a clockwise direction.
  8. In the prompt box, choose one of the following:
    • Yes, Rotate Entities – rotates entities as they are arrayed.
    • No, Do Not Rotate – retains the original orientation of each copy as it is arrayed.

 

To create a polar array, select the entity to copy (A), specify the center point of the array (B), and then specify the number of items to array, the angle the array is to fill, and whether to rotate the items.

To create a rectangular array

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Modify > Array.
    • On the Modify toolbar, click the Array tool ().
    • Type array and then press Enter.
  2. Select the entities, and then press Enter.
  3. In the prompt box, choose Rectangular.
  4. Type the number of rows.
  5. Type the number of columns.
  6. Specify the distance between the rows.
  7. Specify the distance between the columns.

 

To create a rectangular array, select the entity to copy (A), type the number of rows and columns, and then specify the distance between each row (B) and column (C).
