Rotating Objects
Two tips on rotating objects arrived this month. In the first, the goal is to rotate sketched lines so they become orthographic lines. Jim Himes sent Orthographic Lines (Tip #2054), which snaps a line to one of the 90-degree quadrants with the base point for rotation being one of the existing end points. Load the LSP file, then type OL at the AutoCAD Command line. Select the lines to be rotated (use Windows to select a large group), and when selections are finished, each line will highlight one at a time with an opportunity to select the end point for the rotation edit. This utility lets you quickly sketch an outline of something and then fix it up, a real time-saver for quick sketch artists!
