Thanks again to all of you that have participated this AutoCAD Design Challenge. I hope you learned something from the first solution that I posted. It was certainly a joint effort! Some key click-savers in that solution included:
Now, let’s take a look at another solution. View video.
Offset 2 <enter> pick pick <enter> (Offset the polyline 2 units to the outside. Selecting it from the toolbar/ribbon saves an <enter> - 6)
pick M <enter> pick pick (Pick the inside polyline and then launch the Move command… picking first saves an extra enter because you don’t have to end the selection set - 5)
pick pick S <enter> pick pick (Stretch the top arc down. Again, picking first saves an <enter> - 6)
pick pick S <enter> pick pick (Stretch the right arc toward the left - 6)
pick Erase (Picking first and choosing the Erase button from the toolbar/palette saves 2 clicks! - 2)
If I counted correctly, it’s 25 picks, clicks, and keystrokes! Nice solution!
