HOW IS AN ARCHITECTURAL LAYOUT PLAN CREATED IN AUTOCAD?

(up-next)

SETTING-UP DRAWING UNITS & CREATING LAYERS

If you don’t have a preset template to start with, you’ll need to configure certain parameters before you start sketching. Set the UNITS to the appropriate system for your drawing, either English or metric (Type on command line: UN “Unit” hit spacebar or enter and Pop Window will appear). After you’ve made these changes, you’ll need to establish a layer for your drawing, such as a door, a wall, or a dimension, annotation and text (Type on command line: LA “Layer” hit spacebar or enter and dialog window will appear).

MODIFIYING DIMENSION STYLE

Dimension style can be amended in accordance with industry standards; nevertheless, most businesses have already established a proper style for dimension as well as text styles. The height of specific text, annotations/labels, and titles must all be configured, and they differ from one another. (On the command line, type D “DIMSTYLE” Pop Window will emerge if you press the spacebar or enter).

CREATING GRID & DIMENSION

Set your current layer to the layer style you assigned for grid lines and dimension. In sketching, the grid acts as a guide. (Type XL XLINE “Construction Line” on the command line, then press spacebar or enter to begin generating a vertical or horizontal construction line.) After you’ve drawn the gridlines and borders, add a dimension to serve as a visual guide. (On the command line, type DLI “Dimension Linear”, then press the spacebar or enter.)

CREATING COLUMN & EXTERIOR/INTERIOR WALL

Set your current layer to the layer style you set for column when you generated the drawing, then change the layer to wall layer and begin sketching the exterior and interior walls. If you already know how to draw, you may experiment with numerous commands such as line, polyline, rectangle, polygon, multiline, and so on.

ADDING DOORS & WINDOWS

Set your current layer to a layer style you specified for doors and windows, and then begin creating doors and windows. If you already have a door and window block or dynamic block, it will be a huge advantage in finishing your drawing.

ADDING PLUMBING FIXTURES, COUNTERTOP & NICHE

Set your current layer to a layer style you specified for fixtures. Similarly, windows and doors It would be a big help to finish your drawing if you already have prepared block and dynamic blocks for fixtures and furnace.

ADDING TEXT & ANNOTATION

Set your current layer to a layer style you specified for text and annotation. This is the section where you add more fantastic representation to your drawing by labeling and distinguishing its room, resulting in a more realistic presentation.

ADDING TILE LAYOUT FLOOR FINISH

Set your current layer to a layer style you specified for finishing. A simple grid pattern for your floor finish, in addition to labeling and annotation, would be a fantastic touch to further elaborate your drawing. (up next)
