Creating complex entities

With progeCAD ® , complex entities include polylines (including rectangles and polygons), spline curves, donuts, and planes. In addition, progeCAD includes tools for adding hatching to your drawings.

This chapter explains how to create complex entities using the different ways that you can start the drawing command for each, including how to:

Use menu commands on the Draw menu.

Use the tools on the Draw toolbar.

Type commands in the command bar.
  1. When you type a drawing command or select a tool, the program prompts you to enter coordinate points, such as endpoints or insertion points. As you draw, the program displays a context-sensitive prompt box with appropriate additional options for the type of entity you are drawing.
  2. After you create complex entities, you can modify them using the entity-modification tools. Several of these entity types require special editing commands.
