Today we will learn how to use one of the 2D Editing tools in Autocad and that is Stretch. This tool is little complicated for new beginners and that’s why to let’s learn how to use it.
Stretch tool can be found Home tab.
To learn how Stretch tool working we need to draw some enclosed object. As we already know how LINE tool working we will use it to draw some rectangle.
You can ask why we are not using Polyline or Rectangle tool to draw a rectangle? That’s because we need to unjoined object. If we will draw with Polyline all lines we are joined.
Draw Quadro 10 to 10
Now we have a closed but unjoined object.
Ok, now we decide that our rectangle must bu 15 widths and 10 height. To solve our problem we will use Stretch tool.
Let’s call Stretch tool and select some sides of rectangle
After select hit Enter to confirm selection.
In the next step you need select some point on object. After that you can move your cursor and you will see that your rectangle stretching.
Here I show an example in simple object. But in situation when we draw some hard to draw object it can help us very well.
