The topic today: How to use the Donut command in AutoCAD 2023?
AutoCAD 2023, the industry-leading CAD software, offers extensive drawing tools for architects, engineers, and designers. Among these tools, the DONUT command is a versatile feature, allowing users to create rings and circular objects efficiently. This blog post will provide a step-by-step guide on how to use the DONUT command in AutoCAD 2023, enabling you to maximize your productivity when working on complex CAD projects.
Step 1: Launch the DONUT command
To use the DONUT command in AutoCAD 2023, type “DONUT” in the command line and press Enter. Alternatively, you can access it using the Draw toolbar by selecting the “donut” icon.
Step 2: Set the inner and outer diameter
AutoCAD will prompt you to specify the inside diameter of the circular object. Type the desired value and press Enter. Next, you’ll be prompted to set the outside diameter of the object. Input the desired value and press Enter again.
Tip: To create a solid circle, set the inside diameter to 0.
Step 3: Specify the insertion point
AutoCAD will now ask you to specify the center point of the donut. You can click on the desired location in your drawing, or enter the X, Y, and Z coordinates manually.
Step 4: Create additional rings (optional)
To create multiple rings or circular objects, simply repeat Steps 2 and 3. You can either place the additional rings in different locations or use the same center point for a concentric effect.
Step 5: Modify ring properties (optional)
If needed, you can modify the properties of your rings, such as color, linetype, or line weight, using the Properties palette. To access it, right-click on the ring, and select “Properties” from the context menu.
With the DONUT command in AutoCAD 2023, you can quickly create rings and circular objects, enhancing your design capabilities when working on CAD projects. By mastering this powerful tool, you will not only save time but also increase the accuracy and quality of your drawings. Keep practicing and exploring other AutoCAD commands to broaden your skillset, boost productivity, and become a professional AutoCAD user.
