In this set of tutorials, we'll take a step-by-step approach to drawing a lumber construction detail. We'll start from the ground up and begin with the foundation. We'll learn how to use Polylines and Hatching to get the foundation in place. Next, we'll draw the sill plate and studs included in the detail. While we draw each element in the detail, we'll be sure to manage our Linetypes, Layers, and Hatch Patterns accordingly in order to create a well-organized drawing. Finally, we'll add some text and leaders to reinforce the graphic components of our drawing. By the end of this tutorial, you'll have a solid understanding of how to draw a simple lumber-construction detail using mainly Polylines and Hatch Patterns. You'll also learn to create a drawing that is well-organized, detailed, and professional. Software required: AutoCAD 2014.
