Create a 2D Site Plan
In this tutorial you will create a 2D Site Plan drawing (see Fig. 1.1), which will be used at the next step tutorial,
to develop the 3D Terrain for the ModelHouse 2190 project.
You will design first the Site Area, which is the rectangle polyline (S1-S2-S3-S4-S1)- (see Fig. 1.2) with dimensions 32500 mm x 30500 mm.
(In AutoCAD - Options - User Preferences - set the drawing units to Millimeters).
As shown in Fig. 1.2, the dimensions will be S1S2=32500 mm, and S1S4=30500 mm).
Create a new layer
Before you create the rectangle , you will create a new layer with the name L-Site-Area, to use it as the layer name of the rectangle polyline (S1-S2-S3-S4-S1).
To do this :
Click to see
On the Ribbon -->click the Home tab --> on the Layers panel -->click the Layer Properties icon,
the Layer Properties Manager will open.
Right click on the right side of the opened panel and choose , from the drop down menu New Layer.
For the name type L-House-Deck, for the color choose Magenta , for the lineweight choose 0.50, and
make the layer L-Site-Area the current layer of your drawing, (right click on the Layer and choose 'current' ),
and then close the opened Layer Properties Manager panel .
