Good evening,
Ive been looking at solving an issue I have by using AutoCad, what Im looking at doing is drawing a circle with a radius of 40mm, go back to the centre go forward 30mm and then draw a 20mm line, then return back to the centre turn 2 degrees and do the same again.

Ive learnt that I can use an array to do this, but found it to be hard to replicate what Im trying to achive.

Does anyone know of website with common commands in Autocad for moving the pen about and drawing lines?

Thanks in advance :-)

you should look into the object snap commands used throughout AutoCAD, these snaps will provide the tools to lock where you start and/or stop certain items.
