Punched-out region question

451 Views, 7 Replies

Good morning, all.

 

I've never tried this in AutoCAD before, so that is why I've come to the experts here for help. I would like to create a simple rectangular area with a circle in its center. When this area is hatched, the circle is hollowed out. Furthermore, I'd like to have this to insert into a block for stretch action manipulation. Is this possible with AutoCAD 2010?

 

Thank you all.

Hi,

 

>> I feel that you misunderstand what I am asking about.

if so then sorry, but I give it an additional try.

If that is also wrong, then at least it helps that you can then describe what you don't like here.

Hi,

 

should be possible, haven't you tried it?

I have tried the Region command, but only for a few moments. And each time I tried, the command created two regions (the rectangle, and the circle). These remained separate to themselves; I could not figure out how to combine them, especially since the two elements do not intersect at any point.

 

Thank you.

Don't use region, use command _RECTANG for rectangle as polyline, then draw a circle and last but not least create the hatch.

Pardon me, sir, but I feel that you misunderstand what I am asking about.

 

I need to display a solidly filled rectangle area, and if the rectangle was a piece of paper, the circle would be a punched-out hole in its center. Wipeouts can do this, but only for linear polylines (no arcs). That is why I am asking about regions.

Dear Mr. Neswadba,

 

I took a look at your file. Thank you for it. I managed to get close to what you had before I began this thread. It appeared that I was not properly grabbing points & handling parameters when I dealt with the hatching. I have now accepted your thread as the solution, and you have my thanks.

(A note to User sancdub: you were also on the same track as Mr. Neswadba and I. Thank you for your input also.)
