AutoCAD 2012 Copy Tool with Array option

As seen in the previous tip, in AutoCAD 2012 gives you the option to array objects while in the middle of the COPY command. I previously showed how to array a specific number of copies with the “fit” option.

Now here’s how to do the basic array option in the COPY command. This willallow yoyu to specify the number of copies to array and the distance between them.









To do this:

  • COPY <enter>
  • Select objects <enter>
  • Specify Base Point
  • A <enter> for array
  • Specify the number of copies to array <enter>
  • Pick the end point to specify the distance between the copies
