Creating Scaled Borders for LibreCAD

The Base drawing – scaled to create the others.

I have created scaled borders for North American letter size paper and am making them available for download. The problem with scaling drawings is it is relatively easy to scale the borders, but the hassle comes with scaling the dimension text and arrows. By creating

LibreCAD Manuals and Some Good LibreCAD Links

A long time viewer of my LibreCAD videos and one of the first people to subscribe to this site sent me an e-mail this weekend informing me of two manuals available for LibreCAD. In addition I am providing some links to some good sites that contain forums about LibreCAD.

The links to the manuals are

LibreCAD – Hatching Revisited – Hatching Floor Plans

A Section of Hatch Revisited Drawing

I received an e-mail request for help concerning CAD. The easiest way to answer what I think is giving him problems was to create a drawing showing the “work-around” for the difficulty. Since I have one person having problems I decided I must not have been clear in

LIbreCAD – Testing Line Widths & Line Types

US_L:_Border_TEST_X1

I use LibreCAD quite a bit to produce drawings for this blog. I do not use it very often to print out drawings and I got curious about a few things.For example: Does the line with change when a drawing is plotted at a different plot scales? Does the spacing within a line

Graphical Construction – A Circle Tangent to two lines.

A scene from the Video

A new graphical construction video was posted tonight. This shows how to make a circle that is tangent to two lines. Things are starting to get a little more complicated now and we will be using some of the techniques we have already learned to be able to draw

A new LibreCAD tutorial – toolbars and the divide function.

I am self taught on LibreCAD although I have used other CAD programs. I have learned some things since the first tutorials that can save some keyclicks. I think I have one more tutorial coming on these miscellaneous functions and then I will spend some time creating some blocks and show as much about the

A LibreCAD tutorial – miscellaneous topics part 1

Tonight I posted a new YouTube video – Another LibreCAD tutorial. This one cleans up a mistake I made earlier and explains a button that can cause some problems with the hatch function and probably has a bug associated with it in relation to the line types.

I also explicitly explain some of the tool
