An autocad drawing can be refereed to a graph paper on which every point and location have x y and z values, these values are called coordinates. these coordinates are used to mention the locations in geographical drawings.in autocad there are several ways to mention these coordinates in the drawing. i will tell you some of them. the location of cursor, in other words cursor coordinate values are shown in the lower left corner of autocad window. and can be switched on or off by simply clicking on lower right corner menue and selecting coordinates.so now let me tell you how we can write coordinates for specific objects in the drawing.
As you can see in my drawing i have two point objects one line and one circlei will start by placing coordinates of point first.
by inserting field command i will say “T” enter.and I will “insert Field” to represent the x value of the point.in drop down menue i will select “Object”Field name i will select Object tooClick select object and i will select my point.from property I will select positionselect x and set the precision.click ok and x value is shown in the text editor.same i will do for y & Z values. These are dynamic coordinates if you move the text and point to other location it will change the values aromatically. I will prefer to use the field command because it is builtin capability of autocad and you dont have to keep any extra files with you and most important these coordinates are dynamic coordinates unless you copy both the text and the point togather.just command “RE” enter and the fields in the drawing will be updated. you will get the new coordinates without typing. just give it a try.
