In previous posts I have provided basic introductions to AutoCAD. E.g. I have introduced AutoCAD line, AutoCAD polyline, AutoCAD circle etc. I have also introduced various helpful AutoCAD functions (F1 to F12 in AutoCAD).
In this post I want to demonstrate the AutoCAD DIST command.
I start by entering the DIST command into the AutoCAD command line.
I can use the AutoCAD DIST command for measuring the distance between two points.
When using distance measuring between two objects I can use the command in combination with AutoCAD object snaps. In below example I measure the distance between the center points of two AutoCAD rectangles.
