Draw Rectangles and Polygons

You can create rectangles and regular polygons quickly. Creating polygons is a simple way to draw equilateral triangles, squares, pentagons, hexagons, and so on.

EXPLODE to convert the resulting polyline object into lines.

Two commands, RECTANG and POLYGON, provide an efficient method to create rectangles and regular polygons such as equilateral triangles, squares, pentagons, hexagons, and so on. If necessary, you can useRECTANG to create closed polylines in a rectangular shape. You can specify the length, width, area, and rotation parameters. You can also control the type of corners on the rectangleâ€”fillet, chamfer, or square.

UsePOLYGON to create closed polylines with between 3 and 1,024 equal-length sides. The following illustrations show polygons created using three methods. In each case, two points are specified.
