# FabriCAM Software Polyline Practical Two for CAD (Part 4) Step by Step Video Tutorial

Now the great things about the basic Polyline tool is that you are able to use it to create basic designs in one go.

When you have all you measurements worked out before hand, then you are able to with this tool plot out most of the design with a single tool.

This video is part of a Mini-Series.
Next video covers Polylines – Practical 3.

How do you guys in today's video, we're going to be looking at how to create a rectangle square. You're using the poly lines and this will be a practical or our second practical for the cat feature. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. So today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. We make sure that easy to watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates. Otherwise we get into the programme. Yeah, Now, like I mentioned, there's going to be the second practical. I'm sure you guys can remember this from our first one. So I'm just gonna go and remove this and then run you through what we're gonna be trying with our second one. Now, in our second one, we're gonna be trying to duplicate this rectangle, but only using the pollen line tool. So what I want you guys to do is you must be able to create uh, square or a rectangle using this tool only, and ideally, it must be a closed shape. So the basically the end or the beginning and the end of the final shape should be at the same point. Now, if you want, you can just pause you give it a few tries, and then we can carry on from that if you have not gotten it right. So if you have balls and traded and haven't gotten right, this is gonna be, uh, solution That is rather straightforward. I'm hoping you got it right. But if you didn't know sweat. So we're gonna first of all, select our poly line tool click on the backdrop. And then we want to adjust this. So we know now our first point is gonna be 00, and then we want to set our second point. So you can either go clockwise or counterclockwise or maybe gonna go counterclockwise. So I'm gonna go on my X over here my second point, make it 100 and then on the Y over here, I'm gonna leave that zero. Then we're gonna add a plus. You can obviously added and preview it and double click it again to edit it. But I'm just gonna do this in one. Go now. Our second point, you can see it's starting now. Over here. Now what I wanna do is on our second point of our second point or second point of our second line, so I'd rather say we want to lift this one. So I'm gonna go this one. Let's make it a rectangle or something. I'm gonna go 50 or 100 rather go for a square. So I'm gonna go 100 and then on the why I wanna go this one also 100. So now what's gonna happen is, um it has started here. It's gonna stay there, move up. At least it shoot on. It's like it's something wrong in this demo. Anyways, I'm gonna add another point, and now we're gonna go back to the left. So now pretty much we want to make sure that these ones are also 100 100. So 100 100 says how? Because it's joint over there, so this one will actually Sorry, my bad. These ones we wanna leave zero and, uh, why we're gonna leave 100. So now what's gonna happen is just end it there. It's gonna go back to the beginning and 20, but keep it 100 high because our last point now is 100 high. So this one we want to go to 00. So our X zero, which is right for our first point, are wise Hundreds. Right. So now to drop it will be X. I mean, why zero, which is right and x zero. So let's say okay and see if we got everything right. Here we go. It looks about fine for me. Got a nice little square going there. I should say, a rectangle. Uh, box. Sorry. I use a lot of three d and to the software, so I tend to call them rectangles and sometimes cubes and a bit of a mess. But anyway, there we go. We've got our, uh, square going here. Like I mentioned, you can do a rectangle as well. And, uh, once again, just to demonstrate our just with the poly tool or poly line tour, we can create most of these shapes or most of your primitive shapes, even once you don't find here just by using this tool, and it's very handy. Obviously, we're doing products as many other things we can be looking at, like rounding the corners or tampering them and so forth. But we will be covering that in a later video But yeah, otherwise that is it on the practical. If I hate here to softwaretraining.co.za. You guys will notice we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover. And you can also isolate your search on the top of right. If you do not, however, find the training videos you're looking forward. Just simply go here requested training, video, filling the form and then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise thanks, guys, for watching and cheers.
