AutoCAD customers have been asking for the option to rotate the view with their associated viewport. This was a top item in the AUGI AutoCAD Wish List June 2007 submitted by Bill N. With AutoCAD 2010 we have added the ability to rotate objects in a viewport with the viewport easily without having to become a UCS ninja master.
I was doing some planning work for a new pond in my backyard and thought I would share a cool tip. When drawing a 2D layout of my yard’s landscaping I was presented with the problem of duplicating the flowerbeds border with the grass regions. Instead of copying and drawing outlines which could cause problems with the splines I used for the curved shapes, I used the trick of creating a new boundary polyline with a Hatch. Below is a tutorial on how you can do the same trick and as a bonus showed my design styled in Autodesk Impression.
For those interested in Autodesk trivia this is for you. When software is being developed it does not have a formal name and is often referred to as a codename project throughout development and beta testing.

Last Thursday AutoCAD 2010 was announced by Autodesk and beta customers were released to be the best spokespeople for the release. Below are more blog posts I found over the weekend on AutoCAD 2010 and the launch events in San Francisco with customer bloggers.
In addition to some of the new features (Parametric Design, Free-Form Modeling and 3D Printing) introduced in AutoCAD 2010, the AutoCAD team also made many enhancements to many features that are already part of AutoCAD based on customer feedback. Some of these are:

David Cohn published a new AutoCAD 2009 and AutoCAD LT 2009 article “Much More to AutoCAD 2009 Than Meets the Eye” in Desktop Engineering. It is a good and very well balanced article which points out there is more than the initial impression of the interface changes to AutoCAD 2009.

It is that time of year for students to head back to the classroom and dorms. I just wanted to mention you can get many Autodesk design applications for free as a student from http://students.autodesk.com. From Autodesk Impression, 3D Viz, Revit, to Civil 3D in addition to some curriculum and a community. Unfortunately the there are a couple products missing and I receive emails about, AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT the top of the design software food chain as general purpose...

Kate Morrical posted that her AutoCAD LT webcast recording is now available to watch by those that were unable to attend. The I didn’t know LT could do that! was held on July 16th, 2008. This was the first AutoCAD LT webcast to share tips, tricks, and shortcuts for users of AutoCAD LT. Kate is a maestro with AutoCAD LT and has a blog dedicated to AutoCAD LT named LT Unlimited. Watch AutoCAD LT Webcast now!
Just mentioning for those that did not know I have a new title. I am is the Autodesk Platform Technology Evangelist and a user of many Autodesk products with time spent in a design seat as a customer. My job is to listen and speak with customers about what they use, like, and dislike as well as speed bumps in their current workflow that we might be able to help solve together. I also research problems and work with testing...
AutoCAD HATCH objects are probably one of the most commonly used of the AutoCAD objects, but they do have some limitations and reported issues. We are looking for examples of problems with AutoCAD HATCH objects so we can research further based on the customer examples we receive. We know there are some issues related due to extreme/large coordinates (object a great distance from the origin 0,0) and the CPU FPU Floating Point precision and rounding but want all examples. If...
