About:


Definition:

OBJECT:

  • A term used to describe any item.
  • Usually a building element (in Architect’s offices), that is created in a CAD computer programme where historically the lines added to a CAD drawing were just that, a load of lines with no meaning to the computer (AutoCAD is an example of this type of programme),
  • now more and more programmes understand the lines that are grouped together to be an object
  • e.g. a WC pan,
  • and the lines that go together to describe its shape won’t be split up, they stay together,
  • an object can be selected using the mouse pointer and moved across the CAD to a new location all the lines come with it.
  • AutoCAD AEC understands objects, as do many others
