Array Command in AutoCAD

In the ARRAY Command we can create duplicate of any existing objects in any kind of patterns, which is rectangular or circular. By using ARRAY Command we can create duplicate in any path of object. Shortcut of ARRAY Command is “AR”. We can start Array command by type the “AR” in command prompt and then press Enter.
Or
You can select the Array button in the draw panel.
In this command there are three sub tools and these are very useful to complete the action in ARRAY command.
Sub tools are => Rectangular, POlar, PAth.
  • RECTANGULAR
This command’s shortcut is R (enter)
In this command we can maintain the object in Row and Column. In this command we maintain the distance in between one object and second object. When we are using this command then open a panel in Ribbon which we can maintain the number of Row and Column.
We can maintain the distance between two objects which is Row or Column.
To access the Rectangular command:-
AR (Enter)
Select an object: <Enter>
Select an object or (Rectangular/ POlar/ PAth)
R (Enter)
Then open a panel in Ribbon and you can maintain the number of object and distance.
For a Rectangular Array:
  • Prompt: Select an object: (Select the object which you want to duplicate)
  • Prompt: Select an object or (Rectangular/ POlar/ PAth): Type P and then Enter.
  • Prompt: Number of Rows: Type the number of rows and press Enter.
  • Prompt: Number of Column: Type the number of column and press Enter.
  • Prompt: Distance between rows: Enter the distance value of rows. This is based on same point of the array element.
  • Prompt: Distance between columns: Enter the distance value of column. This is based on same point of the array element.
  • POLAR
This command’s shortcut is PO (Enter)
In this command we can maintain the number of Item and Degree. We can use this command to rotate the object in 0-360 degree. This is the very useful command in ARRAY. This command is based on the center point of array. In this command we are specifying the central location of the Array.
To access the Polar command:-
AR (Enter)
Select an object: <Enter>
Select an object or (Rectangular/ POlar/ PAth)
PO (Enter)
Then open a panel in Ribbon and you can maintain the number of items and degree.

For a Polar Array:
  • Prompt: Select an object: (Select an object which you want to duplicate)
  • Prompt: Select an object or (Rectangular/ POlar/ PAth): Type PO then press Enter.
  • Prompt: Base point of object: Give the base point of object where do you want to use the Polar Array.
  • Prompt: Number of items: Enter the value of items.
  • Prompt: Give the Angle: Enter the Angle which you want to rotate.
  • PATH
This command’s shortcut is PA (Enter)
In this command you can give the Path of the object. By using this command we can duplicate the object in any path like as (rectangular, circle, curve etc.). You can give any type of path to duplicate the object and object will be duplicate on the given path, by using PATH ARRAY.
To access the PATH COMMAND in AutoCad
AR (Enter)
Select an object: <Enter>
Select an object or (Rectangular/ POlar/ PAth)
PA (Enter)
Now you can select object which you want to duplicate.
For a Path Array:
Firstly we create a path which you want and create an object on the base point of path then,
  • Prompt: Select an object: Select an object which you want duplicate.
  • Prompt: Select the Path: Select the Path which created by you.
