The CP_CGRID command creates a construction grid with labels. It has the option of creating Horizontal, Vertical, Inclined or Bi-Directional grid interactively (at pick points) or automatically (to fill a rectangular space). It is also possible to create interactive and automatic circular grids also.

In interative mode, the distance or angular inputs can be provided which specify the spacing between the grid lines. For example, while drawing rectangular grids, it is possible to draw the next grid line by entering the perpendicular distance from the last drawn grid line. A positive value draws to the right of the first defining grid line and a negative value draws to the left of the grid line. Similarly, while drawing interactive circular grids, it is now possible to enter the next grid line relative to the last grid line by specifying the distance from the inner grid point or the outer grid point. A value of '50i' indicates a distance of 50 from the inner point while '100o' indicates 100 distance from the outer grid point. Angular alignments also can be created. For example, entering '20a' creates the next grid line at an angle of 20 degrees clock-wise to the last drawn grid line. '-20a' would draw it counter-clockwise.

There are also options to create cross-grid points in interactive circular mode. Cross grid points also can be created by pick or by entering distances from inner or outer grid points as indicated above.

This is a power-packed productivity tool for AutoCAD and BricsCAD.
