Have You Tried: AutoCAD Grips – Just Grip It!

Lee Ambrosius

We’re very excited for the Have You Tried this month—and we think you will be, too!  This month is all about grips in AutoCAD.

Grips are amazing tools that can be used to quickly manipulate objects. You can stretch, move, copy, rotate, and more without having to type a command or click on the ribbon.

Once you master editing objects using grips, you’ll wonder how you ever got by without them.      

AutoCAD Grip Examples

In this Have You Tried, we’ll go over how AutoCAD grips and how to:

  • Use grip modes
  • Change the base point of a grip while editing
  • Make multiple copies of an object
  • Use a rotation snap while copying
  • Use a distance snap while copying
  • Work with grip menus
  • Select multiple grips while stretching

Learn how to make changes to objects using grips with the step-by-step examples in the Have You Tried: Just Grip It! topic.
