The shortcut of drawing regular polygon in the CAD is Polygon (POL). In the drawings, we can directly input the shortcut POL on the command line, also you can choose in the menu bar and tool bar.
So, how to draw the regular polygon? We’d like to explain it through examples.
Command line: Polygon Execute the Polygon command
Polygon: Multi(M)/Width (W)/<4>; W
Input W
Multi-segments width;2 Input the width value:2
Polygon: Multi(M)/Width (W)/<4>; 6
Input the side number of the polygon as 6
Specify the center of the regular polygon or [Side(E)]
Pick the origin of the coordinate
Input the option [Inscribe in the circle(I)] [Circumscribed circle(C)]I;C
Input C
Specify the radius of the circle:50
Input the radius of the circumscribed circle as 50
Command: POLYGON Click the ENTER button
Polygon: Multi(M)/Width (W)/<6>; 4
Input the side number of the polygon as 4

Specify the center of the regular polygon or [Side(E)]
Pick the origin of the coordinate
Input the option [Inscribe in the circle(I)] [Circumscribed circle(C)]
Input T
Specify the radius of the circle:50
Input the radius of the circumscribed circle as 50
