How to draw beams in autocad?
Step1: Open the tool palette thatcontains the structural beam tool you want to use, and select the tool.
You may have to scroll to display the desired tool. Afterselecting it, you can move or hide the Properties palette to expose more of thedrawing area.
Step2: If you want to offset the new beam(s) from the elevation ofthe current level, double-click the Elevation value on the application statusbar at the bottom of the workspace, enter an elevation value (or specify a pointon an existing object in the drawing area), click OK, and then click the Z-snapbutton to the right of the Elevation Value.
Step3: Position the new beam(s) in the drawingarea.
