# 2D Drafting - 02 Primary Drawing Techniques

## Get used to drawing in BricsCAD and learn how to create basic objects.

**Objectives**

## 1/ Draw **basic objects**.

- Draw a line by defining the start and endpoint.
- Add a rectangle.
- Create a circle.
- Draw an arc by selecting three consecutive points.
- Create a polygon.

## 2/ Work with **Entity Snaps and Tracking**.

- Improve the accuracy of your drawings by using entity snaps to create and edit geometry.
- Incorporate theoretical construction geometry when you create and edit geometry.

## 3/ Draw using **precise** **values**.

- Understand the Cartesian Coordinate System upon which the BricsCAD drawing window is based.
- Recognize the advantage of using Direct Distance Entry while creating and modifying objects.
- Understand how drawing units determine the way measurement values are returned.
- Assign specific drawing unit values to a drawing
