CAD: Send back, bring forward

When you have linear objects with no thickness or filler, this seems not to be important, but sooner or later it is a can, even though in the layers (Levels) must be wisdom.

It happens that I have this property, which when filled in covers what is behind as text. In Corel DRaw was very easy, you just had to use combinations of Ctrl shift with Pageup or pagedown; Sure there are other ways to do it in CAD, let's see how I did it:

Bring to front microscad autocad 1 With Microstation V8

  • Objects are selected
  • Edit
  • Bring to front

2 With Microstation V8i Is still as limited, with the advantage that in the general properties of objects transparency can be applied.

2 With AutoCAD before 2009

  • The object is selected
  • Right mouse button
  • Display order
  • Bring to front, the send to back.

If the properties of the right mouse button have been modified, it will not be possible. It also works with Tools> Display order... if you find the Tools.

3 With AutoCAD after 2009

  • Same as with previous ones, but instead of saying Display order Appears as Draw order.

4. With AutoCAD recent versions.

  • You touch the object, and in the command bar you type DRAWORDER

After doing ENTER, the options that interest are selected: Front, Back, Above, Under.

    HELLO TRAER FORWARD MEANS TO BRING AN OBJECT NEXT TO HOW IT IS HIDDEN BEHIND LESS OBJECTS

  3. Excellent contribution, I'll test how it works between objects of different levels.

  4. In MicroStation v8i there is a tool for drawings in 2D «Active Element Priority», it establishes the priority of the active element, which determines how an element is shown with respect to other elements.

    Items with the highest priority values ​​are displayed on the front, while items with the lowest priority values ​​are shown on the back. Priority values ​​can vary from -500 to 500.
