How do I trim?? Query from a newbee

Postby Phil Smith » Sun Oct 28, 2007 3:00 pm

Hi Qcaders:

I'm a Qcad newbee interested in drafting for my home cabinetry projects. Here is a question:

I made a square that is 25 x 25 and then drew a 315 degree angle from the 12.5,25 point. The angle intersects that upper right corner of the square, and extends beyond the right- side of the square.

I want to:

1. trim the upper right corner of the square that is "cut off" by the angle, and then

2. trim the segment of the angle line that extends beyond the right-side of the square.

How do I do this? I'm new to Qcad and cad in general.

Thank you!

1. Use the CUT Tool. [di]
2. Cut the lines needed in parts with the scissor tool. Use [si] intersection points to match intersection lines. Then left click do the cut.
3. Then use DELETE to delete.

OR better and faster:

3. Use the TRIMM tool [d2].

Yes, [d2] is your friend here!
