AutoCAD supports its own native Shape fonts (SHX files) and TrueType fonts. Working with text styles and fonts that will be saved to DWG files. When working with a DGN file that will be saved to a DWG file: Use TrueType fonts when possible, since both MicroStation and AutoCAD support this font type. Looking for Shapes fonts? Click to find the best 241 free fonts in the Shapes style. Every font is free to download!
Architectural Fonts Autocad
- In this video, I have explained methods of adding additional TrueType and shape fonts in AutoCAD. You can download fonts used in this drawing from the link m.
- Use the LOAD command to load a compiled shape (SHX) file containing the shape definition. Then you use the SHAPE command to insert shapes from the file into your drawing. You can specify the scale and rotation to use for each shape as you insert it. SHP fonts are a special type of shape file, and are defined in the same way as shape files.

2D3DSteel Main tool bar has six fly out tool bar buttons on it providing access to all of 2D3DSteels' commands on one tool bar to save screen space if needed.
2D3DSteel Settings tool bar controls 2D3DSteel layers, linetypes, centerline modes, node point modes, and dimension text lock colors. This toolbar has two commands for saving and restoring your object snap settings. It also includes commands for fast centerline and node point mode changes.
2D3DSteel Shape tool bar commands draw the shape selected in the ShapeBook dialog as 3DSolids, 2D Cross sections, and 2D Web and Flange Views. New cope commands draw a cope pline that can be used as the end of a 2D member or to cope a 3DSolid.
2D3DSteel Lines tool bar is a powerful set of tools for line work in your drawings. Line commands for the 2D3DSteel object lines, hidden lines, centerlines, and dimension lines. Line commands can also be used to quickly change to a 2D3DSteel layer/linetype setting. All of the commands in 2D3DSteel except for these line commands save and restore your current layer and linetype settings. Commands on this toolbar include drawing offset rows of centerlines, centered rows of centerlines, centerlines at equal spacing, centerlines at maximum spacing, and an intelligent handrail picket tool.
2D3DSteel Holes tool bar has four types of 2D holes, round holes, edge holes, slotted holes, and elliptical holes. Each of these four types can be drawn filled, open, or hidden. 3D Hole command is used to add holes in 3DSolids and the Polyline cut command can change any shape created with a closed polyline into a cut out in a 3DSolid with a specified depth. Two bolt group commands draw a single row of holes and a double row of holes.
2D3DSteel Dimension toolbar includes a transparent command for fast 10 key XX.YYZZ feet, inches, and sixteenths input at any AutoCAD distance prompt, a transparent command for metric input in millimeters at any AutoCAD distance prompt. Special dimensioning commands for horizontal or vertical dimensions with automatic .Y & .X point filters to quickly line up dimension rows, rotated dimension commands that remember your rotation angle, and commands to lock and unlock associative dimension text with text color id for easy member shortening and un-shortening.
2D3DSteel Plate tool bar has five commands for drawing 2D plates are used in addition to the commands on the 2D3DSteel Shape tool bar.
2D3DSteel Drawing Settings are stored in your drawing and are used automatically from drawing to drawing. The default value is 0 for all dimensional input entries that are encountered for the first time. 2D3DSteel saves all of your dimensional input entries. The saved value is offered as the default value for that command input entry until it is changed. All of the default values are automatically saved and then restored in your next AutoCAD session. What this means is, once you enter a hole diameter or slot length etc. that will be the value used when you hit return for the prompts for those dimensions the next time you use that command. If you change a value, that will be the next default value for that prompt.
Using AutoCAD with 2D3DSteel, you will have the tools to accurately draw or model 2D and 3D structural steel framing and connections. You can use 2D3DSteel to draw your sections and details or to draw structural 3D models using 3D solids created by 2D3DSteel and ShapeBook.
Please Note: The procedure for adding 2D3DSteel to your AutoCAD Startup Suite is documented in the ShapeBook software and help is available on the About tab.
