A donut looks like a wide circle with a hole in it but is actually made up of 2 semi-circle polylines. You can use donuts for electronic schematics, as trees or bushes, or as symbols.
Here are the steps to create a donut:
- Choose Home tab and expand the Draw panel to find the DONUT command, or type donut.
- At the Specify inside diameter of donut <2.0000>: prompt, type the diameter of the hole. To create a filled circle, type 0. The command remembers your previous diameter and uses it as the default.
- At the Specify outside diameter of donut <4.0000>: prompt, type the diameter of the entire donut.
- At the Specify center of donut or <exit>: prompt, place the donut by specifying where you want its center to go.
- The command repeats automatically, so the next prompt is Specify center of donut or <exit>: Continue to specify center points or press Enter to end the command.
Fun fact: You can type doughnut to start this commend.
