This Getting Started guide will show you the basics of AutoQ3D CAD for iPad. You will notice that it is not just a paint program with 3d capabilities but a precise 2D/3D CAD system for your iPad.
When the AutoQ3D launch, select the draw option and then the rectangle
Touch on snap button and enable "Grid" and enable snap
Move the cursor to 0,0 position and keep touching the screen and then give a second touch to everywhere on drawing area to "click"
Move to coordinate 6,4 and make a second touch on drawing area to "click"
That will finish the rectangle command, now we are going to draw an arc, and select the draw option and then the arc
Now touch the screen to move the cursor to the position 6,4 and make a second touch on drawing area to "click"
Now to enter the second point, we are going to input the coordinates manually. Touch on instructions(Top of screen) and will display the current options, and select ">>Value":
The iPad will display the keyboard to enter the value manually. Enter "@-3,3", the "@" means It is a relative coordinate to the current point, en then click OK.
Then select the third point moving the cursor on the endpoint and then make a second touch on drawing area to "click"
That will finish the "arc" command, to erase the top line of rectangle, touch the screen and set the cursor with the small square pointing to the line and then make a second touch on drawing area to "click" and release the touch (Note: if you maintain touching the screen with the second input and then move the cursor then will do a window select). To unselect or cancel the current command press <ESC>
Touch the "Top options" button and then select "erase"
Now we are going to do a round fillet. Press the menu button and select "Modify" and then fillet
Touch on instructions area to change the fillet radius, select "Radius"
Touch again on instructions area and select ">>Value" and enter value "1" in keyboard and press "OK"
Select the line setting the cursor small square over lower corner of line, and then make a second touch on drawing area to "click". Then select the line setting the cursor small square over right side of line, and then make a second touch on drawing area to "click"
Then click on <ESC> and that will finish the fillet command
To change the view press the "View" button (you can change the view when you are setting points and then return to continue setting points)
Touch and drag the view to the desire point
Then press the Done button to return to normal view
