I had some left overs from another knotty QSWO project so I made this nice wall clock for my sister-in-law and her husband for Christmas. It has a 6×6 dial. Drawn up using my AutoCAD software

Dude, you’re rapidly becoming a Favorite Hog, and this is only your first day! Keep up the good work! How do you convert AutoCAD drawings into that?

Captain;
What I do is simply come up with an idea or I may see an example in a magizine or book or I see something in an antique shop and take a picture of it. i convert that document into a .pdf file. I open up AutoCAD and then bring in the .pdf file as an underlay document which i zoom in or out to get to the correct scale and size. From that point I simply draw straight or curved lines over the .pdf document. when I am completed with drawing the lines, I erase the .pdf file and plot out the completed drawing that I have added all the critical dimensions.
