How to Color and Shade Drawing Areas in AutoCAD 2000


With AutCAD 2000 software, you can make 3D and 2D drawings and designs. The designs are created on a plotting graph, and you can edit areas of your drawing by selecting specific plot points. With the Plot Style Manager feature, you can add color to areas of your drawing and you can also determine the amount of shading applied to each color. You can also use the "Screening" setting to reduce a color to transparent.

  • Open the AutoCAD 2000 file on your computer where you want to set the color and shading. Select the plot area where you want to change the color in your design.

  • Click the "File" option from the top toolbar menu, and then click the "Plot Style Manager" option.

  • Double-click on the plot style you want to use from the list of styles in the Plot Style Manager dialog box.

  • Select the "Form View" tab and then select the color you want from the "Plot Styles" list.

  • Click the percentage you want for the shading of the color in the "Screening" box below the "Properties" heading.

  • Click the "Save & Close" button to save all of your changes, and then close out of the Plot Style Table Editor.
