Drawing wipeouts

 

Wipeouts are unique entities that can help you hide areas of your drawing. They display

with the current background color, so the details behind the wipeout do not display

or print.

 

Wipeouts are similar to other entities — you can copy, mirror, array, erase, rotate,

and scale them, and they can be used in both model space and paper space.

 

If you want to print the wipeout entities located in a drawing, you must print to a raster-

capable printer. Note that in some cases you may have unexpected results when printing drawings that contain wipeout entities, for example, if printing on colored paper.

 

Wipeouts are created using existing polygons, closed zero-width polylines made up

of only line segments, or new polylines that you draw while using the Wipeout command.

 

 

The display of wipeouts varies depending on your version of CAD.direct 2019.

If your CAD.direct 2019 version does not include raster image capability, wipeout entities display, but the details behind the wipeouts also display.

 

Turning wipeout frames on or off

Each wipeout has a frame along its boundary. Wipeout frames can be turned on or off

for any drawing. When wipeout frames are on, you can select and modify wipeouts.

You may want to turn off wipeout frames when it’s time to print.
