Sample 2D part. |

This tutorial demonstrates one of many ways in which the 2-dimensional part above can be drawn in CNC-Calc v7. Since the part is symmetric about the horizontal axis, only a subsection of the part needs to be drawn. The complete part emerges from mirroring. The part will be used to generate turning toolpaths, so we only need to draw the outer contour of the upper half.

This tutorial demonstrates the use of the following functions:

- Draw a vertical line defined by its starting point and length.
- Draw a horizontal line defined by its length.
- Draw a circle with a given radius defined by its center.
- Draw a line defined by its end points.
- Draw a polar line.
- Offset a geometric element.
- Trim element between points of intersection with other elements.
- Connect and bevel two elements by a given angle and distance.
- Connect and round with a given radius between two elements.
