Have You Tried: Associative Arrays in AutoCAD – AutoCAD Blog

Many mechanical, architectural, and civil engineering designs contain symmetrical or repeatable patterns. Repeatable patterns, also known as arrays, can be created using the ARRAY command. The ARRAY command was updated back in the AutoCAD 2013 release to support associative arrays.

Associative Arrays in AutoCAD

Associative arrays make it easy to create rectangular and polar patterns along with distributing items along a 2D path.

Once an associative array has been created, you can:

  • Replace all instances of the original object
  • Replace or edit individual objects in an array
  • Update the number of and distance between items in an array

You can learn about the benefits of using associative arrays by viewing the video and following the step-by-step examples in the HaveYouTried:AssociativeArrays topic.
