Stretching Objects in AutoCAD

To stretch an object, you specify a base point for the stretch and then two points of displacement. You can also select the object with a crossing selection and combine grip editing with object snaps, grip snaps, grid snaps, and relative coordinate entry to stretch with greater accuracy.

In this example, you stretch the plan view of a house.


To stretch an object

  1. From the Modify menu, choose Stretch.
  2. Select the object using a crossing selection (1 and 2).
  3. Specify the base point (3).
  4. Specify the point of displacement (4).
