Building Multisided Polygons

Polygons are multisided objects in which each side is of equal length. The lines that make up the side of the polygon are grouped to form a single object, and the number of sides for a polygon can vary from 3 to a maximum of 1,024. Objects such as square rivet holes, revision triangles, or simple bolt heads are easily created with this command. To activate the Polygon command, choose the Polygon button from the Draw toolbar or select it from the Draw pull-down menu.
