You can also choose to display the frame on screen and have it hidden for plotting. Frame Determines whether the edges of all wipe out objects are displayed or hidden.

WITHOUT command in AutoCAD is used to mask an area in a drawing. Whenever there are many complex parts in the drawing background, and you need to hide them, you can employ the WITHOUT command.
Table of Contents (click to navigate) WITHOUT command in AutoCAD is used to mask an area in a drawing. Whenever there are many complex parts in the drawing background, and you need to hide them, you can employ the WITHOUT command.
The WITHOUT command employs a polygonal area that masks the objects in a selected region by applying the background color. When a portion or area of a drawing has been “wiped out”, it appears blank.
For this tutorial, we are going to hide a portion of the design below using the wipe out tool. First, you either type the command *WI* or select wipe out under the *draw* drop-down.
Pick the wipe out tool from the draw drop down or type *wi×, then select the poly-line object (red arrow). *Note*: you can’t create a wipe out region from a circle or a filleted object.
A wipe out object is a polygonal area that masks underlying objects with the current background color. You can create wipe out objects on a layout in paper space to mask objects in model space.
Because a wipe out object is similar to a raster image, it has the same requirements for plotting. Get answers fast from Autodesk support staff and product experts in the forums.
After having had many problems trying to use the Wipe out command in AutoCAD, I have discovered some tips that make it easier. For example, wipe outs can be made only with poly lines containing only line segments, so when I have a circular block that I need things behind not to show around, I draw a poly line all the way around the circle using the nearest Snap command, then offset it inside the circuit slightly so that I know it’s there.
To fix this, I simply edit the block and send to back the wipe out using the Draw order command. Applying this command string to drawings that are received from other people prior to working with them is also a good idea, so you aren’t surprised by them later.
In CAD, it will appear that the wipe out is working correctly, but when printed it does not. Notes from Catalyst tip reviewer R.K. McSwain: Wipe outs can be a little frustrating when you first start working with them.
Angelina Rosa, a CADD technician, shares a tip that can help you manage AutoCAD’s wipe out objects. “There are many times that I get a drawing from another user and find a piece missing or blocked out (this happens more commonly with a xref or PDF reference).
Dynamic blocks work by setting rules or parameters that allow for easy appearance change once it is inserted into a drawing. While AutoCAD for Mac does support dynamic blocks, we have not tested our products in it.
While our products only come in the imperial system, a proficient AutoCAD user should be able to scale the blocks without problems. If you are however a beginner user, we do not recommend modifying them as you can easily do changes that cannot be reverted.
