How to construct a triangle in AutoCAD?

A - answer Is there a missing TRIANGLE command in AutoCAD? No, to draw a equilateral triangle, use the POLYGON command and enter the number of sides: 3.

Scalene (irregular) or right-angled (rectangled) triangles can be drawn using a triangular-shaped polyline (pline) with a help of osnaps.
