The size of the workspace is an important factor that is to be decided by the user as per the overall size of the object to be designed. Limits is a command in AutoCAD that determines the size of the design workspace. It is the first and foremost step in AutoCAD that is to be carried out before the initialization of the design. The designer can predict the overall dimensions of his design before drawing and determines the limits based on his forecast.

The Limits command asks the designer two major coordinates. One is the coordinates of the bottom left corner which in most cases is set as the origin (0,0) whereas the second coordinate is the top right corner of the design workspace that is varied from design to design based on the requirement.

The steps to be followed to initialize a design workspace with 400 mm width and 400 mm length is explained below:
