Create a drawing from an existing part file, insert basic views, and insert and manipulate dimensions and callouts. Make a basic drawing of a part. Insert standard views. Import dimensions from a model into a drawing. Make a change to a dimension. Demonstrate the associativity between the model and its drawings.
Detail a weldments model using a cut list table and import weld information from the model into a drawing view. Add and modify a cut list table. Import weld information from a model into a drawing view.
Route flattening and detailing functionality creates 2D route drawings from 3D electrical route assemblies. There are 2 methods to do this, annotation and manufacturing. The manufacturing style is discussed in this module lesson. Adjust curvature and orientation of flattened wiring routes. Flatten wiring routes.
Learn to create tube drawings with appropriate dimensioning, a bill of materials, and multiple orthographic views and projections. Create a tube drawing from an existing part. Add additional views and a bill of materials to the drawing. Create centerlines and driven dimensions on the additional views of the part.
Create piping drawings with orthographic views, bills of materials, detailed views, and annotations by using the piping drawing and standard drawing tools. Add annotations and dimensions to drawings. Create piping drawings. Add bill of materials to drawing.
Automatically populate cells in a BOM table using custom properties from the models in the drawing. Fill cells with custom properties such as vendor and part number. Modify and save a BOM table as a template for future use.
Create balloons to relate items in a bill of materials table to the corresponding items in a drawing view. Use the Balloon, Auto Balloon, and Stacked Balloon tools to create balloons on the drawing. Align balloons using magnetic lines.
Calculate values in a bill of materials table using equations. Use various functions such as IF, AVERAGE, COUNT, and so on to calculate the data. Calculate the total cost by multiplying the unit cost times the quantity. Determine the sum of the costs of all of the components in an assembly.
Lock the focus on a drawing view so it remains active while you work within that view. Add sketch entities and annotations to a view that has the focus locked on it.
Create and use hole tables and general tables to display different types of data, such as alternate part configurations, on a drawing. Create a hole table to display hole sizes and locations on a drawing. Use a general table to display any custom data. Resize and edit existing tables.
Improve system and graphical performance of drawings. Use lightweight models, large assembly mode, detached drawings, and more to reduce the required system resources. Use lightweight models and large assembly mode to improve performance. Open drawings without the model files in memory using detached drawings. Fix assembly interference issues to correct display issues.
Create a note with text that is linked to existing dimensions and custom properties. Link a note to a dimension. Edit the title block of a drawing to add notes linked to a model\'s properties. Add drawing property information to populate a title block.
Create sheet formats and templates. Sheet formats specify the appearance of the drawing sheet, including sheet size, title block, and more. A drawing template is the starting point for all drawings, including drawing properties, pre-defined views, and more. Understand the difference between a sheet format and a drawing template. Create a custom drawing template. Customize and save a standard sheet format. Insert an OLE object, such as a logo, into the sheet format. Link annotations to custom properties of the drawing or the model referenced by the drawing.
Create basic, aligned, offset, and partial or half-section views, including scope and advanced properties. Add several types of section views to a drawing. Define section view properties. Modify section views.
Create several types of derived drawing views and understand the unique characteristics of each view type. A derived drawing view is created by referencing an existing drawing view. Create a projected view by \"folding off\" an existing drawing view. Project a view normal to a selected edge to create an auxiliary view. Show a portion of a view at an enlarged scale using detail views. Create a drawing view relative to planes or planar faces in the model. Focus on a portion of a drawing view by cropping and hiding the unwanted entities. Shorten an existing drawing view using broken views.
Insert and manipulate dimensions in existing drawing views. You import dimensions from the model, create custom driven dimension, and move dimensions between views. Insert and manipulate driving dimensions. Create driven dimensions. Edit the properties of a dimension.
Insert annotations into existing drawing views, including custom notes, geometric tolerances, and blocks. Create annotations and symbols. Create blocks from geometry and notes. Save a block to a file. Insert a block into a drawing.
Use bill of materials (BOM) tables to call out the components of an assembly. Bill of materials can be modified in many ways and new table templates can be generated to save customizations. Tabulated bill of materials can list information about multiple configurations within the same table. Create a bill of materials for an assembly. Modify a bill of materials table to add and reorder column. Save a bill of materials as a template. Create a tabulated bill of materials.
Use drawing view commands that are specific to working with assembly models including broken out section views, alternate position views, and exploded views. Use drawing view properties to represent assembly configurations. Create a broken-out section view to show internal components of the assembly. Create an alternate position view using an existing or a new configuration. Create an exploded assembly drawing view.
