Creating Layer States

Layer states can be used to toggle between different layer displays. Layer States Example: • Create a Layer State in the view manager • Hide/Unhide Layers • Save updated Layer State Figure 1 – View Manager Figure 2 – Layer_State001 Figure 3 – Layer_State003 Creating Layer States You create Layer …

Manipulating Dimensions

When dimensions are placed on a drawing, you typically need to modify them, for reasons such as clarity or to adhere to your company’s drawing standards. • You can manipulate dimensions in the following ways: – Move (handles) – Align Dimensions – Flip Arrows – Flip Text – Move Item …

Creating Projection Views

A Projection view is an orthographic projection of another view’s geometry along a horizontal or vertical direction from the parent view. • Projected view characteristics: – Is child of view from which it is projected – Orientation is 90° from parent view – Third angle or First angle Figure 2 …

Analyzing Drawing Concepts and Theory

A drawing is often the final deliverable at a company and contains parametric 2-D or 3-D views of a 3-D model. •A drawing usually contains at least: – Model views – Dimensions – Title block • A drawing is bi-directional. Figure 1 – Example of a Model Figure 2 – Example of …

Dragging Connected Components

You can drag assembly components through their range of motion based on the current connections and applied constraints. • Drag components using Point Drag. • You can create snapshots to capture the positions of components. Figure 2 – Viewing a Snapshot Dragging Connected Components Figure 1 – Dragging Assembly Components …

Creating Distance Constraints

Use the Distance constraint to specify an offset value between different types of geometry. • Select geometry pairs (two points or two planes, for example). • Select geometry combinations (a point and plane, for example). • Distance constraint is the same as the Coincident constraint, except that selected references can be offset from one another. Figure …

Assembling Components using the Default Constraint

It is standard practice to assemble the first component of an assembly using the Default constraint. • Benefits of using the Default constraint: – No references are specified. – No parent/child relationships are created. • You can also assemble sub-assemblies using the Default constraint. Figure 2 – Completed Component Placement …

Understanding Assembly Theory

An assembly is a collection of parts and other sub-assemblies that you combine using constraints. • Create assembly models from standardized templates. • Capture assembly design intent using constraints. • Create assembly constraints. Figure 1 – An Assembly Model is Comprised of Parts Understanding Assembly Theory There are multiple methods to …
