Advice 1: How to redraw the drawing

The drawings constitute a significant part of the documentation from which the engineer operates each day. Often working out of design documentation requires error correction or rework drawings. This must be done in compliance with government and industry standards, performing the job manually or using CAD tools.
How to redraw the drawing
You will need
  • a computer running CAD software;
  • paper or tracing paper;
  • plotter or printer;
  • - drawing tools (templates, rulers, rassini, pencils) for drawing manually.
Instruction
1
Pick up a set of documentation relating to the drawing that you need to alter. For Assembly drawing it will include specification on the Assembly node set – list of specifications for the product, and all Assembly drawings, BOM for assemblies and drawings of parts. The more information about a drawn object you will have, the faster and more correctly you do the new drawing.
2
Make a frame and sheet format drawing on GOST 2.104-68. Remember that the frame and the main inscription runs depending on the format (A4, A3, A2, etc.). If you make a new drawing of another format (more or less) correct orientation of images of the cross sections, cross sections and drawings. If a new drawing will be executed in a larger format, use the zoom scale (2:1, 4:1, etc.), not forgetting to specify the actual size of the depicted object. When the drawing is overloaded with types, sizes and technical requirements, you should redraw it, inserting new sheets, which will be evenly distributed all information about the object.
3
If you migrate engineering documentation from paper form to electronic, that is perecherkivaet existing on paper drawing, using CAD tools, don't forget to include additions to state and industry standards that have occurred over the lifetime of the drawing. Normally all changes should be reflected on the field of the drawing, and the change number and the date of its introduction indicated in the title block. When performing a new drawing account should be taken of all changes and execute it under the new rules and standards that apply at the current time.
Note
If you perecherkivaet drawing notice of the change of the design documentation, don't forget to include it in the sheet of the new drawing.

Advice 2: How to print a drawing from autocad

AutoCAD is today one of the leading programs in the field of creation of drawings and three-dimensional modeling. Its capabilities in this field are almost limitless. It is possible to create drawings of any complexity, ranging from primitive nuts and to the most complicated mechanism. Often the result of any operation is the drawing printed on a specific paper format. So how to print drawing in AutoCAD?
How to print a drawing from autocad
You will need
  • AutoCAD and a working printer
Instruction
1
Having already finished the drawing, click in the upper left corner of the "MENU" button, since the ninth version of the program, it is denoted by large, red letter "a". Then, select "PRINT" in front of us a window appears with the print settings. This window can be called by pressing hot keys "CTRL+P".
2
In the paragraph "Printer/plotter" to find the name of your connected printer.
3
In the paragraph "Format" to select any format, be it A3, A4 or another depending on the size of the drawing.
4
In the paragraph "printing Area" we offer the choice of several types of the print area, they should be considered more:

Border selecting this type is possible if you adjust the size of the drawing under the selected format of the sheet.

Frame – we are in manual using your mouse, highlight the desired area.

Screen – with this type of print program will print out the part of the drawing that is currently in the visible part of the screen.
5
In the lower right corner of the settings window print there is an arrow which when pressed will open additional settings. They can adjust the orientation and quality of the drawing.

Another important point: if your drawing used lines of different thickness, the bottom of the workspace have to be pressed the display lines in accordance with scales".
6
And finally click the button in the window of print settings "apply to WORKSHEET" and "OK"

Advice 3: How to open a drawing compass

The main task to be solved by the system KOMPAS-3Dis the modeling of products. It pursues two goals, namely a significant reduction of design time and early start models in production.
How to open a drawing compass
Instruction
1
Sometimes there is a need to open any drawingthat was previously created using another program. For example, consider the option of postponing the drawingand autocad. How can I do such an operation? Let us examine successively all the necessary actions.
2
Actually there's nothing difficult. Those drawingand which are designed in autocad, as a rule, have format AutoCAD DWG or AutoCAD DXF. And in order to open them in the Compass, activate the following options: File->Open->files of Type AutoCAD DXF/DWG AutoCAD and select the desired folder with the file name.
3
Sometimes it's not necessary to specify the types of files that were listed above. You can choose the option "All files" and find the desired drawing in a folder of their own.
4
There is another option. Right-click on the desired file, then in context menu select the following options in the order in which they appear: Open with->Choose program->Kompas-3D LT. In this case, the program itself will do everything for you, ie will automatically transfer the necessary drawing in the appropriate format. That is, in principle, that's all. Now you can work in peace.
5
A small digression. If the drawingher too much, and the files in the folder are in different formats, it is best to use either the first or last option.
Note
Achieved the objectives of the system KOMPAS-3D with the following:

- transfer of the model geometry in the analysis packages.
- quick access to technological and design documentation, which is required for release of products. It and Assembly drawings, and specification, and detailing and much more.
- transfer of the geometry software packages for control equipment CNC;
- creation of additional images of product models, for example, to draw up the appropriate directories.

Advice 4: On the computer to create a drawing

Design work is impossible without drawings. They can draw freehand, it takes a lot of time. This work can greatly facilitate using specialized computer programs.
On the computer to create a drawing
Instruction
1
When creating drawings you can use different programs, the specific choice depends on what industry you're in and what kind of drawing you want. One of the most popular programs for computer-aided design CAD is AutoCAD. This program allows you to create projects of any complexity, print ready drawings. It is suitable for the vast majority of design work, its latest versions support 3D modeling.
2
Despite all the advantages of AutoCAD, in some cases, the designer needs a more specialized program. For example, if you want to create a drawing of a yacht, you should look for programs designed specifically for this purpose. They will help you easily and quickly prepare all the necessary drawings, with their help, you will be able to calculate the shipbuilding specific tasks – for example, the future stability of the vessel, its draught and trim.
3
For the design of the yachts you can use the following specialized software: AutoShip, Rhinoceros, AutoYacht, CATIA, Freeship, CARENE. All of these programs can be found on the Internet. It is best suited for Amateur designers, so as is quite easy to use, allows you to quickly calculate the various options of design and create working drawings. You can use a very good 3D modeling software COMPASS that is actively used in various fields of design activity.
4
The remarkable features of computer aided design SolidWorks. It allows you to work with the most complex projects, the designer is able to create 3D solid models of parts and assemblies design. In this program a joy to have at the ready three-dimensional parts can easily be created working drawing. The advantage of this program is that when you change the layout of nodes or dimensions remaining dimensions are automatically adjusted to the new version, which relieves the designer from the weight of tedious work. SolidWorks along with AutoCAD is the market leader in automated design systems.
