You will need
- - the Internet.
Open Adobe Photoshop and create a new project using main menu, point to New. The best time is right to set the desired image size (in pixels or centimeters), as well as other parameters. Usually, the default project can be set automatically with standard dimensions.
Carefully review the drawing tools in the left panel. Third from the top block contains the elements "Pen" and "Geometric figure", and that will help in the difficult task of drawing. Draw a line with a pen, creating a new layer. Move the line to the desired location using the instrument from the first block. Many operations are carried out using the mouse of the computer, so carefully move the cursor.
Activate the tool "Geometric shapes". Choose the type of element and its form. Click on the area of your image and drag the shape to the required size. Please note on the words Shape — there you will find the most common complex shapes such as heart, envelope, arrow and other.
If the figure is not the way you wanted, then move it using the appropriate tool from the first block. Please note that you can set the desired location to hundredths of a pixel, if you check the Show Bounding Box and then selecting one of the contour points.
The Adobe Photoshop has a variety of opportunities and different tools. It is enough to study the built-in help using the program, and you will be able to create a good image or to adjust existing ones. As a rule, in the Internet there are many free courses available to learn how to work in graphic editors.
Advice 2: How to draw in Kompas-3D
Kompas-3D – a powerful software to create design drawings. The hallmarks of this drawings, the design editor is easy to learn, easy to use and are in good accord with the Russian standards of design documentation.
You will need
- - CAD Kompas-3D.
Drawing in Kompas-3D can be as in normal two-dimensional drawing and create a three-dimensional model , followed by projecting it on a flat drawing. In order to create a two-dimensional drawing, select in the program Kompas-3D select "Create" - "Drawing". You will see a field for sketching.
Next you need to find on the screen "Compact panel". If the panel is not displayed, enable it in the tab "View" - "toolbars". "Geometry" "Compact panel" you will be offered some simple geometric objects with which you will be able to create a drawing. Choosing one of them, try to draw a geometric object in a drawing. Please note that the key parameters of the future figures you may specify either "by eye", pointing with the mouse the position of each the next point, and similarly, by setting the numerical values in the resulting panel "Current state".
It may be very useful for you the item "Compact panel" called "Edit". It has mirroring, rotation angle, shortening or lengthening to a given object direct, and many others. Some of the editing functions work for the selected objects, while others need to choose in advance.
To create a three-dimensional object and subsequent projection of it in the drawing, select "New" - "Detail". Before you open the box, create a 3D model.
Now you need to choose the area where you are placing a sketch of the future 3D model (XY, XZ, or YZ). Select the desired plane, click Sketch. The program switches to generate the sketch.
Sketching generally similar to the plane of the drawing described in paragraphs 2, 3. After the sketch is created, go into edit mode parts ("the panel" - "Edit a part"). This item will allow you on the basis of the generated thumbnail image to build the 3D model by various operations (extrude, cut, cross section, etc.). Selecting the desired operation, set options, edit the details, press "Enter".
Likewise, creating three-dimensional elements and by combining them together, you can create the desired object. In order to then transfer it to a drawing, save the model to file, then select the menu item "Operation" - "Create a new drawing from the model". This will open the drawing sheet, and you will be prompted to select which projection you want to see on a future drawing. Select them and press "Enter".
Advice 3: How to learn to draw in AutoCad
The development of any computer program is a process that requires focus and concentration on the task that needs to be addressed. This is especially true of computer-aided design programs aimed at solving engineering tasks such as processing drawings, plans, electronic circuits or creating three-dimensional models of objects.
You will need
- - a computer with installed CAD the AutoCAD
- - connect to the Internet.
Pick a project that you will work to CAD AutoCAD. It can be drawing simple parts such as bushings or washers. So you quickly can learn how to draw in AutoCAD, since you will implement your project, applying, consolidating and practicing these skills to work in the program.
Launch AutoCAD on your computer. Before you open the working window of the program. By default, everything you do will be saved in a file with the name "Чертеж1.dwg". Try to just give the file the desired name, for example "Bushing.dwg" and save it in the directory from which you would prefer to work with him. This can be done by opening the "File" tab and selecting "Save as...".
Use the ORTHO mode and "snap" at the bottom of the work window. This will allow you to easily draw perpendicular lines and to quickly find the nodes, points of intersection of lines, midpoints, and centers of circles.
Open the tab "Drawing". Here are the necessary tools for making drawings. The tool Bar allows you to draw straight lines bounded by two points. By using the tool "Circle" to draw a circle of a given radius. The length of a line or the radius of the circle in millimeters set in the command line located at the bottom of the work window.
In the tab "Editing" tools that allow you to change drawn object (line, arc, segment, etc.). For example, the tool "Mirror" can mirror the object relative to the chosen axis.
Use the help of the program, which you can open in the appropriate "help" tab. In it you will find the user manual and command reference, use the search help topics. If you do not find your question, try, use the English knowledge base or ask a question on the official forum for users of AutoCAD. All of this can be found on the website of the company Autodesk, which produces the software product.
