Download and install to your personal computer the program "Compass-3D". To familiarize you enough for demo-version, especially since it is free. Run the program. On the screen of your monitor window appears. On the toolbar select "File". Then proceed according to your wishes.
If you need to learn to draw in the "Compass 3D" flat drawing, select "Create a drawing". After that, the screen will display the drawing sheet with the guides of the coordinate axes. To draw, you will need basic tools. As a rule, they are located on the panel at the left edge of the screen. If the panel is not displayed, add it via the View tab on the toolbar.
Try to work with each of the main instruments in creating the drawing. These include: an infinite line, simple geometric shapes, line, Bezier curve, highlighting, shading, dimension. You can draw as "the eye" and asking specific dimensions and coordinates in the appropriate boxes on the bar at the bottom of the screen.
Creating a drawing in the "Compass 3D", you can save a lot of time due to the possibility of copying and mirroring of the finished piece. It makes life much easier when creating drawings of symmetrical elements.
Download and install the program "Compass-3D", if you need to create three-dimensional drawings. On the toolbar select "File" then "Create item". Working in the program field, select the plane which will create a fragment. The principle of creating a three-dimensional model-drawing is distinguished only by the fact that after the formation of a flat slice of the volumetric model is created by extruding, cutting and modifying the individual parts in respective planes.
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.

- - 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.
