Three section planes Solid surface models

You can use view 3d product solidworks with the section plane. You can create a section view, if you made design 3d, click shaded, click view isometric, Click on the section view in the Drawing toolbar, or click Insert, Drawing View, Section. You can use up to three section planes at once. Solid and surface models as well as assemblies can be sectioned. You can use the spin boxes, enter numbers manually, or drag the arrows that are attached to the section planes to move the section through the model. Section planes can also be rotated by dragging the border of the plane. To create the look of a multi-line, or using the line the middle as the line sections, sketch the line before clicking the tool Section View. Some of the lines can have the same label. If the line does not fully penetrate the bounding box of model in view, we are asked whether we want this to be partial cut. If you click Yes, See Section made as part of partial view.

Creating Simple Parts Assemblies and Drawings

Extruding from a selection.
The From panel establishes where the Extrude feature starts. By default, SolidWorks extrudes from the sketch plane. Other available options include: l Surface/Face/Plane. The extrude begins from a surface body, a face of a solid, or a reference plane. Extruding from a surface Cross-Reference Surface features are discussed in detail in Chapter 27. n l Vertex. The distance from the sketch plane to the selected vertex is treated as an offset distance. l Offset. You can enter an explicit offset distance, and you can change the direction of the offset. Direction 1 and Direction 2 Direction 1 and Direction 2 are always opposite one another. Direction 2 becomes inactive if you select Mid Plane for the end condition of Direction 1. The arrows that display in the graphics window show a single arrow for Direction 1 and a double arrow for Direction 2. For the Blind end condition, which is described next, dragging the arrows determines the distance of the extrude. Each of the end conditions is affected by the Reverse Direction toggle. This toggle simply changes the default direction by 180 degrees. You need to be careful when using this feature, particularly when using the Up to end conditions, because if the entity that you are extruding up to is not in the selected direction, an error results. Following is a brief description of each of the available end conditions for the Extrude feature: l Blind. Blind in this case means an explicit distance. The term is usually used in conjunction with holes of a specific depth, although here it is associated with a boss rather than a hole. l Up to Vertex. In effect, Up to Vertex works just like the Blind end condition, except that the distance is parametrically controlled by a model vertex or sketch point.

AutoCAD Using Polar Tracking and PolarSnap

Because everything that you create requires some degree of precision, it is critical that you learn the different options for creating geometry accurately and yet efficiently. Previously, you learned how to enter coordinate data in the form of absolute and relative coordinates. These methods, though important, are not always the most efficient for creating geometry. Using polar tracking and PolarSnap, you can create geometry with the same precision as coordinate entry allows you, but more efficiently. To use these features, you need to adjust their options and turn them on using the status bar buttons. In the following illustration, the same paths are being drawn using polar tracking and PolarSnap. The alignment paths appear as dotted lines extended indefinitely from the point of your cursor. The polar tooltips display the current position of the cursor relative to the last point selected. The path on the left is using polar tracking with an absolute angle measurement, while the path on the right is using the Relative to Last Segment option.

Creating Parallel Line in Unigraphics 3d

Parallel line are created in much the same as tangent line. select application or modelling. create line. Open the Line tool. Make sure the Associative option is selected. Select a start point for the new line. Use the Snap Point tool to aid object selection. The New Line Start Point with Inferred Auto-Plane For clarity in this example, we have used F3 to turn off most of the dynamic input boxes. Set the end constraint to Angle. Select the existing line you want the new line to be parallel with. Existing Line Highlighted The Angle Handle Displays on Selection of the Line The auto-plane changes to match the plane of the selected line, and the Angle handle and a dashed reference line displays. If Snap Point is disabled, you can select the existing line without having to first set the end constraint to Angle, as the system will infer the Angle constraint anyway. Drag the angle handle to 180 or 0 degrees. The parallel symbol displays when the line is parallel. At 0 or 180 Degrees the Lines are Parallel As you drag the angle handle, a parallel symbol displays at 0 and 180 degrees in reference to the selected line, and a perpendicular symbol at 90 and 270 degrees. Drag the start and/or end handles or specify a value to get the desired length. Click MB2 or Apply to create the parallel line.
