Use and Customize the Menus

Monday, April 11, 2016

In SolidWorks 2008, the user interface was improved with the addition of a ribbon style menu bar. The ribbon-style menu helps free up more space on your screen for other functions by automatically hiding when not in use. In the menus, you will
be able to find nearly every tool available for each document type in SolidWorks in one of the following six menus: File, Edit, View, Tools, Window, and Help. 
To view the menus in SolidWorks, do the following:
1. Move your mouse pointer over or click the SolidWorks logo on the left side of the menu bar.
2. To hide the menus once again, move the mouse away from the menu bar. If you prefer to have the menu bar available at all times, you can “pin” it open by doing the following:
1. Click or mouse over the SolidWorks logo on the left side of the menu bar.
2. When the menu list is visible, click the pushpin icon on the far right
of the menu. The menu will remain open at all times.
3. To hide the menu, click the pushpin again.
As with most areas of SolidWorks, the menus are completely customizable to
match your needs. Items listed on the main menus can be hidden or shown for
each document type. If you hide a menu item in one document type, such as a
drawing, it will still be available in another document type as long as it is normally
visible in that document type. To customize a menu, follow these steps:
1. Click or mouse over the SolidWorks logo on the left side of the menu bar. Hover over the menu that you intend to customize.
2. Select Customize Menu at the very bottom of the menu. Check boxes appear next to each menu item.
3. Clear the check box next to items to hide them. Select the check box next to an item to show it in the menu, as shown in Figure 1.26.
4. Once you are finished customizing the menu, press Enter or click outside the menu.
Even though SolidWorks gives you the ability to remove menu items, we strongly recommend that you keep all the menu items visible, especially while you are still learning. Once you become more familiar with using SolidWorks, you may decide that it would be best to hide some items, but we personally keep all items visible in the menus.

Modify text style MTEXT autoCAD

Saturday, March 21, 2015

Abbout the text, These steps describe how to create a new text style in AutoCAD for use with text in a drawing.  If you want although the text was made with the TEXT menu, MTEXT, LEADER, or QLEADER, text can be modified like objects of other objects.

Import insert dxf and dwg files

Thursday, March 19, 2015

This time we can import .dxf and .dwg files to the SolidWorks software by creating a new SolidWorks drawing, or by importing the file as a sketch in a new part.
we will make improvements 3D drawing, with the help of autocad 2D sketch
We can include DWG files directly into SolidWorks documents to assist us in conducting 3D design changes. step by step very modest and simple.
Click Insert, DXF / DWG.
In the dialog box, browse to the folder where the files are DWG click Open.
In the DXF / DWG Import - Drawing Layer Mapping dialog box, accept the defaults and click Next.
In the DXF / DWG Import - Drawing Layer Mapping dialog box:
Select Import in the 2D sketch sheet to import all data to the 2D sketch
Click Finish.
Click Rebuild.

Basic Cad 2d dimension angle-Angular Dimensions

Monday, March 16, 2015

To create a dimension angle (Angular Dimensions) From the Dimension menu, select the angle. Use one of the following methods: For the dimension of the circle, select the circle at the end point from the point first and then determine the end point of the second corner. For dimensions of other objects, select the first row, then select the second row. Enter the options as needed: To edit the text content of the dimensions, enter t (text) or m (multiline text). Editing or overwrite in brackets (<>) change or eliminate the value dimension is calculated by AutoCAD. Adding text before or after the parentheses add text before or after the value dimensions. To edit a point of dimension text, insert (Angle). Determine the location dimension arc line Angular dimensions is to measure the angle between two lines or three points, or to measure the angle between two radius of the circle, We can select the circle and determine the end point angle. We can select objects and then make location dimensions. We can also determine the dimensions of angle by determining the angle point and end point. When we make a dimension, we can modify the contents of text and harmony before deciding on the location of the line dimensions. We can make the dimensions of the baseline and angle relative to the dimensions of the existing angle. Corner of Baseline and dimensions are limited to 180 degrees or less. To obtain baseline and follow-dimensional angle greater than 180 degrees, use grip editing to stretch the location of line extensions of existing basic or advanced dimensions. Dimension Lines If we use two straight, nonparallel lines to determine angle, dimension line arc spans the angle between two lines. If the dimension arc line does not meet one or both of the dimension line, AutoCAD draws one or two line extensions to cut the dimension arc line. arc is always less than 180 degrees. Dimension Circles and Arcs If we use the arc or a circle or three points to determine the angle, arc-dimensional AutoCAD draw the line between line extensions. Extension line drawn from the point of intersection of the line endpoint to arc dimensions. We specify a location to determine the dimension arc line quadrant of the angle dimension.

Basic 3d Solidworks create a fillet specify a radius

Saturday, March 14, 2015

The next step after we create a base feature, a solid hunk of material sits in your graphics area. we will create a fillet specify a radius of 1mm for each each edge, base angles, edge of the hole and boss Click on the Features toolbar Fillet Select the edge. Under the item to Fillet: Set Radius 1mm. Select the Full Preview. highlighted face is filleted and previews face shown. Select the edge that will be made ​​radius. When we move the pointer to the hidden parts, parts will be visible so that we can select it. When we choose each side, the name will be added to Edge, Faces, Features and Loops and previews will be updated. Click.

Basic Autocad draw a circle tangent to two objects

Friday, March 13, 2015

Basic Autocad 2d draw a circle tangent to two objects, we are given two circles and a point on one of these circles. ... As we know, in order for two objects to be tangent to each other draw a circle "circle tangent to two objects" We can draw a circle or a circle with specified radius tangent to two objects or lines. Specify first point on the object tangent of circle: Select a circle, arc, or line Specify second point on the object tangent of circle: Select a circle, arc, or line Determine the radius of the circle: Sometimes more than one circle in accordance with the criteria that we set. AutoCAD makes a certain radius of the circle that intersect the closest point to the points selected. To make the circle tangent to two objects 
1.On Draw menu, click Circle Tan, Tan, Radius. Tangent command starts the object snap mode. 
2.Select the first object to draw a circle tangent to. second object to draw a circle tangent to. 
4.Fill in specify the radius of the circle. 
5.Clik OK
