# Thread: How to Draw This Thing?

1. Registered forum members do not see this ad.

No we don't know, but if you draw the things that are shown in the diagram that are clearly dimensioned then there is enough information to work out where the other arc centers are. Just try it, and if you have any questions then use your eyes and reread all your other posts because the answers have been given many times over, by many people.

2. I came up with this quickie.

Any relation to being accurate was purely accidental.

3. Well, theoretically speaking, you could but oh what a mess. Then the horse wouldn't be able to say "Wilbur."

4. If you had the Solidworks 2016 Training files folder, then you would have the drawing.

5. Are all the drawings basty has asked for help with taken from the same Solidworks manual?

I expect only basty could say. Google only coughs up a page at a time!

It only shows the lack of knowledge that is being displayed, because this exercise should be drawn purely by geometry. My earlier response shows what nonsense is the request for coordinates.

I realized I just needed to draw a circle at the .5 center, and a 1" at the left end point and use the intersection of those for the left arc.
Basty, the r1 center is given, the r.5 center is found by offsetting the 1" radius by .5, and offsetting a line that established the maximum arc condition, given as 1.375 overall, so divide that in half.

8. All it needs are offsets or arcs from the known geometry of either 0.5 or 1.0

9. I merged a couple of threads.

Personally, I think it is a retrograde step to merge all the threads. Now the thread is a jumble, and it all should have been in the Beginners forum, as the OP seems to be a complete novice.
