How do you do detail sheets? I do each detail as a separate drawing then x-ref each detail into a sheet file. I see many people draw details in the sheet file. For me, doing individual detail files makes redundancy easier as many details are generic and can easily be used from one project to the next. On occasions when there are slight project-specific changes, I still find it easier to take an individual file, make the changes, and save it under a new name.
cancer24 posted a topic in Autodesk InventorHi, I have been learning Autodesk inventor lately, and I am quite excited about it. I have been doing a lot, the problem though I need dimensions to model things, because I am at the beginning stages, and I don't have any sort of experience in design, I mean I have zero knowledge about design principles and philosophies. So my approach has been to imitate what I see, I get pictures like this http://iadesigns.com.au/53_Bevel_Gear_Support_exercise.jpg http://furnituredesignbank.com/Blog/Entries/2011/4/1_8_This_stool_can_be_made_in_various_heights._files/dimensioned%20drawing.jpg Like so, I prefer pictorial drawings, they are easier to understand that side views. I am sure there is somewhere to look for these kind of things, so please help me. I tried google images search engine.. key words like "dimensioned drawings", but no avail... Thank you very much!
biglow79 posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceI am trying to draw details at multiple scales in one drawings, ex. 3"=1'-0", 1 1/2"=1'-0", 3/4"=1'-0" and have come across a problem. I am only allowed to have one ltscale per drawing, so how can I make the lines (dashed lines, centerlines, etc.) show up correctly???
