KICK-ASS posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceHi, I'm new to the Forums and this is my first thread. I have been assigned to draw an isometric and 2 dimensional view of a sprocket. It has to be to scale with the sprocket given to us. I can't figure out how to measure it, much less start it. My guess is to start with the center, but I can't even measure that. When I figure out how to post a picture, I will. What I can tell you so far is that all I am permitted to measure with is a 6" CEN-TECH Dial Caliper. Not sure of the name, but I can describe the center hole(s). The center looks like a gear with 6 (flat) teeth. Above that (I eyeballed the bottom of it at about 1/8 in. away from top of center) is a circle that my caliper reads at 0.276 in. in diameter. It has 14 teeth. Sorry for the long explanation, but I want to make sure the responses can be accurate as possible. When I get the pic, I'll post it. On this thread. THANKS SOOO MUCH!!!
I am trying to land an internship and this place that does a lot of detailed drawings for manufacturing. They dimension 3D parts using solview and soldraw, and then create detailed drawings for their machine shop. So what's the best textbook out there that would better help me understand all the different views and industry standard when dimensioning?
