  1. Hello people! Let me introduce myself first. I am a student who is studying IT but im actually into programming for last 5-6 years.. I discovered 3d cad modeling few days ago and since then I cannot stop watching all types of videos on youtube that are related to mechanical engineering topic ( part design ). I found it very very exciting and interesting, that is why i decided to start learning and practicing it .. I decided to start learning Creo parametric, from my understandings i do not need any background knowledge before start learning it ( i dont need to know any
  2. Dear All, Do you have any idea how can I convert this type of spline to a "normal" line? I think I get it from Inventor or Mechanical... I cant explode or extend, or add chamfer. Totaly useless! Please help if you can! Thank You! T line.dwg
  3. Hello, Im using AutoCAD, AutoCAD Mechanical 2009 and Mechanical Desktop 2009 I have parts that have a material assigned to them through the 'MASSPROPS' dialog box. When assigning the material to a part, material properties associated with that part are assigned as well. Is there a way to either remove the material assignment or create a "dummy" material with material property values set to 0 and assign this new material to the part using AutoLISP? If not AutoLISP, is it possible using any other code type?
  4. Hello fellow CAD tutor Here I have a small project I’m working on. I’m new to all this cad design but I find it very enjoying, my cad skills is very basic but planning on improving. I’m currently using Auto CAD 2012. What I have problem with, is figuring out how to sketch this flange on cad so I can get it to a laser cut. Here I have uploaded some pictures and hopefully give you guys a good idea to what I would like to achieves. Pic 1 shows how the actuator fitted to flange, problem there is that the actuator rod is not pointing in the right direction, so I’m having this trouble get
  5. Hi, 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
  6. Hello here! I'm new to AutoCAD (mechanical) but I've seen some intro video's (getting started video's) from AutoCAD and are very exiting to get started! Since I'm total new with AutoCAD, it's pretty challenging I must say! Let me give an example... From the picture attached, I want to make a mechanical drawing. It's a standard bracket wich I intend to ' copy ' by a local supplier. But he needs a nice mechanical drawing, with messurements / dimensions etc. Is there somewhere a tutorial or getting started video on how to approach this? How do I draw the first lines, do I draw a
  7. I have some questionsconcerning AutoCAD Mechanical 2012, especially related the Bill Of Material (BOM)features. I have been using AutoCad for over 20 years, but am new to Mechanical and creating BOM's. I have been trying to create blocks of my companys parts, and cannot get the part references to work the way I'd like them to. I have searched the tutorials, help menus, videos and online forums (including this one) but cannot find anything that helps. Thank you for reading! Please let me know if you can help. My questions are: 1. Oncea part reference is created and info
  8. I'm having an issue with dimensions changing from when I save the drawing to when I reopen it. I'm using AutoCAD Mechanical 2009, exclusively in 2D. I save drawings in AutoCAD 2000/LT 2000 Drawing format to maintain backwards compatibility with our legacy documents which are still in regular use. The exact process is: 1. Create dimension in existing drawing. 2. Set units of dimension. Typically this is fractional. 3. Save and close drawing. 4. Reopen drawing, and all of the dimensions units are set to decimal to the fourth decimal point. If I interact with the dimension
  9. Hi, I am used to Autocad Architecture and using AEC walls. Now I got Autocad Mechanical and when I open a drawing with AEC walls they are completly dumb. Is there no way that I can use these elements in Mechanical? Thanks!
