I see that you are using AUTOCAD 2012. Might you have 3D models upon which to base your drawings?

here you go, im working on the stop bracket its just not working for me :o

 

Are you trying to recreate these isometric drawing perspectives, or are you meant to do standard orthogonal views? Can you do a simple orthogonal view 2D drawings in autocad?

I just actually figured out how to make it :P

 

but the bearing cap i have no idea haha

 

and this is the "multiview" drawings section

 

so you have to draw top right side views

Good job. Take a deep breath. There is good news and there's bad news. The good news is that the one you are about to do is easier than the last one. The bad news? You still have to do it, and finish your shopping!

Your top view and your side views are identical except for the locations of the lines which will define the locations of the flat area.

personally, i think the easiest way to draw the bearing cap is to draw the front view with polylines,

Bearing cap - 1.png

then make make regions out of it,

Bearing cap - 2.png

then use substract,

Bearing cap - 3.png

then use extrude to give the cap the right height,

then switch to isometric view,

then make a flatshot and insert it.

Bearing cap -7.png

And you only have to put the dimensions in it.

You have two choices.

 

Draw it in 3D and extract the views you need or draw it the "old fashioned" way in 2D (all three views).

 

Which one do you want to pursue?
