Autocad 2013 Begginer problems

Recommended Posts

ReMark

CADGUY: Not sure why you thought this was a good place to ask your question but we'll certainly consider it just the same. In the future you might want to open a new thread to post a question that is unrelated to the topic at hand. Just a friendly suggestion; no offense intended. Thanks.

frederico:

 

You did not answer my question about the new set of assignments. You said they were on pages 87-89 but it did not include the quilt. Does this mean you have to drawn ALL the other exercises? It appears that would be eleven different drawings if I counted correctly. And the assignment was due today (Monday, Sept. 17th)?

Exercise 1.3 Site Boundary.jpg

Exercise 1.3 Site Boundary

 

As you see I provided the missing distance and angle.

 

I don't do this type of drawing much any more and my "old school" method (which still evidently works) might not be the best one to use. And, since I'm not much of a Polar Tracking or Object Snap Tracking kind of user I would be hesitant to explain the use of either command. So, this is where I call upon another forum member to graciously step in and explain the nuances of drawing a line at an angle relative to another line in such a manner that frederico can fully understand it. Be advised that his English language skills may be somewhat limited.

 

One other option might be to copy and place the original line in place then use the Grip Edit method. I first read of this technique as demonstrated by forum member nestly at the AutoDesk Discussion Groups.

Exercise 2.8 Geometry.jpg

Exercise 2.8 Gasket

 

Fairly simple. Mostly made use of the MIRROR command to save redrawing duplicate geometry. Since no dimensions we given in the diagram I assumed each square of the grid (in the diagram) to be equal to 1 unit. I turned off the grid in my drawing when I made this image so the geometry could be seen better.

I fully understand what you are going through frederico and I think you may have made the best decision given the circumstances. I wish you success in your English class and I hope you continue with your education further be it at Miami International Art & Design or at Full Sail.

 

Your comments are very much appreciated as I have a "reputation" as being too hard on people. I'm sorry we could not finish what we started. I do urge you to continue to practice although I have a feeling AutoCAD will not play a big role in your future studies or career.

 

Please come back and update us from time to time on what you are doing. I look forward to hearing from you. Until then, take care of yourself and give everything you do in life your best effort. Never accept "mediocrity" as the norm. Chaio my friend.

 

Regards....

Exercise 2.9 Shape.jpg

Exercise 2.9 Shape

 

Ah what the heck. Here's another one. Make the MIRROR command your friend and this one will be a piece of cake. Once again I assumed that each square of the grid in the book's diagram was equal to 1 unit.

Cool,this Mirror Tool, if is in 3D is possible use Mirror tool?

Because do the same thing for both sides looks hard.

Are you spying on me? :lol:

 

Yes, you can use the MIRROR command in 3D. Just have to locate your UCS in the right place. Need an example?

People do all sorts of amazing drawings using plain AutoCAD but for a bike or a robot I'd say you are better off with Inventor or Solidworks. You know that students can download free programs, like Inventor, from the AutoDesk website plus a whole lot more?

 

That system looks very good. I like the SSD for the main drive and the 64GB of RAM is totally awesome. Do I read that correctly three video cards? Win7 Pro 64-bit (good).

For my line of work the Quadro suits me well. I see no problem with the GeForce GTX card you have chosen.

AutoCAD is more for what?

Legacy 2D. Most students are (or should be) learning one of the next-generation tools.

 

Example i want create one Bike and One Robot is good for this?

Your is Better 3dsmax and Zbrush? or maya,Cinema 4D...

 

More information is needed - do you want to make pretty pictures or do you want to make manufacturable engineering data. These programs are more for pretty pictures. For industrial design look into Autodesk Alias. For engineering design look in to Autodesk Inventor, SolidWorks, Creo or SolidEdge.

 

Students can get the Autodesk products for free here http://www.autodesk.com/edcommunity

Lurking

Didn't wanted to create a new thread so i'll ask here. I have a problem with onsnaps - sometimes, i don't know why, it's not accurate. Here's example:

 

If i draw line first, then draw circle from the beginning of the line to it's end, if i zoom enough i get this:

http://i47.tinypic.com/jsm447.png

(circle is drawn a little bit off than it's snap point)

But if i draw circle first, then if i draw a line from middle of the circle to it's end, everything is accurate, no matter how much i zoomed. It's just one example that i've noticed, maybe there is more. Precision is set to highest, tried onsnaping with shift right click and no luck, so what could be wrong here?

I have this book 2013 autocad 3D secondl level, by shih,

I can follow along but when I get to the lesson I can't make the jump to apply to the lesson

I did a floor plan in the tutorial now they want me to draw a baseplate

 

 

I am doing the 1. baseplate

I can draw it flat fine,

when I use the thickness .5 in properties,

I only get a line up in Z direction,

How do make it a solid and the circles fill in too,

I made the boss part but it is solid too,

I must be leaving something out, but what.

:x

Do not use the THICKNESS command.

 

Draw your baseplate in 2D using lines or polylines then use the PRESSPULL command to give it height. Precision is gained by typing in the desired height at the command line.

 

Might I suggest that in the future you start a new thread rather than tack your question onto a previous thread. It will be seen by more people and generate more responses.

Baseplate1.jpg

An example of a baseplate modeled as a 3D solid using the PressPull command. The plate is 12x14, it is 0.5" thick and the four holes are 0.75" in diameter. This took less than 30 seconds to do. The visual style is Conceptual while the view is SE Isometric.

 

Any questions?
