    Hi Jacant, for me it seems there's missing the thickness of the big bent tube ( the one with the outer diameter of 222mm) Without this measure I don't see how to construct your "task".

    PS: What does PCD mean?

    Sorry about that Georg.

    The Pitch Circle Diameter (PCD) is the diameter of the circle which passes through the centre of all the holes.

    Hope it's what you wanted to see :-) Encountered some bugs in new Version 4 but it seemed I found workarounds...Was a nice weekend task..:-)

    It was a bit of a trick question.

    I wanted to see how anyone would draw this for it to be shown as a 2D drawing.

    The answer is.

    Georg, If you select the extra faces on the inside and outside of the pipe and use the 'Fill' tool they should disappear.

    I have had many people ask "How to draw on a 'Drawing Sheet' without the Add-on".

    First depending on the size of the model. Think about the scale that will fit on the Drawing sheet. Draw the Sheet at a scale you want. (If you want the scale to be 1:2 then draw the Drawing sheet 2 times bigger, as in my drawing). Then 'Insert' the file that you want. Move, Copy and Rotate until you get the desired views. Annotate the drawing full size. Change Display - Graphics to Hidden line Removed.

    Now when you come to Print use the 'Print Preview ' -  'Content' - 'Extents' - 'Scale to fit'. Then adjust the scale to show the best view. It is an approximation. I would state on the drawing sheet 'Do Not Scale'

    These Drawing sheets can be saved as 'Templates'. With a bit of practise you could draw each one to fit the size of paper you use A4, A3, Letter. Each one with a different scale.

    The only draw back to this is the size of the annotations. I believe that the model is output as 'SVG', while the annotations are output as 'Bit Files' (Pixels)

    The scale on the image is wrong because the drawing sheet is based on an A3 size, yet my printer can only print A4. I took the file to my local Maker club for it to be printed on an A3 printer.

    Jacant.

    I'm considering purchasing the drawing and exchange modules - i have yet to see questions re operation of the drawing module - are you well versed in the workings of it? Perhaps it's a much shallower learning curve than the modeling nuances.

     

    Without you, forum knowledgable help would be significantly less, which is probably so far the biggest understatement of the roaring 20's.

     

    Cheers Tim

    I have never used it.

    I just looked at the video and thought I could do that. As I said, the only problem with it is, it exports the dimensions as 'bit maps'. It is basically a top, front and side view of the model. Positioned as such that you can even add a 'section mode'. as I did above.

    You could save as a DXF file and dimension it in a free program.

    Jacant - Thanks. Although as you say it's possible to manipulate the part and make necessary copies positioning them in various spatial arrangements, i reckon for 'commercial use' in an productive manner, you need the relative modules. What i like is the multiple section views of complex assemblies all live to dynamic modification, thus all updating instantly.

    But for the individualjust wanting to get the odd drawing 'out' for personal use - then perhaps the method you outline is highly suitable.

    Cheers for your input as always.
