  1. Orientation (basic).
    • Open the AutoCAD program
    • Open personalized 2D Template which you have already created in the 2D Course. OR Choose from the template selection drop-down dwt or acad3D.dwt.
    • Ribbon still 2D if you previously have worked on your 2D template
    • And other parts of the drawing screen.
      • View Cube.
      • Navigation bar.

 

  1. Setting up the drawing environment.
    • Select 3D Modelling (also show 3D Basic).
      • New tools on the ribbon.
    • Change drawing area properties.
      • Switch off the grid.
      • Change the colour of the ribbon and drawing area.
    • Number of viewports can be created and they work as a unit – keep to one for now.
    • Create additional Layers (Model, HD, CL, Section Plane, Viewport, Text, Dimension and Construction lines).

 

  1. Workplanes and Views.
    • Set View controls to parallel and SW Isometric.
    • Set Visual styles control to Wireframe.
    • WCS and USC
    • Move between the different workplanes – stress the importance of workplanes. XYZ
    • Shortcut to pan – hold down mouse wheel and move mouse.
    • Shortcut to Orbit – move around your model. Shift + mouse wheel to rotate.
    • View cube, home from any position. Show different views, e.g. front, left, top, rear, bottom and right views.

 

  1. Solids, Modify and Edit.
    • 3D Slic Draw rectangle 200 x 100 x 70. Workplanes and importance of selection points to slice
    • Assemble by 3 Points – Rectangle and sliced Wedge.
    • Draw rectangle 200 x 100 x 90. Draw Cylinder in the centre and let cylinder protrude above rectangle. Make a
    • 3D Add and 3D Subtract using the rectangle in 4.3.
    • Fillet and Chamfer. Draw rectangle 120 x 80 x 65
      • Apply fillet – radius 25
      • Apply Chamfer both side lengths.

 

  1. Solids.
    • Shell solid – draw 2 identical rectangles 200 x 80 x 90 (a solid cylinder can be placed inside).
    • Wedge – stress selection of points.
    • Solids – show pyramid, torus, sphere etc.
    • Cone – Frustum using grips.

 

  1. Revolve – create open and closed profiles – Wheel.

 

  1. Sweep along a path – Polygonal shape (5 sides) and polyline.

 

  1. Twist

 

  1. 2D Extrude.
    • Using join to create a polyline from single 2D lines or curves.
    • Single polyline. g. draw 2D rectangle + circle in middle.
    • Polygonal prisms.

 

  1. Sectional Views.

 

  1. Saving a Template

 

  1. Paper Space Viewports.
    • Make sure you have created a layer for the viewport – this will allow you to print without viewport frame when layer is switched off.
    • Create more than one view port
    • Double click inside view port to activate – Frame goes dark. Zoom and place views as required.
    • Scale the different views and remember to lock the viewport.
    • Double click outside of the frames. Whole drawing will now zoom not only the drawing in the viewport.
