solidworks drawing tutorial
Please note that this is an advanced tutorial which means I don’t cover basic skills here – like creating a sketch or drawing a line – so if you are a beginner then I suggest you to work on the drone project. That is a solidworks 3d modeling project which I described the designing process from the very beginning to advanced skills.
And the summary of this tutorial:
The manufacturing techniques had a vast development during the past decades. An idea becomes a 3d model in CAD software like solidworks and this model is manufactured through CAM process. There is no need for a drawing sheet in such a process but despite all of these developments in manufacturing, a full detailed drawing of a part in a paper sheet still worth a lot.
a detailed drawing is the identity of a part. Drawing is the common language between all the engineers and manufacturers around the world so if you have a detailed drawing of a part you can manufacture it anywhere in the world. We are going to practice such a drawing here.
I have designed a gear coupling in my previous works as solidworks assembly tutorial. Here we are going to make a drawing of one part of the coupling which is shown below:
Suppose that we want to manufacture this part. We need to give a detailed drawing to the manufacturer and all of his questions must be answered by the drawing so that he can produce the part with no problem.
we will create such a drawing in this tutorial.
first Configure the sheet format/size:
the first view is ready to bring into the drawing
make a drived view
dimensions are always necessay
add extra information about the part in solidworks drawing
This is what we have provided so far:
Now the manufacturer knows the main dimensions of the part and holes but what about the teeth inside the part. Take another look at the first picture:
a special view for seeing the inside of the part
we should'nt leave any details unexplained
sometimes we need a bigger picture in solidworks drawing
notes are a great way to add information
Now all the detials of the part are clear for the manufacturer.
You can add a isometric view too just for beautification.Here is our drawing:
we should pay attention to the sheet table too.
