Learn about using equations in the BOM.
- [Instructor] In this example I'm going to be bringing in this part into a drawing and then importing some model dimensions. Now you have the option when you're creating dimensions to mark them as for import into the drawing. You can easily get to those over here if you click on maybe the original sketch here. Let's go ahead and edit that sketch. And then over here you can see I have this 1.5 inch dimension. Double click on that one there. You can see here I have this button here highlighted. It says mark dimension to be imported into drawing. If you go ahead and turn that off it won't be imported. If you do leave it on it will be imported into the drawing when you select to import those dimensions.
Go ahead and click okay. Notice that I've got a couple of those already preset up here. Exit back out of there. Let's go ahead and create a drawing. So I'm going to go up here to make drawing from part. Click on that. Use my default template. Click on okay. Let's go ahead and just drag in a front view. Now, go over here to model items under annotations, model items. Click on that one there. The source make sure we're choosing the entire model. You also have the option of selected feature. Go ahead and choose the entire model and then over here, make sure you're choosing that very first box.
Make sure you don't choose the other ones because we don't want to import the ones that are not marked for the drawing. So just that very first one there which is marked for drawing. Eliminate duplicates is probably what we're looking for. And then go ahead and just click on okay, and it's going to go ahead and bring in those dimensions that we had marked for the drawing. More than likely on the the exam they're going to ask you to do something very similar to this, and then they're going to ask you how many of those dimensions were brought in from the model. That's a quick overview of how to work with imported model dimensions. Hopefully that helps you out on the exam.
