Learn about using the utilities in HSM.
- [Instructor] In this video, I wanted to cover a few…of the utilities you might want to use in creating operations…inside of HSMXpress, as well as how to create a setup sheet.…So first things first is the utilities.…Let's go ahead and click on that dropdown there.…Right here you can create a sketch.…It's a regular SolidWorks sketch,…so you don't have to choose it from here;…you can automatically go back to the regular sketch tab…and create sketches that way as well.…But a lot of times if you try to create…a boundary or some special feature,…you might need to create a sketch to define how…that's going to go; so that's an easy way to create that.…Also, if you're going to be doing some engraving,…you can also create stroke text,…which is just basically stick font…so the engraving cutter can follow…those lines to create that text.…
We also have the option to create a couple of different…planes, a coordinate system and axes, and so on.…We can color our faces.…We can create a silhouette.…We can also create a spun profile.…
