Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with 2D models, part of Learning eDrawings.
In a 3D world, 2D drawings seem so old school.…However, drawings can relay information in ways 3D models just don't show well.…eDrawings has a great set of tools for working with and annotating drawings.…Let me go ahead and open up a couple of files here.…The first one I want to open is a actually a 3D file as well.…So it's eDrawing part 2.6. Let's go ahead and open that up.…You can see this is a little bracket, and I can spin this thing around, I can look…at it. The only problem with looking at this…bracket is I don't see any of the dimensions, right?…I have to go actually, come over here to the Measure command and measure the…individual parts out. Alternatively I can go over here to Open…and open the eDrawing. (SOUND) And in this, I can see the exact…same bracket but I can see all the dimensions and places on that model.…
Now, somebody would have already created this drawing in SolidWorks.…However, once we do have a drawing, we can go ahead and zoom in and zoom out, review…the different sizes, the different dimensions placed on this drawing.…
