I added a company logo on the door of my enclosure assembly. I added on the part file but the logo is not there in the assembly. Not sure where it goes?
are you sure the view decal is on
When I open the part level that decal is there
When I return to the assembly and go to Decals, all I see is what showed below.
I checked and make sure the sketch picture is not suppress. It is strange that when I right click to edit that sketch then it is ok. Did I miss something?
This isen't a decal, but a sketch picture.
You will have to drag a decal from your Apperances, Scenes, Decals pane tab. If you just insert a standard decal, you can change it afterwards to your logo.
or Decals are selected in the Heads Up Display
when I selected the part with the decal, those option disable.
I found it much easier to work with jpeg files verses decals. What you need to do is draw a sketch representing the actual size of the decal and extrude it very thin, preferably the thickness of the decal, then from File Explorer drop in the Jpeg of the decal and change the mapping, drag it out to the border of the decal part. The other advantage of doing it this way, you have custom properties and a file name, which will show up in the BOM...
Ok. I don't think I fully understand how this decal works. What I did: I created a part file and extruded it thin as John's suggest. I don't want to show the logo so I used a jpg image attached as my logo and save the part file. When I reopen the part file it is not visible. I right click and sure decal is in show condition. Did I do it incorrectly? BTY can I upload the part file? I don't see the attachment icon.... Thanks
Sounds like you did it correctly, there may be other appearances that affect the view, to upload see this great post by Deepak Gupta
I recreated the part file and right click to add decal on the thin extrude. That works now. Problem solved.
Regard to my sketch picture one I still have issue. What I did. On the door part file, I go Tools, Sketch Tools, Sketch Picture. I inserted that company logo image (jpg format). I put a point where that company logo begins so that I can dimension on the drawing. Return to the enclosure assembly the company logo from the door is not there. I even put back to normal mode (it was transparent) the logo is not displayed.
Don't put the picture in a sketch, drop it onto the face of the extrude. If you drop it in a sketch then you need to show all sketches to see it.
It works! Thank you so much! Problem solved!.
One thing though, every time I edit the decals SW crashes on me!
Thank you all
