    Create fabrication drawing of a gusset?

    Neil Gabie

      Hello everyone,

       

      This is my first post on this community after lurking and gleaning information for many hours in the past. Thank you to all of the contributors on these discussions for helping out so much during my learning!

       

      I have, undoubtedly, a simple question: I've created a gusset on a sheet metal part (see photo)that will be cut and welded in place as a separate part (this is a one-off bracket). The fab shop will want a separate drawing indicating the details of the gusset so they can cut it out and weld in place.

       

      What is simple method of achieving the above?

          Welcome to the forums, Neil.

          When producing your drawing you need to select which sheetmetal body you want to place on the drawing sheet.

          Step 1 - Use Model View to setup your drawing views, select your (saved) part followed by the arrow.

          Step 2 - Select Bodies.

          Step 3 - Select which body you want to appear on the drawing, then click the green check in the property manager and it will return you to the drawing sheet.

          If you have any issues with this let us know.
