Hi everyone, I want to make marking for the shocking screw on a sheet metal part. But I can't show the mark when I do dxf. How can I do that?
How are you creating the mark; can you add some picture or files to see?
How can I attach a file to a forum post?
Think of a flat sheet, 4 pieces of shocking screws will be discarded. How do I display these shocking screws in dxf format?
Please forgive my lack of knowledge, what do you mean exactly for 'shocking screw'?
Stud screws. how do I show this in dxf?
How can I mark the centers of stud screws locations in dxf?
Can you add small holes?
I don't want the hole in the laser cut. normally I used the autocad to remove the holes and make the center sign. Can I do it in solidworks without using autocad?
Add the sketch of the hole on a layer - You need to find out what the layer color setting is for the laser cutter and then just have the hole showing in the flat pattern as another color. Or try hidden lines/construction lines..
solidworks can do in the technical drawing is not it?

Yes SW can
Can you show me an example, john?
What exactly is it you want to do?
where do you use this drawing?
Sometimes I need to use a screw drawing, sometimes just a description note, sometimes just a hole.
Can we do this in solidworks dxf format?

John, so how do I do?
Nilhan, If you draw a sketch inside the flat pattern annotations view with your points in place, set the view to top view in your model then export dxf with annotations view, you will get the points in your dxf flat pattern. examples shown below.
Add the part to a drawing file, select the face and convert the view in to a sketch, then select the hole edges and convert to a sketch, then add your different layers.
I know the one plasma cutter that I used to create dxf's for skipped over any lines that were blue, so I would have those hole edges or whatever else on a different layer, so the plasma cutter would ignore that line color..
I tried the following, but neither the forming tool's center marks nor the profile exported to the DXF file.
Teşekkür ederim Chad, this is a good method and it will work for me.
Thank you Kevin, it works!
They do show up as you noticed, they are pretty small at first. Although Kevins answer is the way to go if you used a forming tool to locate the screws. Then you would simply export the normal part dxf instead of the annotation view.
