Hi all its my first step with Solid works
I'm asking where I can find training documents to draw in 2D.
I have SolidWorks 2009 standard
Go though the SolidWorks Tutorials under Help..... This will give you a start.
Also need to ask why you wish to draw in 2D?
SolidWorks is a 3D parametric modeling package. You use different techniques to create models than if you are drawing in 2D Autocad.
hi Duraid, and welcome to the SW forum.
first of all you need to know what solidworks do and what you want to do,
solidworks is not a 2D drawing software, it is a 3D modeling software. also SW can make a 2D projection drawing for the 3D models.
you need to go through the tutorials.
Warmly welcome in solidworks forum. swx not a 2D software as said ahmad. You can follow sw tutorials; you will understand which is sw has capability like parametric 3D modeling.
There is a free 2D drafting package on the Solidworks site. Look under "Free Tools"
If you have done a 3D PART in solidworks, just click on "file" New drawing from parts" and if your defaults have been setup it will walk you thru the process.
Hardie - just curious - did you previously work at True Temper hardware a number of years ago?
Jeff, yes, that's me, brought out of retirement for a special job ;-)
"Not exactly the Brett Farve of Solidworks"
I am assuming you are talking about the sketcher where you draw your sketches to
create your 3D geometry. Regardless, here is a link for 2009 training manuals.
thanx for ur reply
actually . I used to use AutoCAD to draw 2D sketchs
I'm familiar with AutoCAD, but want to be familiar with SolidWorks 2D sketching.
As i know using 2D technics is the gate to the 3D drawings in all cases 3D drawing is very importan for me cause I'm dealing the molds industry. I have to learn to draw every part in 3D to show how to prepare the mold for this part to the technicians.
You might want to contact your local Solidworks reseller and see about taking some training classes through them.
You might also check out the new DraftSight product at www.draftsight.com. It may be useful based on your needs. Good luck.
