Is it possible to add cam dimension using the model items , would it show all info needed , and also is there a way to draw the motion curve ??
Can you be more specific?
Add a cam dimension to what? Draw the motion curve in association to what?
You are listed under the toolbox category. Is there a specific toolbox part you are trying to modify?
They can be modified, so a few more specifics would help.
what's up funny boy
I am trying to add dimensions to a cam that I just desgined in a drawing , I did that using the tool box . and I was wondering if there a way to show the dimensions in the drawing or do i have to do it manually .
for the curve I am trying to draw the cam displacment diagram
Ok, now I understand.
Use the insert model items in the annotations toolbar to get the dimensions
from your model in the drawing.
I tried that and it is not inserting enough dimensions . as shown in the attached pictuer
THis is what we are trying to get to. It shows the cam path in a linear diagram and it shows the cam path in a circular motion. The latter helps illustrate the actual cam better. We just need to be able to add the dimmensions to the solid drawing
When you are trying to insert the dimension through insert model items,
are you picking the view or a feature?
Honestly I have never inserted the dimensions from a toolbox item., but this
is the commands you would use to do it.
Try opening up the toolbox model and make sure the dimensions are marked for drawing.
Thank you for you time
No problem. Glad to help. Is your issue resolved?
not realy , but working on it manually
Nope, we are all working on the same problem in class.
Didn't realize you guys were together on this.
Did you look at the dimensions in the model sketches?
Were there any?
This is what I was talking about earlier about the "Mark for Drawing"
If you RC on the dimensions in the sketch you will see this menu.
