    I'm New to SolidWorks and Need Some Help

    Corey Loyd

      I am trying to create a very simple 3D drawing, but I am a complete novice when it comes to SolidWorks, and CAD in general. I have learned some of the basics, but unfortunately not enough yet to get this done. If anyone can explain how to creat the following drawing, I would really appreciate it.

       

      Picture 4 pieces of rebar, 7 ft long, sticking straight up in the air in a diamond shape. The tops of the pieces of rebar are bent at a 90 degree angle and extend 2 ft. The four pieces of rebar are connected with smaller diameter rebar bent into a circle and welded in place to each of the 4 pieces of rebar. There are 3 of these circles moving up the length of the 4 original pieces.

       

      I have attached a VERY crude drawing that I did in MS Paint in about 30 seconds to try to give you a better visual.I hope this makes sense, and I really appreciate any help I can get. By the way, I am using SW 2010

       

      Thanks,

      Corey
