The current trend in industry is to design the components directly into the 3D assembly. To highlight all the geometric and qualitative features of a component it is imperative to develop 2D drawings in preparation for manufacturing. These will provide the manufacturer with all the necessary information in order to obtain compliant components.
In the development process of the 2D drawings, accuracy is a defining aspect. Current CAD systems combine the advantages of automated generated views and sections with the use of standard symbols, so the engineer can develop execution and assembly drawings faster.
The purpose of this video is to show how a 2D drawing can be developed and dimensioned, from an existing 3D model, using NX 12 from Siemens.
With a team of experienced specialists, Ada Computers offers mechanical engineering, mechanical design and 2D drawing services for the development of industrial equipment.
