Shaft parts are relatively common in mechanical drawings. They are generally symmetrical, or partially symmetrical in the middle part. DWGSee CAD has added some speical commands, such as dimension drive, dimension symmetry drive, shaft chamfering, etc., which are specially processed to edit shaft parts more quickly.
Below we use DWGSeeCAD to draw a simple shaft part, by the way, we will introduce some special functions for shaft parts in DWGSee CAD.
Create a new drawing and set the layer
DWGSee CAD uses the automatic layer function by default, create new drawing will have some common layers.
For example, if you draw dimension on the drawing, the dimension object will be in the dim layer automaticly.
The shaft part drawing is symmetrical. In order to avoid repeated operations, only draw a part of the outline, and then perform editing operations such as mirroring and stretching to complete it.
Turn on the orthogonal F8, for quickly draw contour, you may just click the mouse to draw lines directly.
