Mechanical Drawings


Learn Documentation Best Practices!

You will learn how to create professional mechanical drawings from the components and assemblies constructed in the first two courses. All the commands associated with 2D drawings are covered in detail.

Learn how to create custom title blocks that automatically fill out information about the part or assembly in the drawing. Create custom borders, custom sheet formats, custom revision tables, custom BOMs, everything you need to create professional drawings. Also learn tips and tricks that will help you speed up your work and simplify drawing creation.

The course starts by showing you how to use existing drawing templates and sheet formats. You’ll practice the fundamental construction of drawings using standard methods. This portion of the course is short because you’ll quickly begin learning about concepts that will prepare you for creating your own custom templates.

You’ll learn how to setup drawing borders so that they print correctly. Typically drawings don’t print the way you see them on your screen. So you need to make adjustments to drawing borders that sync your drawing templates with your plotter or printer.

Once you’ve adjusted your border your ready to begin customizing it to meet your needs. This will be done for A, B, C, and D size drawings. You’ll also create a common title block used on all sizes as well as custom revision tables, part tables, BOMs and all table types.

While your title blocks will automatically fill in, we also show you how to use the Property Tab builder to add customizable values to your drawings. Customization is the key focus of what you’ll learn in this course.

Let’s not forget the tools SOLIDWORKS has to work with within the drawing environment. You will practice creating all the view types like section views, auxiliary views, detail views, broken views, isometric and exploded views. You’ll practice adding driven and driving dimensions, and learn best practices for adding dimensions. All dimensions types are covered with detailed description of each setting.

This course is packed with tips and tricks to help you streamline your drafting, improve your accuracy and efficiency, and it shows you how to build professional mechanical drawings.
