Tech Tuesday is a weekly blog that addresses some of the most common questions and concerns that I hear throughout the previous week from users of BobCAD’s CNC software. Both customers and future customers are more than welcome to leave a comment on what they would like to see covered for the following Tech Tuesday. If you missed the last Tech Tuesday, click here.
Today’s Tech Tuesday is going show you the many ways you can create wireframe sketches in BobCAD-CAM’s CNC software. Let’s take a look at one of the popular design features BobCAD offers for 2D wireframe creation.
Where do you find the wireframe creation tools?
You’ll find the Create 2D ribbon bar loaded with all of the wireframe creation tools you’ll need for your design project.
Like all design systems the primary forms of geometry are made up of Points, Lines, Arcs and splines.
Each one of the sub menus will also have tooltip, again to help you understand how to use that drawing feature.
This makes it extremely easy to swap drawing feature most for the geometry type you are creating.
Points From Geometry- Allows users to create point locations based on selected geometry. Similar to snapping a point to a snap point, with a twist. Users can filter where points will be created by choosing 1 or multiple point from options. Choose entity end point, entity middle point, arc center, intersection and intersection on extension. This method allows users to select multiple sketches and choose where they want the points created.
