NX 8 Drafting

The Drafting course is designed to help you effectively communicate your design intent. This course begins by focusing on the drafting essentials: drawing creation, editing drawings, borders, drawing views, section views, section lines, and image insertion. Separate units will also focus on dimensions (dimension types, dimension creation, dimension associativity); ordinates (terminology, ordinate creation, ordinate editing); and annotations (annotation editor, annotation creation, appended text). The Drafting Tables unit provides an overview of tables, and examines tabular note creation, table commands, parts lists, reference set attributes, and part attribute properties. You’ll learn about utility symbols, ID symbols, weld symbols, and custom symbols in the Symbols unit. Explosions, exploded views, and tracelines are examined in the Exploded Assemblies unit. The Annotations Preferences unit teaches you how to set preferences for everything from line arrows, to dimensions, to fill hatch, to cells. Finally, you’ll be able to put your new drafting knowledge to the test by completing our Drafting Workshop projects.
