Converting from 2D into 3D

  1. 1. PRESENT:LEARNING TO CONVERT FROM 2D TO 3DUSING SolidWorks®LEVEL: MEDIUM
  2. 2. HOUSING2D TO 3DTHIS WILL BE THEFINAL MODEL
  3. 3. AutoCAD 2D DrawingWe select all lines (wecan apply AutoCAD filteroption) and CTRL-C
  4. 4. In SolidWorks, we use Ctrl-V (Paste)and create blocksBlock1-1Block3-1Block4-1 Block2-1(4) Four block created inSW (Front, side, sectionA-A and section B-B)
  5. 5. Insert Block3-1 on“Front Plane”Insert Block4-1 on“Right Plane”
  6. 6. Sketch using “convertentities” optionExtrudes the sketch asshown
  7. 7. Sketch using “convertentities” optionCut-Extrudes the sketchas shown
  8. 8. Use same technique:• Sketch using “convertentities” option• Extrude or Cut-Extrude
  9. 9. Mirror for flange Cut-ExtrudeCut-ExtrudeInternal Cut-Extrude
  10. 10. Working on the internal cavity
  11. 11. Mainly, we use holewizard positioning theholes based on theblock-sketch
  12. 12. Creating oil feedFinishing the base
  13. 13. Adding filletsTo finish the internalcavity, use same technique:• Sketch using “convertentities” option• Extrude or Cut-ExtrudeCut-Extrude
  14. 14. Creating the extension for bottom bolts (4 places)Create the sketch in themiddle plane using “convertentities” option.Extrude as shownFor the another side wehave three options:-Mirror features or-Array features or-Extrude the sketch and youwill see the “sketch37” witha hand, this means, thesketch is shared.This is a sharedsketchWe use this option
  15. 15. Finally, we have a3D detailed model.
  16. 16. 3D MODEL 3D RENDERED MODEL
  17. 17. Conclusion.• Convert from 2D into 3D is easy as per we saw in thispresentation only if your 2D source drawing is done correctly.• It is not necessary convert everything. You take your modelsthat you really need to convert.• If you need to insert a model in an assembly to checkdimensions, position, interference, etc., then it is notnecessary to create a detailed model.• You can apply this procedure using others 3D softwares.If you need more detailed information, please contact us: training@viencad.ca
