FabriCAM Software CAD Positioning Practical Five (Part 9) Step by Step Video Tutorial

fabricam cad positioning practical five

Now with a somewhat of a continuation on the last practical, lets have a look at spacing.

When we are working with multiple shapes and positioning them, the calculations become very important.

hi guys. In today's video for the cat positioning feature, we're gonna be looking at a practical or practical number five, and this will be for fabric camp software. But before that, let's have a quick intro first, so today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. We make short and easy to watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates. Otherwise, we're back into the programme here. Now, in today's video or practical, I want you guys to try this type of layout. So, as you see, we've got here, um, a few circles in a line and they are not the same size. So we have three. That's the same size and two. That's not so, um, I want you guys to try to create this in today's video, though you can use a square or rectangle or anything like that. But I want you to use just the actual linear positioning to get this right. So instead of manually placing this in between ones, I want you to, um, calculate all of that. But otherwise, uh, give it a try and pause this video, and then if you don't come right or you're curious about the process I took. You can just unpause and have a look after that and I'll show you. OK, I hope you guys gave that a try, So I'm gonna quickly run through the process I took and then, uh, just so you guys can see how to go about it. So I'm gonna select this. Just remove it. I'm gonna start by adding a circle. I'm gonna make this 100 then I'm gonna go to the linear position, click here, leave the top two at zero, and then I'm gonna put it, uh, let's say we might get a 400 spicing between them, so it's easy to calculate the centre of that. So we know 200 will be the centre then and I'm gonna leave the same, and I'm gonna make three of these. So now we've got 100 circle with, um, 400 space in between each one of these circles, and we have three of them. So then what I'm gonna do next, I'm gonna go the circle again. This time I'm gonna make this one. Let's maybe make it about what? About 203 100. Let's make it twice as big 200 then I'm gonna go to the linear positioning again. Now, what's important is our X needs to change on our starting position so we can have it start over here and then jump to the next one. So now, like I said, we've got a 400 space between us, so we want to divide that in two. So I'm gonna make this 1 200 then the actual spacing here, I'm gonna keep consistent. So also 400 same as we did with the previous one. So we know between this middle and that middle is gonna be 400. So we know the second one is aligned to the right position angle. I'm gonna leave, and then there's someone gonna make two other money say OK, and then there you go. Now we've got our, uh, three smaller holes or three smaller cutouts with our two bigger ones. So that's the way you can kind of go about using a linear type positioning with different shapes and sizes, but yet keeping a form of consistency throughout. So most of it is just through the calculation of the spacing apart or making sure your inner your next big size doesn't overlap your smaller one. But yeah, otherwise that is it. On the practical number five, I hope you guys find it useful. And, uh, if we head here, though, to softwaretraining.co.za. You guys will notice we've got a variety of different Softwares we do cover, and you can also isolate your search on the top or right. But if you do not, however, find the training videos you're looking for, just simply go here and request the training video, fill in the mini form, and then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise, thank you guys for watching and cheers.
