FabriCAM Software CAD Positioning Practical Three (Part 7) Step by Step Video Tutorial

In this next practical exercise we will be looking at a few ways to really speedup a workflow.

Also with this tool we will be looking at a way to get multiple outcomes from a single layout design.

Hi, guys. In today's video, we're gonna be looking at our positioning um, practical number three. And this will be for our feature. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. So today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. And we make short and easy to watch problem solving videos. And we also have daily updates. Otherwise, we're into the programme here. Now, in today's video, in the practical, we're gonna be looking at creating this type of shape or layout using, um, a shape of your choosing. Now, after this, I'm also gonna show you a nice little quick hack for, uh, well, not a hack, but like a speed up of something else. But, uh, I don't want to spoil it just yet, OK? Maybe not that exciting, but, um, just so you can get an idea of the difference with speed of another workflow, but yeah. So what I'm gonna have you do is create this type of shape so you can see we've got three by three. And, um uh, basically a border. So just pause. Here, give it a try. Remember, you have to use the matrix positioning. Should I say that's part of the requirements? And then, uh, see if you can achieve this. But then once you're done, just unpause and then you can carry it on. OK, I'm not sure if you've tried it, but let me quickly run through my process. So I'm gonna remove that. I'm gonna add a little cube. I'm gonna leave, uh, the lower left or the actual origin. Then I'm gonna go click on the Matrix, click on the background. And now we want to set these settings. So x and y I'm gonna leave zero, then, um, a X. I'm gonna make 200 a Y 200. So we've got a nice 100 spacing between our shapes. Then the numbers. I'm gonna go three on the X and three on the y. So, three x three y say OK and we have our shapes here. Now, what I simply have to do is just select the middle one, hit the lead, and then we have a nice border. Now, the reason why I want to show you this method is because it can speed up a lot of things. So now I don't know if you can remember the first tutorial we did where we used the Cube. And then, um, we had the single positioning and we added one and the side top. You know how long that took? It's a It's a quite a process. But now what you can do is you use the Matrix. So let's say we do the same thing. Leave all of this. I'm gonna go 200 spacing 200 spacing again. 33, Add it. Now all I do is select these outside ones hit, delete. And there we go. Oops, we are done. So you can imagine how much time this saves you in production if you use your tools. Right? Like I mentioned, though earlier, that the single positioning even though, um, it only places one. You must never be underestimated because, um, you're always gonna be using it. But if you understand your end result, you can use some of these other tools to get there way quicker, so use a fraction of the time and then get the same result. Yeah, otherwise, that is it. On the practical for the matrix positioning. Very handy tool. If you're doing bulk and layouts, it's gonna save you a lot of time, but yeah, otherwise, if before we head on, if we go here 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 searching on the top or right. If you do not. However, see the training videos you're looking for, just simply go. Yeah, 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 thanks, guys, for watching and cheers.
