FabriCAM Software Selecting Hotspots in the CAD Feature (Part 4) Step by Step Video Tutorial

fabricam cad selecting hotspots

Now when it comes to the different selection types that we have covered, this next one is quite different.

With the Hotspot selection method it will come in very hand when it comes to more advanced operations.

This video is part of a Mini-Series.

All right, guys, in today's video, we're gonna be looking at selection hotspots or how to use a hotspot as a selection, and this will be for fabric and software. But before that, let's have a quick intro first, so today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za z. We make sure that easy to watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates. The words We head back into the programme now. In the previous few videos we looked at different selection options are standard or basic. We looked at cube selection or box selection and also selecting multiple items. Now we're gonna be looking at selecting hotspots, and this becomes more relevant when you're designing. So it's not so much about selecting a shape to edit it or delete it, but mostly to continue a design or work a design within another design. You can say so now, in order to demonstrate this, I'm gonna call it a Q BIA or just make it a square. I'm gonna 505 100. And then, um, let me just do this. I'm just gonna leave it at default. So we've got our square here. Now, let's say we want to put, uh, four little circles here, close to the corners and then, um yeah, so that we can have cut out of that. You know, what I can do is I can go to circle and say we go 100 then I'm gonna go to Matrix Positioning Click here, then we know. Okay, we want to on x two on the y, because that's going to be that. And then we want about 100 spacing left and right or top and bottom. And then the spacing between these circles, I want to be on the X 300 y 300. If I say okay, you will notice that places it up year, so it currently places it according to the world's location or the base location. So now, to get these ones aligned, you we're gonna have to move them or make sure we get exactly the right location and stuff like that, so it becomes a bit more of a work. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna remove these quick and then, um, let's try that again. So now we're gonna go circle. I'm gonna do everything the same. Pretty much I'm gonna 100 select the Matrix positioning. But this time I'm going to zoom in here to the bottom left corner because we know it places that from the bottom is the origin bottom left and then it moves it to the right and top. So I'm gonna go to the bottom left and then what you wanna do is keep your mouth on this corner Izumi until you get this Red Cube and I'm gonna select on that and that makes it the new origin. As you can see here on the preview Got a little origin there and, uh so we can see that is from the bottom left. So now I'm gonna do the same thing. I'm gonna make 21 X and two on Wise. We've got two circles on each. I'm gonna make space in 100 from the side and the top and then the spacing between the circles I'm gonna make 300 again like before Now if I click OK or before I do, you can see a relative. So I've got a minus 250 minus 250 if you can remember. Yeah, we've just had our Cuban all of that. So now we've got this thing compensating. So if I say okay and let's just, uh, click on home, you can see now we've got these circles inside our square or cube, so that's very convenient when you are working on more complex designs and you need to build stuff on on other stuff, you can always use this as a hot spot. Like if I had to just do this 100 then click a single positioning. You will see all the corners have hot spots, so that is a rather convenient, so you can use it as a quick reference point. Two. I work from there, but yeah, otherwise, that is it on the hotspots for selection. It's a little bit more of a complex concept or, uh, but when you get to more advanced designing than and this will be quite handy, so you don't have to manually look on your locator where you want to place things, you can just do it relative to another object. But yeah, otherwise, in the meanwhile, if we had 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 search on the top, right? If you do not, however, find the training videos you're looking forward. Just simply go. Yeah, request the training video filling the form. And then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise I think that's watching and cheers.
