FabriCAM Software Positioning Practical Exercise Four (Part 8) Step by Step Video Tutorial

fabricam positioning practical exercise four

Now that we have tried our hands at a few basic practical’s for the CAD tool, what’s next?

Next on our list I would say lets look at starting to combine designs with a variation to the position.

This video is part of a Mini-Series.
Next video covers CAD Positioning – Practical 5.

Alright, guys, In today's video, we're gonna be looking at practical number four for our cad positioning feature. And but before that, let's have a quick intro first. So today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. We make sure and easy to watch problem solving videos, and we also have daily updates. Otherwise, we're into the programme there. Now, in today's video, we're gonna be looking at creating this form of shape. So we need practical and, um, it's gonna be a few requirements, and you can obviously try create it any way you want. But to get a more precise, uh, result, I'm gonna give you a few requirements. So now, um, first of all, we're gonna be using circles or circular shape, and then I want you to be able to use two different positioning, um, options. So we're gonna be looking at the single positioning and then also the circular position. So, using those two combined with a circular shape, I want you to create this form of, uh, product. So this could be used, perhaps for, um, a chairs base or something in that line. You know, one of those really turning ones. It's multiple reasons why you want to make a similar shape to this, but, um, obviously, this will vary depending on the actual product you're making. But this just kind of gives you an idea of how to create one of these things using, um a few different positioning options. So now what you can do pause here, try it out a few times, and then afterwards you can if you want, you can come look at the process I took if you perhaps didn't come right or you're just curious. Yeah. Why? OK, I'm presuming you guys gave it a try. Um, it's always a good idea. With Practicals, you try it yourself as well. So now what I'm gonna do is I'm just gonna remove this, and then, um, I'm gonna try and make that shape. So I'm gonna start off by adding adding a circle. I'm gonna add our centre circle. So we've got something to work around. Let's make this one maybe about 400. Let's OK, click single positioning and place it here on the 00. The next thing I'm gonna go circle again. This one I'm gonna go 100. This will be obviously the size of your holes. Then I'm gonna go to the circular positioning Click this and then I'm gonna set up these few settings. Now my X and y I'm gonna leave zero. So it is nicely in lined with this circle. Then next up I'm gonna make is about 500 mil to the right. I mean, the the diameter, then a put the flies between them. I'm gonna make 200 because our actual circles are 100 make 30 60 degree. I want it right around. And then I'm gonna put the 10, um, now a number of circles, we're gonna add 10 of them and I'm gonna say, OK, add this to our design. Then what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna delete every second one. So I'm gonna select that, keep controlling and just make little selection boxes over every second One hit, delete. And there we go. We've got our cutouts for the screws or whatever that's gonna be. If it screws, you might make it a bit smaller, but it's just to give you a general idea. Then next up, I'm gonna do the overall cut out. Now I can kind of do with my hand measure here and to get ideas. So it's about 1000 200. And this office, uh, differ if you've got your actual product design already set up or it's measurement, so I'm gonna be 1000 200. Say, OK, add single position again. Say OK. And there you go. We've got our actual, um, shape over here. We've got a nice centrepiece, which we can maybe feed a shaft through or something. And we've got some cut outs where we can tie it down with bolts or maybe screws. And then we've got our base plate, which will be the main body of support. But yeah, otherwise that is it on the practical. I hope you guys came right when you tried it the first time. And if you didn't, I hope this came and, uh, was of good assistance. So you kind of get a better idea of how to take the product from, uh, nothing to finish. Yeah, Otherwise, before we move on, if we go here to softwaretraining.co.za. You guys will notice we've got a variety of different Softwares. You do cover, and you can also isolate your search on the top and right. If you do not, however, find the training videos you're looking for, just simply go. Yeah, request the training video, fill in the uniform, and then we'll do our best to try and make that for you. But otherwise thanks, guys, for watching and cheers.
