3. Computer-Aided Design¶
first I try to do my final project by 2d so I did top view for the drone I will use two programs “Inkscape” and “GIPM”
it is my first time to use this program so it was hard but I get use to it . but it have a lot of things that make it some thing you have to learn about it .
first I click in into this “” the I click in to “” to make my outer frame for my drone .
I make it ainge but I change the color to make it frame , and I make it in the center then I marge the shapes .
I made the inner frame for the drone .
and I duplicated to do all the inner frame
next I made cercal in the center .
start doing my drone wing
then change the rotation point so it be easier for me to join it to the base
I duplicated and put on in each side .
this is the END
one of the tool that I like it is “path” it is useful when you want to cut from shape by using other shape
first you select the two shape then you click in “path” and chose the way that you want to cut the shape
the same of the paths so you can chose how you want to cut the shape :
I use GIPM and I find it more easier to me because it have used similar platform to the photoshop that I am use too.
first thing I drag the photo in side the GIMP
the photo needs to cut and zoom into the important thing in it, the crop tool will help to do that.
then select the area that I want
I double click in the area to cut it off
I need to remove the number by way that don’t destroy the photo
smudge tool will make the number goes in good way .
as you see here I just used ones in line.
this what happened when I use the tool in the whole number.
3d design .¶
first you click in the “Sheetmetal” then click on “Create sketch” this will take to start your design in 2d
then you start choosing the phase that you will design in on it
you should start making your design it essay to do it .
I want to draw my drone so I start sketching the body first after you finish your click in finish
then I male extrude so it become 3d part you can change the thinness of the part by changing the extrude
clack on the phase the you want to add part on it
so you can add sketch
extrudate and it will be part of it
then I use shaper to make it smoother
so I want to make 6 angle so I use the circler pattern
you chose the object and the axil the you want the pattern on it
it’s good platform to use for 3d design it have a lot of thing will help you to do what you want, And it is free and you can open it form the browser and will not take space for your computer. But there is one problem that I faced in it, it was the lags issue. But every thing except this issue was fine.
first thing is to login
then you press in the create after that new document and you name it
this is how it will look when you start
because it is web sometime it need to refresh as I said before
then I click on front side to draw the sketch on it. when I press skitch I need to select the front plane
first I make cercal
then I make square for the shaft
I finish the first skitch for the gear
then I extrude it .
then I start the second sketch on the circle, I make the octagonal on the top of the cercal.
Then I chose the circler pattern
next thing I did is extrude the octagonal.
To export the design I right click on the part then I chose the export
then I edit the setting of the export and press on OK.
