With the popularization of computers and increasing computer performance, an increasing number of engineering and technical personnel in mechanical design work has taken a three-dimensional design software, such as Pro / ENGINEER, UG, SolidWorks, MDT, which improved the working efficiency, shorten the product development cycle. But most beginners because of insufficient familiarity with the software, without the use of techniques to master the software, resulting in efficiency is not high. Beginners often use the top menu on the screen and along the drop-down menu one level, they need to find the command, so using relatively simple, way of thinking will enable beginners to gradually adapt to the computer works, but the drawback is obvious : time, effort, cost eye. Therefore, the CAD software used to master certain skills, to improve the speed of CAD software for drawing is very useful.
SolidWorks 3D design software now to, for example, talk about how to improve drawing speed and efficiency.
First, define shortcut keys
Through years of experience using SolidWorks software, we feel the best way to improve the speed of drawing hands and brain to share hands with one hand and the keyboard, mouse hand movement. SolidWorks software is commonly used commands (such as the new, open, save, print, etc.) has a corresponding combination of the basic keyboard shortcuts. Shortcuts through these combinations can be directly related to the implementation of the order. However, these commonly used commands in the drawing process is often not very common. We can use SolidWorks software to customize keyboard features, the drawing process in order to define frequently used, as shown in Figure 1.
Figure 1, the Customize dialog box
I use SolidWorks software in the process, according to their habits, summarize a set of easy to use and easy to remember, effective shortcuts and specific settings shown in Table 1.
Table 1, the shortcut keys can be defined personal habits, as long as easy to remember to use on it. Shortcut keys used to be cooked, you will find in the drawing, there is little or essentially no longer use the menu, which greatly reduces the time and distance of mouse movement, so that the drawing speed is improved.
Second, customize their own templates
SolidWorks software provides many standard templates. But most businesses are based on the company's need to customize their own standard templates. When your template is set up, how to fill in the title bar of the relevant information? With "Notes" command one by one fill, so of course, but in product design know that, in product development and design process, the parts of the shape and material structure based on product needs and requirements of processing technology to change at any time , and this requires drawing the title bar of the weight, materials and other information have changed. With "Notes" fill in the contents of the command is not part models and associated attribute set up so that will always be a mark of engineering drawings and information does not match the actual components, to produce the inconvenience. Can not be drawing the title bar of the information and properties of the part model establish a link between what? The answer is yes. Specific practices are as follows:
1. First establish a component model, in its properties to add relevant information, such as "name, material, weight, quantity, notes," and other information, as shown in Figure 2, then save it.
Figure 2 Properties dialog box
2. Open a your own custom drawing template. Select "Edit drawing format" in the title bar, fill the corresponding position of the relevant content, and set the font and size. And select each of the elements, Property Manager in the left select "text format" in the "Connect to the property" icon, a "link to the Properties" dialog box, shown in Figure 3, select the "specified property from the drawing model "in the drop-down list box, select the appropriate item. After all links to be returned to the "Edit drawing" mode.

3. From the "File" menu, select "Save drawing format" command, in the pop-up dialog box "Save drawing format" select "user drawing format", then choose "Browse (B) ...", shown in Figure 4, in "Save As" dialog box, enter the appropriate name, and click "Save." Thus, the template to complete the relevant link building.

When the next call to this template, components model attribute information is automatically inserted into the title bar, when the attribute information of the part model changes, the title bar of the relevant information will also be automatically updated, which can greatly improve the speed of drawing .
