THE MECHANICAL SETUP DIALOG

The Mechanical Toolkit has its own toolbar for quick and easy reference to all your favourite functions. You may customize the Toolkits default settings to suit your individual preference by modifying the Mechanical Toolkit Setup dialog.

 

 

SCREENSHOT

 

 

 

The ‘Configuration file path’ in the Mechanical Setup dialog, tells the Mechanical Toolkit where to store its settings data. The toolkit will not work correctly if this file has not been specified. AllyCAD 3.4. has been supplied with a standard “ISO Mechspecs.ini” file situated in your CAD user directory. Should you therefore wish to switch to an alternate configuration file, simply browse for it by clicking on the ‘browse’ button.

The mechanical toolkit setup may further be configured by specifying the pen colour, linetype and linewidth for the solid, hidden and centre lines used to draw the mechanical components. In addition, the ‘Annotation Setup’ displays the Annotation Setup dialog used to customize the Mechanical Toolkit’s annotation features. The ‘Welds Symbol file’ in this dialog specifies the AllyCAD symbol file that should be used to draw the weld symbols. This file must be specified before you can draw welds.

You may also specify the weld annotation layer name, the tolerance annotation layer name and the surface finish annotation layer name in the Annotation Setup dialog. If no such layer exists in your drawing, then this will be created as soon as you draw a weld or tolerance annotation.

Other areas that may be configured include the relative scale with which the annotation symbols are drawn, the annotation text size, the length of the arrow head in the weld annotation as well as the width of the arrow head in the weld annotation.

The mechanical toolkit in AllyCAD 3.4, is a powerful set of tools designed to make the drawing of mechanical components quicker and easier. By customizing it to suit your individual needs, you will be assured of even faster throughput, saving you time and increasing your productivity.
