Re: The Big TechDraw Comments Thread

I was hoping this would be simple,but apparently not. I have a large part with a threaded section. I need to include the thread details in the drawing for the machinist. So the part can be made in bulk (I have already 3d printed a prototype) I think you are all seeing where this is going... I have a...

Re: Fusing array fail

The Array itself has a fuse option. You can set it during creation or change it in the data tab. It works well if I set it to true and needs no fusion afterwards. That's a nice tip.
