Saving your work to file

Ensure that you save drawings to a location that you can retrieve/find them again next time i.e. into your network folder with an appropriate name.


Personalising your page - lines

We can set the line thickness to match the line weight that you would have done this as a technical drawing with instruments. With 2D design you can match all of the drawing conventions to NZ 1100 drafting stds required for NCEA


Personalising your page - text

Click the layers button & select layer 2 for the text to be located on. Add a description of what is on this layer.


Personalising your page – text size

The default font is Arial – this already set to the technical drawing stds. Set the height to be either 5 or 3mm depending on what it is describing.

  • Press o.k. to activate the text entry box.
  • Type in capitals.

Personalising your page – text location

Use the select tool to highlight and drag the text into


(Click on the middle handle)


Personalising your page – text Info

  • This is generic information that can be altered for any drawing.
  • Because you have set it on a new layer, this layer can be switched off if you do not require it, or want to over ride it on a new layer!

Personalising your page -

3rd Angle symbol

Click on the layers button, select layer 3 as the current layer & give it an suitable description.


Personalising your page -

3rd Angle symbol

  • Construct a centre line
  • 5mm pitch
  • Line width = fine

Select the line tool & click anywhere on the page.

  • Click the Abs button to now be Rel (relative) plotting the line to go along 34mm & up 0mm – o.k.
  • Select construction points on LHS palette.
  • Select the attach tool on the RHS palette.
  • Attach a construction node onto the end of the centre line.

Without changing the setting now set the Rel sizes to make a construction point 7mm from the end of the line.

Double click on the line tool, bringing up settings for length & angle – 7,90.


Attach the new line to the const point

Select the new line

Use the attach tool on each end of the horizontal line to create the mirror line.


Put line type back

to an outline.

Make 2 circles attached to the

Centre lines – r5mm, r2.5mm.


3rd Angle symbol

Connect the ends of each line.
