Using 3D Sketching Tools

The 2D sketch in red is a projection of the 3D sketch...In 3D sketches with nested contours, you can select the internal boundaries, but their profiles are not subtracted from the overall extrusion as is the case in 2D sketches...To use a 2D sketch mode in a 3D sketch, activate a planar face by adding a 3D sketch plane

2D to 3D Toolbar

The 2D to 3D tools help you convert a 2D drawing to a 3D part

Extruding in 2D to 3D

Click Extrude on the 2D to 3D toolbar, or click Tools, Sketch Tools, 2D to 3D, Extrude, and click in the graphics area to establish the direction of the extrusion...NOTE: For 2D to 3D conversion, you can specify the depth of a blind extrusion by selecting a sketch entity

Cutting in 2D to 3D

Click Cut on the 2D to 3D toolbar, or click Tools, Sketch Tools, 2D to 3D, Cut, and click in the graphics area to establish the direction of the cut...NOTE: For 2D to 3D conversion, you can specify the depth of a blind cut by selecting a sketch entity

2D to 3D Conversion Overview

You can convert 2D sketches into 3D models...The tools for the conversion process are on the 2D to 3D Toolbar

Creating 3D Splines

2D sketch on a 3D sketch plane...With some exceptions, such as the Z coordinate , editing 3D splines is similar to editing 2D splines

Using Imported 2D CAD Data

You can use legacy 2D CAD data by importing it into SolidWorks and you can convert 2D CAD drawings into 3D models...The 2D to 3D conversion process is usually faster than redesigning the part in SolidWorks

Using 3D Sketching Capabilities

When sketching in the 2D mode on a 3D plane, entities that are not on the active sketch plane are muted...In a 3D sketch, right-click in the graphics area and select Show Sketcher Triad

Sketch Relations in 3D Sketches

Many relations available in 2D sketches are available in 3D sketches...Relations between 3D sketch entities created on one sketch plane, and 3D entities created on other sketch planes

Example of 2D to 3D Conversion

The original drawing is imported into a part document as Sketch1. The sketch entities in the lower left corner become the Front view.

Approach to Modeling

In SolidWorks, you design in a 3D environment, and you create 2D drawings based on the 3D model...3D solid parts and assemblies, from which you generate 2D drawings

3D Sketch

You can add dimensions and most types of relations in a 3D sketch, using the same methods as you use in a 2D sketch...Search for 3D Sketching in the SolidWorks Online Help or see the 3D Sketching tutorial for more information about working in 3D sketches

DXF 3D Files
