In this Tech Tip, you will learn to use the Offset Definition function to edit the definition of elements and offset them from geometry to make them external to the sketch.
Some key points to take away from this Tech Tip are:
– This function only works on sketch elements that are offset from the part, not elements in the active sketch.
– When editing the offset, you may need to exit and re-enter the sketch to update the offset.
In this Tech Tip you will learn to add a front view to a drawing using a 3D Part.
Some of the key points to take away from this Tech Tip are in generative drafting, you can only generate a front view when you have a 3D Part open. All projected views are established from…

This tech tip from the Tata Technologies I GET IT Team will demonstrate how to show the sketch dimensions and tolerances using Generative Drafting (i.e…Front View). Follow through the steps below to try it for yourself! Step 1 Draw any sketch with dimension having tolerances on any of the plane (XYRead more
Increase Competitiveness Through Integrated Mold & Tool Design The pressure on mold and tool-makers is relentless. Time is always of the essence, and as cycle times reduce, further demands are made. Mold & tool production that took 4 months last year is now demanded in 3 months this year. And so it goes on. Even when a part design isRead more
In today’s post, I would like to focus on Functional Modeling. I’ve always wondered why this workbench never really caught on. Speaking purely from an FM1 trigram standpoint, it comes with the MCE add-on that most people who have PLM Express have added on to their CAC (CAC+MCE). FM1 gets you the Functional Modeling Part Workbench. First let’s talk about what it was created for,Read more
