5.12.3.  2D derivation: Create your own Combination views (*.dw)

In the standard installation, you can enhance already existing 2D derivation views with your own views (optionally with different paper formats). In Edit mode you can easily perform adjustments.

Example: 3 views + isometric drawing in frame (JIS)

Example: 3 views + isometric drawing in frame (JIS)

In the 2D derivation window, you can select the following views:

  • Standard views

    • Front +Z

    • Back -Z

    • Right +X

    • Left -X

    • Top +Y

    • Bottom -Y

    • Isometric

    • Current view

  • Combination views

    • 3 views + isometric drawing in frame (ANSI)

    • 3 views + isometric drawing in frame (DIN)

    • 3 views + isometric drawing in frame (JIS)

    • 3 views + bill of material in frame (ANSI)

    • 3 views + bill of material in frame (DIN)

    • 3 projection views (EU)

    • 3 projection views (US)

    • 6 views + isometric drawing in frame (JIS)

    • 6 projection views (EU)

    • 6 projection views (US)

  • Own views (free combination of elements and different paper formats)

The following describes how you can create your own 2D derivation templates (views).

Tips

When creating a complete new template for a combination view, then you have to do this on file level (in Edit mode, there are not all options available).

Most effective is to use a similar template (.dw file) as base and to copy it. Afterwards you can either perform needed adjustments on file level or directly in the docking window 2D derivation in Edit mode.

The structure of help supports both methods.

Example:

translateable (Translateable)

In you have opened the dialog box Edit element in Edit mode, you can search the help for terms of the single input fields, "Translateable" for example.

When editing the dw file, you can search for the single key names as well.

[ELEMENT_isotitle]
type=text
parent=frame
text=ISO - Ansicht
position_x=287.71
position_y=240.00
position_w=113.83
position_h=10.00
text_size=6
width_factor=0.5
sizeable=false
translateable=true
rotation=horizontal
text_align=center

The two following sections "Basics" and "Edit Combination views in Edit mode" will give an overview. In the then following sections you can find details on the single elements.
