1.5.3.4. How can I search for parts by a self drawn sketch?

You can conduct a search based on self-drawn sketches.

[Note] Note

The more specific the sketch, the less are needed. Possibly you will get best results with only one single sketch.

  1. Open the list field under Search and then click on Sketch 2D.

  2. In order to draw the first sketch, click on the desired view (Top, Front, Side).

  3. Select black as your color.

  4. Select the circle function.

  5. With your left mouse button, click into the center of the sketch and pull open a black circle by holding down the left mouse button.

  6. Change your color to white.

  7. With the left mouse button, click into the midpoint of the sketch and pull open a smaller white circle whilst holding down the left mouse button.

  8. Change the color back to black.

  9. Change tool to paintbrush.

  10. Set the line thickness to 14.

  11. Draw the spokes.

  12. Click into the next view box in order to make your second sketch. Draw a second version of the hand wheel. The settings are already set correctly.

  13. Click on Search.

    [Note] Note

    After a search was conducted, the created sketches are saved and are available for use upon next launch (in the current situation they are available for use until you log off).

  14. The search results are listed.

  15. Open a hit.
