2.6.2.  Insert model (2D) from the Standard and supplier parts library

The following describes how you can insert 2D single parts from the Standard and supplier parts library into your CAD system.

  1. In the PARTsolutions menu, click on Insert model or Insert 2D .[a]

    -> The display changes to the PARTdataManager.

Info

[a] When using AutoCAD, for example, Insert model is displayed by default. Whether 2D or 3D mode is used in the CAD depends on whether a 2D derivation has been created in PSOL or not. You can change the button display to Insert 2D by config.

Please also regard the setting under PARTdataManager -> Extras menu -> Settings... -> Export to CAD.

  1. In the Part selection, select the desired part. [7]

  2. In the Part view determine the desired characteristics.

  3. Creating a 2D derivation

    To do so, you have the following options:

    1. Click on the button 2D derivation .

      -> The docking window 2D derivation is opened.

      PARTdataManager - 2D view

      PARTdataManager - 2D view

      Select a view.[8]

    2. Alternatively you can also skip the opening of the 2D view and click on Transfer to CAD directly.

      The Choose view to pass... window is opened.

      Choose view to pass...

      Choose view to pass...

      Select the desired view.

      [Note] Note

      The behavior depends on the setting under PARTdataManager -> Extras menu -> Settings... -> Export to CAD menu

      PARTdataManager -> Extras menu -> Settings...

      PARTdataManager -> Extras menu -> Settings...

      If the option Always ask, if more than one alternative exists is selected, the dialog box Choose view to pass... appears in any case.
