Initiating 2D Mechanical Layout

Apply to: 2016 R1
More Info

In order to approach all subjects in the Mechanical Layout category, such as Initiating layout in 2D, Inserting rails in the layout, Inserting gutters in the layout, Inserting components in the layout (customised), Inserting components in the layout (layout), etc, in a neater way, we’ve created an electrical design to control the direct start of an engine. It is the same design used in the Electrical Schematic.

After concluding the Design Schematic, we head to the creation of the 2D mechanical layout of the project. The electrical schematic is available in this article. This part will be essential to verify whether the chosen board will bear all the dimensioned components and, mainly, show the person responsible for the assembly the disposition of the components and the necessary drillings on the board. Inside the QC Mechanical Layout, it’s essential to know that the scale used in all components is standard 1:1, that is, one design unit correspondes to 1 millimeter in real life. In the next few articles, you will see how to continue your project, how to continue a few steps and how to form the Mechanical Layout: how to insert the board, the rails, the gutters and the project components.

How to add a board

Just like any other component, you can register different models of electric panels, with different sizes and different makers. The standard library on the QC contains one board. Read the instructions below on how to insert it into the project.

Inserting a panel…
  1. Go to the Pages palette
  2. Double-click on Electrical Layout
  3. Open the Component palette
  4. Access the folder QUADROS E ACESSÓRIOS PARA LAYOUT
  5. Open the folder called CEMAR
  6. Double-click on the component called CAIXA PADRÃO
  7. Position the component in the center of the page
  8. Name the component PANEL 1

There you have it, your panel has been inserted!
