Printing procedure

Aprint is now required of the completed pulley layout drawing and I assume a printer has already been installed and configured. Select the Print/Plot option from the File menu and the Plot Configurati6n dialogue box will appear on the screen (Fig. 1.12). Click at the top left corner on the Print/Plot Setup Default Selection option and the Print Setup dialogue box appears and confirms the printer specification (Fig. 1.13). My printer is a Canon BJ-230 using standard A4 size paper. Check that your printer is listed and the other details are as above. Click OK. The Print/Plot Setup box returns. We need a copy of the screen image so select Display. Check the paper size box. Click on the Rotation and Origin button and the Plot Rotation and Origin dialogue box shown in Fig. 1.14 appears. The drawing has been produced with the paper turned through 90, so click on the plot rotation setting of 90 and OK. The first Plot Configuration box returns. Toensure that our print is the maximum size for the paper area available, click on the Scaled to Fit box in the bottom right-hand corner. Clickon the Preview and Full buttons and the print details willTo set the fillet radii choose Fillet from the Construct menu and the command line will read: Command: _fillet Polyline/Radius/<Select first object>: Type R and the line will change to En ter fillet radius <2 . 0000>: 14. Press <Enter> and the line returns to Command: . Note that the value of 2.0000 above was the previous value used. The value of 14 mm is the current set value for the fillet radii and will remain until we modify it. Choose Fillet again from the Construct menu and the line returns to Command: _fillet Polyline/Radius/<Select first object>: Click on one line and the command line changes to Select second obj ect:. Click on the second line of the pair and the fillet is drawn. Repeat the procedure for the other pairs of lines. The situation now is that we have a continuous thin line but would like to define the tangency points and the fillet arc centre. Finally we need to thicken up the profile for a finished outline. From the Modify menu choose Edit Polyline as previously described and adjust the line width to 0.4 mm. Repeat this again for the other pairs. Turn off the Ortho and Snap features since the line we are about to draw will come from an exact point which will not coincide with points on our grid. In order to find the centre points for the fillet radii we can again use the Draw menu, select Line, then click on Assist and in the Running Object Snap box make sure there are no other entries and select Centre. The command line readsof the arrow and another point above and to the right of the arrow. The command line now reads <Base poin t or displacement> /Mul tiple:. Click on the arrow tip. The command line reads Second point of displacemen t: .Click on a point about I5mm vertically below and the copy arrow appears. It is now necessary to reduce the size of the arrow so select Scale from the Modify menu and the command line reads Select obj ects :. Draw a box as described above to enclose the arrow and the command line reads Base point:. Click on the tip of the arrow and the command line reads <Scale factor>/Reference:. Type 0.75 and press <Enter>. The reduced size arrow is drawn. Repeat the procedure for the third arrow with a scale factor of 0.5. Select the Move command from the Modify menu to reposition the arrows on the ellipse as follows. The command line reads Select obj ects :. Draw a box enclosing the arrow and press <Enter>. The command line reads Base point or displacement:. Click on the centre point of the tail of the arrow and the command line changes to Second point of displacement:. Reposition the arrow on the ellipse. The arrow will now be in the horizontal position with its tail on the correct spot but needs to be rotated so that its tip also lines up with the profile of the ellipse. Select Rotate from the Modify menu and the command line reads
