General Usage Instructions

A detailed description of the functionality of each command can be found in my website https://sites.google.com/site/avcplugins/saw

Sawing Table (SAW)

Select all the details in the assembly (solids) and call the SAW command. If nothing is selected, the program will query to select.

After running the program, the selection can be saved - use the general A>V>C> settings. You can select any type of object, but the program will use only 3D-solids and will ignore all other objects.

Options SAW command:

Switch Set Of Options: Quickly switch between options-set by its number. Switching conveniently, for example, you need to insert to drawings columns-set #1 and to Cutting program columns-set #2.

TUne: This option opens the dialog window or query to select setting.

In the settings dialog, you will find all the options as in the - Saw option. And besides this, the dialog is available for the general settings of all plugins A>V>C>.

In the process of working, the program displays the sizes of the found solidities in the console. Then a list is created with the given columns. The list will automatically be copied to the clipboard. You can insert it into any document or spreadsheet.

Next, will be called “Paste To Table” command for insertion data into the AutoCAD table. If this is not required - just press Esc.

The plugin works only with objects such as 3D-solid. If you use blocks, then explode them before invoking the command SAW or use block editor. The plugin is designed for use in the design of sheet material details. In these details there is always the main plane that determines how to measure it. This algorithm does not work for spheres, torus and other shaped details. The plugin (without AVC_Names plugin) cannot measure sweep and therefore not suitable for curved parts. If the program cannot measure the detail then the plugin will display a warning window and the problem with details will be painted in red. For removing red illumination start any other command.

Follow the messages on the console. There may be program messages.

-SAW

This command variant has many options in the object query, to configure the further operation of the program. This option of the command does not open the dialog when you select the TUne option, but prompts you to enter the settings from the console. In addition, the command disables the dialog for selecting a table. The list of columns in the console is edited as a string separated by semicolons. To return to the default value enter single % symbol.

The list of column headers is not editable. You can use the console version of the command to write macros and create your own buttons.
