The Solids menu is a sub-menu to the Mechanism menu, which is a sub-menu to the Add menu.
The Solids toolbar is above the graphics-area.
Use the Solids menu and Solids toolbar to add:
|•||Profile elements [with Extrusion elements] to Parts.|
|•||Hole elements that cut through Profile elements|
Profiles, and Holes, need a sketch-loop, which you must add as sketch-elements with the Part-Editor . Profiles are the basis of the MechDesigner Solids.
|•||Auto-Profiles to each Part, but their shapes are limited to Arcs and Lines to give an oval shape around each Part.|
|•||Polylines to 2D-Cams and Gears-Pairs. If the Polyline is 'closed', you can add a Profile to the Polyline to make Cams and Gear-Pairs become 'Solid'.|
Note: To import a Solid from CAD, edit a CAD-Line to open the CAD-Line dialog-box
