Creating (a) Standard Part File for efficiency
This tutorial is about making a default part file that you can open in future – knowing that specific key parameters are already there – minimizing the amount of repetitious work in the daily routine of using Alibre Design Xpress and Alibre Design – Basic, Pro, or Expert.
- You will learn starting the Alibre Design program, and three ways to open a new part file.
- You will then learn about setting up properties: materials, dimensions, & applying options.
- You will also learn about workspace options, and parameters available for working simply.
It is assumed you already have Alibre Design Xpress or other versions of Alibre Design installed,
and that you have a working knowledge of windows and keyboard shortcuts.
Step 1: 3D CAD - Start Alibre Design, Open New Part
On your windows Desktop, Double Click the Alibre Design Icon.
When it opens, In the Home Window, Click the New Part icon,
- or select File, New, Part,
-- or use the Hotkey selection of Ctrl+Shift+T.
