|This task shows you how to create a graphic. You need to have a graphical representation of a component before you can build the component. You also need to create a graphic to use as an on/off sheet connector.|
|1.||Click the New Detail Sheet button. A detail sheet is created.|
|2.||Click the New View
button and then click in the detail sheet. A detail view is created in the
sheet. The detail view is where you will build the graphic.
|3.||Click on one of the drafting tools,
such as Line, to build the graphic. In the image below a simple part
has been created.
When building a graphic for a component that is to be placed inline, you must place the center of the graphic at the origin, as shown in the image above.
|The same methodology is used to
build an on/off sheet connector. To ensure that an on/off sheet connector
can be placed correctly you should start building it at the origin and
proceed in the positive X direction, as shown in the image below.
To add a component or an on/off sheet connector to a catalog see Storing objects in a catalog.
