How do I Use Delta CAD?

Learning to use DeltaCad involves understanding how to navigate its tool set. DeltaCad is a computer-aided design (CAD) program that drafting professionals use to produce graphics illustrating structures to be manufactured (i.e., houses, printers, circuit boards). Learning to use DeltaCad involves understanding how to navigate its tool set, which includes line and shape-drawing functions, and functions zooming into and out of your drawings. Becoming proficient in DeltaCad makes it possible to create the precision graphics your manufacturing teams need to produce the physical product those graphics represent.

1. Open DeltaCad and click the "Line" tab, which holds functions for drawing lines. 2. Click the button displaying the downward-pointing arrow. Click near the upper left of the drawing window and release the mouse. This action places the starting point of a vertical line. 3. Drag down for a short distance, then press the "5" keyboard key, followed by "Enter." This creates a vertical line 5 inches long. The line is the first of an image of an abacus you'll make. This project will introduce you to many of DeltaCad's features. 4. Click the toolbar's right-pointing arrow, and click the top of the first line you drew. Drag right slightly, then enter "7," followed by "Enter." DeltaCad will complete a horizontal line 7 inches long. Its left point matches the top point of the vertical line. 5. Click the vertical line's lower point, then complete another horizontal line 7 inches long using the instructions from the previous step. 6. Draw a vertical line that completes the rectangle of the abacus' outline by clicking on the right point of the top horizontal line. Drag downward slightly, press "5" and "Enter" to complete the line. 7. Click the "Select" tab, and click any point below and to the left of the abacus' lower left point. Drag the mouse above and to the right of the abacus' top right point to define a selection rectangle. Click the mouse to complete the selection. The abacus will turn red to indicate its selection. 8. Press "Control-C" to copy the outline to the clipboard. Press "Control-V" to create a duplicate of the outline. 9. Click the "Sc" (Scale) button, type "0.1" and press "Enter" to make the duplicate outline one -enth the size of the original abacus outline. This forms the first bead of the abacus. 10. Click the "Shape" tab, and click the rectangle tool. Click the top of the abacus bead from step 9 and drag upward until the mouse reaches the top of the abacus. Click again to complete the first bead shaft of the abacus. 11. Duplicate the abacus bead and shaft by using the instructions in steps 7 and 8. Repeat this step four times to make a total of five shafts with beads, which completes the abacus.
