ABOUT THE INSTITUTE
Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College was established by the
Nankana Sahib Education Trust [NSET]. NSET was founded in memory of the
most sacred temple of Nankana Sahib, birth place of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.
Shiromani Gurdwara Prabhandak Committee, Amritsar, a premier
organization of universal brotherhood, was the main force behind the mission
of 'Removal of Economic Backwardness through Technology'. With this
mission, a Polytechnic was started in 1953 and Guru Nanak Dev Engineering
College was established in 1956. The Trust deed was registered on 24th
February 1953 with a commitment by The Nankana Sahib Education Trust to
uplift the vast weaker section of Indian polity comprising Rural India by
admitting 70% students every year from Rural Areas.
was made to the nation on 8th April, 1956. The foundation stone of the College
Building was laid by Late Dr. Rajendra Prasad Ji, the First President of India.
Nearly 10,000 graduate and 300 Post Graduate Engineers have passed out
from this college during the last 50 years and are at present successfully
employed in India & abroad. The college is now ISO 9001-2000 Certified,
NBA accredited and have signed MOU with IOWA & Wayne State University
[USA] for exchange of students and faculty.

We really want to acknowledge the head of the department of production
& mechanical engineering department Er. N.D.Sharma & Dr. Sehjpal
Singh. They provide training in CAD Designing in solid works at our
campus. After that I acknowledge the Er.Aprinder Singh. Then I
acknowledge other teacher which provides helps in completing the
training of the solidworks. They provide full knowledge about that
course and provide all the notes and tutorials. Er. Aprinder Singh is so
co-operative and attentive. We learnt lots of things in the limited period
of time of training.

In the word CAD CAM, CAD means Computer Aided Designing. DWG Editor
is very strong in the 2D drafting than any other software. The use of DWG Editor in
the modern industry is limited to 2D drafting and for 3D modeling softwares like
Solid Works, Ideas, Pro/Engineer is used. In the modern industry DWG editor
replaces the drawing board and drafter.
1. THE X, Y CO-ORDINATE SYSTEM
Everything that you draw in DWG editor is exact. It will be more accurate
than you will ever need it to be. All objects drawn on the screen are placed there based on
a simple X, Y co-ordinate system. In DWG editor this is known as the World Co-ordinate
System (WCS). In order to work effectively with DWG editor, you have to work with
this system. Until you are comfortable and familiar with it, learning DWG editor will be
more of a chore.
2. How it works:
DWG editor uses points to determine where an object is located. There is
an origin where it begins counting from. This point is (0,0). Every object is located in
relation to the origin. If you were to draw a line straight out to the right from the origin,
this would be considered the positive X-axis. If you were to draw a line straight up, this
would be the positive Y-axis. A line has two points, a start point and an end point. DWG
editor works with the points to display the line on the screen.

GRAPHICAL INTERFACE OF DWG EDITOR
Move your cursor around the image above to find the names of various areas
of the screen.
Title Bar - This will show you what program you are running and what the
current filename is.
Pull-down menus - These are the standard pull-down menus through which you
can access almost all commands.
Main toolbar - This has most of the standard Windows icons, as well as the most
common AutoCAD commands.
G.N.D.E.C.LUDHIANA Page 7
Property toolbar - This toolbar gives a way to quickly modify an object's
properties, such as layer and line type.
Floating toolbar - This is a toolbar that can be moved around the screen, or
'docked' as the main toolbar is.
Drawing space - This is where you draw. You have an almost infinite area to
draw and this is just a 'section' of the entire space.
Scrollbars - These work like in other windows programs. You can also use the
PAN command to move around your drawing.
Status Bar Tray Icons - These icons give you updates on items like reference
files program updates and print status.
Command line - When you type a command, you will see it here. DWG editor
uses this space to 'prompt' you for information. It will give you a lot of
information and tell you where you are in the command.
Status bar - This allows seeing and changing different modes of drawing such as
Ortho, Osnaps, Grid, Otrack, etc.
INTRODUCTION TO DRAWING AND MODIFY
DWG editor allows you to have access to a large number of commands. The general rule
is that you will use 20% of the commands 80% of the time.
