Parametric Design on Belt Conveyor Drums Based on VBA


Article Preview

As an example to belt conveyor drums, this article introduces a parametric drawing method. The method uses inlays language VBA to secondary develop AutoCAD and achieves the design process of components through the procedure. The parametric design method reduces the designer’s duplicated drawing works which carried on to some kinds of components, and enhances the drawing quality and efficiency.
