Tutorial: how to easily produce a picture to upload with your model

Most of the CAD systems provide a command to save as an image the current view. Usually, this command is available in the "save as" menu or in the option menu

  1. Step 1:

    The following picture shows the "save as image" command in Solid Edge (Solidworks has a similar command)

  2. Step 2:

    CATIA provide a capture command in the tools menu

  3. Step 3:

    In case your system does not provide a "save as image" or a capture command, then you can use the "print screen" function available on the keyboard of your PC: look at the keyboard and find the PRTSC key (usually it is a function key, that means that you have to press the FN key and the PRTSC keys simultaneously). This action will copy the image of your screen in the clipboard; then you can use any image editor (like windows paint) to copy and save the image.

  4. Step 4:

    You can also use the windows capture tool to capture the whole screen or just a region
