5 Productive SolidWorks Tips (REV-11)

5 SolidWorks Tips that may possible be helpful kick starting your 3D day.


1.You can make a perspective view in a drawing. First, create a named view in the model using the Orientation dialog box, then insert that view in the drawing.

2.Converted edges are fully defined. You can drag the endpoints of these edges, however, to change the end points to under-defined.

3.You can set up a gradient color schemes to appear in the graphics area in Tools, Options, System Options, Colors.

4.Color Display Mode (Line Format toolbar) allows you to toggle between displaying layer and explicit colors assigned to sketch entities and colors representing the status of that entities (defined, over defined etc.)

5.Coordinate values that appear in the Property Manager are measured relative to the sketch’s coordinate system, which can be different from Tools, Measure, values, which measure relative to a selected coordinate system (default is the model origin).
