Solution 1 of 2 for Quick Selection of Faces to Draft (Article and Video on The 3DVision Blog)

Article by Alin Vargatu, CSWE updated June 5, 2013


Sometimes you have to draft tens or even hundreds of faces at the same time. Don’t you get tired of selecting them one by one?

Fortunately, SolidWorks offers two very elegant solutions for selecting these faces in bulk. The first solution is using the Draft Analysis Tool for painting the faces to draft in a specific color. Once they are “painted” you can use the Appearance Based Selection technique described in an earlier article posted on our blog.

Please click on the image below to access the full article and video demonstrating this procedure that our friend Jeff Sweeney hosted on the 3DVision Blog last month.
