Améliorations des dimensions réduites de SOLIDWORKS 2016 [VIDEO]

Article by Scott Durksen, CSWE updated September 28, 2015


New in SOLIDWORKS 2016 is the ability to easily add foreshortened dimensions to any drawing view.  In a previous blog post, I provided methods to create foreshortened dimensions in detail views.  Now SOLIDWORKS 2016 makes it much faster and intuitive to generate these details.

Adding SOLIDWORKS 2016 Foreshortened Dimensions

You can simply select an edge in a detail view created from either a Standard or Section view and it will become foreshortened automatically.  If you need to select other edges that are initially not visible, you can expand the detail view circle, add the dimension and reduce the detail circle, then right-click the dimension on the side you need foreshortened and select Display Options > Foreshorten.
