Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Checking out virtual sharps, part of SOLIDWORKS Tips & Tricks.
- [Instructor] For this week's tip,…we're going to be talking about virtual sharps.…So in my first example here you can see…I've got two straight lines segments,…I have an eight inch long segment,…and a 10 inch long segment,…and I'm going to go ahead and add a fillet right over here.…Click on the Fillet Tool, type in half of an inch,…and go ahead and choose this point right there.…Click on OK, and now I have that little fillet,…and notice the dimensions here,…continue on to where these two lines intersect,…and what that is called is a virtual sharp position.…Now if you already had those line segments…and you added the radius first,…SOLIDWORKS automatically knows that, more than likely,…you'd prefer to add a dimension to the virtual sharp,…and it keeps it that way, so it's pretty handy.…
Now If I go over here to my next example,…and I add a dimension, and I click on this line right here,…it gives me only that length.…If I go ahead and I click on this point here,…out to this radius here, it gives me to the center point,…
