Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Looking at sheet options, part of SOLIDWORKS 2013-2017: Sheet Metal Design.
When working with Sheet metal, there are a few sheet options we might want to look…at, to make things a little bit easier for us.…If we go up here to the Options tab at the top of the screen and open it up.…You can see that we've got a few different options under System Options or Document Properties.…So, under Document Properties, you come down to the very bottom, there's actually…a tab for Sheet metal. So, we can add a lot of data here.…We can look at bend lines, I can change the directions and colors of different…items here. I can look at bend notes, and where I'd…like them if I want to add bend notes above, below, or with leader, if I'm…going to add them to the drawing. I can come down and change the text, I can…change the Leader options. A lot of things here I can just kind of…play with to make sure that's looking good.…
I also want to point out up here under detailing, auto instead on creation is a…much thing that we can check mark here in turn on.…One of the ones I like to use a lot is center marks because,all times chief metal…
