LinkedIn Learning author David Antanavige introduces all the current sketching features in SOLIDWORKS xDesign.
- [Instructor] Once we have some geometry created inside…of our sketch, we might…want to manipulate it using the other tools available to us.…So I mentioned that we have the dimension tool here,…so if I draw a few lines over here…on a separate part of the screen...…Hitting Escape.…I'm going to go on and toggle the dimension tool.…This is basically a smart dimension tool,…so you can single-click on an item…and depending on where you position it,…it's going to give you the dimension you want,…so straight on, in a vertical dimension…and a horizontal dimension,…or if you select another item,…at an angle, and the specific angle depending…on which quadrant around the item…that you place the dimension on.…
Once you do single-click and create a dimension,…you're going to want to go ahead and put in a value,…so I'm going to put 75 for that,…and now we have the dimension created,…we can reposition it by single-clicking on it…and dragging it and moving around.…We can also double-click on it…and edit it if we want to after the fact.…
