See what happens when you are not paying attention! You all of a sudden find yourself in a New Year!
Welcome to Twenty – Fifteen
This holiday period has been quite different for me. Normally this time of year you would find me sitting on a beach posting images like this. (South West Rocks – Mid North Coast NSW)However due to a number of different and varying circumstances I find myself instead working though out this time of year. Which must be said was not a bad thing! It has given me the change to work on and catch up on a few updates for our 2015 range of vehicles.
It was whilst I was working on a few new parts that I have the opportunity to have a look at and use a simple but really nice enhancement to Dimensions in SOLIDWORKS 2015 – Enhanced Capabilities of Angle Dimensions.
When using Smart Dimensions first select the line. Then if a collinear Vertex is selected a cross-hair will be displayed on the vertex.By then selecting one of the arms of the cross-hair.The preview dimension is then created between the line and the imaginary (in this case) vertical line. The dimension can then be set and accepted. It might just be a minor enhancement but it continues the theme of improved functionality of many of the tools in SOLIDWORKS 2015.
