Add dimension count: (2x), (3x)

You are here:

We have four cool buttons to add outer dimensions to any view.

Drew solidworks automatic dimensions

From left to right:

  1. Add three dimensions to two views: two to the main view and one to a secondary view. This only works for new drawings since we know the view orientation then.
  2. Add two dimensions to any view. Just select a view, then click this button
  3. Subtract one from the selected dimension. If you add a count to a dimension, like 10 (3x), clicking this button turns the dimension into 10 (2x).
  4. Add one to the selected dimension. Turns 10 (3x) into 10 (4x).

You can see these buttons in action below. They can be pretty addictive to play with…
