What is a Sheet Size?
A Sheet Size is a link to a SOLIDWORKS sheet format file, plus a few extra properties.
- The Sheet Format file (.slddrt file) to use
- The paper size
- Title block size and position
- Sheet margins
Blueprint vs Sheet size
Your Drew settings have one or more blueprints. Each blueprint has one or more Sheet Sizes. Usually you have a size for each paper size (A3, A4 portrait, etc).
You can open the Settings window via Tools > Drew > Settings or by using the gear icon within the Drew task pane.
Click a paper size to see the detailed settings:
For each Blueprint, you can define the default Sheet Size as well. You can do this in the Basics tab.
The default size will be used:
- For a new drawing
- When you add a sheet manually
- When you let Drew add a sheet for each unique weldment body
While creating a new drawing, you can always switch between paper sizes. Drew will make sure all views and tables fit nicely onto the sheet.
