Tips & Tricks

Would you find it useful to be able to enter the dimensions immediately during the sketching in SolidWorks?

The following procedure allows you to measure shapes directly while drawing.

Go to System Options >> Sketch >> Check the following 2 options:

      - "Enable on screen numeric input on entity creation"
"Create dimension only when value is entered"

If, for example, you draw a circle in a sketch, you can enter the desired diameter directly. By pressing Enter, you will get a circle with the correct size.
