I have a plan for a model boat and two jpeg images from the plan to the same scale , one is the side view of the plan and one of the top view. I need to draw the the bulkheads  which are basically an end view derived from the side and top views.

Can anyone explain how to show "SW-Cutting Length-Outer" on a drawing of a sheet metal part? I can find it in the properties of the cut list, but can't see how to include that in drawing notes?   I'm actually after the perimeter, which shows up in the Measure tool, but seemingly nowhere else.

I am trying to complete the "Creating a Drawing from a 3D model" tutorial under the SOLIDWORKS tutorials for working with AutoCAD files. When I try to draw the flange part (model view, isometric) the concave fillet where the base of the cylinder meets the fastening plate seems to disappear. The lines that indicate the outer walls of the cylinder… (Show more)

Click to view contentSo I've been roped into using SW instead of Inventor for a project, and as I was making my drawing for the assembly, the second sheet just disappeared. it shows up in the tree on the left side, but there's no sheet, and my views are either invisible or not there, or I just can't see them. The first sheet is perfectly normal and in position, no… (Show more)
