Hello I need to figure out how to dimension XYZ locations in Solidworks as I do in PowerShape can anyone point me in the right location?
For all instances on the same plane, you can use a table driven pattern and either enter the locations directly or import it from an Excel spreadsheet.
Solidworks does not have the capacity to dimension in this fashion.
Is there a way in the model to give a home point or "work plane" then call that X0Y0Z0 then be able to detail all points I pick (center of my .118 sphere) to be detailed in the model? Or is there a probing add on that we can lay down points and get a detailed print from that? This is nothing more than a poor man's probing routine without a $10,000 blum probing system.
yes, reference planes are easy to create.
then create a sketch on that reference plane and inference (concentric) the cylindrical shaft(s).
you can create many reference planes.
if the tips were conical instead of spherical it might make it more clear as to the where the sketch points are.
