    Solidworks Drawing does not reflect model shape

    Roy Parkes
      I am having problems with drawings not reflecting part models (see attached image)

      The problem occurs when trying to produce a 10X size drawing of a sectioned aerofoil vane. I then compare this to the vane layout for that section.

      The drawing is created OK, but when you select the outline of the aerofoil you see that the shape differs to the model by sometimes a considerable amount. I have played around with Image & performance to give maximum detail whilst in drawing mode to no avail. I am currently running Solidworks 2008 SP3.0 on an HP XW4300 Pentium(R) 4 workstation 3GHz CPU with 2Gb RAM). The graphics card is a NVidia Quadro FX1400 (128MB) using Driver 6.14.10.9163.

      The only way out I have is to use Unigraphics NX4 cad on the same workstaion which does seem to get the shape right.

      Has anyone out there a solution to problem?
