Is it possible to make customised detail circles as given in images here? All lines and arc should be 'elastic' like we can change length and angle and rad of circle.
What you can do to do this is first sketch a profile using the sketch tools.
When you have done this you can click detail view with the sketch selected.
The detailed view will be the same as the closed profile.
With kind regards,Peter
I've just tried to modify the sketch circle for a detail view (right click an existing detail > Edit Sketch) into a spline. It does accept the new sketch, but the detail view remains a circle. That is the only possibility that I know.
It does seem that you are trying to copy AutoCAD or something. Why don't the default SolidWorks details work for you? You are already able to modify the position and size of the detail.
That circle looks same as feature, i want some different look in drawing.Also i like to explore new posibilitites.
You can change the detail view sketch and set it to profile
The picture you've posted are from 2D drawings where you need to draw the detail view whereas in 3d the detail view is created automatically based on the details view profile. If you look at the detail view created by those profile, they would not be same compared to what you get in 3d. So better use the available tools instead of blindly following what is given.
No Sir, I am not following blindly. As i said i like to explore new possibilities,new options. The current option of circle looks same as feature.To avoid that i use broken circle and dashed line method.But this option was looking great and thought it would be good if its possible in solidworks. Drawing manually the shape works,but wish automatic option would have been it a lot easier.
No there is no such option and I would rather stay away from it. You can use circle or rectangle (with font line changed) and/or explore the different options for the detail view like with leader, etc.
Is this what you're after?
Draw the outline of the detail sketch first, then with the sketch selected click 'detail view' command.
In detail view Property manager on the left just select full outline. I don't think you can get the whole shape like on autocad to follow, but this is closer to what is standard
yeah,but in detail view that profile shape also appears which i dont want. I was just checking if such option was available as i liked that profile.
Don't matter how long you use Solidworks, we can learn something everyday - never messed with shapes in detail views, till now thanks Deepak Gupta & Wojciech Paterski
