What ISO or BS drawing standards does solidworks refer to?
For the most part, we do try to keep in line with 129-1 and the 128-XX series for basic drawing requirements. However, given the nature of ISO/BSI standards, this is a complicated question. There are dozens and dozens of individual ISO standards which are sometimes not in sync with each other. More to the point, which areas of the standards are you interested in knowing about?
Can SolidWorks be made to follow AS 1100? Is there a patch that can be applied to SolidWorks? AS 1100 is almost the same as the withdrawn BS 308.
Ah, Australian Standard is a different critter. It is mostly like ISO, but there are some noticeable differences. For example, the section view cutting line identifiers and detail view identifiers are completely difference in AS. The are more in line with architectural conventions. Currently, AS is not directly supported by SW automatic functions. However, for the most part, users are not prevented from applying AS standards to their documents with alternative methods. Are there specific area you'd like to see supported?
as an Aussie educator I would like to be able to set up my part and assembly templates to AS1100 i.e. +Z axis up, +X axis to the right and +Y axis into the page. I have followed the usual advice e.g. from SolidWorks and on Youtube which results in the RGB origin indicator showing what I want but it is not quite AS1100. I think I also require flips of the original Right and Top plane normals i.e. when I begin a sketch on the new Front plane I would like +Z up and +X to the right, when I begin a sketch on the new Right plane I would like +Z up and +Y to the right.
Is this Possible?
