I may have missed it in the options somewhere. But I need to get a decal perfectly straight and perfectly centered. I am having a difficult time doing this by eye balling it and dragging it.
While eyeball is our only option now......you should be able to do this in Visualize 2018 with our new Decal system
Cool. I have resorted to taping a ruler to my monitor. And loading an orthro camera, lol!
Did you try to apply the decal at the assembly level?
In Solidworks not Visualize? Yes. I have all the decals with the assemblies but they do not import correctly and are always blank inside of Visualize. They come in as appearances.
Apply the decal to a part which is sized as per label then locate using mates. This also allows you to add part number, just use configurations for the various profiles required.
Make a small extrusion on the surface the size of the decal and locate it correctly. Apply the decal to the face of that extruded surface.
p.s. cool model. Not sure where you work, but I've got an atlas 2 post in my garage. Having a lift is a game changer.
