Rotation of Assembly

Question asked by Kyle Hoyt on Jul 31, 2018

I was using Creo before I moved to a new company with Solidworks. There are a few things that I can not figure out if there are setting that I can adjust or if it just is the way it is.

  • I want to be able to turn of the "center spin". That is what it was called in Creo, what I would like is to have the assembly spin about where the mouse is at the time I click the middle mouse button. My Solidworks seems to be somewhat configured that way, but it seems to want to pre-select a random surface or edge behind that first object behind the cursor and spin around that instead.
  • Is there a way to display a triad on a part that I am putting into an assembly, or is the only to go to the ribbon and select "Move Component" and move it through 3d space without much control?

 

Thanks in advance for the help!
