Does anybody know the exact size of the pink boundary box on drawing views?
i'm sure there was something in DriveWorks Solo, that was allowing to set that size, but don't know how it is in SolidWorks.
PS> the box is blue on image
Yeah, its is blue on the picture blue when selected, pink when highlighted
Anyway, I was actually using DriveWorks when and needed the size to precisely place a drawing view on a sheet. And from what i could see it is 11.88mm (5,94 to each side). A very unusual number so my guess would be that it was only accurate to 2 decimal place.
After your post I started investigating the option to increase the decimal place and luckily I found it.
The box is 10mm x 10mm and the value is accurate to 8 decimal place so to everybody else wondering: The exact size is 11.88mm regardless of size and scale of the drawing view.
OK, I am completely lost.
The boundary of a drawing in a Solidworks drawing isn't static...it is dynamic. If you part gets larger, then the drawing view gets larger.
I do know that if you place an empty view, then it is a specific size. Are you referring to that size?
Nevermind....I think I get it.....you are referring to the offset distance from the view border to the bounding box of the part.
I am curious.....why do you want to know this information
Yes it is the offset distance off the view border I am referring to. Sorry if that caused to much confusion.
Well, when DriveWorks is inserting a view on a drawing it refers to the top left corner of the offset view border (the blue dotted line on both pictures) and not the center of the drawing view as SolidWorks API does (for unknown reasons) - So when I mix these two I need to have some clue as to where drawing views are placed on the drawing so that the end result looks somewhat decent.
Ahhh....understood. Thank you for explaining that.
