Please help us .
based on your question with no further explanation I assumed that you need something like this??
I'm talking about this type of dimensions .
can you upload a 3D model??
how to attach the file ?
How can I attach a file to a forum post?
simply, in the lower right corner, there is "attach"button..:) or maybe drag n drop could work as well..
Got it, just select the ISO view of the part and in feature manager in "dimension type" tab choose "REAL"
Thank you @marek
you are welcome:)
Putting the dimension lines in Iso mode is, as you've discovered easy, and one has been able to do that for ages, but the dimension text though... that is what I've never found.
just select the dimension itself....
I got it , Thank you for support
If you mean like the following
then , as far as i know, you can't.
If I'm wrong, I'll gladly be informed how to do it.
yes Peter , i'm asking about like this
I'm using 2017 version
In ISO view give dimension and Select dimension --> Right click --> Display Option --> Change Plane.
It will show you few possibility.
Thank you Manish
Still doesn't do anything about the actual text. Yes you can change the plane of the dimension (lines) but the text is still not according to the plane, or am I overlooking something ?
Before change plane
After changing plane
Compare that to
The last one has been able to be done in 2d drawing package for 20+ years or so. And used to be how one did it when actual drawing it with pen and paper.
In Solidworks though the slant of the text is dictated by the slant of the dimension itself and I for one can't find how to alter the slant of the dimension text. Which means that one is left with it looking as if you couldn't be bothered to do it properly.

What's the ER number for this? I'd vote for it.
If it would actually put correct dimensions down for a piping iso drawing I would have bothered requesting it when I started using Soldiworks years ago but seeing as it doesn't...
...the slant of the text is neither here nor there because who cares if it doesn't look professional if one doesn't intend to use it anyways.
if you change your drafting standards to ANSI the text will all be horizontal
with drafting standards set to ISO the some of the text moves back to vertical
