my default views is not aligned so I have problem while exporting assembly to drawings. if i try to go in drawing mode to sketch tools and align to selected line it goes to some weird view position.
Two videos to follow when compilation is finished....
the easiest way to correct this, might be to update your standard views.
Get a proper view perhaps using "normal to".
Then hit the space bar and choose "update standard views" and choose the proper view.
But i would recommend to align your components correctly to your origin and standard planes. But i don't know what went wrong and what's to do to achieve this...
dear Heiko, i will try this. it is strange but there is about 300 parts in this assembly and at start it was aligned as it should be.
Is the first component aligned with the Origin Planes and Fix(ed)?
yes. first component is fixed. i did not create any custom plane. i have few fixed items. can that be issue?
You did not fully answer my question.
Is the first part aligned with it’s Base Origin Planes (can you Attach it here)?
And is the first assembly component aligned with the assembly Origin Planes (can you Attach 1st component and assembly files here)?
hope this is what you ask me. it seems that origin in assembly is not in the centre like it was at first time in first main part.
The Origin Planes will have the names Top, Front and Right Plane.
To answer my question - I would expect the visibility of those planes in the part and in the assembly file to be made visible.
Can you Attach the *.sldprt and the *.sldasm files here? (Only need that one *.sldprt file.)
How much SolidWorks training and experience do you have?
I suspect that the solution will be as simple as Floating the base part and adding Mate constraints between the Origin Planes of the part and the assembly.
Assuming all components have been properly constrained - they should all reposition with the base component.
But I also suspect that the other components have not been properly constrained.
It might be easier to make a custom view in this case, but I would strongly recommend getting to the source of the issue.
Is there a logical reason that these two Origins are not aligned?
My guess is that someone Floated this part and moved it.
I am new to Solidworks as you can see working 3 months but used before for some simple design for 3d print.
I don't go to third party sites.
Reply here and click on the Advanced Editor in upper right corner and then Attach directly to next response.
there is no an reason for that. maybe some of my colleagues move it when trying to change views while I was on holidays.
Don't go on holidays.
That only results in more work for you.
here is file as requested.
many thanks for your time and explanation
Wait for the second video before you make any changes....
Given that your assembly is already "done" and realigning the base component might cascade to issues of placement of other components - the easy workaround might be to create a new Custom View for use in the 2D drawing.
this custom view works perfectly but of course i have one more Q. i create all needed custom views with perfect alignment but my top view need to be rotated by 180°. is it possible to make it via custom view or it is better to rotate it in drawing mode?
Jurica Bosnar it is by FAR better to fix the top view or create another custom view than to use the rotate view command.
this is excellent two solutions. as you mentioned there is more than 100 parts so for this purpose for now best solution will be with this custom view for me.
once again, many thanks for excellent support!!!
