Is it possible to customize dual dimensions in a SolidWorks drawing so that the dual dimension becomes a scaled dimension? Here's the situation:
I make 1/20th scale model trains, and whereas I initially draw all parts in prototype units (inches and feet) from actual railroad blueprints, I would like to show both prototype units and the scaled units of my model, in the same SolidWorks drawing. I would prefer not to have to create two different sets of models, one reflecting prototype units, the other, using the scale function, the units of the 1/20th scale model, and hence, two separate sets of SolidWorks drawings as well.
I am able to create dual, scaled dimensions in AutoCAD, for instance, simply by adding a scaling factor to a secondary dimension, and output one drawing, but is there anyway to do the same using dual dimensions in SolidWorks?
So far the best I have been able to come up with is to use the Override Value function on a primary dimension in the dimension dialogue box, but this requires manual data entry for every dimension. Surely SolidWorks can accomplish what AutoCAD can with just a few key strokes?
