Okay so If i use the wrong terms.....
When creating say a boundry surface the software shows you the iso parms (lines) on the surface that helps to define the form. Is there a way to have these turned on at all times?
No, not really. But if you wanted to you could click on a face and apply Face Curves to it. It makes a series of 3D sketches with the isoparms as splines in the 3D sketch. Kludgy way to do it, but if you really need it, there it is.
Or you could use Rhino, which does it all the time.
We actually use alias "same as Rhino" I want the iso parms as I am providing some surface training and want the users to be able to truly see their form and to properly determine if it is doing what they want. "Build then Evaluate" methode. And I find Iso parms are the first and quickest way to see if your surface is doing what you "expected"
I will use your work around as this will demonstrate what I want.
Thanks, I appreciate that.
Best of luck to you!

You can buy it on Amazon, or I suspect you can still buy it from Matt. You should be able to reach him through the following < http://www.dezignstuff.com/?page_id=15 >. It's probably a little cheaper from Amazon, but Matt makes more money if you buy it from him.
You'll want the Surfacing Bible. He also has a general SolidWorks Bible and a SolidWorks Administration Bible. All are well worth the money you will pay for them.
