    Importing and/or Creating Solidworks Drafting Standards (.sldstd)

    Scott McFadden


      I think I am under the correct header on this one.

      I currently have a situation that the standards we spec out in our titleblock is ASME Y14.5-1994

      I believe the most current one is ASME Y14.5-2009.  I need to ask a few questions here.


      1.) Does the Solidworks 2010 support ASME Y14.5-2009?  Is it assumed that the latest versions Solidworks

      puts out are always complying with the most up to date specs?


      2.)  If number 1 is yes, where can I find or how does one maintain and old standard, say ASME Y14.5-1994?

      Do I use the loading method shown below?



      3.)  How does one create an .sldstd file?  Is it nothing more then a notepad format file?


      4.)  I think I am correct in saying that Soldiworks at least used to allow you to select your standard upon installation

            of the software.  The last time I installed was with 2009.  Is this still true?  If so, after the install can one change that?


      Thank you for your help in advance.
