    Alternative to section or side view for getting views to Autocad?

    Bob Quinn

      I have found the tools in SoldWorks to be quite nice and easy to use to quickly create side view and even sections through parts.

      However when creating these views the position on the drawing sheets is not nailed down to any consistant origin point.

      I am using the drawings and saving them out as Autocad drawings and importing the geometry into Autocad.

      So each time I do this the side view appear to come into a different location in the drawing and we spend some time getting them back lined up properly.

       

      So my question is: Are there any other options to create the 2d side views or section cuts that  will place the 2d geometry either in line with the 3d data, or place it on the drawing sheets in some consistent location?

       

      Thanks!
