Rob from SolidWorks Product Definition here.
There is a system option for sketches in SolidWorks called “Enable on screen numeric input on entity creation”. When enabled, this option displays dimensions as you sketch different entities, and allows you to enter a value for that dimension as you sketch. This allows you to create your line or circle at the exact size you need it to be, without having to go back and enter a dimension value later.
My questions to everyone are:
- How many of you are using this option?
- Do you find it useful?
