    Datum Target Symbol

    Blair Legge

      Im wondering if there is a way to change the Datum Target Symbol. I've only seen a way to change the Datum Feature but i want to use a symbol that looks similar to the dowel pin symbol (See Insert>Annotation>Dowel Pin Symbol). Im new to solidworks so please dont be shy about going into details!

       

      Thanks,

      Blair

          That symbol does not sound like any symbol in the ANSI standard. If it is part of a different standard you will need to change to the other standard in the Options -> Document Properties -> Overall drafting standard and it would be available to you.

           

          *edit - if this is a custom symbol then you could make it into a block and insert it into the drawing that way.
