    Adding 100 mm Locational Grid with Labels to SW Drawing Views

    John Chadwick

      Using SW2012 to create part and assembly drawings for an automotive firm (using their supplier's 3D STEP model data).  Each drawing view must incorporate a 100 mm locating grid which is used to locate the component relative to the vehicles X, Y & Z axis for each particular view (these grids are sometimes referred to as 'automotive grids').

      Other than creating these locating grids manually in each drawing view (three per drawing), does anyone have any suggestions on how to automate or at least streamline this process.  Thanks in advance.....

      Don't know why SolidWorks doesn't have this as a drafting feature??
