    Pictures dimensiones are different from photoshop after putting it into SW

    Kevin Neske



      I am trying to calculate the CG of my FSAE car from the CGs of the parts of the car like eg the engine, driver, etc.


      I have a sideview picture of a car with some of the main components in it.



      I dimensioned it in PS to the actual size. I took the 300 OD black circle and scaled it up to actual 300mm in PS.

      Than I integrated the upscaled jpg picture into a SolidWorks Model

      but now when I measure the circle and other dimensions, they are of by 31%.

      Which basically means the picture in SW is just 69% from the picture I made in PS.


      Could you tell me, what I need to do so that Solidworks doesn't scale down my pictures

      as soon as I put them into the sketch?

      That's the picture I made in SW, with the CG locations of the major assemblies.
