I am experiencing difficulties with centerlines, or to be more precise; automatic centerlines.
Pretty much all our products here are cylindrical in shape, so I want solidworks to add centerlines automatically.
I looked around on the internet, and found that you need to turn this on in document properties:
Options>document properties>detailing>auto insert on view creation>centerlines
I have done this, but no succes. I used the following steps:
-I tried making your basic cilinder using a sketch, and then revolving the sketch around the centerline.
-Then "make drawing from part" option to start the 2d drawing.
-Use the standard template, and use the standard A4-iso template
-make sure I have turned the option to "auto insert on view creation>centerline" on
-then I insert some views from the standard view palette (does not matter which one, tried them all)
Solidworks refuses to show any sort of centerline.
I can click the centerline-button, and it will add the line just fine, but I want the centerline to be in there automatically!
Anybody have any thoughts on how to get this to work? I am probably missing something very obvious...
I am using solidworks 2014 sp2 with the latest drivers for a solidworks graphics cards
Many thanks in advance
check to make sure your current layer is "none". You might be on a current layer that is turned off
