    How do you change the "thickness / darkness" of driven dimensions

    Alexander Ivanovic

      I am using solidworks in a bit of differnet way. I created a "part" with about twelve components but each is really a feature NOT a PART in an assembly.

      Now I created a "DRAWING" using this "PART" and am trying to dimension it with overall dimensions.

      I realize that these are driven dimensions but when I go to print this "DRAWING" they come out so faded that they disappear after a scan or two.

      My paper sheet border has the same problem as my dimensions.

      All this around the block "stuff" is leading to setting my defaults so that I can be a HAPPY user!!!!


      I have attached an example.....notice two dimensions are "ok" (45° and the 3.178" ) I created the entities ( centerlines and intersection points) that they dimension in the drawing so....they are driving.


      Can anyone help? PLEASE!!!!


      My drafring / DRAWING skills are very poor but I can model!!!!
