Is it possible to insert arrow symbol in drafting?
My requirement is to show an arrow to a parent view from which I took an auxiliary/projected view.
I am getting an arrow and view name by default but I am not happy with that.
If you need a leader with no arrow, see #22 here: Frequently Asked Forum Questions
My requirement is to use view arrow to show the direction in which a particular view is taken.
Insert a note with an arrow and just add a space in the note to maintain the arrow.
I agree that this is one of the option, but in this case we need to adjust the arrow so that the head and tale of arrow wile be horizontal/vertical.
So I think if we have an option of inserting arrow as a symbol it would be much better.
What about if you export out an arrow created in microsoft office?
I saved out an arrow as a .png file and then imported a picture into the drawing, from there you can size it and rotate it around and place to a suitable position.
Worked perfect Stephen,
I just took a screenshot of our Autocad north arrow and saved as .png like you said. Needed to fill in the border so it would show darker, but it worked very quickly to just insert, picture and it was great to have the ability to scale and rotate to an exact degree. It shows a border on the screen but doesn't print it that way.
Maybe you could use block. Just sketch desired shape and save it as a block.
that's the only option I am finding now, Thanks for that.
If anyone find out the option of inserting arrow as a symbol please advise me.
For any projected view, you can add an arrow to the parent view by highlighting the projected view and adding a check to Arrow in the PropertyManager.
There are a couple of styles to choose from. If you want the section view style (standard for ANSI), then you are done. If you want the ISO style, go to your document properties and change the arrow style there under Auxiliary.
Thank you for clarifying that Matthew,
SolidWorks functionality meets; ASME, ISO, DIN, etc., etc., standards for view arrows.
I suggest utilizing the standard, you'll never be wrong and a lot less work.
That is what standards are for, ...why reinvent the wheel?
Always my 2¢,
P/S : if u want horizontal / vertical , can use "Rotate" change the direction.
That is cool. Can you post the update GTol file or at least the codes so that there is no mistake while typing
Thank you - easy to follow instructions and works well
