In order to add depth and dimension to a drawing in Solidworks, you can use the Extrude tool. This will create a 3D model from a 2D sketch. You can also use the Sweep tool to create a surface from a 2D sketch. In this tutorial, we will go over the steps you need to follow when using these tools. - In order to add depth and dimension, you must change the Extrude settings before applying it on your 2D sketch - To create a surface from your 2D sketch, apply the Sweep tool before moving on with your desired settings - There are some limitations when using these tools according to their option set - When using these tools, it is important that you maintain a proper workflow of planning and organizing

There are many ways to automatically add dimensions in Solidworks. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular methods. 1. Dimensional tool - 2. Dimensional convertor 3. G-code visibility 4. Height measurement keys

A sketch is often used as a starting point for developing a solid design. As the sketch is finalized, the designer's attention turn to the dimensions of how it will be implemented. It can be difficult to show dimensions in a soildworks sketch, especially when using lines and boxes. These simple tools are great for exploring ideas but they can also provide inaccurate measurements. Here are some helpful techniques that you can try out with your sketches, - Use different shapes to represent different dimensional concepts: circles for width, squares for length and triangles for height - Use lines or dots to represent dimensionality or non-dimensionality - Draw horizontal and vertical guide lines across the page from corner to corner - Add a reference line above or below
