The shape or form of a surface or solid is defined by reference geometry. Planes, axes, coordinate systems, and points are all examples of reference geometry. You can use reference geometry to make a variety of different features. Consider the following scenario: In lofts and sweeps, planes are employed.

A coordinate system can be defined for a part or assembly. Coordinate systems are beneficial in the following ways: With the Measure and Mass Properties tools, you can calculate how much something weighs. SOLIDWORKS documents can be exported to IGES, STL, ACIS, STEP, Parasolid, VRML, and VDA. When it comes to assembly mates, there are a few things to keep in mind.

Features include all sorts of reference geometry and can be found under the Features tab. To start making a plane, go to the CommandManager's Features tab, pick Reference Geometry, and then Plane.

  • Select Coordinate System from the Reference Geometry toolbar or Insert > Reference Geometry > Coordinate System from the Insert menu.
  • To create the coordinate system, use the Coordinate System PropertyManager. You can change your choices as follows:
  • Make a click.

  • Select Model > Coordinate System from the drop-down menu. The dialogue box for the Coordinate System appears.
  • In the graphics box, select up to three placement references.
  • To establish a new coordinate system with the default orientation, click OK; to orient the new coordinate system, click the Orientation tab.
