Tech Tip Tuesday: Alternate Position Views for Parts

Find a GroupWelcome to another Tech Tip Tuesday where I like to share tips and tricks I’ve learned in my 15 years using SOLIDWORKS.  This week I wanted to show how to do something that was asked recently while attending a User Group Meeting.  The question was, how to create Alternate Position Views of Parts in a Drawing.  SOLIDWORKS currently allows users to show their Assemblies in different states in a Drawing using this powerful tool.  However, this is unfortunately not available for Part Drawings today.  There is however a work-around for this that I shared with the audience, and have provided in a video below.

This is just one example of the dozens of tips and tricks that you can pick up by attending a local SOLIDWORKS User Group meeting.  To find a SOLIDWORKS User Group in your area, be sure to check out the SWUGN page by clicking the the banner above.
