Standardization – A word which many organizations strive hard to achieve. Engineering department were standards are followed mandatorily in design and drafting.
Engineers use SolidWorks to easily create 3D model and Manufacturing Drawings but they face challenge to streamline their design according to industry standards.
SolidWorks Design Checker, a productivity tool which can ease and potentially automate the design standard checking process. This process involves by simply creating a template for CAD Standard (Build Checks) or using an existing drawing to check against drawings.
In SOLIDWORKS, you can add .swstd extension to your standards file in the ‘check active document’ allowing you to run a check on opened file. The Design Checker lists in the task pane highlighting all the content that has failed the check against your standard and allows you to address them.
Design Checker checks document standards for
