Solidworks 2023 tips and tricks

Measurements

The status bar is the lower–right corner of the SOLIDWORKS interface and offers information about your model,but the most useful thing it provides is a quick way to take measurements of your model. Using the status bar, you can take measurements of your geometry such as:

Coordinates of a Vertex:

Click a Vertex to get its location in Statusbar.

Normal distance between a Vertex and a Line :

Select a Point and Line to Get “Normal Distance”.

Distance and delta X, Y, Z between two Vertices:

Select a Two Points Get “Distance and DeltaX, Y& Z”.

Length of an Edge:

SelectanEdge to get the “Length”ofthe Edge.

Normal distance and total combined length of Two Parallel Edges :

Select two Edge to get the Normal Distance and Total Length.

Angle between Two Non-Parallel Edges:

Select two Edge to get Angle between Non parallel Edge.

Total length of Multiple Edges:

Select Multiple Edge to“Total Length”

Radius and center of a Circular Arc Edge:

Select a Circular Edge to get “Centre & Radius”.

Diameter and center of a Circular Edge:

Select a Circular Edge to get(Centreand Diameter).

Normal distance between Two Parallel Planar Faces:

Select 2 Normal Faces to get (Normal Distance)

Angle between Two Non–Parallel Planar Faces:

SelectanEdge to get the “Length”of the Edge.

Radius of a Cylindrical Arc Face:

Select a Cylindrical arc to get “Radius”

Diameter of a Cylindrical Face:

Select a Cylindrical edge to get “Diameter”

Distance between axes of Two Cylindrical Axes:

Select a Two circular faces to get “Distance between Axis”
