Modifying Ordinate Dimensions

By farzad on 12 May 14:20 3 answers 2 comments

Hi All

If the ordinate dimensionings in solidworks are not made in the sketch , but only in the drawing,

and then I understand that I have mistaken about the zero point, is there any solution to change or invert the starting point, without doing everything again ?

    You can drag the '0' ordinate dimension in the drawing to a new feature and all the other dimensions will update. Select the '0' dimension and grab the little box at the tip of the dimension line to drag it to a new location.

    The zero of a horizontal ordinate dimensions needs to reattach to another item like a point, vertical line, or tangent edge.
    If you could post a picture of what you have, and describe how you'd like to change it, I think it will be easier to determine if it is possible.
