Add stamp images to documents.

Stamps become permanent when you save the document.

  • You can add images (*.png, *.tif, *.gif, *.jpeg, *.bmp) to the specified stamp folder.

  • SolidWorks eDrawings supports formats such as *.png, *.tif, or *.gif that support transparency.

  • In models, stamps remain fixed in relation to the window when the models are scaled, rotated, or dragged.

  • In drawings, stamps behave like rubber stamps applied to paper drawings.

You can:

  • Use stamps provided on the Stamps tab .

  • Specify the stamp folder in Tools, Options.

  • Add images to the specified stamp folder. Any images in the folder appear on the tab.

  • Resize by dragging the handles .

  • Move by dragging anywhere in the stamp except the handles.
