Areas that Rely on Sketch Relations

Areas in the SOLIDWORKS application that rely on sketch relations include using:

  • Icons to display multiple sketch relations that are inferred or added
    Click View > Hide/Show > Sketch Relations to select or clear display of the icons. If you clear View > Hide/Show > Sketch Relations , but you select a sketch entity in an open sketch, the sketch relation icons appear.
  • Inferencing as you sketch to create sketch relations
  • Sketch Snaps and Quick Snaps to add relations between sketch entities
  • Orientation option in the Insert Line PropertyManager to specify the relation of sketched lines
  • Add Relations Tool_Add_Relation_Dimensions_Relations.gif after creating sketch entities
  • Display/Delete Relations Tool_Display_Delete_Dimensions_Relations.gif to view and edit existing relations
