Adding a dimension sensor in SolidWorks

09 Apr

SolidWorks provides “sensors” to allow uses to keep an eye on specific quantities of interest. Theses include:

  • Simulation Data
  • Mass Properties
  • Dimension
  • Interference Detection
  • Proximity

In the help file, I failed to find how to attach a dimension to a sensor, and here is the trick:

1. Right click on “Annotations” icon in FeatureManager and tick the choice “Show Feature Dimensions”.


2. In the Sensor edit property property page, now you can make the sensor monitor the dimension now!

    It was very useful this topic to me. I had a problem to find out how to use Dimension with sensors, but thanks to you, I solved it. Thank you very much.
