Performance Hack #020 : Parts Assemblies : Working With Sketch Pictures

CONDITION: When you are using New data with old data.

1. Drop in the view that you have WITH DIMS. Aka sketch with sketch picture (make sure to create reference geometry with CONFIRMED DIMS).

2. Now create a reference point that exists in both. Here I have the before and the pool, left to right pool area dims, and –> scale sketch picture again if not already to scale.

3. Now create new sketch, again drop in reference point that gives you known dim (I create same sketch as sketch 1, and literally use coincidence reference, could do convert too) I often re-create sketch 1 geometry in sketch 2 so as to make it easier when i start to toggle the visibility of sketch 1 or 2.

4. In the new sketch, now drop in the AFTER sketch picture and scale it to match the dims.

5. Now using the AFTER / sketch 2, I can drop down other points and measure as required.

6. Now drop in other AFTER views and related back to SKETCH 2 ONLY.

7. When inserting sketch picture DO NOT alter ratio of height to width. this must be MAINTAINED!

8. Change the color of sketch so that it stands out.
