DriveWorks Pro 16: Insert Image on Drawing [send feedback...]

Insert Image on Drawing - SOLIDWORKS PowerPack

The Insert Image on Drawing Generation Task allows you to place and position an image onto a Drawing.

The positioning of the image is done by specifying the position and size using the units of the model. If the Model units were MMGS then the positioning would be done using mm.

When specifying the distance and position it is important to remember that the those values will be affected by the sheet scale of the drawing. If you have a sheet scale of 2:1 and you specified the left distance to be 200 it would be scaled to 100.
