This Generation Task lets you insert Dimension text. Each property will set the text to the alignment in the name of the property. For example the Dimension Left Text will put the text on the left side of the dimension.
You can choose whether to use only one Dimension Text alignment property or multiple but the Task must have a Dimension Name to locate which dimension to insert the text next to.
|Dimension Bottom Text||The new text below the dimension.|
|Dimension Left Text||The new text to the left of the dimension.|
|Dimension Name||The name of the dimension that will be driven (for instance D1@Boss-Extrude1).|
|Dimension Right Text||The new text to the right of the dimension.|
|Dimension Text Below Leader||The new text below the Leader Line.|
|Dimension Top Text||The new text above the dimension.|
|(Name)||The unique name for this Task.|
To be able to set text for a Dimension below the Leader Line you must make sure you have the Document Option in SOLIDWORKS set to Solid Leader Align Text. To do this Navigate to Document Properties in Options and expand Dimensions. On each of these dimension types make sure it is set to Solid Leader Align Text.
When this task is added the properties are static by default. See How To: Change A Static Property To A Dynamic Property to enable rules to be built on these properties.
|Property Name||Example Rule||Example Result||Meaning|
|Dimension Bottom Text||"Bottom"||Bottom||This will put the text below the dimension.|
|Dimension Left Text||"Left"||Left||This will put the text to the left of the dimension.|
|Dimension Right Text||"Right"||Right||This will put the text to the right of the dimension.|
|Dimension Text Below Leader||"Below Leader"||Below Leader||This will put the text below the Leader Line.|
|Dimension Top Text||"Top"||Top||This will put the text above the dimension.|
