Info: Dangling Dimensions

This document highlights a SOLIDWORKS setting for hiding dimensions that are left dangling after features or components have been removed from a generated model.


If a drawing being driven by DriveWorks results in dangling dimensions to features or components that no longer exist there is a setting in SOLIDWORKS that will automatically hide any dimensions that are left dangling.

This is a document setting, and is required to be set in each drawing that is affected.

To do this, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the master drawing in SOLIDWORKS.
    This can be done from DriveWorks in the SOLIDWORKS task pane by opening the Group that the drawing has been captured to and selecting the Captured Models button. Next double click the drawing from the tree view to open in SOLIDWORKS.
  2. From the SOLIDWORKS Menu select Tools>Options.
  3. Select the Document Properties tab.
  4. Select Detailing from the categories on the left.
  5. Locate the Hide dangling dimensions and annotations option and check the box next to it.
