Do not add any other dimensions, if your sketch is not Fully Defined , as this means that you are missing sketch relationships. First, find the missing relationships and add them. 33 Remember, when a sketch is fully defined, all of the object lines will be black and SolidWorks will display “Fully Defined” in the status bar at the bottom of the screen. The endpoints of the center lines can be blue, and the sketch still be fully defined, because the length of a center line is irrelevant. An under defined sketch will also show a minus sign beside its name in the feature tree.

Added to this is the ability to find the physical properties of the model or to animate the model showing its complete functioning within the assembly model. Photorealistic images using PhotoWorks can also be produced from the parts or assemblies to help visualize the finished product. Loads can be placed onto the model to determine its resistance to bending or to analyze the weak spots on the part. Individual parts may also be exported to other programs that may aid in applications such as machining or air flow analysis.
