Dimenion arrow head with origin symbol in SolidWorks 2019

Dimenion arrow head with origin symbol in SolidWorks 2019

(OP)
Hi all,

As a new SW user (2019 version), I am trying to have a dimension (linear and angular) with one regular arrowhead and one origin head in my drawing. Is there a way to do it?




Thank you in advance.

RE: Dimenion arrow head with origin symbol in SolidWorks 2019

First dimension as usual.

Then right click on arrow head and you will get types of options.

Sa-Ro,

When I click or right-click on the arrowhead, I get this, which changes both arrowheads to what you choose, which I do not want :(





RE: Dimenion arrow head with origin symbol in SolidWorks 2019

Click on that small circle and again do it for arrow. Sometimes it may applied to both. We have to correct anyone.

I am lost.. It does not work!

RE: Dimenion arrow head with origin symbol in SolidWorks 2019

After you click on the dimension it looks like this:


If you left click on the little circle on the arrow, the arrow will switch to the outside of the extension line, and vice-versa.

If you right click on the little circle on the arrow, you get this on-screen menu:


That menu only changes the single arrowhead selected.

Click that circle.
