Solidworks Z to Top?

M. Anderson

Recommended Posts

I am working on a customer project with Solidworks 2015, (their laptop and all),  I have about 800 ~ 900 parts to draw up from some really old “print” prints.

I have not used SW in 10+ yrs… so a lot has changed, but it is still SW.

Question is:


How do you re-orient SW drawing space so Z is up (top plane)?

And make it permanent.. So the next time it loads it’s still correct.

It’s like Y is currently the top plane (I know it’s always been like that).

This drawing stuff sideways is NUTZ!   :crazy:  


If someone here knows please list it as simple as you can…

Like I said it’s been like 10+ years since I used SW.
