Use of ALT key in Solidworks
Wednesday, September 5, 2007
Use ALT keys to improve the speed and productivity of your design

  • In a Drawing you can move a view by using the ALT key. By selecting anywhere in the view as opposed to a model edge or the view edge.
  • In a Drawing, holding the ALT key you can move any table from anywhere on the table as opposed to only the move control cell in the upper left hand corner.
  • In an Assembly, the ALT key can be used to “Drag & Drop” mates, using Smart Mate technology. These mates include Coincident (Planar Face to Planar Face), Concentric (Cylindrical Face to Cylindrical Face), and “Peg in Hole” Coincident & Concentric combined (Circular Edge to Circular Edge).
  • Alt + Left or Right Arrow keys rotate the model in a Clockwise / Counter Clockwise fashion.
  • When re-ordering the sequence of Parts in an Assembly, the Alt key prevents the dropping of a Part into an Assembly
  • When several Dimensions are grouped on a Drawing, if you want to adjust one dimension in the group, you can hold the ALT key and drag it to the new location, while maintaining the group.
