Weekly Productivity Enhancer: Jog Line Tool

Expanding Process Costing and API Support

We here at SolidBox value productivity above all in our applications and of course, our hardware. Each week, we’ll be giving you a tip to help you enhance your productivity with SolidWorks specifically. Sorry, we can’t help you with the hours you spend on Youtube each week watching cat videos, but hopefully you can learn something to make your SolidWorks experience easier.

SolidWorks gives us the flexibility to create any geometric shape you can imagine in a sketch, but most often, we deal with basic shapes constrained by perpendicular and parallel relations. There’s a number of different ways to create these shapes ranging from jotting individual lines to utilizing commands that create many sketch entities at once. Once such tool is the Jog Line Tool. The Jog Line Tool allows you to take a straight line and break it up with a jog that is already constrained by perpendicular and parallel relations. Watch this short video to learn how to use this neat little tool.
