How to adjust SOLIDWORKS Spin Box Increment Values Locally & Globally

Javelin Tech Tips

Upon editing a dimension value in SOLIDWORKS, you can use the SOLIDWORKS spin box instead of typing in numbers. The middle mouse wheel or clicking on the little up/down arrows on the right side of the dimension box could be used to fine-tune a dimension by 1mm or smaller increments or decrements. This capability is also useful for concept designs where you don’t know an exact value for increment and only need to change dimensions to see the effects.
