Solidworks - draft analysis

Using the settings in draft analysis, you can verify draft angles on model faces or you can examine angle changes within a face.
To apply a draft analysis to verify draft angles:
Open the model, then click Draft Analysis on the Mold Tools toolbar, or click Tools, Draft Analysis.
Under Analysis Parameters, do the following:
Select a planar face, a linear edge or an axis to indicate the Direction of Pull.
Note the draw direction. To change the draw direction, click Reverse Direction . You can also use the handle in the graphics area to reverse direction.

Enter a Draft Angle .
Click Face classification to conduct a face-based draft analysis.
If necessary, click the Find steep faces check box. Use steep faces when the model includes curved faces. Selecting Find steep faces displays faces that have a portion of the face with less angle than the specified draft angle to the direction of pull.
When you select Find steep faces, two additional categories, are displayed:
Positive steep faces
Negative steep faces

These categories function in the same manner as other face categories (positive draft, negative draft, and so on), but only apply to steep faces.
Click Calculate.(solidwork help)
