Dimensions are added to SolidWorks on Drawing documents. Dimensions will appear in Part documents, but these are construction dimensions. These sketch dimensions are used to create a part and are used when a sketch is edited. They may be modified as the part is being created using the Smart Dimension tool. They will not appear on the finished model or in assembly drawings.
