I have imported a part that was sent to me from a sister company as an igs file.  Upon attempting to make a detailed drawing, I am experiencing difficulties with adding center marks as well as dimensioning to the center of arcs/circles.  When I try to create a linear dimension from an edge to the center of the circle, I get the error message, "A… (Show more)

Click to view contentI have a part model, that I am inserting into a drawing for a customer. The part has a garter spring on it. When I import the model into the drawing and section it, the spring isn't showing like I would expect it to be.   Any ideas? Screenshots are attached. Thank you in advance!   Here is a screenshot of the sectioned model, I'd expect the… (Show more)

I have a drawing from a customer that has an angle in a box as a basic dimension.It is not called out as angularity. It is a true position call out on a hole with this angle and a radius to position it.How do I interpret the angle call out as a basic dimension?Or where can I find information on how to? Thanks

I'm trying to add some geometric tolerances to a drawing. When I click the Geometric Tolerance button the property window pops up and the only things editable are the symbol and Tolerance 1. After I fill those out I can't select datums from the drop down because they are grayed out.   None of the other engineers have this issue on their machines,… (Show more)

I have always used manually created centermarks when detailing holes, radii, etc...  I was recently editing a model that had a drawing associated with it.  I made a slight position change to a threaded hole, but the dimensions on the drawing never changed.  I assumed the dimensioned hole was tied to the centermark.  I grossly moved the hole and… (Show more)

Click to view contentNew to SolidWorks 2019 I am struggling with some simplistic concepts … first of all, why is cutting an extruded pipe profile a two-step process? First the outer-circle extruded boss, followed by second inner circle extruded cut? Then, on top of that, a "Swept Boss" requires an altogether separate sketch and feature process for a "Swept Boss"… (Show more)

I'd like to change the format of the hole quantities in the hole callout. Instead of a space and a small "x" we'd like to see no space and a capital "X" after the quantity. Is there a way to change this?

Hi everyone having a bit of a discussion in the office today and want to see how other people would work around this issue.   Scenario: Our office is based in the UK and manufacturing in Turkey, we share drawings as and when changes are needed but sometimes emails get lost in translation... We have asked Turkey to send us the original… (Show more)

After creating a simple sketch in an assembly that was green and dashed, when I create a drawing the sketch appears gray and not dashed. Is there some way to configure the sketch properties to carry over from the assembly level to the drawing level so that I don't need to reset the sketch inside of the drawing? Initially I thought turning on the… (Show more)
