I just reran into a possible bug and I thought I pick the collective forum brain...   I am in an assembly creating new pipe parts between placed fittings.  Dirt simple stuff.  When I dimension my pipe circle profiles in my sketch the view/zoom always goes wonky when i type in the correct value.  The initial sketches are not hugely off from what… (Show more)

I have a part with multiple configurations (different dimensions and feature suppression). This part cannot be mirrored without the opposite-hand option.   When I mirror that part in an assembly, SolidWorks only mirror the current configuration, which is not what I want.   I want to have all the configs being mirrored in one mirror feature. This… (Show more)

I basically have a tube with slots cut in a pattern down the length, and I need to coil it in a spiral. However, when I use the flex command to take the straight tube and coil it, I get a weird render issue where the solid looks inverted somehow. Not sure why this is; any fixes or other methods to achieve this same part?

I was experimenting with "View Sketch Relations" because of a suggestion in another thread. Now either ALL the relations are visible ALL the time or they are not.   Prior to this all the relations where off until I selected a piece of the geometry and then the relations showed up. How do I get that back?   Thank you

Click to view contentI added a boss to one side of this part.       I want to mirror that boss on the opposite side.   The Partial preview shows what is expected.       But the actual mirror is wrong.      I am assuming it is due to the way the feature was created.

Click to view contentI've run into this many times and have never figured it out. Often times when you place geometry in a sketch it applies contraints automagically. Often times however if I want to get rid of these constraints they don't show up at least I can't find them to delete them.   For instance in the part below the diameter is constrained to the origin.… (Show more)

Click to view contentI frequently design parts and assemblies that use a Linear Pattern or Circular Pattern to provide a series of holes, mounting pegs, etc. to allow for mounting at discrete locations (e.g., a series of holes along a table leg to allow for multiple discrete table heights). I'd like to establish a mate such that (say) a fastener can be within one of… (Show more)

My assembly contains a pair of sheet metal parts:  head-wing-hinge's sketch is defined in part by converting entities from shell-wing-hinge's sketch.   When I am editing hwh's sketch, the points appear to line up.  When I exit the sketch, the points no longer line up.  Further, I can drag hwh in the assembly until the converted points do not even… (Show more)

In the drop-down menu i see only 3 sizes!  There  should be much more! Otherwise i have to sketch the profile and extrude it!! . So how can bring all other sizes of structural members to drop-down list?

Click to view contentI am pretty sure that it related to appearance. Somehow I accidentally click on remove all appearance and since that the display style is not functioning. I tried google and all and I couldn't found the answer to my problem. I hope I can find the answer in this discussion.   Herewith I attached my model in SW and Parasolid for easy access.   The… (Show more)
