Click to view contentI would like to hear people's opinions on the most time effective way of modeling a relatively small steel structure. Let's say it's a mezzanine. There are two ways to do it in my mind. One focuses on fast 3D modeling and the other focuses on fast drawing production I believe.  1) Create the entire structure in a single part as a weldment.     … (Show more)

Click to view contentWhen I make a simple path mate to limit the travel of a rod along a line for an actuator the vertex of the rod travels off the end of the line. Both entities are single item sketches. Distance along and percentage along path work, but FREE does not work.

Click to view contentHi, I am trying to mate a curved neoprene grip onto a wheel assembly. They both have the same radius for the sweep/revolve path and they both have 1 inch respective part diameters. I expected Solidworks to allow a concentric mate and then do the final positioning with a distance mate... If I choose the geometry shown, I do not get any mate… (Show more)

One of my users was having this issue, and I was able to duplicate on mine computer as well. 1 out of 10 times.   Using Solidworks 2018 SP4     I’ve been having a hell of a time with this. Never had this problem before.   When inside this menu in hole wizard. I attempt to draw a line sketch for hole placement. First I click the line… (Show more)

How can I save a assembly in to a 3D-cad format, as a single part and make it as small as possible? It can be a dummy, cause if I want to change it, I change the original assembly and re-save it.   I want this for other people in the company that do not have as much PC-power as I have.

I am trying to create exploded views and an assembly drawing that follows the build process. It is a very large system with over 100 parts including all of the fasteners. What I really want is for the main model to grow with each step so it actually reflects the current assembly condition at each assembly step.   I've tried making other… (Show more)

Hi all, I am looking for a macro, sorry I have zero experience creating them. I will already be editing a part in the assembly context. I need the macro too 1. Create a sketch on the face that I already have selected 2. next selection will ask me to select an edge that I would like to convert the entities of (external part). 3. once entities… (Show more)

Click to view contentSW2019sp5   When I activate the Hole Wizard to either insert new feature or edit an existing hole feature I get this "Screw clearance not found for #1 size" error message 3 times in a row before I can use the Hole Wizard tools. I'm definitely not using any #1 holes so I can only assume I've messed up my toolbox somehow (local single PC… (Show more)

A student brought to my attention that the helix direction when using Spiral/Helix command is incorrect. If you click clockwise it produces a left handed helix. Can I have someone else verify that 2018 is doing this?   Aaron Cameron
