Hi,  I'm trying to create a mold from this seat.  There was another thread that had a goal similar to what I am trying to accomplish.  From that thread (referenced link below) I downloaded Paul Salvador's part and tried to replicate his steps but to no success.  The part I've included does not have the steps I did in trying to mimic Paul's part.  … (Show more)

Click to view contentIs it even possible to put a tab/slot on a mitred corner of weldment?   This great video shows it but does not explain how, or I'm just not understanding. SOLIDWORKS 2018 Tab and Slot Feature - YouTube   I just dont know what faces to select, no matter what i try I have not gotten it to work

Click to view contenthi guys, i'm having trouble deleting some cut extruded features I made in the assembly which became derived cuts. I need to delete these holes so they dont come back again but I have looked everywhere and cant seem to find where the feature is located in the feature tree! its very strange. I have attached a picture and circled the extruded cut… (Show more)

So I currently have a sketch of lines of a basic chassis and would like to change that into sections of pipes, can I use a feature to automatically create the pipe which would connect corners properly without overlaps, or how would I go about doing this manually?   Currently, when creating the pipe sections, the meeting points don't connect, but… (Show more)

Click to view contentHello all,   I am having a problem trying to mate a hook spring into holes while getting it to look dynamic for animation. I confess that I only know how to make a very basic hook spring (like you see in most tutorials) but beyond this, no clue.   Basically, the hook spring is supposed to connect the inner pole to the upper arm of the hook,… (Show more)

I have a frame modelled from weldment members. I have successfully added Tab and Slots to all parts on one half and planned to mirror them (as the tab and slot feature is quite tedious imo, great but quite time consuming).   Problem I am having is it will mirror the slot no problem, but will not mirror the tab.   I get rebuild error "Matching… (Show more)

Can you drive a part level or assembly level feature pattern, such as a hole pattern, based on a component pattern in an assembly? I am modelling a ball transfer unit and I made an assembly with the base and patterned the ball unit over it. Then I would like to make a Hole wizard feature either at part or assembly level that makes the mounting… (Show more)

Just curious if any of you have come across a trick while in interference detection , to able to rotate only about the two or more parts that show interference versus it rotating about the entire assembly. It is very frustrating , at least to me , to get a good accurate look at the interference without rotating for 5 mins.

We use a part in our assemblies that has over 150 configs in it. When the part is added to an assembly the Engineer selects the correct config for that specific assembly. The configs are basically engraved labels so it varies per assembly and we create a few thousand assemblies per year.   We just upgraded from 2015 to 2018. When we open a 2015… (Show more)
