Click to view contentHi - I am trying to make a bowl with this pattern/texture of divots on it:   Basically imagine that on a concave surface with each black/white triangle pair pushed out of the surface. Sort of like this:   I've been beating my head against the wall for two days now trying everything I can think of..    I made the sketch of the pattern on a… (Show more)

All,    I am attempting to model a helical cam path along a cylinder. That in of itself wasn't terribly difficult. However, I want the end of this cam path to transition to linear. The tricky part is the transition. I've tried extracting the helix in a 3D sketch and add a linear portion with a spline to transition between the two. However, I… (Show more)

I'm trying to model a race car suspension. Part of that involves suspension struts. The struts are a hex tube with heim (spherical) joints at each end. I've mated 5 of these struts, at each end (10 mate locations, 20 mates) so far, but the last one refuses to mate with the error "Please select from two different subassemblies...". The heim and the… (Show more)

I've attached an image of a symbol that appears next to a sketch in the feature tree of my part. This sketch references a master file. I am unable to edit the sketch. Does anyone have any information on this symbol? Thank you

I am trying to open a Unigraphics part in Solid works and keep the dimensions and sketch relationships that originally defined the part. I can open it and see and edit the sketch but they are all undefined.   The purpose of the model was to give us the existing tolerancing information as they build from the part not a drawing.

Hi all,   I'm trying to sketch a line starting from a certain point on the perimeter of a circle. However, when I click to do so, the first endpoint of the line jumps to a seemingly random point in the circle. I've tried several times, but this is happening pretty consistently.   Any help is appreciated!   Thanks in advance,

I do not have a VAR, because I am part of a team that has been granted Solidworks Connected 2021 and 3dExperience access from Dassault directly for a PR project. So getting help for this is frustratingly difficult.   I am the only known member of the team that has this problem, FYI.   About 7 times out of 10, Solidworks refuses to open because… (Show more)

Hello!   Can you please help me to constraint a component to stay where I need?   The situation is: I have two square pillars of different heights; I would like to put an angled beam that touches the edges of both pillars. I tried mating face and edges, but I had no luck.   After making them touch, I need to position it correctly, maybe… (Show more)
