Hi guys, I'm still plodding away mucking around with learning Surfacing. Like most have done, I'm doing the Camaro tutorial and have ventured away from the written instruction a little and added some surfaces that weren't included in the tutorial. I got to a stage where I thought it's about time to knit it all together and do some filleting. The… (Show more)

Hello,   I was exploring the functionality of the belt/chain and chain pattern tools and discovered I could really use a fit spline...   Problem is I cannot locate the fit spline tool in spline tools, and when I search for it in the search window it appears but if I click it my system locks up and forces me to reboot SW.   When I have SW show… (Show more)

I have started to play around with weldments (never used them before).  I fumbled through the SolidWorks tutorial and decided to try some on my own.  I have placed several gussets on the attached weldment, but can't seem to get one to show up in one corner.  I'm getting a "please select a planar or cyclindrical face" error.  As far as I can tell,… (Show more)

Earlier today I was modifying a model and deleted a hole wizard hole.  The delete dialog box showed the usual stuff associated with a hole wizard feature plus two features called aligngroups These holes were originally created at the top-level assembly and propogated to this part.  I've since made them independent by right-clicking on each one… (Show more)

I have an assembly with one configuration as the "salvaged" assembly and now want to have a second configuration exactly the same except with different part numbers for using the new parts. How would I go about doing this easily?

Changing component configurations in an assembly. I highlight the component, down-arrow to the new configuration, select to apply to all assembly configurations.  But only the current assembly configuration is updated.

I'm designing a part that will have some adaptive-3D machined components to it. The part will end up fitting a curved piece of plexi glass with a specified radius. I'm really just looking to see if there is a better way to design the current part I have as this is the only way I know of doing what I'm trying to achieve. Any tips and suggestions… (Show more)

I have an assembly. The assembly has multiple configurations. Within each configuration a bolt is a different size. On the design table it shows the size of the bolt and not the part number. Is there a way to change this?

Hi, I'm going to model a shampoo. I tried to create some curves based on a reference image. In order to use "Loft" command for creating surfaces, I need to draw some appropriate curves that implies the total shape of my shampoo. I created curve 3 using projection method. How can I make curve 1 and 2 to intersect curve 3? Loft command gives error… (Show more)
