We've been seeing the possibilities for using VR on the back end of the product development process. But when can I start using VR at the beginning, ie modeling?

Click to view contentI need to model this twisted flat bar as shown in the pic attached. Can someone help me as to how I can do it? Have tried a few things but can't seem to get it figured. The plate I'm trying to make is marked red. The plate it is welded on is marked blue. Attaching both marked and unmarked images.       .

I am not sure what is the issue with my display but I isolated 2 components in a large assembly and when I zoom in close to the components one of them just disappear from the screen and I cannot see it although both components are really close to each other. I have to zoom out back and then that component re-appears again. Any idea how to fix this?… (Show more)

Hi, When I was using 2D software I could use it to design my projects and then detail the parts. I would like to be able to do the same with Solidworks, but I don’t know how. Can this be done, and if so, where can I buy a book or video that will show me how? I am using SW 2018 Standard. Thanks, Bob Gillis

This feature is maddening. There is no consistency with the method of mating and positioning of parts in an assembly, when I get one mate in place and add another the part flips upside down or does other goofy things, then when I change the position using the X,Y,Z tools it does away with the mates. Am I doing something wrong?

Hello I've faced two problems that maybe are connected, and that turn around one point: Lightweight settings changes after saving;   - in an assembly, after setting a subassembly in lightweight I save and reopenthe file; after reopening it, most of the parts the assembly is composed with become lightweight , even single parts that are not in… (Show more)
