Composite curve swept boss base not working: I am creating a torsion spring (below) and have already successfully done so several times in the past but I needed to adjust the end lead sketches and now the centra... I am building a bracket that will attach to the end of a PVC pipe. I want some ears to stick out across a slit for tightening the bracket with a bolt between the ears. I created a plane tangent to the cylindrical surf... Hello, as you guys can see on the screenshot, no matter whether I choose one or the other section/sketch as the first input, whenever I validate the function swept, it leads to the end section/ellipse not aligned to t... Hi all, I would be grateful if anybody could help, http://grabcad.com/library/quarter-turn-fastener In the link above there is a quater turn fastner with a quater turn cut out. Does anybody kno... Three other CAD packages solve this with zero problems... solidworks, not so much. Customer wants solidworks so here i am asking for help on this. normal fillet won't work, face fillet acts like it will th... Hi, I don't understand why the surface thicken feature or surface offset NEVER works unless you are doing something real basic with no small radius corners.. This feature should automatically fix those s... what is it? what does it mean? Given either a part property or global variable in `equations' representing the porosity of a material, is it possible to create a parameterized expression for material density which is some function of porosity? ... I'm using the belt/chain feature for a conveyor belt, and have created a belt model around the derived sketch that it creates from the auto-generated sketch belt profile. Now, I've changed the size of the roll... I have had this issue in several part files which I am trying to add standard threads in (1/4-28 for instance). I typically use cut-threads on my assembly instead of extruded threads because I cut into a lead-in chamf... I have the following problem, hope someone can help, failing that perhaps it will prevent another user falling into the same trap. I have a multi-body part. It is a collection of plates which will be welded to... I'm looking for a way to do the equivalent of an "up to next" extrusion, but starting from a point rather than a plane. For some reason I can't insert my image of what I want to do so I'm attaching it instead.... I am trying to model bent metal. I can use fillet on one portion but not the other 3. It flips the fillet in the wrong direction. I've tried fully defining the sketch and flipping where the extrude sketch is drawn to ... So I'm working on making a playground slide out of sheet metal, but when I try to add bends to convert the part into sheet metal so I can flatten it I cannot get it to flatten for the life of me. It keeps telling me t... (first time posting, I just copied my heading and put it here) Hello, I have a part template with global variables to make similar parts with different dimensions for the slots (or fingers). A problem I haven'... Is it possible to select BSP BSW and BSF threads in the hole
wizard and if not can they be added to the hole wizard in the same
way you can add weldment profiles in the weldment menu? I was using the Dual screen feature. I had an assembly on one screen and the part I was changing on the other screen. I changed a sketch measurement. I exited out and the part in the assembly disappe... Hi all, I came across an issue this afternoon, I tried using a legacy hole counterbore and the depth does not quite equal what I input. Diameter is correct, counterbore diameter is correct, counterbore depth ... I've even deleted and re-added the decal and it still shows the old one. The preview of the decal shows correctly. How can I get this thing to update? I have the option to "Store Appearance, Decal ... I am trying to replicate the following drawing: The problem I am encountering in solidworks is creating the radius around each of the four corners of the main body of the part. I tried using a variable fille...
