I am trying to develop some relationships between dimensions on the same sketch.  I have done this countless times in the past and never had any problems.  However, as of lately when I click on tools>equations or right click on the equations folder in my design tree and then click "manage euqations" something goes wrong.  My main solidworks window… (Show more)

Good day all, I am working on an overhead crane bridge that needs to be cambered. My crane span is 91 ft from rail to rail, my camber is 2 inches, it creates a radius that is approx. 1 900 000mm. Solidworks Max radius limit is 1 000 000mm... It creates a whole bunch of problems. Any ideas on how to work this out?

Click to view contentThe view of my model is anonying me. I'd like to know why my model looks like it's in X-Ray mode. Can somebody straighten me out ? thank you, Frank

I may be late to this party, but is there a fix to center CAPITAL text in the annotation box? Text seems slightly higher than center and it is throwing off my title block spacing, annotations blocks, etc....

I was working on a sketch and wanted a construction line midway between two model edges.  In the past I'd have placed one construction line spanning between the edges, then made the other construction line coincident with its midpoint and parallel to one of the edges, but today it occurred to me to Ctrl+select the construction line and the two… (Show more)

I want to flip a sketch to the opposite side of the sketch plane.  As I recall you could easily do this with Sketch Tools-Modify by double clicking orientation arrows which caused them to flip.  Now, for some reason, I don't get those arrows.  How do I find the arrows?   Also, I seem to remember that there was a second but different technique to… (Show more)

Click to view contentHi,   I am making a assembly drawing, with a drawing view as shown in image below. I only want to show the lifting sling on top (its a 3D sketch), but do not want to show the weldment sketches or other sketches which show up below. Is there any way in SolidWorks to achieve this? Tried to search online, but cannot find any solution to this. Thanks… (Show more)

Click to view contentI'm trying to get these corners to fillet but it's not working for me. I'm doing something wrong. Maybe I should have make this model in sheet metal since it's supposed to be a sheet metal piece ? Thank you to all who throw in their .02 cents. Frank

Click to view content1. The two short entities need to be parrallel  and symetrical to the construction line. But I'm not sure how to do. I keep trying different ways but it never works. 2. I need the circle to be free to rotate, but there must be an relation not allowing it. How do I get the relations to display so I can eliminate ?   thank you,  Frank
