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

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 contentI'm trying to do a Extruded cut but I'm not having any luck. I then went back to change some dimensions and discovered this obital dimension that is even off set of center of my revolve. This sketch is fully defined but this dimension is in blue. Does it belong where it is for some reason ? Could it be interfering with my extrude cut ?

I'm looking for a clear explanation of how "Convert Entiteies" works, how it should be used and when it should be used ?   I've already looked it up in the SW Help manual. I read that section at least 8 times. Still not understanding what Dassault is trying to say ? Thank you, Frank

Click to view contentHi all, Sometimes I need to import drawings from autocad. There is no Relation in these drawings. (Vertical / horizontal) I don't prefer automatic dimensions.(Fully define sketch) I'm hard to add one by one, is there a practical way to do this?   sample drawing. Thank you in advance for your help.

Click to view contentI searched the SW Help manual. And the forum. My question: Is it possible to parallel relation an entity to a plane ? If so, how is it done. I seen it done on a video using SW14 but my later version does not seem to do it. Frank

I am new to equation driven curves, and I can't figure this one out. I need to sketch a NACA 0009 airfoil with 500mm (actually this number will change, and needs to be parametric) chord length. The equation for this airfoil, quoted here, is:     Since my profile is 0009, this is what I write into the Solidworks Equation Driven Curve Yx field: 5… (Show more)

Click to view contentI sketched two horizontal line A and B and placed six point on each. Sketch a spline going through this points. Is it possible to make this points coincide with spline highest and lowest points? There is a way to do so but it is a circuitous root.

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
