I did not design this model! I imported it from GrabCAD. How do I fix these surfaces? Atta... I have created this model from surface and it needs to follow a specific curvature path but what I am having trouble with is that I need to add a 3" radius to that step shown. The furthest solidworks will let me add i... I'd like to wrap or fit text to a complex surface. Does anyone know how this can be done? The wrap feature works on prismatic surfaces (cylindars, cones, etc) it doesn't work on complex surfaces. ... Hi all! When creating a boundary surface, my curvature combs extend beyond the surface I'm creating and show up as blue and red lines on adjacent faces. This makes viewing the surface uncomfortable, as I only ... I'm trying to improve my Solidworks skills, so I thought it would a good idea to fully model my drone, but I'm stuck on how to model the top case. I don't know how to do this kind of weird insertion... As of right now, I have the vast majority of the sketch done, but I am unable to create lofted surfaces for the bottom of the hull. The file is attached. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am not able to apply a color change to any parts. Changing the material of the part does nothing to the appearance. Changing the color does nothing. It is just always the default grey color, same gloss, etc. Do I ne... I cannot close the surface using boundary surface or other commands. If i close using some indirect techniques i always get some open surfaces. I don't want open surfaces as i want to convert it into a solid I am looking for a feature that allows me to do the opposite
of knit surface.
I want to take a knitted surface body or a solid body, and explode
its faces into separate surfaces for me to work with. Hey i have a basket which tapered from below i need to wrap the Pattern of like woven inform me if its possible I cannot close the surface using boundary surface or other commands. If i close using some indirect techniques i always get some open surfaces. I don't want open surfaces as i want to convert it into a solid I cannot close the surface using simple commands and whenever i try to close it by extruding surface and trimming the rest it give errors and always has some open surfaces. I need to close it and fix open surfaces to... Can anyone here help me to smooth the surface showing in the image Thanks Hi all, I tried the like Measure, Section properties & Mass properties to find the surface area of the body. I couldn't able to get a one-click answer. So, later I calculated individually(or two surfaces... Good morning everyone! I have attached below a master model of a left hand thumb that I've been designing for a prosthesis as a senior design project. The composite curve has been formed using a 3D sca... I am trying in making laminates of different thickness in SolidWorks surfacing but couldn't complete. Please see the attached model and images for exact coring. I request to have the exact model to the given requireme... xNURBS SolidWorks addon V3.0 is just available ( https://www.xnurbs.com ). A short answer to "why xNURBS": As demonstrated by the animated GIFs below, xNURBS is one super powerful NURBS tool that fixes virtually ... Hi guys! Any idea why this is happening: all I'm doing is knitting the three surfaces together, it happens elsewhere on the model as well, this is just the easiest to show the deformation th... I am trying to improve my surface modelling skills by attempting to produce a CAD (near) replica of my bicycle helmet. Creating the shapes seems very difficult. I was wondering if anyone had an advi...
