I want to create a spring sweep. Its spring pitch is valiable. so I use variable-pitch HelixCurve.   When I sketched a circle on normal plane to curve, sweep failed. So I create a new plane (copy TOP PLANE), and sketched a circle on it. I could create a sweep feature, but the shape of the end is different from my wish.     How can I… (Show more)

In a part with a long design tree, it's quite tedious to have to scroll up the top of the tree every time I want to start a sketch on the three basic planes or select a body from the folders. I'm hoping there is a way to keep the body folders and F/T/R planes visible no matter where the rest of the tree has scrolled to. Thoughts?

I clicked on something and my command manager disappeared from the tool bar. How do I get it back? I have tried right clicking on the toolbar, and then command manager. It shows command manager, but I can't use it, and it won't snap to the tool bar.

It seems like I randomly need to reload favorites to my Hole Wizard, especially when I create a new part. Simply picking the desired favorite from the drop down list doesn't always set the hole size and countersink correctly. Am I doing something wrong? I only have about 30 different holes that I use the Hole Wizard for and it would be nice to not… (Show more)

I'm a student looking to get a 3D mouse. All of the new 3dconnexion gear is out of my budget so I was looking at buying a used Spacepilot (not pro) on eBay. I know that it is no longer officially supported, but I was wondering if anyone had gotten the Spacepilot to work with the latest Solidworks release (I'm using 2017-2018 Education Edition).

Hello, I am considering to buy a laptop with a 4K screen (e.g. Yoga 920 14"). Have those issues related to 4K scaling been resolved?
