Ahhh, Look at all the pretty colors...
Here is one for you. I was given a simple task of changing one of our weldments (weldment in real life not a SW weldment) from mild to stainless steel. No problem except we have difficulty getting stainless in sheets large enough for one of the parts. Again no problem as it laps over another smaller part that I can extend while shortening the first. In doing so I need to lengthen one leg and add another bend. Now we find the first problem. First he didn't use sheetmetal but extrusions. Then he did a thin extrude and just did it blind rather than midplane. Then he needed the part to be 1/4" wider so he added a 1/8" boss extrude to both sides. Then he dimensioned all cuts from the edge which means this sliver of an extrude.
It would have been easier to start from scratch. Fortunately it was a small part. Attached for your enjoyment or here are the pictures.
Here is what I needed.
Oh, and the other part was modeled the same way.
I recently came into contact with a part which does a fantastic job of showing why lazy surface modeling is not a replacement for solid modeling. I'd describe it as a monument to mans arrogance
On first glance it's an interesting looking part, obviously this must have be- wait, wait - are those blue lines on my surface edges? No - no, it can't be -
dear god... what have they done?!
oh lord please no
Surely though, surely the sketches are defined - it must have at least one redeeming quality
Truely worthy of the Solidworks horror museum
Thankfully, i've since remodeled it as a single body
I got one how change the color of the dangling dimension in the system option so "it's easier"...
