I have been taking it very slow and easy (boring) and trying to watch my diet, not that it's helped. I've put on a bit of weight with just laying… (Show more)

I would like to control the position of my views e.g. sections arrayed at regular spacings.  I can sketch an array in the drawing sheet but cannot associate the views to the sketch geometry.  Nor can I move views by discreet distances or to a coordinate on the sheet.   Any ideas please?

When ever I draw some drawings and reopen them again upon closing I end up with dangling dimensions. Here is the attached image for example. Please help me out to get over this problem.

I am trying to position a 0.125" hole, using the Hole Wizard, on the edge of a disc so that it runs dead center through the existing hole.  No matter what I do in a 3D sketch I can only move the position of the new hole's origin and can't creat a relationship so that it is fixed on the center of the edge face and centered with the existing hole.. … (Show more)

Hello SOLIDWORKS Power Users and welcome to the 19th SWPUC!   Many of you asked for surfacing, direct editing and imported geometry repair challenges. I am trying to combine all these challenges in one.   This is what you need to do:   1. Download the file Start.x_t. 2. Import it in SOLIDWORKS. It will look like this (zonal section applied to show… (Show more)
