I'm trying to bring a piece of tubing come of a rounded surface. Not sure how to make the connection mate correctly.
Thank you to all who respond
paint a picture for us please, or to save sometime maybe a screengrab?
I would suppose you are just doing a partial wrap around the cylinder, if that is the case use the Sweep Feature, but like Bjorn Hulman mentioned a sketch or picture would help to see your issue...
I generally use Axis and Planes.
Attach your assembly here and end all doubt.
Since I 'm new to SW, I do not know how to have an SW file open, be on the forum at the same time, then make a screen grab and transfer it to the forum post. Or how to mark it ?
I am not interested in a screen grab myself - I want the actual SolidWorks assembly files.
That is as simple as right clicking on the project folder and selecting Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder and then attaching the resulting *.zip file via the Use advanced editor in upper right corner when you Reply.
But if you really like capturing pretty pictures you can use the Windows Snipping tool - it is already installed on our computer.
Since I'm new to SW Forum and new to SW in general, I'm having trouble installing Screen Captures and Zip files into these help windows.
So again, I'm trying to perfectly mate a piece of tubing to a rounded surface. Not sure how to make the connection mate correctly.
The second frame is where the tubing needs to mate, the last frame is a failed attempt to reference my mistake.
I will then have to shell the tubing but not the surface it's joined to. This is a weldment and I'm using Win 10 pro if it's of importants ?
Thank you to all again, Frank
..are you wanting to create a weld bead?... (image/file attached)
