I have attached a screen shot of my solidwork sketch and one of a cad drawing. I cannot figure out why I can join two entities with a .78 R in cad but not in solidworks?
It looks like you're trying to define the radius by clicking on the ends. Instead just click on the arc itself with the Smart Dimension tool active to set the value.
SolidWorks is CAD.
What version of SolidWorks are you using?
Can you Attach your *.sldprt file here?
Have you gone through the Tutorials?
That is a strange method of dimensioning (intersection point of line and arc), how will you measure that in the real world?
Is your AutoCAD drawing incorrect (arc not tangent) or is your SWx sketch incorrect (arc is tangent)?
How many superfluous dimensions do you have?
How many missing dimensions do you have?
You have some issues:
Do these things before you even add the radius. It is good practice to get all your lines defined before adding radii. I have found it to be good practice to get all your lines defined before adding radii.
I will get back to all of you. I just had another project come up. Thanks
OK so I got my geometry correct, but the revolve is not right?

My guess is you have revolved it as a 'Thin Feature', unfortunately you can not Edit and uncheck the option, you have to delete feature and make a new revolved feature.
