I'm trying to cut out these openings but it's not working. I keep getting an error message I'm not understanding.
Can I get some advise please,
I suspect this is one of those times where the SW is using the wrong text for the error (they are getting fewer, but there are a LOT of possible errors ).
i would expect SW to be unhappy with the zero thickness that would be created by the center of your cut.
Ok makes sense but if I add this solid point now then aren't I suppose to add a pierce relation to each line entities ?
If so, it's not giving me that relation.
not sure what you are looking for with pierce - that is never applicable to entities in the same 2D sketch.
do you mean coincident?
Look at the Feature Manager and you'll see that you've got the direction box selected. I suspect that if you select the sketch, it will interpret your selection as a direction to extrude. Try selecting the Selected Contours box first.
If you can attach the file I can try.
Will this work ?
Play back problem.
It is a zip file with a Solidworks part inside of it. Download the zip and unzip it.
Then open it in your Solidworks.
It's located in the download folder in the browser. But not the file cabinet. There is not option to move it anywhere else.
I have NO IDEA what you mean by file cabinet.
Just RMB on it, select save as... Go to a folder and save it.
Honestly, since it is a zip file with a Solidworks file inside it, you can drag and drop the zip file right into Solidworks and it will unzip it, save and open it all in 1 step.
Ok I got it to open. Not sure how. But if you've been following me for a while, I've always had problems with zip files.
Anyway, heres a shot of what I got so far. Maha said there where 2 different examples in here. I only see one.
And I'm not sure how to read what he's done.
Year ago, "THIS PC" use to be called "File Cabinet". Now the File cabinet has morph into the "This PC / Quick Access"
"YEARS ago" Typo
Ok Maha, I'm only interested in the second sketch. Does your return file explain the second sketch some where in some way that I'm not seeing ?
2nd Sketch file.
I have no idea what you did or how you did it, But thanks anyway
I did a new reliable sketch with your dimension. This was the reason I converted you sketch into construction line.
