    Minimum Part Size Problem

    Dmitriy Shapiro

      I'm currently in the process of creating a MEMS chip in
      Solidworks, with the intention of conducting stress
      analysis on the entire part later on. When trying to
      dimension the part, however, I ran into issues with
      Solidworks not being able to extrude the part. One of my
      dimensions is 1.8 microinches (0.0000018 in), but when I
      try to extrude I get an error that tells me I can't have a
      gap smaller than 0.00000394 in.

       

      Is there a way to get around this? If not, is there any
      other method that I can use for MEMS design of such small
      parts?

       

      Thanks in advance!
