Hello i have two problems.
The first one is simple. I want to know if there is a way to center a circle in the origin of the axis without manually correct the parameters x and y.
The second question instead is how to draw a cone.
How about this.
Click on you sketched circle and while holding down the Ctrl tab click on origin point then add a coincident relation.
Attached is an example of a cone (700 dia, 500 dia x 1000mm long) that can be flattened out, there are lots of other ways to get the same result.
Note that this cone is done in SolidWorks 2012

i've seen your example but i'ven't understood well the way you construct it.
In my case i have to draw a cone with 17.60mm dia, 17.40mm dia, 20mm long. i must have also a circle in the middle of the cone with 15.20mm dia.
If you roll the marker up the feature tree you can see the steps I have taken.
I started with an open sketch with 700 & 500 radius dimensions and height (sorry I put dia in original post).
Exit sketch and go features revolve.
It might come up with an error message about having an open sketch, i just clicked ok to close etc.
I set the angle to 359.5 (so it has a small gap).
Then fill in parameters for cone (thickness etc).
I then went to the sheet metal tab and clicked insert bends, i then chose one of the edges of the small gap on the inside of the cone.
Then went flat pattern and had my K factor set to 0.5 (you will need to alter these parameters to suit your needs).
Hope this helps
i've seen how you construct the cone but the problem is that i have to build a cone with these dia 17.60mm and 17.40mm and inside this i must have a cilinder with 15.20mm dia.
Something like this?
No sizes given for thickness etc
in this case between the two "circle" there is empty instead i need it fully filled.
Attached is a video to create a cone, this shows the steps from after you have drawn your initial sketch.
I am sure there will be people here that will show you a much easier way to do this.
i've understood how you bild your cone but this is not what i need or at least i don't know how to modify yours since in your cone is fully empty instead i need to create a cone plus a cilinder as shown in the figure (also if it show a rectangle, consider only the dimension and the diameters):
i hope that you can help me
Ok now it is correct!how did you draw it?
Glad it's now correct.
Created a plane (1) off - set from top plane by 20mm.
On top plane created a sketch (1) with a 17.6 dia circle
On plane 1 created a sketch (2) with a 17.4 dia circle.
In features used the loft function and selected sketch 1 & sketch 2
Then on top plane created a sketch (3) a 15.2 dia circle.
In features used this sketch (3) and the cut extrude function to cut through cone.
Also don't forget to move marker up to see how each feature is done. Expand the feature to see the sketches
I guess you have just started to use SolidWorks.
For the future if you could add a sketch or picture of what you require it will greatly help.
