Hello community,


I have been practicing the CSWP practice exam found in the solidworks website, I get the first question right with the part named part1_q1. I get a mass of 14207.34 grams which is the right answer.

When I move on to the second part and change the value of the global variables through Tools>Equations I am off by about 83 grams no matter what I do or try. I get 16407.45 grams when the answer is 16490.45, this part is named part1_q2.

I have been trying to get the right mass for the second part for about an hour now and I have no idea what is wrong with the program. What am I doing wrong? Could it be something in the settings? I am using SolidWorks Student Edition 2014-2015 on windows 7.


Help is much appreciated.
