Not sure how to project a sketch from one plane to another. Trying to do a model railroad layout in SolidWorks 2015 and use a swept boss/base for track support between grades. Help please.
Can you attach or show a screenshot of your model/drawing please?
Is this somehow how you would want it Ken? Just a general idea. Still unsure until you post your screenshot of your part. Thanks. =D
This is what I'm attempting:
the actual drawing plane needs to tilt in two directions. The start point is at elevation 0 and the end is at elevation 3. The X,Y for the given points is easy, it's the Z that is giving me trouble. the above was drawn as a DWG file and imported into SW2015. Hard to put into words.
Please bear with me Ken.
I'm not sure if I got what you meant above but I gave it a try based on how I understood it. Hehe. The plane at the bottom is tilted 1.6 degrees. Perhaps our other seasoned brothers and sisters can contribute and help too.
Create a new plane at your angle, create a sketch on the new plane, and convert entities from the original top plane sketch.
To create the plane you can develop some construction geometry in a 3D sketch. To create enough reference geometry, draw the construction line shown near the 3.00 dimension and set it perpendicular to both the 3" vertical line and the hypotenuse of the triangle. When you create your plane select the hypotenuse and either the end point of or the whole perpendicular line.
For what it's worth, the numbers given in your DWG don't seem to jive - at least as I understand it.
Any chance you could send me the model? It looks like what is in my mind.
Can one create X,Y,Z "points" in SW? How? Then maybe "connect the dots"?

Finally figured out how to do what I wanted to. combined several sweeps/lofts to archive it.
