Been attempting to create a thread within a hex bolt. When using cut-sweep it throws this error.
File is attached. Help would be really appreciated - beginner at Solidworks
Welcome to the forum.
The problem is just what the error message said. If you're trying to remove material, then your profile sketch needs to intersect the body. Yours didn't. I edited it so that it does, and then the Swept Cut worked fine.
For more information about realistic threads see #11 here: Frequently Asked Forum Questions .
better yet, just download one from the McMaster Carr website....just sayin'
Yeah, did that and for M6 I need 7-9 turns and didn't find any nuts that deep in coarse, checked for sure.
