Hello Solidworks community,


first of all excuse my English. I could find a answer or threat for my problem so I'm hoping to find some help here.


I bulit a longboard with the surface tool in Solidworks 2014.


Longboard - Render - gebogen - 2.JPG


I finished the wooden deck so far, but I want to build an infographic of the entire deck. Therefor I want an explosion view of the wood, griptape on the top and fiberglas on the bottom.


I want to copy the surface on the top in a new part give it a 1mm thickness to build the griptape and do the same with the bottom and the sides for the fiberglas, but I cant figure out how to do this.


So far I tried:


1. Surface Offset --> Thickness (1mm) --> Give it another appearance


The problem with this is, that I still have just one part and when I tried to render it the picture complety freaked out.



2. Save Part under a new name --> Surface Offset --> Thickness (1mm) --> delete the wooden part


Then i get the problem that all the reference are gone



Is there any way that insert just the surface information from one part to another?
