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.
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?
