This forum is dedicated to those of you using SolidWorks, the 3D mechanical design software.
I'm using SolidWorks 2012 and when I'm trying to sketch the basic spline, the Spline Points feature is innactive. So, basically, I cannot draw it in the way I need to.
Screenshot is attached....
I insert a countersunk bolt from the toolbox.
I made holes with 45 degree chamfer, but when i try to impose a coincident constraint between the chamfer and the conic face of the bolt-no.
I made a new part in an assembly.
I moved the pointer to the graphics area and pressed somewhere.
I made the part, now i cannot move it since it's fixed. there is the (f) writing in front of it's...
In an assembly i made a sketch with points.
Now i activated the hole wizard, but cannot select these points.
I can't dimension, during hole creation and even later, the hole to anything.
Part's rear has hundreds of holes in dozens of clusters, each with different dimensions.
I'd like to place four of the same BACK VIEW onto four different SHEETS, and focus on different sets of...
i solved the problem, please, someone tell me how to delete the thread!
I want to move a fully constrained part in an assembly.
I have imposed mates.
I want to work on it, how to move it and then to place it, automatically, back to it's place?
In Inventor the move...
I have a long spline, and i try to make a circle coincident at one point, at the beginning, but when i add a tangent relation it selects an other point.
I projected a spiral onto a plane, and there are many redundant segments.
I drew another line, with coincident constraints to a part of this huge spline and tried to trim the rest of the spline, but...
Sketch 12 is fully defined. i cannot add coincident endpoints.
I try to cut extrude it, but it says the contour isn't closed.
i don't know how to erase this thread.
Can someone show me how?
For example i want to extrude a hole from the surface of a cylinder towards the center, but i want that the walls will be in the radial direction.
So far i extruded from a flat plane.
I made the spiral and barrel, now i hide the spiral but i don't see the cuts in the cylinder.
I want to make a round thread with the spiral, i wanted it to remove material from the inner cylinder,...
How can i draw lines on a cylinder, without projecting?
When i start a 3D sketch, it sketches on XY, or YZ or XZ planes only.
When i select the 3D Sketch and point at the cylinder, nothing happens,...
I want to import a sketch from another part file, but it seems i can import only features or surfaces
I made one turn of a spring, but when i watch from above, the end surface isn't vertical, like the beginning surface.
I tried to add Along Z axis constraint to the end handle, but didn't succeed....
I save an assembly in JPG format and then insert it into Word, but it is inserted in a medium size, and when i increase the size of the picture i loose resolution.
How can increase the size in...
The circle isn't fully constrained.
I want to add a coincident constraint in the center of the
circle, with the end of the line, but when i select the
point there isn't such a constraint available.
I have a macro that copy all sheet from a drawing and open new template and paste the sheets on. Then close old drawing and saveas the new one with the same name of the original one to overwrite...
There seems to be alot of people asking about spring recently. This link doesn't provide a method to make them, only guide you in a better direction on what methods work best.
Does any one know where to get "free" human erogonomic models for SolidWORKS. Perhaps and Man and a Woman. Similar types would be the Body Work - Human Engineering Model and the Pro/Engineer -...
Always been a problem for me. If you want the Import box to say mm instead of Inches in Solidworks.
This is really strange:
In Autocad type 'DDIM' (for the 'Dimension Style Manager') in the...
Hi. I just wanna ask how to create this type of spring. The spring needs to be in very close revolutions and with some bend on the tip of it(i know the bend can be done thru "Fillet").Now the problem...
Simple, but stumping.
I've created a generic "control knob" PART.
I want to designate the hole where the knob fits onto the control shaft as a "concentric auto mate" (so, when the knob is...
Was wondering about this months ago, just stumbled across a video on it --
Use this control to limit the display of threads to those newer than the specified time frame.
Allows you to choose the data by which the thread list will be sorted.
Order threads in...
Note: when sorting by date, 'descending order' will show the newest results first.
