Hi I have this error that is stumping me from completing an assignment.. When it comes to solidworks I'm not to much of a newbie but when it comes to creating molds for plastic injection parts I am.. I have created a plastic part ( The Barrel of a plastic BIC Rollerball pen) and am required to create the mold for it. I have created a Scale, and a Draft(But i must admit there are some yellow parts still on the model, which When trying to fix the problem I quickly redid a prototype of the part adding drafts where needed but still recieved the same error so i continued with my older part because it was more specific). I create parting lines, create parting surfaces, then create planar surfaces and knited them all together.. but then when I use the Tooling Split command and select my core, cavity and parting surface, i click the green tick and i get the error "Cannot Knit sheets together" and its driving me mad because I have no idea what ive done wrong and why it is not working.
Al1090 posted a topic in SolidWorksI am trying to model a Ram's head, and cannot get the horns to work. I've used many combinations of the sketch tools and features; helixes, lofts, 3d sketches, new planes, extrusions...the list goes on. I am attempting to make either a square or a round extrusion, just twisted, following a helix. I guess you could call them twisted pyramids or cones, respectively. I don't mind which one, I say feel free to go with the one that is easier to explain. Loft worked with a 3d sketch endpoint, and made a cone, once I put the helix in as the path to follow it stopped working. Helix works but cannot taper. It just looks like a spring. Can anyone please help me? Here are some resource pics. I would be thankful for either of those types of horns: http://user9530.websitewizard.com/images/Tables/TB0108_gold_rams_head_table_copy.jpg http://img0002.popscreencdn.com/127248471_dodge-truck-ramcharger-ram-rams-head-mopar-hood-ornament.jpg Thank you.
hello everyone, i have a project that needs to get the volume of the certain of the hull of a boat. from 2D i use align command to get the 3D form of the hull. then i to get the shape/surface i use loft command. i am doing it right? but from the moment i tried to get the volume using massprop command it says, "no solid or region selected" see attached picture. and also as i tried to use the m2s.lsp it says "not a polygon mesh". I really do appreciate guys if you all can help me with this matter, i've been doing this for 1 days but still im going no were. also, the non-coplanar thing i always encounter. can you teach me step by step to get the volume of the hull? i really do appreciate it..... thanks guys in advance.....
I thought this thread could be possibly be a place to post links to manufacturer's who make Solidworks Files available for download.. I had and extensive list that I had compiled but I lost all my bookmarks when my HD crashed... Here are 4 that I can remember off the top of my head... http://www.mcmaster.com/ http://www.reidsupply.com/ http://www.pemnet.com/ http://www.southco.com/ Could others please post similar? At the moment I'm looking for Electrical connectors (DB-25/DB-9) etc... The sites where users post "their" files tend to not be very accurate in their design. Looking for vendor supplied items. I didn't see any posts along these lines when I searched...
