Hi, I'm developing a mechanism and I have a doubt that you may be able to help with. what do you think? I attach some refference dimensions and a picture.
I have a plan for a model boat and two jpeg images from the plan to the same scale , one is the side view of the plan and one of the top view. I need to draw the the bulkheads which are basically an end view derived from the side and top views. I could do this by measuring the dimensions of each bulkhead in the top and side views and draw them… Show more

The next component I created was automatically named Part1, and I suppressed it during the design of another component. That subsequent component was also named… Show more
Hi all. So I downloaded this SolidWorks propeller file from the Grabcad website and I converted the assembly file into a part. So when I look at the open file, I need to somehow get its center of the prop to align to the center I created but for the life of me, I couldn't find a way to move all of the props from point A to Point B to center… Show more
