So I've tried this every way I can think of and have had no success so I was wondering if some of the fine minds here could take a look and toss out some suggestions. The following snip is as close as I've gotten but it's still not correct. This is what I'm looking for but I need the two edges of the surface to be parallel and same distance apart… Show more
Thanks Dennis. We came up with the idea after banging my head against the wall with the folding surfaces and jagged surfaces with the sweep body feature. The CAM software wanted nothing to do with those surfaces. The math solution was done by a coworker who's awesome with excel formulas. It took a couple iterations, but it works well now.
We're still looking for a SolidWorks PDM Pro & CAD administrator at Smiths Detection https://www.smithsdetection.com/, Hemel Hempstead, UK. Applicants should ideally have a mechanical engineering background, but all applicants with a strong SolidWorks PDM Pro administration experience will be considered. Excellent chance to develop and grow a… Show more
Solidworks 2019 SP03 New computer Solidworks has been running fine on the new computer all last week. It initially opened fine and worked perfectly this morning. However, I needed to close out of SW, make some changes to a part number on our PDM (I had just had the part open, so I closed down to make sure it was not stored in cache). All I did… Show more

In Inventor it is possible to include (project) a plane, axes or point in a drawing view as a center line. See: Inventor 2016: project work features in drawing sketch - IMAGINiT Technologies Support Blog Is this possible in Solidworks?
Dear forum readers, I know the "part-in-part" modelling method has a poor reputation, but I like to know if anyone is using it, and if so for what kind of models. With permission of John Stoltzfus , I used one of his designs as an example to demonstrate the part-in-part method. Although I know John will probably prefer a different method. I… Show more
Our company has used our own models (or McMaster models) of hardware since starting with Solidworks. (early 2000's) In a push to be constantly improving and eliminate mistakes, I am considering the possibility of moving us to the toolbox for fasteners. What are some pros and cons to this? Major reasons for doing this: our fasteners are a mess… Show more
Josh I'll add that Toolbox works very well if you have design vendors who model assemblies for you. We ask our vendors to use an off-the-shelf Toolbox with configurations. When we get their models into our system, all our Toolbox items automatically replace theirs, with our part numbers. Works very well. We don't have duplicate fasteners…
Greetings I am a Masters student in possession of a SOLIDWORKS student license. I also own a 3D printer and would like to use my design skills to make some extra bucks by designing and 3D printing parts for people. The idea is to have a collection of designs (card holders, laptop stands, etc.) that I could print and sell. Also, I would like to be… Show more
So, we have this discussion about impressive SW tricks: What are your most impressive tricks of solidworks, Please spread. Let's make another thread to capture the little things your co-workers/clients/customers do with SOLIDWORKS that bring thoughts of violence. Extra points if there's nothing technically wrong (see item 2 below) with… Show more
On Friday I remodeled one of the "big" parts. 553 features, 3 solids. Feature 12 of 553 controls the shape of most of the body. The sketch had an error. It wasn't solving correctly and was misshapen because of the error. After correcting the sketch, the body is now a slightly larger shape. And there really is no way to correctly model…

This is very close to… Show more
