I am attempting to loft the edges of this spring where the extension mates. I've drawn planes and a guide arc but I can't figure out why it won't work. It would be cheating to my university if anyone did it for me so can you just tell me what I've done wrong and I can fix it on my own? Thanks so much in advance

When a Tol Analysis is exported, it uses a default template that is not quite report friendly. Is there a template file that I can manipulate the way this data is presented? Jive Software Version: 2016.3.7.0, revision: 20170413171635.a36c780.nomerge_2016.3.7

Trying to export a drawing to .dwg format for a client and every time I open the .dwg the only thing showing is the title block, notes and dimensions. I've had this issue before and I'm pretty sure it's related to surfaces. I also get an error I've never seen before when it finishes the export. Running on SW2016 SP4.0

Refer to my attached PDF file. The title block border lines & the balloon arrows looked like clear, solid lines. But the view of the assembly is too light.

If there is a toggle/check box in settings, I haven't found it. How do I get rid of these ruled edges on drawings?

At my shop we create print packages, so a single file containing all the drawings for an assembly. I need to have separate custom properties for each sheet. so i can modify quantity and the drawn by fields on each sheet without modifying the sheet format every time. these cannot be tied into the part as we use the same parts in different assemblies. So is there a way to have my custom property tab be different for every sheet?

I can't figure out why i can't move some of my dimensions from a standard view to its detail view. It's in the exact same orientation so it seems like every dimension in the normal view should be movable to its own detail. I've been able to move some dimensions, but not others and I can't tell what's different about what will move and the ones that won't. I've tried expanding the detail circle to encompass the entire original view and then move the dimensions and they still won't move.

They're not exactly identical. The volume is only 0.04 inches off in the mass properties. Is that a big deal? I did notice a few needed changes to my drawings from this.

Hole callout won't work I've done my researching and I've tried everything from checking my file location, to changing settings in System Options/Document Properties, but I can't seem to fix my issue. I try to dimension a tap and regardless of what I do it just dimensions the hole's diameter.

When dimensioning a drawing, I constantly have to reopen a dimension and choose the "custom text position" to change the dimension to display horizontally if needed. It places the dimension vertically by default and that's OK sometimes but, have to change it if not.

I have developed a drawing template through which i have been able to link ALMOST all of its fields values to custom properties that i created in the relative part and/or assembly documents. and i said ALMOST because up till now i could not find a way to link the filed that says "quantity" (number of parts needed to be manufactured) in the drawing document of a part to its quantity property in the assembly that contains it.

A supplier for my company make 40mm x 40mm aluminium extrusion beams & we specify what lengths to cut them to. However, sometimes when they cut the beams, the cut face is not perpendicular to the main extrusion. Now I could control the perpendicularity by placing a datum on one of the 4 faces but that only controls it to that one face and could be out on the remaining 3 faces. Placing a datum on each of the four faces would work but that’s messy & doesn’t look (or feel) right.

Backstory ... We do a lot of products that are the same yet slightly different (who doesn't) and typically we've done them in separate part files. To negate excess CNC programming and such we have recently started using "Derived" configurations as all of the designs can remain in one model and be tied directly to their base part.

I have a very specific flag note that has to be added to the drawings I am working and it is not one that is in the borders database. Does anyone know of a way to add a block to the list of borders for flag notes? As it stands, we are using a block overlay-ed over the numeric, but it creates formatting issues for the notes and becomes a hassle when the notes need to be modified.

Hi, I work for a UK company which tries to use BS 8888 for its drawing standard where possible. One of the dimensions we like to use due to the nature of some of our work is the equally spaced feature (below) where you show "the number of pitches" x "the pitch" (= "total distance") as below. The dimension does have a problem in that only the total distance dimension is a true dimension. We can live with this as we check our drawings and we always double check these dimensions, but when we do
