New in SolidWorks. Building family table of SHCS and I want to add mate references for easier assembly of bolts. No matter what I do, when SHCS is inserted into assembly, only concentric mate (1st mate) works, second mate (coincident) does not work. If I place coincident as first mate and concentric as a second one, then coincident mate works but concentric mate (as second one) does not work.

Here is an interference between the hinge and the body. Resizing the hole where the pin goes will cause interference. Two options, remove the material or move the hinge outwards .

Hi all, I am trying to insert a plane in solidworks, and when I do, no options pop up for me to create the plane. If I click some surfaces and left click a plane is generated which tells me I can, but I get no options like everyone else does in the left taskbar. What should I do? Thanks

I'm trying to learn how to create a thread on a trilobular shape body. To do this I downloaded an excellent model from 3D Content Central and worked my way back through it. Everything works fine until I try the Cut-sweep on the composite curve. This generates with no error messages but the thread does not show.

I just can't remember how to do it at present. I want to be able to hide the features from the feature tree in the model in a sldprt, while the whole is still complete.

I'd like to add a diamond pattern knurling (shown in the screen shot below) to the surface of the grip model I have attached. If anyone has some suggestions on how to do it, please let me know. The grip is not round. It flares out at each end and has a slight oval shape in the middle.

I have 3 parts, one on top of the other. The top part is a ring which requires slotted holes with the axis pointing towards the center of the ring. The second part right below it is another ring (used as a standoff) which requires clearance holes on center of the slotted hole. The third part which is the base requires tapped holes on center of the slotted hole.

Linear patterning linear pattern I need to create a lattice structure composed of patterned unit cells and completely parameterized by global variables. I used the linear pattern feature to create a plane of unit cells controlled by two global variables, "instances" (number of unit cells along edge) and "lattice_param" (the unit cell edge length).

i was wondering, is it possible to get all the sketches and planes from the master part propagated to the split parts when doing the split operation? The same way as with the Insert Part feature I can get all the sketches and planes propagated, I would like to have the same also in my split bodies. I know I could use the Insert Part and then apply Intersect and repeat for each of the body, but I need 16 of them, so it would really be easier if the Split feature could do that for me.

I have an assembly that contains parts, where i have made some links between then. For example I have a metal stamping die, where I have the main surface of the die in strip layout, and I copy that surface to the stamping die to draw it.
