I am very new to Solidworks and I am teaching myself via a ton of YouTube tutorials, so please bear with me if I sound like a complete novice. This model has a taper when viewed from the left or right planes. I need to use the top plane as a Neutral Plane for the origin of my Draft, however I am getting the error that "Non planar surfaces cannot be selected as Neutral plane for draft". I am assuming this is due to the fact that the Top plane has a radius to it?

Do you see any difference between Split Line Intersection and Tool Intersection Curve? What do you mean, they don't produce same result, intersection curve creates a sketch and split line diverts face into two

i need made a negative body when add to another body subtract from it(for example in catia we have thisability to make negative body)? It's a bit hard to fully understand what you're after. But if I understand correctly you would like a pre-defined negative geometry you could add to your part to subtract material?

I try to extrude a sketch from "top plane" along two different curves in "front plane", in a given height and inward draft angel. The sketch is between these curves, and the curves a two revolved features. From the picture you can se the gap I try to fill.

See this part, I want coverter it a sheet metal, but this is not work, how I do this? It looks like you need to collect the other bends, you are only selecting the fixed face.

Disappearing Decal I don't know if this is a known issue, or if anyone knows of a workaround, but when I add a Decal to a part & turn on the option to "Use Underlying Appearance" on the "Illumination" tab the whole surface becomes invisible as below.

I have a single part with a few perforations on it, and three of the four configurations take ages to rebuild and I don't know why. Could someone tell me what options I should look for to see what the fourth one is doing differently from the rest that enables it to load so fast? ,configurations

forming tool here is the problem, i have a part that has formed tool feature in it, i need to make a configuration of it with the feature mirrored. if i just mirror it and then suppress the one i dont need they both suppress. so i need the forming tool in order to make a new form tool feature on the mirrored side. although i dont know where they saved the forming tool. is there any way to open the forming tool from the part being formed?

I am working on a project where I need to determine the volume between two 3D scanned objects. Because 3D scan data is produced as a point cloud, I have used Meshlab to create a mesh and FreeCad to create a solid part. The solid part can then be imported into SolidWorks and the Tool -> Mass Properties option can determine the volume of that part. So far these steps work for finding the volume of one 3D scan data object.

I need to construct this particular corrugation in solid works. It has zig zags along two axes. For visualisation, look up Miura Map Fold. The Unit Cell geometry for each parallelogram should be 120, 60 degree angles.

I just watched twenty minute of videos, hoping I'd find a clue... My 360° revolved cut is entirely inside of the previous boss. It appears to me that SW assumes I'm trying to make a sort of shell, so it does not give me the option to remove the material outside of my sketch.
