So I created a skeleton part that is just a 3d sketch. ie Part1A Then I created a new part and inserted the above part into it and used it to create my first part. ie Part2A

Does anyone have quick tip on how to model an internet cable in SW? I don't have SW electrical so I can't use the routing feature. Thank you

I'm attempting to add a 3/16 fillet to an edge as shown in the attached image. The edge I selected is highlighted in blue. The problem I'm encountering is that the fillet is extending past the length of the edge all the way to the next surface as shown in the image by the yellow wireframe preview. I only want the fillet to be the length of the edge.

Sheet metal:Lofted bend breaks model Hi, I'm trying to make a "tweezer" looking thing, and it needs a twist around the bottom, I read some posts and found that "lofted bend" is the way to make a twisting feature along a sheet metal part. However when I do this my model breaks:

We would like to add hole sizes for other standard components that we use that are not currently in the hole wizard. It looks like to implement them into the hole wizard we would need to manual modify the hole wizard database. is anyone capable of doing this this? We tried using other methods such as library features and hole favorites but neither of these options work as well as the hole wizard.

Hello, my friend and I are attempting to model a manifold and it specifies a threading on two holes. We're unsure on how to go about it. We both attempted the hole wizard and thread feature but to no avail. The internal thread is based off of the attached print with H = 1/4 and A= 1/8.

I am trying to extrude walls (think drywall) in a sketch. When I use the "Extruded Boss" command, I receive the error message: "Sketch text is not available for thin features." when confirming (clicking the check mark) the feature. The sketch I'm using is a 2D sketch imported as a new part from a .dwg file, that I assume to be the original CAD drawing of our building (or at-least a variation of it).

I have stp files that I have to recreate the exact geometries in SolidWorks, but set specific sheet metal characteristics like k-factor and bend radius. Right now I am importing the stp file and running the diagnostics and feature recognition, which gives me the geometry of the part as a SW file, but it is not a sheet metal part. Is there a way to convert this part to a sheet metal part and set the parameters?

I created a 3d object I would like to scale down by one half. How can I do this? There's a Scale function Just search for it in the search bar or go to Insert > Features > Scale.

I am using a feature "Curve through xyz points " and then I am coverting this curve into 3D sketch. When I try to wrap this 3D sketch on cylinder I can not do that. I think for using wrap feature I need to have 2 D sketch. So is there any way to create 2D spline by giving a set of points in text format ?

I made a part. Then I made a drawing for that part. Now I'm making a part based on my drawing. Is there some automatic way to check if both parts are identical or do I have to manually look at every dimension?

it is a 90 deg bend and the hole pitch i require is 100mm. however the circular pattern tool is asking me for the pitch in degrees and im unsure of how to do this, does anyone have a calculation i can use for future ? This assumes your Pitch is the arc length and not chord length.

I am trying to recreate a model of a solidworks part to change the bending parameters (i.e. k-factor and bend radius). I need to overlay the parts to make sure I created it correctly. Is there an add-on or anything else that allows you to overlay and edit the part easily?

I've been asked to change some tapped M6 holes (cosmetic threads only) on a model to rolled formed M6 holes. I'm using SW2015 and I don't see rolled formed as a type of tapped hole. Am I missing something (maybe because I'm using an older version of SW)?

I modified an assembly and had to insert an import part. Unfortunately this part was modified and I can't run the Import Diagnostic on it. The warning message bother me on the assembly and drawing. Can this be fixed?

I've scoured the internet and the forum but can't seem to find a good reference or tutorial for creating a fine woven wire mesh as in the type you would normally use for filtration. The woven mesh I need to create would be from 0.25mm SS wire. From what I have learnt so far, obviously there is linear patterns involved, but I'm not sure of how many repedative sweeps I have to do initially or where the sweep ends should finish (high or low) on each end on my first wire.
