I'm new at solidworks and i'm modeling a curvature tank. So, i need to make sure dat the walls that creat a "Joint" be "coincidents". Is there an option when i can use a sketch from the Part1 to make the exact curvature on the Part2, and when i change it on Part1 it change automatically on Part2?

Hey, so im trying to create this sketch on the surface, but the lines keep coming up red, and i cant get the vertical line to coincide with the bottom edge. any help would be much appreciated. Tags:none(add)surface modelling

I'm just wanting to dimension something symmetric to a centerline, like thisbluedimension below: And that was successful in the instance above: The symetry line is the dashed line, and I wanted to create the .750 offset line based on a 1.500 total distance.

Even though Circular Sketch Pattern and origin point is used to develop this model. Why sketch is not symmetry? I do know whetherCircular Sketch Pattern will bringsymmetry.

I just got into solidworks this quarter and overall I like it, before solidworks my go to was sketchup and I really liked how malleable everything was in that. I was wondering if there was an easy way to slope and bend objects like I could in sketchup where I'd just grab a corner and pull it down or move an edge downward and it'd bend at the next point it was connected to? Like you I moved to SW from Sketchup and I think you'll really enjoy/prefer it when you get the hang of it.

Hello all, im currently studying engineering and trying my best to get better with solidworks. I have an object that i want to model in solidworks, so i can model a shell that will be used to strengthen its skeleton against falling, bumping and so on. I already have an idea for how my shell should look like, my main problem is modelling the object itself. You can see the object in the picture with white background.

closed sketch highlight In SW 2017, a feature was introduced which I call the "closed sketch highlight," meaning when you get a sketch closed and extrude-able, the area inside the boundary changes color to indicate that that loop is closed.

Clicking Smart Dimension button with sketch geometry selected I moved from SolidWorks 2014 to SolidWorks 2017 this year, and I feel like there's been a change in how dimensions are added to sketches.

This is a recent problem for me. When I open a model and start sketching or editing, I can double click on sketch dimensions to edit them as expected. However, I am finding that if I switch windows to a different model and then come back, I can no longer double click to edit dimensions. THe only way to edit them is to go to the dialoge box on the left, highlight the current value and then change it.

For some reason when I draw now the display by the mouse cursor gives me a = "length" and d = "degrees" of the line. As before when drawing a line or any other shape, it would let me enter the dimension right by the mouse cursor and have lines pop up and let me know I am perpendicular. I can not figure out how to get it back to the original that I am used too.

Are there a lot of people who would be interested in this functionality? As I said... easy to program. It's an interesting challenge. I'm just about done with a macro to do this.

I have a second orientation triad over my origin when I am trying to sketch. It's not a deal breaker, but it's annoying, since I already have one in the corner. Anyone know how to make the second one, over the origin, go away?

Could you show me the way to perform offset entity like SW Mania 2008 @ 04:03. I don't know how to do that! I want 2 yellow lines to offset inside 2 blue lines!

I am hoping someone can help me with a very frustrating problem. I am using a series of planes to drive a bunch of geometry (holes, the fitting that go in the holes, welds, etc). Out of the blue, the sketch planes I am creating suddenly started "rotating" 90 degrees. This means when you go to sketch, Y is no longer up.

What does 'dn' mean? What do those "dn"-s mean? How do I sketch that?

I'm having this problem off and on. In sketches, vertices are shown some distance from their edges. When I mouse over the edge or vertex, the cursor has to be offset from the feature I'm trying to grab in order to work. In the attached shot, the red x shows where I had to take the cursor to find the highlighted edge.

This is a fully defined 3D sketch. Two 3D arcs are in outside. When I exit from the sketch mode, I could see two 3D arcs have gone inside. What is the reason for that?

How to fully define this 3D sketch? Start with basics, try dimensioning anything blue again, start with the straight lines. You will also note that your blue corner arcs (furthest right) show no radius.

Hi all, first time posting, hope I'm not doing anything wrong. I'm trying to make a 3d Sketch for a welded frame I'm designing, and no matter what I do I seem to keep running into weird situations where Solidworks thinks the sketch is overdefined for reasons I can't even begin to imagine. I'll have a perfectly fine sketch, and then I try to draw a line connecting two points, or a circle concentric with another circle, and all of a sudden over half the relations in the sketch turn yellow or red
