working on a 3D sketch to define lofting profiles for an aircraft fuselage. Its not a huge sketch and not nearly as complex as others I have worked on. Yet on one of the profiles (on plane FS191.00) as soon as I try to dimension anything on it, SW instantly crashes. Thats not a real shock, since SW crashes more than all other programs on earth combined, but I would like to finish this.

I need to thicken Surface-Knit1 0.50 mm outward. But it says "unable to thicken the surface". I tried to change the knit and to find the locus of the problem. It seems it is the part at the front corner of the mouse in that knit.

So lately I've been noticing that I cant trim surfaces that are clearly intersecting. I've mainly noticed it after I have offset a surface from an original part and then try to trim that surface. I'm not quite sure why I'm having this issue now when I haven't in the past. Any ideas?

Hi, It is possible in solid works and inside support structure what will not be touching surface? I got the surface model ( created by connection two profiles by surface ), now I need add inside support but i should not touching surface. because it make export for 3d print really bad

After rendering this modeled pitcher into a rendering program and making it a transparent material. The seams of the model show up? Is this due to how it was modeled? Or is there a way in SolidWorks to eliminate these seam lines prior to importing into a rendering program?

Wondering if this would be a desired enhancement among the surfacing community. If we can extend a surface in a single command, how about retracting a surface in a single command versus trimming by various means.

Is there any way to remove this portion? I only know extrude cut. I wish to know any other way.

i have a surface that has numerous curved surfaces, is there a way to turn off the continuity boxes? There is literally hundreds of them and it makes it very difficult to see or to make smooth movements. Jive Software Version: 2016.3.7.0, revision: 20170413171635.a36c780.nomerge_2016.3.7

I have a model with an organic surface. Nothing crazy just a few different curves on it. There is a hole in the middle of this surface that I want to know the surface area of. Currently I will convert the edges of this hole into a sketch, extrude it, and then use the evaluate tab to find the area of the surface.

Just trying with surfaces. Different Profile orientation was selected from options but differences are not clear enough. Are you able to pinpoint the differences?

I'm trying to repeat the exercise I saw in this you tube video. Starting at about 2:30 minutes in the video. Here you can see he has lofted surface that has been split.

In this video Merge solids and Knit Surfaces options are unchecked. I tried with checking these options, result is okay. What is the reason these options are unchecked.

I got a question in the exam that required a surface gap to be filled and a fillet put in its place but as I don't use surfacing that much I didn;t have a glue what the best method to do it was so I left it. please could someone throw some light on this so I know for future. thanks I have attached the model file and its the large are to be repaired and they state a fillet of 9.525mm

when I was doing surface modeling, I have encountered some problems about the surfaces quality with hours' struggling.

Inconsistent Edge Outline Another thing that I noticed after installing SW 2017 is edges on surfaces would have an inconsistent, broken, outline. Would that be a Video Card issue?

ever since I installed SW 2017 I have this strange model rotation block. The model stops rotating when it hits that point of what it looks like 180°. It does it in all directions. Does anyone know what that could be?

Hello guys, I have exhausted all resources I could muster up and have not found a solution to this. I have a surface and I want to flatten it, then, put holes on it, then, bring it back to its original form except with the holes that I placed after flattening it.

workflow question I have a workflow question that if I get answered will make my life a lot less frustrating. When I model I end up hiding surfaces but when I need the hidden surfaces back I end up scrolling up and down the features or the Surface Bodies folder at the top looking for the orange outline of a surface that I need shown again.

Flattening half pipe I have been spending a few hours now trying to Flatten this part on the 2017 Standard Version. I do not have a premium version and can therefore not use the flattening command.

Why does solidworks sometimes flip connectors in boundary surfaces on rebuilds? Any way to prevent this from happening? Sometimes the boundary blend fails and all i have to do is flip the connectors to fix it. But often the downstream features are now connected to flipped edges because the boundary blend was flipped so i have to go through the tree and fix every failed feature.

Boundary Surface I am experimenting with Boundary Surface tool. If I click curve points on right side of the plane I am getting proper result.

I started using SW 2017 a couple of days ago and notice something I haven't seen in 2016. Please take a look at the attached visual aid.First, features don't have the children sketches absorbed in them. Usually you go to the feature in the tree and expand the feature to see what sketch it is using. Second, If it is a sketch used up above, the dynamic reference visualization arrows will point to that sketch,but as you can see from the image the dynamic visualization arrows are not pointing to the
