I know this question has been asked before and I have gone through almost all the discussions on this topic but I can't get my head around this. I have created a 3-D sketch from a curve and I need to cut extrude this shape/sketch (formed by the gray lines) to a depth of 2mm. What's the best way to proceed provided I already have a 3-D sketch?

I have a model of a cylindrical vacuum chamber with several holes and need to project the whole inner surface of the long part to a plane ("unroll it"). Is there a way to do this in solidworks? What I want to end up in the end is a sketch of the positions and shapes of the holes that I could use to manufacture a sheet, that when roled to a cylinder exactly matches the geometry of the chamber inside.

I am a University student and have come across a massive hurdle that is stopping me progressing to the next part. I require the attached surface model to be thickener slightly by a couple of (mm) so I can split the model into parts to create a lid and bottle type set up.

I am trying to model a kitesurf fin using the surface feature and I have a few issues: 1./ When I apply the loft feature on on the profile, it doesn't include the two parts on the extremities. Is it normal?

Surface Fillet extends past Surfaces I encountered a problem while trying to create a fillet for 2 surfaces. For some reason the fillet "extends" beyond the selected surfaces.

How to force filet to reach the very edge of surface? When trying to round the concave edge, fillet "ends" before it reaches the outer boundary.

Someone send me a model of a small engine in .stp format. When I open this in SW2017 it comes in as almost 12,000 surface bodies. I just need a single dumb solid. My computer is old and slow.

I picked up a vase to 3D print but the model is rubbish. So I decided to recreate it on SW (I don't know how to use other softs).

After making a cast of a paralyzed forearm and hand, I made a 3d scan from it and then through rapidworks have it converted to a number of surface and imported this in solidworks. I have been trying to do something like you can do in rapid works where you select the mesh and you can drape a surface that will follow the scanned data but it does not quite do it right. Does solid works have anything like that where you can make this collection of surfaces one smooth surface. The only way I know how

I'm having trouble knitting this into a solid body for me to shell out and render. It is saying it can't knit it but it is not saying where I'm going wrong and not showing me where the open surfaces are.

Hello, I made a sketch, Surface-Revolved it. Now trying to Extruded-Cut a hole through the object, but the Extruded-Cut option is unavailable, it is greyed out. Not sure, but it seems SolidWorks does not see the Surface-Revolve as a solid body and therefore will not cut it. Thoughts?

This is a Fully Define Sketch because sketch is not moving by pulling the corner. Part file is attached. It is colour change of the sketch and indication in right corner bottom of screen tell us it is a "Fully Define Sketch".

I have created a 3d model of my own car using simple surfacing tools. But i cant seem to create a solid from within in order for me to run CFD analysis in Fluent. Appreciate any help from all.

I am making a model of a traditional norwegian hardanger fiddle, and it has som challenges. The geometry is quite complex, and to achieve a model with both outside and inside geometry I have made some profiles and 3d-sketches and used a lot of lofted surface. Then I extrude material to the outer surface, and try to remove with a cut to the inner surface.

I do not have much experience with Insert a picture and sketching. Only this view is available for this picture. Is it possible to develop model like this by means of inserting this picture and sketching?

Took a solid model and converted everything to surfaces for simulation. I have two configurations and every time I switch configurations or rebuild the model I lose edges that I was using to extend the surface and also different sketch relations go missing. It seems the surfaces keep changing their ID or something. Very frustrating after wasting days trying to get it to work.

I'm using Combine>Add to combine 3 Solid bodies into one. They are all touching each other with no interference (I'm going to troubleshoot that myself here after I get done posting). This is a model that was created in SW2006, that is now being adapted for a new purpose.

I'd like to wrap or fit text to a complex surface. Does anyone know how this can be done? The wrap feature works on prismatic surfaces (cylindars, cones, etc) it doesn't work on complex surfaces.
