I'm working on a part and for some reason, a face is now missing from a solid body. The face is there, the transparency is turned off, but it is completely transparent and is see through the faces behind it. Solidworks 2015 is being used.

I am trying to do an extruded feature with an inward draft on a part I am modelling. but instead of the draft being at an angle I want it to be at a 65 degree radius. Is this possible or is there another tool which does something similar? Draft at a radius?

I'm trying to adjust the number of decimal places in the "Measure" tool, but when I click on the "Units/Precision" button, the top part of the box gets cleared out, and I can't do anything else. I have to close the command and restart it to do anything. I have the units in the document properties set for 3 decimal places, but there are times I want a little more precision, and I can't get it to work. This is rather frustrating.

SolidWorks Enhancement Requests From time to time while reviewing SolidWorks forum discussions I see instances where customers are asking for new functionality or an improvement to an existing behavior in our SolidWorks Products. Though SolidWorks employees frequently review the discussions on the forum, the most efficient way to communicate these requests is to submit an enhancement request through the enhancement request link on the customer portal.

When adding a fillet to an edge it is convex, what happens if you want a concave fillet? Are you looking for a concave fillet on an outer edge, or a concave fillet on an inner edge? Some people distinguish between fillets (concave) and rounds (convex).

Is it possible to change the default setting of the "slot" Hole Wizard function to center to center instead of the current tangent to tangent setting? For example, if I want a 1/4" loose clearance hole slot that is 1" long center to center I can input a length of "1 - 9/32" but it would be much more convenient if there was a center to center length setting!

Globoid worm gears I have just gone through the worm gear tutorial and sadly it is flawed....The tooth geometry is drawn perpendicular to the shaft and allowed to wrap around the projected curve in the video where as this is not how the teeth are generated.

equal curvature relation confusion I'm following this tip on how to add equal curvature relation between a spline and a surface, however, I'm having an understanding which planes he refers to by the"face border by that edge". I've tried control + select the spline, the edge, front plane then the equal curvature relation but nothing happens.

So I'm attempting to knit this surface, create a solid out of it, and merge it with the other body. However, despite being in contact with the other body it does not want to merge. As you can see, they are still separate bodies.

I need your help. I don't use sheet metal too much in SW so this is fairly new to me. I want to create this brace clamp but I don't know where to start.. I was thinking start with the base flange and create an indent tool for this?

Hi guys! I am trying to get a sketch on the outside surface of this bucket. The purpose of the sketch is so our burn table can etch on the surface to provide the location for items to be welded after it is rolled. I need the sketch to show up in the flat as well as the folded state to make sure the items align with the sketch.

Are you tired with all this "unbending"? I promise: this will be the last unbending challenge for a while. That is because I really hope SW 2018 will provide native wire and tube unbending functionality.

I am unable to trim away the surface overlapping the ruled surface area towards the inside of my model. What makes it even more frustrating is the whole model turns orange whenever I hover my curse over the area in cross section view. Why does this happen?

Is it possible to assign units to the result of an equation. I'm able to assign units to constants, and for the most part SolidWorks does a good job of carrying those through to the result, but in a few cases it fails. Either the wrong units, or no units are assigned to the result.
