This was an imported .prt file that was run through the feature recognition software. I examined all of the features and sketches and all seemed to be ok, I left them as imported with only the base being defined. The bolt circle seems to be created correctly and has it's centerpoint at (0,0), the centerbore cut sketch seems to be at (0,0), but when I convert them to sketches all of a sudden they are out of concentric by about .002".

I have been working with extrudes and weldments and I can't seem to get the information such as material, length etc. or any other information, in to my BOM, from parts inserted in to other parts or assemblies. The parts inserted in to other parts or assemblies show up blank or not at all om my BOM. Am I missing something?

Total Length Problem! Having a major issue here. Getting ready to order material for these stairs, and somehow total length for every part is the same, but then at the end of the list it starts adding up a new length.

as attached, how to fix the red circle gaps other than using projected plane with 3D sketch. You can open a sketch on the bottom face of the Extruded Base and extrude the Sketch to the Surface of the revolve. Use the "Up to Surface" option and pick the tapered surface.

move and rotate imported model Just a late thought. For situations where we just need imported geometry to show up in a different location relative to the front/top/right planes, we usually do the following.

I modeled a chain. I'm not using the Chain/Belt Feature because I'm using DriveWorks to change the size & position of the chain based on user inputs. I have a custom property DESCRIPTION that is used in the assembly BOM and needs to say something like: #50 PITCH X LENGTH

Why does Solidworks, when you change the material of a part, only change the material in the current configuration? In Sheet metal parts we have this results in a Flat Pattern with a different material as the folded configuration.

someone please help me figure out why this is happening. The edges of the loft seem to be connecting but it leaves the inside completely hollow, resulting in zero thickness geometry error. Tags:none(add)zero thickness geometry

I am following a video tutorial from my university on how to create a differential housing and I have followed every step exactly, yet when I go to put a fillet on a certain feature I am getting an error about the fillet being too large for the surrounding area. Yet the instructors works fine for some reason. I have triple checked I have done everything exactly the same, but for the life of me I can't apply the fillet. I am using Solidworks 2017, although I am not sure what his version is.

I've looked through the forum about using the scale feature/function to reduce or enlarge the size of a model. What I find amusing is that the icon itself for 'Scale' actually depicts an enlargement. Why do I find this amusing? Because it seems that on my SW2016 SP3 that's all I can do..... enlarge.

Hole Wizard selecting near side countersink after creating countersunk hole Hi, When I use the hole wizard to create a countersunk hole it creates it as it should, but when I use the hole wizard again and select a different hole type, the 'Near side countersink' option is always ticked. It is really annoying and sometimes I forget that it has been ticked and add the extra feature, the countersink dimensions are equal to that of the last countersunk hole size I used.

While trying to find a problem, I came up with this question. Figured it would be useful to have something like this when troubleshooting. The only thing close that I could find was filtering the featuremanager. The problem is that only works with sketches that haven't been renamed...

Hole wizard is showing tap drill size for M10 screw is 8.8mm diameter whereas Machinery's Handbook is saying 8.5mm or 8.6mm. What is the reason? M10x1.25 is fine thread and uses 8.8 tap drill.

Couple days ago, I received a part from VAR ( Value-Added Reseller) and asked me how to improve the rebuild performance of a complex part. The part is an SMD (Surface Mount Device) leadframe, in order to cut down the production cost, one leadframe usually consists several hundred or more than a thousand of units. And this is how one SMD unit might look like: (below is an SMD LED component)

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!
