When I'm dimensioning inside a sketch, SW has a bad habit of selecting stuff behind it when I'm trying to stop/accept the dimension. Especially in 3D sketchs as SoldWorks tries to dimension from whatever face of a part I'm near. Is there some command that I don't know about to just accept what is currently dimensioned?

If you want to sketch these type of curve which is a most suitable tool. But, it depends on the situation.

The segment tool for sketches isn't working for 3D sketches but works for any planar sketches I make. Is there a reason this doesn't work in 3D? It appears to know how and where to create the points but after clicking okay, nothing appears.

I have a part shaped like a wrench with a certain opening that works on a certain machine setting. I have text on the wrench that is to state the machine setting and the opening. I have a design table with the different openings listed.

Is there any secret to get a linear pattern to follow a line rather than the x or y axis? I'd like to make a pattern using a construction line to determine the angle rather than an axis. If select the entities I want to pattern then select the line to set the direction it simply adds the line to the list of entities to pattern and retains the x axis as the direction.

Sketch references Hi, I am new to Solidworks 2017 and am currently geared towards Creo. I would like to simply select sketch references on the face of a part (edges, plane intersections, circles, etc) so that my sketch geometry will snap properly in place.

Sketch stopped automatically determining start points When trying to sketch a new line for either the origin or a line endpoint I'm the cursor is not highlighting the point (to ensure the new line begins exactly on the point) or giving me horizontal/vertical reference lines. Any Idea what setting this is?

I have created two spline curves that intersect like an oval. Both of them are mirrored over a center construction line. Yet, I'm having trouble dimensioning the two lines on the max points an their y axis.

What is the new shaded area called and how can I turn it off? When the sketch creates a watertight boundary we get this new shaded area. Cute.

Use sketch relations and dimensions to fully define a sketch. Understand the status of a sketch, either under defined, fully defined, or over defined. Evaluate a sketch to determine why it is under defined.

Use sketch relations to fully define a sketch and capture design intent. Learn about automatic sketch relations and sketch relations that you add manually. Add relations between two lines to understand common sketch relations. Add relations between circles and arcs to observe additional sketch relations.

I am in the process of building a loudspeaker enclosure which requires modelling a folded horn. Please check the image for visual representation. So i've been playing with equation driven curves etc but can't figure out a elegant way to create an exponential curve which follows a path.

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.
