Modeling beveloid gear I have a complex gear, that I will probably have to make an exact CAD model of it, because I will need it for multiaxis CNC machine. From what I found out until now, I won't be able to make it with classical gear manufacturing methods, at least near my location.

I have not extensively learned GD&T, so I would like to know what datum planes I'll need to select to fully auto-dimension the attached model. I am at a loss but this is what I currently have so you can see it's not fully constrained. I know auto-dimension is not the end-all, but for this, it should help give me an idea of what dimensions I need.

I've got an assembly of a CubeSat structure. I am getting stress singularity at some edges and want to apply a fillet. Problem this edge is where two different parts with different materials meat and it's not allowing me to place the fillet there.

I am very vexed by this limitation. I can create a UCS, based off points on a part/component within an assembly or in an individual part file. I can then use this as a reference for taking measurements, but I cannot use it for anything else, other than if I export the file and have that set as the UCS for the new part/file.

For a friend I'm making a mold for this fishing lure. It has been 3d scanned and recreated in solidworks. The scales however are proving to be a problem. I was able to get this done outside of solidworks.

I am using Solidworks 2018 with EPDM. When I file save as in an assembly, it then proceeds to give me a save as dialog prompt to save all the parts and assemblies in my original assembly one by one. I had this problem in 2015 and solved it by checking the box "Don't prompt to save read-only referenced documents (discard changes)" This check box is still checked. I also tried to change my registry to put a "1" in the "Abort read-only Top Docks" value.

Hi, I got the exact mass (14207.34)in Q-1 of CSWP sample exam but when I change the value of variables for Q-2, I get 16564.24 grams instead of 16490.45. I have re-modeled 3 or 4 times but can't fix. I have attached both files.

I have a batch of about 200 files that when the machine was designed, we used a custom property template to set things like description, manufacturer, material, etc. Today, we use a different template that while it includes the same information, some items are removed. We did this because we use a program to push the solidworks data into an ordering system.

I've been trying to design something like a shower head, where I split a single flow of fluid into many smaller channels. I've gotten it like this with the curved part all hollowed out on the inside, but I can't seem to place the holes. I've tried using hole wizard but I keep getting an error.

I hope you can help. I'm attempting to accurately model some of our foldable parts using the Sheet Metal feature, in such a way that we can anticipate any problems with interferences before manufacturing. I've managed to get a good start on how to work around the feature such that it allows me to have material thickness with V-Groove cuts and still be able to fold the part (thanks to the post byBernie DarazinAccommodating V-cut and Press Brake in Solidworks). As such, I have no issue with simple
