I am trying to create a part which looks like in the image. My sweep function fails when I try to build a second helix on the first one. The error message as "Smooth path is needed for sweep with twist " Any suggestions would be highly appreciated. Thanks SolidworksSketching

I made a sketch in the hole wizard. Then I drag the points to the right place. As soon as I release them on those points they are gone. SolidworksSketching

Hello! I updated to Solidworks 2020 and this is how sketch lines look like. The left is a regular line a right is supposed to be a centerline... Does anyone know how to fix this? SolidworksSketching

Hi, I would like to increase the distance between the lines as well as the number of lines which I created using a linear sketch pattern. I forgot to use dimensioning x spacing when I created it earlier. Now I would like to know how can I increase the distance between lines and the number of lines that I created earlier using Linear Sketch Pattern? SolidworksSketching

I would like to split a few curves by some intersecting surfaces. Could you please tell me how can I do that? For example in the following picture, I would like to split the curves by surface. SolidworksSketching

I am very familiar with the equation driven curve to create both 2D and 3D curves. However, does anyone know if there is a way to draw a spline and have the software output a parametric equation used to draw/approximate it? ‌ ‌ ‌ ‌ SolidworksSketching

Hi, I would like to project the curve on the surface. I used project tools but it is not working. I worked with this feature many times but this time it is not working. Could you please tell me the reason and how can I solve the issue? SolidworksSketching

I've mostly created this part, but need to add threads and the knurling around the perimeter. I already have the lower edges to either side of the knurl and the angled sides of the knurl. I imagine I just need to create a single V groove and duplicate it. Can someone point me to an appropriate tutorial or just give me the high points? SolidworksSketching

I need to add a 52mm x .75mm thread to my model, but that thread isn't available and the two boxes that let me specify those dimensions are disabled (i.e., greyed out). How can I create this thread? SolidworksSketching

Do we have a option to Copy & Paste sketches with Reference in Solidworks? I like to copy few entities of sketch from one to another sketch and want it to be pasted with Reference. This is something which is in AutoCAD. Thanks! SolidworksSketching

After a recent crash my sketch tab at the top docked area shows the import diagnostics and import geometry buttons instead of the normal sketch tools. I have to keep a separate sketch toolbar on the side of my screen to actual create sketch details. Is there a setting I can change to fix this? See attached image below. SolidworksSketching

See "Enable on screen numeric input on entity creation" is a great feature, but snapping shouldn't take precedence over the value entered by the user. I assume whoever wrote the code for the feature disagreed. I'd be interested in hearing the reasoning behind that decision. SolidworksSketching
