I have discovered that some of the points in my sketch havehorizontal or vertical relations. This makes no sense to me. Deleting the relation breaks the sketch definition. What relation could I substitute for the H & V? 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

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

Hi everybody, There is a part and I have created text which is linked to some dimensions of the part (photo 1). When I delete the reference dimension, a long text (dimension reference address) is created by the software because the dimension does not exist anymore (photo 2). Is there any way to define “zero, 0” instead of a long text in the SolidWorks? Thanks SolidworksSketching

first thing I don't like about 2010 is you can't exit a sketch by double clicking off in space... according to SW "this is the intended behavior and it has been fixed in 2010" what gives! yes, I know I can mouse gesture and all that.. but man 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 have 3 circles that I want to create a 3 point arc with.The problem is that I want the tangent to be on the "upper" halfplane of all the circles. SW seems to choose which side it wants inan almost random fashion. Is there and way to force it to use acertain tangency side?SolidworksSketching

Does good morning, know me to explain because when a drivenperforation meets another hole in the mass in table the explanationyou perforate it marks passing hole even if it is not him/it? ThanksSolidworksSketching

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

How do I add a hole in a plate which is aligned to an existing hole in another plate in the assembly? I want to prevent external references. 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 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

I was playing with the auto trace function in pictures andworking on a logo to laser cut. After I get the splines lines isthere anywhere to convert the spline lines to lines and arcs? My software that is used to cut the part has to read lines andarcs. SW2008 SP4.0 Thanks, Bob Switala SolidworksSketching

I have a hole pattern on a surface or side that I need tostart. I have placed the first tapped hole in the upper left handcorner. What I need to do is to dim. this hole then change the dimto move the hole. SW won't allow me to change the dim.

I myself don't really get the equation driven curve, math gives me the shivers... But it seems like equation driven curves can do some really cool things. Does anybody have cool equations to share? Either practical, mesmerising to look at, or just plain fun SolidworksSketching

Created a sketch in shape of a heart using spline. Then offset entity. Extruded the shape for thickness. When sent to 3d extruder printer the part prints as two splines not solid.
