Hi, is it possible to make a sketch 1 XY witch lines/arks, and sketch 2 XZ withch a lines/arks and then use a "magic wand" to get 3D sketch of intersection of these two? I know i can extrude surfaces out of these two sketches and then use intersection which gives me what i want, however I'm looking for the same outcome without having the surfaces Here is example of 2 surfaces and intersection: SolidworksParts And Features

I was trying to use SolidWorks for Ship Construction drawings. However, I find it very much time-consuming, and gradually it seems to me that not much suitable for commercial 70 ~80m ship construction designs. I might be wrong. However, I would like to hear about your experience.

I believe I was told or have read at some point that all toolbox parts are "industry standard" items. If this is the case why can't I find 6.00x6.00x.375 square end aluminum angle? I specified this in a design believing this was an "industry standard" item. I found from my vendor that this item could not be found.

When extruding text in an assembly as an assembly feature the text will not follow the sketched line or curve. The entire text line does not always display on the screen, only a few characters show when the line is selected and the text jumps to the origin of the model. At first the text seems to be on the line and when dimensions are added the text begins to behave irradically. Tim Kehl SolidworksAssemblies

I am currently practicing the CSWP practice exam provided by SolidWorks however I am stuck on problem 4. I know there is some problem as shown in the picture but when I measure it, I just get the correct dimension. I would really appreciate it if someone can take a look at my attached part and see what places I got wrong. Thank you!

I am the interim admin for our PDM vault at one of our satelite facilities and one of our users uninstalled his PDM client. When I reinstalled it I could not attach to the orignial vault. It appears the vault is still attached and has the comment "Missing Information". How can I correct this and get him back into the sytem?

I model a ton of welded frames and create different widths using configurations. I have to assign a unique part number to every part that differs from one config to another, even if the only thing that's different is, for example, the length of a sq. tube. How do you handle manually entered properties in a cut list that need to be different between configurations? Is this a stupid question? SolidworksWeldments

Hi, For whatever reason, I am unable to offset entities that were imported from a DXF vector file. I know that entities cannot overlap, but I tried an offset as small as 0.01mm and it is not working. I tried to check if the sketch was closed and was able to extrude it, so it must be. Here is a screenshot of the issue.

I'm sure I remember seeing a way of posting a "voting poll". Would be a nice way to handle this thread, but can't figure out how so will just post it as a normal thread. How often does your company upgrade of replace the CAD Workstations? 1.

The relese notes of SolidWorks 2009 SP3 tells that itsupports to open files from Pro/E Wildfire 4... I got some files from a customer and SW says that it not a validpart file. Have someone had the same problem? /Mattias --EDIT-- It seams like the problem lies in the export of file that comesfrom my cutomers PDM system... files I got directly from a clientwith Wildfire 4.0 it works fine. /MattiasSolidworksImport export

Hello everyone, I got a question about the screw which is created from the SW toolbox. With the SW screw, the profile was created from revolving the sketch. With the real screw, they have a helix profile. I attached 2 fotos to let you see what the difference is.
