Spline Wrap Fail Anybody know what could cause this? Seems like a rather spectacular fail given the simplicity of the sketch...

i am sitting with more than 800 surfaces in an imported part and when ever i delete a surface, i have to wait while the whole lot rebuilds...very frustrating you tried the freeze bar?http://help.solidworks.com/2015/english/SolidWorks/sldworks/c_Feature_Freeze.htm

I have used the hole wizard and a tapered tap option to tap a hole where I want in tapered pipe tap, but since it's on a curved surface SW won't allow me to thread a curved a surface. This leads me to believe that I may need to tap and thread the hole manually, but I am unsure of how to go about doing that to a production level standard (as I understand the thread profiles are not to be used for production quality stuff, which is what I am trying to do)

it’s a circularish profile/very stretched ellipse shape. Re: Hi everyone, I am pretty new to SW and need some guidance (please). I am making a structure which I have placed a sweep cut on an wells that sit on top of the sweep cut.

Hi everyone, I am trying to create a repeating hole in a body using two features, a chamfer and a cut-extrude. When I use only the cut-extrude, it builds fine, but when I include the chamfer, I get the message "the chamfered items are no longer in the model". Am I doing something obviously incorrect?

I am trying to cut a fillable reservoir, similar to the part on the left, I am trying to achieve this by revolve cutting the sketch on the right and the displayed error message appears. does anyone have any suggestions? Your centreline doesn't count towards the complete loop. Convert that to a regular (non-construction) entity, then add another centreline out of the top of the sketch around which you can revolve.

I've noticed since the last update to SW pro 2018 SP5 that while I'm creating features within a part that is within an assembly, when I click the exit sketch icon, it also exits from the part into the assembly. Very frustrating, I've accidentally created features at the assembly level several times now because I haven't noticed it do it immediately, and have to go back , delete them and recreate it in the part.

I have a part that is a multi body part. I want to move one body away in a single direction and have the distance it moves be different in different configurations. I could swear I've done this before, but I can't get it to work as either a translation or a distance constraint. What am I missing?

I want to change the orientation of this sketch ( anticlockwise 90 degrees). How can I do that without losing the relations and distance constraints. Carrie is correct, but you'll probably have to remove a bunch of vertical and horizontal constraints and any parallel or perpendiculars referencing objects external to the sketch.

Incrementing Numbering Pattern I have a hole pattern, and I want to put an extruded cut text number next to each hole. Each hole number should be incremented from the one previous.

In my attached CAD file, I designed one hole on a leg of my soft robot and made a linear pattern of it. This linear pattern of holes are all 0.51mm away from the top surface (which is sloping), thus their heights are all different. When I try to mirror these holes on to the other 4 legs though, they seem to take reference off that same surface and I can't seem to change their reference surfaces to be their own legs.

Ribs modeling I would want the vertical rib not to go past the inside face of the outer skin of the planter. If you do the section view of the right plane, you will see that.

Shelling with complex geometries I'm a student in college working on a project, and have relatively little experience with Solidworks so please bear with me. My teacher gave me a mesh file, which I converted to a solid body.

I have been using Solidworks 2014 without any hiccups for the past 2 years on a HP elitebook 8570w laptop (64 bit, 8 Go RAM, dedicated graphics card). I used extensively the hole wizard in many designs. ''Out of memory or other error trying to initialize data source from standards file "C:/Users/ ...my file path... /HoleWizardFavorites.mdb''

May I ask who has a plug-in for SW model generation, which is similar to partcommunity and can be used in mechanical design and model selection? Thank you very much You can make one for yourself using Configuration Publisher (this is a function inside SW) OR DriveWorksXpress (this is a free add-in inside SW, available since 2008)

Curve Driven pattern Maha,.. the Face (blue) is contiguous (a single face/spline),. yours is not (does not go all around), it has 3 faces or splits.... so, either you make the side face contiguous OR alternatively,... select the Top Face.

Trouble renaming features I've been having a problem where I try to change the name of an item in the feature tree and it kicks me out of the text box. So when I hit F2 I have to hit it a couple times and then when the text box stays open I start typing and half way through it will kick me out.

EQUATIONS I have several equations for a part and the evaluate to value is at 6 decimal places for the surface area and total area how do I reduce the decimal places to say 3. Off topic, but I don't recommend using actual superscript characters in your names.

Had a odd thing happen when editing a sketch. File is 2018. Had a point fly way off in space so I zoom/fit found the point and deleted it. So not the file behaves like it is 1 million units large.
