I just sketched a rectangle, it came in with equal relations making it square. I must have sketched a zillion rectangles so guess was bound to happen one day. It's a bit fiddly to do by eyeball.

Input dimension value stopped working Input dimension value stopped working middle of sketching. I checked options, it's still checked.

Previous behaviour in SolidWorks was that when making a Hole Wizard (ie, counterbore, tapped hole), in the positioning sketch you could use Sketch Linear Pattern to lay out the points. I would arbitrarily pick an axis (usually the default one selected) and just enter the quantity of holes, then define the remainder of the geometry with conventional sketch relations and dimensions. Somewhere in the past few versions of SolidWorks, this changed, and now its like it is "fully defined" from the

Hi guys, thanks for viewing my question. I have the following design, in which I've come to the conclusion that there's a sketch (highlighted) that I'd like to `break out` and use as a starting point in multiple other designs, whilst keeping the parametric reference to the original sketch in this design. How can I do this?

I am an adult student at a Solidworks / Machining class. I'm about 4 weeks in with zero prior experience. I am having trouble with getting XY coordinates on contour parts. My intent is to insert the coordinates onto a program using notepad, then load into Haas control panel simulator.

extrude the profile shape about the midplane. create a split line using said midplane. draw your cut profile on bisecting plane and use the split line as your path. Hello Eric,... maybe a Sweep around a Tri Path..? (image/file attached)

I often find I am making both horizontal and vertical dimensions between to points, usually for hole centers. is there a way to do this at once instead of having to click: ,selecting dimensions

I have a sketch on the front plane like the one in the attached image. I want to rotate with various angles the four half circles (see the picture) about the axes AB, BC, CD and DA, respectively, in the 3D space, not the front plane. How can I do it?

I am an absolute beginner trying to do this tutorial thinking it would just take me an hour:http://learnsolidworks.com/tutorials/01_PROPELLER_TUTORIAL.pdf Then I realized creating the 3 point rectangle and putting in the right place cannot be done intuitively, atleast according to my inferior intuition...

I have a sketch with different colors and multiple line thicknesses. All looks good when editing the sketch, but after saving the sketch, the line thickness disappears, so it the colors. Both only appear in edit sketch mode.

It's probably just a graphics issue. Curves are generally displayed as a series of short straight lines, and sometimes they don't look right. You might try fooling with your settings at Tools > Options > System Options, especially the one indicated below.

Looking for some advice. I'm playing with weldments (which is confusing enough) and trying to figure out how to "properly" 3D sketch, since it seems insanely easy to over constrain lines versus normal 2D sketches. I've run into this weird case that I'm stumped by, and maybe someone can explain if I should dimension differently or do/don't add certain relations, etc. In the following picture the sketch seems to be fully defined (I hid the dimensions) and then I can draw a random line anywhere at

How do I fix the issue of when I'm in the middle of a line sketch and go to rotate the part using the center button to get a different angle/view at the part, when letting go of the rotate button (center scroll button on mouse) it end my line. I'm running 2019 currently but my 2017 solidworks never did this? Anyone know how to fix this.

Hey guys, does anyone know if there's a way to combine multiple line segments (collinear) into one line? It's something that would be useful for routing and weldments especially, but I can see the benefit for it in any sketches. We have been just deleting a bunch of them, and then redrawing it. If there were a simpler way (the opposite of splitting the entity), it would be nice.

xDesign has independence between sketches and features which is nice, I wouldn't be surprised to see this make its way into SW if the coding isn't prohibitively difficult. Darn it Deepak - you beat me to it by less than a minute! I was just getting ready to click "Add Reply" when your response popped up!

This is a recent problem for me. When I open a model and start sketching or editing, I can double click on sketch dimensions to edit them as expected. However, I am finding that if I switch windows to a different model and then come back, I can no longer double click to edit dimensions. THe only way to edit them is to go to the dialoge box on the left, highlight the current value and then change it.

Hi, I want to rotate (45deg) a sketch entity which is a converted entity. Is there a way to do this without breaking reference to the original sketch. Thank you.
