I'm struggling to figure out how to loft to a non-parallel surface, or, create a bead like surface in solidworks. It's not possible to simply layer lofts since some faces cut between lofts. For example, my model here:

I am new here, so please forgive/advise me if I am not following typical procedures or if I need to include more information/files/pictures/etc. I have scanned a drone propeller with a 3D scanner and am trying to create the leading and trailing edges. The Y-axis is from the center of the hub to the far edge of the prop blade. The Z-axis is the axis of the central hub.

I am trying to give thickness to the bow section of a yacht's hull surface. I keep getting error messages and can't get to thicken the surface. I have cleaned the surface and repaired faces and gaps, but still can't get it to work.

Can't thicken surfaces I've been making a chassis for a car for the first time, and I've come to a point where I find it necessary to thicken my surfaces in order to progress further. The problem is that I get the error message "unable to thicken surfaces" when trying to do so, if anyone can see why and provide me with an answar or possibly a solution I would greatly appreciate it.

Can anyone give me some guidelines/advice. Hello Nuno,.. what you can do is create a curve networks to form nurb 4 sided patches/boundaries,.. using planes or directly on the mesh.. keep tweaking/interpolating til you get it as close as possible. (image attached)

Hello Christian,.. so, here's the game... it's been going on for > who the hell knows.. and it's one of my pet peeves of this pita program because NOBODY at SW Corp or ANY Var gives rats.. While others are having a good time now in Texas, I'm stuck home with a stupid deadline proposal and working over the weekend

I want to create an extruded profile that is capped on both ends. However, I only want it to be a single-direction protrusion. There is the "Cap End" option that shows up under the Direction 1 options, but that only caps one end of the protrusion. I want the other end (the end that is on the sketch plane) to be capped as well.

Hi to all. I am trying to prepare .stl file for cfd simulation. I downloaded stl file and I am trying to make a solid from it so I can model it further because I am a newbie in Solidworks surface.

Hi, I've been struggling with the creation of a surface on the lines of a boat hull. I can make the surface all the way to the bow, where the profile lines meet at the centerline of the hull.

Pattern Surface Trim I am trying to generate certain cuts in a flat surface, but my idea is to only create one sketch, generate the cut and then make the LINEAR pattern with that Surface Trim. I want to do the work this way, because sometimes is messy to control the patterns inside a sketch.

boolean bodies is there a one command way of removing the hatched area with the purple body? Like boolean objects in other software.

Hello everyone! Is there any way to find out how the deformation plots for the surface flatten feature are determined in SW 2017 and is there a way to modify the constraints? I want to minimize the amount of compression, or stretch in the flattened projection individually. The current settings or constraints seem to try to optimize both.

I try to replicate Paul Salvador’s other post (Parting Surface Problem) work with little modifications. Sketch23 does not trim this surface but when part of the Sketch23 turn into construction line then trim works. ..maybe a rounding error?

I have a screw which I wish to use to pierce two bodies which are meant to fasten to eachother. I am achieving this by using the screw as a boolean in a combine operation. However, the combine operation creates a body in which the screw is a child, and then I am unable to use the screw again to boolean the second piece.

Mirroring bodies with appearances don't retain correct appearance application after mirroring bodies with applied appearances the the new bodies (the mirrored ones) have the appearance all messed up. For example, I set the appearance at a body level but after mirroring the cloned bodies have the appearance as a face appearance instead;

What is the best way to setup a shortcut key for hiding a sketch; an equivalent to the Tab key for hiding surfaces and bodies? Ideally the Tab key should take care of hiding the sketches too. Currently, I click on a sketch and RC to select Hide.

I have what appears to be a simple curved loft (along the curve at the bottom), but I can not get it to build. Can someone please tell me what about this design may be illegal? Thank you so much! I have attached the part.Capture.PNG
