So I think my parts are injection molding ready. However, when I do normal draft analysis on the base part on 'gradual transition' at 1 degree, it comes out fine (see picture). But when I do the draft analysis when creating 'Parting Line' it has yellow sections along the ribs (which are there to support the lid in place and not for structural purposes).

I am trying to do a drawing and every other time I go to save my work (ctrl S) SWX will crash. Is there anything I can do about this. Are you trying to get it to crash every time, instead of every other time?

I have been running my one man Design Consultancy for almost 20 years now, providing mechanical design services to a wide range of companies in the areas of vending machines, gas and solid fuel heating appliances and commercial refrigeration equipment. I love Engineering and also love to make things. As a Designer, I've mostly had to write the story to guide others to make things which can be frustrating when you see people butchering your work !

I am a beginner using SW Flow Simulation, unfamiliar with this software. I would like to design a venturi tube mixing water with air, and simulate the air suction because of the pressure drop in the throat section. This is my simulation, but I would like to know how air and water mix separately...... according to previous comments, it seems that this software can't model the mixing interface between air and water.

help about materials etc. hello everyone, my friend and i have to do a school project with solidworks and try to invent or improve something that will make everyday life easier. we've thought about making a boiling pot and put a draining hall on the side of it, near the bottom so you can drain liquids from it in case you are making pasta or something of this sort. i wanted to ask you what do you think will be the best way to try and create such thing and what materials would you make the parts

I need some help with a few different things for this part: 1.Making the bottom ribs/vanes attached to the bottom of the part. This is difficult because the bottom of the part is a thickened boundary surface, so it won’t let me select the surface for a sketch.
