I was searching for weldment ability to OFFSET from the path segment. I am new to Solidworks. In Inventor it has the ability to OFFSET from the path segment. So, there is no need to create another path segment.

i have seen some annoying behavior and i think i've seen this in 2014 as well as 2017 that i'm using now. the assembly consists of several sheet metal parts, all of which have a "flat pattern" configuration. as we all know when we turn a sheet metal part into a flat pattern it creates a sketch that defines the border and bend lines. typically this sketch is only visible and active while in the "flat pattern" configuration. now my issue is that i open the higher level assembly and all of these

We normally use "bend deduction". The issue we face is that sometimes "bend allowance" or another process is selected. So in attempt to review this post and maybe "bump" the message, must have toggled assumed answered.

I am attaching an image of error happening with me quite frequently. I am also attaching DXF of this parts which shows extra lines. That makes sense because those floating dimensions are not dangling.

I'm trying to have these highlighted semicircle extrusions (supposed to be representing hot glue) removed from this assembly. Also, just on a side note is there a reason why only one entity of this two entity extrusion mirrors over? I feel like I have done the plane correct.

I'm working with a large assembly and after I rebuild the entire assembly turns red. Rebuilding again does not revert the colors back to normal. Closing out of SW and reopening shows the assembly with the proper coloring, but as soon as I rebuild again everything turns red. Any thoughts?

Begin by doing a Countersunk hole and then customize it to match your Center Drill, it may take some playing around, but doesn't take too long to master. Have used @Michael Closson's designs and updated them to configurable library features of all center drill sizes.

Multi-Body Part with split parts, individual parts/drawings won't update. Hello, I am having trouble making my split parts (which come from a multibody part) update. I created a part that has a few features that need to be updated, once I make these updates they do not reflect on the individual part its self.

I've been struggling with this feature necessity for a while and perhaps someone knows of a workaround, a simple way of going about creating it or the feature that exists that has eluded me. I need to indent the bulbous piece or really any piece into the shelled container but need it to indent past the edge and not be contained. I know I could indent and cut the edge needed but it seems like the indent tool should just be able to do this.

I'm looking for a way to use excel data to create a visual layout of an assembly in a drawing without having to manually enter and change the data in SolidWorks. If this is not possible I'll have to go about this in a different way. I'll Most likely have to manually put the data in and create the drawings.

Dimension Reference Planes I'm trying to make my life easier dealing with large assemblies by creating more smaller subassemblies instead of trying to assemble dozens of parts in my assembly file. In my mind, this is an attempt to do more "top-down" style modeling instead of bottom up (though my understanding of top down is very limited).

I work in the furniture industry and we deal with families of products as well as custom sizes. I want to use top-down assemblies/modeling along with configurations to drive different pieces in a family. For example a design will have bar stool, counter stool and side chair versions. Each have different proportions but share common design details.

I want to create the part that I attach, which basically is a cut strip bent as a cone. First strip that I did with another radius and profile angle came out perfectly, but this second strip just won't work. I want to be able to unfold the part, add some holes and then fold it back again, but I get the error message "This part contains features that cannot be unbent", even without the holes. It seems like there is a limit to what solidworks can create, because just adjusting the base line in "

For a project we are busy designing a rotary block in which products are rotated 180 degrees. We started with 3D printing of this, but we encounter a design problem that we can not solve yet. To rotate the product with as little resistance and lifting as possible, we need the rotate curve to be as level as possible.
