Ok, so i created this spline sketch, but for some reason, it does not want to extrude at all. One half will, but the front half will not. Watch bellow:

I am working on my favorite project creating hydraulic hoses for a feeder assembly. In trying to put together a master sketch for this assembly I have created a 3D sketch with the fixed points and I am running hose lines.With a cluster of hoses together it would be nice to be able to change the line colors for each hose within the sketch. Is this possible?

Attached is a file i generated from a customers geometry. I need a wayin solidworksto create arc segments and lines from this path for our machinists. They use some old version of mastercam and say that the splines generate very huge file that our machines can not directly take due to memory in the machines, and DNC is not and option.

This is a occasional issue that comes up and I don't know: I have fully defined sketches that "reverse" themselves occasionally. Below is an example.

Here I'm about to pull a smart dimension (the screenshot will not pick up the cursor) but I have a yellow mid point relation icon already. So is this a problem and how to I fix it ? Why I have the relation is a mystery to me. Re: Why can I not pull this diametion ?

I think I know the answer to this as I tried to do it and the option was greyed out, but maybe someone else is getting different results. I did find a work around by just putting the sketch picture in one of the parts in the assembly, but it would be nice to be able to have one at the assembly level and I don't see why this is not standard. Have you considered inserting a virtual Part and placing the sketch in it?

My Corner rectangle have no cross lines ? Did you turn them on? You need to check "Add construction lines" in property manager then select "From Corners".

One of our users is having an issue where after creating a dimension either in a drawing or a sketch, the dimension tool turns off. So this ends up the whole process of adding multiple dimensions: As you can imagine, this is rather maddening.

We just upgraded from SW2016 to SW2018 now the dimensioning tool doesn't behave as it did before. I used to be able to double click the dimensioning tool and it would stay active while I dimensioned my entire sketch. Now I have to keep clicking dimension for every dimension I add. I know I could right click and choose dimension from the context sensitive menu, but I just want to get the old functionality back.

Scaling or resizing the inserted image is extremely difficult. The cursor remains in "relocate" mode unless you hove over the exact right place to get the option to move the scale line, same for hovering around the corner to resize the image. Seriously, sometimes it takes me close to 10 minutes just to get an image inserted, sized and scaled.

I have been using SW 2017-2018 since it was released, and it worked fine for a while. I dident have to use it for a few months and when i came back to it SW constantly crashed when trying to sketch. I have an Nvidea GTX 1070 and know its on the naughty list as far as using approved graphics cards. But it worked, for a long time, and now it wont.

I have a problem with an extrude I am making of a curve. The extrude I am making of the sketch is set up as follows: Now when I Measure the sketched curves length, this value of about 115mm is very close to the mathematically derived value.

I'm looking to create an equations driven sketch feature that will sometimes show up on one side or another of an axis/plane. The problem is that I can't find a way to explicitly make my arc stay on "the right side". I am attaching a simple part file with a sketch that exemplifies this. If I have a rectangular-like shape with an arc for one of the sides, then if D2 is toggled between something greater and smaller than D1 (flipping the sides) , then the direction of the arc is automatically

I am preparing sketches for lofting an aircraft fuselage. some of the sketch planes are co planar to the original "front" plane, this works well because I need to dimension the top and bottom of the sketches relative to the top plane or global origin.

I set up parametric equations for a Archimedean spiral on a sketch WITHOUT using the Helical coil tool. There are reasons i did it this way which are not relevant to the problem I am encountering. Here is a screen shot of two sketches called "Spiral" and "Spiral properties." "Spiral" just has the sketch of the spiral and "Spiral properties" has the parameters (dimensions) used to build the spiral.

I've used Solidworks in school but now that I have to for work, I'm trying to improve my skills and do things more efficiently. While sketching a hole, I tried to add relations to make it in the centre of a rectangular passage but could not seem to do it. I know that I could very easily draw a construction line and fix the centre of the circle to that line, but is there no way no use relations to place it in the mid point of the rectangle?
