hole suppressing I have a shaft with two holes created from one feature. Right now, in one configuration, I need to suppress one of them and in second configuration I need to have them both.

This is only happening with items from the solidworks vault (items with bolts for icons in the feature manager tree). For example, a 4-40 flat washer may show up with like a 1.75" OD. No one else's cpu is doing it so I figure it has to be a quick setting but I just can't find it. Has anyone encountered this before?

I put the nuts in the assy with the pattern-driven component using the holes created with a hole-wizard (part-level) Do it as an assembly. Make your part and put the first hole in and then put the rest of the holes in using a pattern (any kind of pattern will work).

I am trying to create a wing section with a series of 18 'pressure tap' holes running down the centre. The holes have to be perpendicular to the face. I have the first hole, created by making a constructing line tangent to the profile curve, making a plane and using that to draw the circle.

Tangent Fill pattern This would be for any application where there is an accumulation of parts. So you have an area that is "X" wide and "Y" long and parts that are "Z" diameter.

Disappearing Temp Center lines I've mated several slots to slots using the "Temp Axis". When I open the assembly the mates are broken.

i am trying to make a globe of 50 cm in diameter with fiberglass by hand spun. Honestly i tried many times by using inflatable beach ball but while i spun the fiberglass wet with epoxy it started to slip over ball. Whatever i did, i couldnt avoid sllipping. Is there any way of avoiding slipage ?

Our projects consist mainly of Assemblies, built from a common set of standard Sub-Assemblies, Parts, and purchased parts, in different quantities and layouts.. My first inclination is to have a folder for each Sub-Assembly, containing the top level (sub)Assembly, as well as it's components.

Exploded view step sometimes snaps back when dragging Once in awhile when I want to drag an exploded view step with "auto-space components on drag" selected the components snap back into place when I finish dragging. I've found that if this happens I can type in a value in the distance window and they will stick and behave normally, but I haven't been able to figure out why the drag isn't working.

I suggest running Solidworks RX and packaging the files to sent to you VAR. There could be any number of things that could cause a consistent crash. A repeatable crash like this should be a no-brainer for your VAR to figure out.

I just join Solidworks Forum to ask this question: I want to create a cover lid for a box/housing and 3D printing them. I have read in another old thread that you can import the existing part into a new part file and build model from there. I have 2 questions and have 2 picture attached in this question:

I am having trouble creating a partition line for a joystick in Solid Works. I have created a 3D sketch around where this partition should happen BUT when using the filled surface feature I am obtaining something that is too wavy, and thus intersects with the outer surfaces of my solid. I tried using guide curves with no good results. Could you please help me out?

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.

I'm trying to enhance the performance of our model library and started messing around with speedpak (SW 2018). For the sake of testing, I've created trough macro an assembly with 100 unique (independent) virtual sub assies that has been speedpaked to see how SP would help.

I think I might be missing something obvious here, or maybe I was dreaming...or remembering a CAd software that hasd superior functionality. How do I step through the exploded assembly steps so that first step one is active, and all others are not, then step 2 is active and all others are not?

I have three surfaces, open “Knit Surface” tool, select all three surfaces (can see them in Selection box), check “Merge Entities”, click OK. In Design Tree window new surface “Surface_knit1” is shown and when I click on it the entire new surface in the graphic window is highlighted. But when I click in graphic window on this new knitted surface only one original surface is highlighted.

Why are many constraints, such as tangents, removed when you create a sketch block from entities? I understand that all external relations and dimensions need to be deleted. But how can I keep the internal relations when creating a sketch block?

I started an assembly of a house in SW 2011 a few months ago. It is based on assembly sketches for layout purposes (floor plan, roof profiles, etc.). Sometime around the time I upgraded to 2012, the sketches would no longer display in the graphics area (without editing them) so I can referenced them for derived parts and locating subassemblies. When I chose the show/hide button (glasses), the sketch Icon in the tree changes, but the sketch simply won't display in the graphics area.
