I am starting to set up Design Checker. I am using SolidWorks 2013. I created a new part using one of my templates. I then used the Learn Checks Wizard to create a check file based on my template.

I have a single solid part with a ACME thread sweep and every time I try to cut the part it has issues. I'm trying to show mating between the ACME thread but this one part wont allow for any type of section view, even partially offset from the parts center. I looked at your model, I found that your helix did not start at the plane where the thread sketch started.

I have been trying to add our companies custom materials to the configurations of a part. I have gone to the help section and found:http://help.solidworks.com/2013/English/WhatsNew/wn2013_Configuring_Materials_in_a_Design_Table.htm However, how do you make this design table command work with a material sub-folder under a main folder?

We recently upgraded to SW2013 and more recently to SP3. I have noticed something that is driving me crazy. In SW2012 if I had, for example, a hole dimensioned off of a flange, then I went and deleted that flange. The hole would remain as is but solidworks would throw an error and the hole feature would turn red.

I've noticed since the last update to SW pro 2018 SP5 that while I'm creating features within a part that is within an assembly, when I click the exit sketch icon, it also exits from the part into the assembly. Very frustrating, I've accidentally created features at the assembly level several times now because I haven't noticed it do it immediately, and have to go back , delete them and recreate it in the part.

I have remade the channels but I am having trouble making the wells sit higher than the channel. My original channel depth was set at 0.1mm and diameter 0.25mm. What I am trying to do is where the channel meets the wells I want the wells raised like maybe 0.50mm, is that possible? I have spent a while trying to do this and I'm getting really confused@KevinChandler @CarrieIves Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Can someone tell me why I can't make 'wrong' part flat ? I cannot see any difference between those except the fact 'correct's part sketch was based on helix. Tags:none(add)flat pattern

Remove zeroes from tolerances I forgot to mention I'm using 2018 SP4. Sorry but I still cannot find the option.

Is there a way to create a part by only using a pull down menu? For exampe, like a structural member. There are pull downs to select and SW will automatically create your part. Is there anyway I can personally create a tab/window like this and add in features of my own on a more advanced level than just adding in a "structural member" sketch?

The main issue regards the creation of a surface from an enclosed contour (created by the edges of two surfaces). The problem is that this contour is not situated in any plane so it creates a lot of problems.

I have to generate a drawing showing the locations of key components, the board shape, holes, cutouts and keepout areas on the PCB. We do not have circuit works. I will be sending the information about the PCB profile using the drawing and a DXF.

So instead of a buried correction, such as your reply above, you can make edits that will show in the forum home page. And followGlenn Schroeder's wisdom below.

I would like to scale down model in solidworks. I have attached the model here. In sketch 1, instead of having 10 mm * 10 mm square, i would like to have 0.3 mm * 0.3 mm square and instead of 20 mm (in Boss-Extrude 1), i want it to be 0.5 mm. How can i change the dimension such that all the features stay valid and final model would be exactly same as original one, only dimension would be different.

Hi everyone, I am trying to create a repeating hole in a body using two features, a chamfer and a cut-extrude. When I use only the cut-extrude, it builds fine, but when I include the chamfer, I get the message "the chamfered items are no longer in the model". Am I doing something obviously incorrect?

I am creating a headform (size designation 535) according to BS EN 960:2006, I have plotted the spherical coordinates (given in the standard) using construction lines about a central reference point and joined these points using splines to give an idea of the desired surface for half the headform. I am finding it impossible to transform the 3d sketch into a solid. I don't seem to be able to mirror the sketch about the central plane. Can anyone offer any advice?

I want to change the orientation of this sketch ( anticlockwise 90 degrees). How can I do that without losing the relations and distance constraints. Carrie is correct, but you'll probably have to remove a bunch of vertical and horizontal constraints and any parallel or perpendiculars referencing objects external to the sketch.
