Hi, I have a surface that I would like to thicken, however I need the thickness to be non uniform. Ideally i'm looking for a way of imposing a sort of grey scale map onto the surface and create a thickness using it. Is there a way to do this or another way that would achieve the same thing. The surface I need to thicken is a very organic shape to start with.
Hello, I am having a hard times modeling this case with a sharp line around the corners. I have been using the tool " boundary surface " with sketches in both directions. Let me know if that's something someone can help me with. Thanks in advance, Celia SolidworksSurfacing
Hi I'm not able to knit all surfaces together because of Boundary-Surface 53,54 and 55 and even the spoilers. Spoilers is overlapping the surface so that makes sense but I don't know whats wrong with 53,54 and 55. Everything else seems fine. Please help! SolidworksSurfacing
I do the surface-loft them I do the cut with surface and it fails due to geometric condition. I did a similar model before and it worked so I dont know the reason its failing. Part2 worked fine Part3_3 did not work. SolidworksSurfacing
Hi all, I tried the like Measure, Section properties & Mass properties to find the surface area of the body. I couldn't able to get a one-click answer. So, later I calculated individually(or two surfaces) to find all areas of the surface. SolidworksSurfacing
Hi! For my project I am attempting to design a plastic cover that could be injection molded. The issue I am having is adding a draft to the part. The neutral plane is at a weird angle - Using the drafting tool has not worked so far.
Hello, I have this handle and I am trying to do an extruded cut, resulting in three cuts around the outside perimeter of it using this sketch. I should add they will only be a few millimeters deep and surround the entire handle. What method would I use to go about this? Thanks! SolidworksSurfacing
Hello, I am trying to make a simple, triangular, planar surface from the current sketch (Already done with the previous sketch). I know it's a closed sketch but the planar surface tool refuses to recognize the sketch as a feasible definition for it (aka the tool is unselectable/grayed out). Why is this happening? I attached the part file. SolidworksSurfacing
Hi everyone! I'm Romain, new to this forum I would like to introduce you this SolidWorks tutorial I made. It aims at modeling an Aston Martin One-77. You can find it here : http://www.solidworks-aston-martin-one77.com/ This car tutorial is complete, available as PDF, you only need to know the basics of SolidWorks.
I'm not quite sure what direction to go to complete this model the problem is this variable radius transitions that make the geometry diffucult to create. I'm close but need a little help. I may need to do some surfacing to finish it. Unfinished model attached along with dwg and jpegs of the cast part.
It has come to my attention that Mark has left SolidWorks. I advice we don't turn this into a guessing game of "why" but simply wish him the best in his future endeavours! It goes without saying that he will be missed in the SolidWorks community. Mark, maybe you'll swing by every now and then? SolidworksSurfacing
This is encouraging, it would be very handy to have an option for G2 with edge blends. Face blends to achieve this is just a hassle! http://www.tenlinks.com/news/PR/siemens_plm/100213_parasolid.htm SolidworksSurfacing
Bad News Bears. http://news.autodesk.com/news/autodesk/20111222005259/en/Autodesk-Acquires-T-Splines-Modeling-Technology-Assets I am very disappointed to hear this. We were set to purchase tsElements + T-Splines in January. Now I'm not seeing this as a good business move. SolidworksSurfacing
Look what the cat dragged in... http://www.plm.automation.siemens.com/en_us/products/open/d-cubed/product_news/2ddcm_version59.shtml Could this yield something in the future for the SolidWorks user? SolidworksSurfacing
