Insert Mate Distance (New Version)

Description:
From the author: “This macro is faster than the standard way of adding a distance mate (especially for larger assemblies) because it doesn't use the mate property manager and doesn't do a rebuild after adding each mate. It also saves mouse clicks by allowing you to enter a negative value [and calculations] for the dimension rather than having to check a box or click a button.”

Extrude boss featured solidworks

When we create an extrude boss featured solidworks, we can determine the parameters for extrudes Boss with a lot of ways, To create an extrude feature: Create a sketch. Click one of the extrude tools: Extruded Boss/Base on the Features toolbar, or click Insert, Boss/Base, Extrude Extruded Cut on the Features toolbar, or click Insert, Cut, Extrude Extruded Surface on the Surfaces toolbar, or click Insert, Surface, Extrude Set the PropertyManager options. To extrude in both directions from the sketch plane, set the PropertyManager options in Direction 1 and Direction 2. To extrude as a thin feature, set the PropertyManager options in Thin Feature. When you drag the manipulator to set the size, an Instant3D ruler appears so you can set precise values. Click .Blind. Extends the feature from the sketch plane for a specified distance. Through All. Extends the feature from the sketch plane through all existing geometry. Up To Next. Extends the feature fro…

Solidworks tutorial Sketch smart dimension

To use sketch smart dimension is very easy. We dimension 2D or 3D sketch entities with the Smart Dimension tool. We can drag or delete a dimension while the Smart Dimension tool is active. Dimension types are determined by the sketch entities you select. For some types of dimensions (point-to-point, angular, circular), the location where you place the dimension also affects the type of dimension that is added Start program SolidWorks and begin open a new part. Select the Front Plane and sketching. Make a sketch of the line consisting of four rows and three dimensions. Make sure the lower left corner of the sketch is the origin. Click on the Arc Tangent in the PropertyManager. Click on the right end of the horizontal line above. Place the tip of the arc at the tip end of a horizontal line above. Press the button to end the command line. Set the dimensions for the bow that we just created Click on the Smart dimension in-Command Manager. Create a dimension for each line of 60, 30, 20 Cl…

Basic Concepts 3D Solidworks

Basic Concepts • A SolidWorks model consists of parts, assemblies, and drawings. • Typically, you begin with a sketch, create a base feature, and then add more features to your model. (You can also begin with an imported surface or solid geometry.) • You are free to refine your design by adding, changing, or reordering features. • Associativity between parts, assemblies, and drawings assures that changes made to one view are automatically made to all other views. • You can generate drawings or assemblies at any time in the design process. • The SolidWorks software lets you customize functionality to suit your needs. • Click Tools, Options on the main menu to display the available System Options and Document Properties tabs. • The SolidWorks software saves your work for you. The auto recover option automatically saves information about your active part, assembly, or drawing document so you do not lose your work in case of a system crash. To set this option, click Tools, Options. On th…
