Make it sketch driven patterns

Creates the pattern using only the geometry (faces and edges) of the features, rather than patterning and solving each instance of the features. The Geometry Pattern option speeds up the creation and rebuilding of the pattern. You cannot create geometry patterns of features that have faces merged with the rest of the part. On learning solidwork this time we will try to make the facility located in solidwork namely Sketch Driven Patterns By using the sketch points, we can determine the pattern features. This feature is spread across a pattern for each point in the sketch. we can use sketch driven patterns for holes or other feature instances. Bodies to Pattern. For multibody parts, select a separate body to create a sketch driven pattern. To create a sketch driven pattern: Open a sketch on the face. Create a seed feature on the model. Click Point or Tools, Sketch Entity, Point and add multiple sketch points to represent a pattern that we want to create, based on the seed feature. Clo…

Move on Solidworks

Learning solidworks: Move Move or Copy entities by selecting from and to points or by using X and Y destination coordinates Menu to move the sketch which we have previously made. 1. In Edit Sketch mode: - Click Move Entities (Sketch toolbar) -Tools, Sketch Tools, Move 2. In the PropertyManager, under Entities to Move - Select sketch entities for Sketch item or annotations - Select Keep relations to maintain its position among the entities that do not want to be moved. 3.Under Parameters: - Select From / To, click Start point to set a Base point, and then drag to position the sketch entities. -or Select X / Y and set values for Delta X and Delta Y to position the sketch entities. 4. Click Repeat to again change the position of sketch entities 5.Klik Below I have put in a simple application, please

Click Solidworks Insert Cut Extrude

How can I extrude cut or do a cut with a surface a specific feature. If you take a look at the picture below. I have the extrusion of the round piston and that is cut a specific way. Now I have an extrusion inside the walls of the piston and that is cut the same way but at an offset from the piston. 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 .

Convert Entities SolidWorks tutorial

Convert Entities are used to create curves in a sketch by projecting a rib (edge) / side (face) / curve / contour sketch / series of ribs (edge) / series sketch curve into the sketch field. You can create one or more curves in a sketch by projecting an edge, loop, face, curve, or external sketch contour, set of edges, or set of sketch curves onto the sketch plane. Convert Entities tool will be used as a sketch for the path in Swept Cut feature. 1. Open SolidWorks, File> New> part 2. We create a sketch with a plane Front 3. Exit Sketch, click the Features tab> select the features Extruded Boss / Base, to end the Condition = Mid Plane, depth = 20mm. Click OK. 4. Sweep feature requires two sketch, one as Path and only as a Profile. We will make a sketch for the path first. Create a sketch with a plane in the Front. We will select all the curves at the top (press the Ctrl key to select more than one object). 5. Press the Convert Entities, all objects that have been previously sel…

Make a Swept Boss Base Solidworks

SolidWorks tutorial we will learn how to make a sweep with SolidWorks and in this tutorial you will learn how to use the following functions: 2D sketch, create a 2D circle, making Swept Boss / Base. The steps to create features swept boss / base Open new part Click the sketch, click the line and select right plane Create a sketch like this Then create a new plane is the front plane On the front plane that create a polygon sketch click ok Click on the features and click swept boss / base Sweep and a box will appear on top of the box select the polygon whereas the bottom box select the first sketch click Ok Sweep creates a base, boss, cut, or surface by moving a profile (section) along a path, according to these rules: The profile must be closed for a base or boss sweep feature; the profile may be open or closed for a surface sweep feature. The guide curve must be coincident with the profile or with a point in the profile sketch. …

Create Revolved Boss Bases Solidworks

SolidWorks modeling makes it very easy and most renowned companies from various sectors (Automotive, Aerospace, Construction, manufacturing, etc.) to use as the primary modeling tool. SolidWorks is a tutorial that shows how to use SoildWorks Revolved Boss / Base features with examples of the steps in the form of images. Revolve Boss / Base is one of the main features such as Extrude boss / base, which helps to add material by means of revolving. This function helps to create a symmetrical spherical model, the only thing is that the first half of a symmetrical sketch you want to spin and also draw the axis. Exit the sketch and click on the tab feature and select Revolve Boss / Base. Specify axis and the part that will rotate and click the OK button. New -> Select plane and sketch -> half pictures and specify the dimensions of symmetrical parts -> Exit sketch -> Click on Features -> Revolve Boss / Base -> Define axes and other settings as your requirement -> Ok. To …

Create a 2D sketch drawing in Solidworks

Create a 2D sketch drawing . We recommend that you understand the correct commands or toolbar function of this sketch more depth. Because of the existing toolbar from this sketch has a function and a different orientation . with 2D sketches first. Solidwork by default has provided three pieces of plane , namely Top, Front and right plane . This plane will be used to place / paste from the 2D sketch drawing that will be created to form a 3-dimensional . You can create drawing geometry using 2D sketched geometry only, without reference to existing models or assemblies. This sketched geometry can be controlled by relations (collinear, parallel, tangent, and so on), as well as parametric dimensions. Sketch tools and sketch relations work the same way in a drawing document as they do in a part or assembly document. The only difference is that instead of sketching on model planes or faces, you sketch on the drawing sheet or in an active view. When you drag a sketch point in a drawing, it …

Create planes SOLIDWORKS

When you create planes in part a SOLIDWORKS Reference Plane at an angle, You can use planes to sketch, to create a section view of a model, for a neutral plane in a draft feature, and so on. typically you would select a face or plane for the reference angle, then select an edge or axis on which to rotate about. But this may not be in the position you want it to be and then forces you to make another reference plane for the offset. Click Plane (Reference Geometry toolbar) or Insert > Reference Geometry > Plane . In the PropertyManager, select an entity for First Reference . The software creates the most likely plane based on the entity you select. You can select options under First Reference, such as Parallel, Perpendicular, and so forth to modify the plane. To clear references, right-click the item in First Reference and click Delete. Select a Second Reference and Third Reference as necessary to define the plane. The Message box reports the status …

Creating Reference Axes SOLIDWORKS

Today I will show you how the Creating Reference Axes. When you need to generate a SOLIDWORKS Reference Plane at an angle, typically you would select a face or plane for the reference angle, then select an edge or axis on which to rotate about. But this may not be in the position you want it to be and then forces you to make another reference plane for the offset. If you need to create a Reference Plane at a certain angle somewhere out in space, create a simple sketch with a line as the reference and then generate your Reference Plane. You can create a reference axis, also called a construction axis. To create a reference axis: Click Axis Tool_Axis_Reference_Geometry.gif on the Reference Geometry toolbar, or click Insert > Reference Geometry > Axis. Select the axis type in the Axis PropertyManager, then select the required entities for that type. Verify that the items listed in Reference Entities select_edge_faces_vertex.png correspond to your selections. C…
