  • 1. Mate References
    Is it possible to have a mate reference for a part that isn't physically attached to the part itself? What I would like to do is have a sketch in a part that I could use to position (mate) the part into an assembly. Example: I have a plate with (2) holes in it that show up about (30) places in my top level assembly, the customer now wants a gusset plate welded to it between the (2) holes. In the gusset part itself I made a sketch of the plate with the (2) holes, my thought was making a mate reference using that sketch of the hole(s) so I could then drag the part from the feature pallette and mate it "automatically" in the assembly. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Brian Harris Cobey Inc.
  • 2. Modeling Standards Survey
    What do most people do for solid modeling Standards? Do you model to Maximum Material Condition? If you model a part that is going to be 10.00" +- .010, what is the part modeled size? If you model a hole that is to be .5000/.5005, what is the modeled size? If you model a part that has a length of 10.00 +.015/-.000, what will the modeled size be? If you model a shaft that is to be .4950/.5000, what would you model it at? If you model a shaft that is to be .5000 +-.010, what is the part modeled size? Thanks for any input. Bryan
    Huh? UnitedStatians? That brought a chuckle. :-) Over here, if your call yourself American, everyone knows you mean the US of A. If your not American, then you may be Mexican, Columbian, Canadian, ect.. I guess technically, were all from the "Americas", but I doubt you'll find anyone outside the US calling themselves "American" (And I'm sure all you non-Americans can come up with some good reasons for that! :-)). I've never heard of a Canadian describing himself as American (maybe North American), although I'll admit that I haven't met all of them. -- / Sean the Mc / "Opinions are like flatulence - everyone loves the sound of their own, but anyone else's usually just stinks !" -anonymous "Philippe Guglielmetti" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > wrote in message news:419992db$0$28013$ XXXX@XXXXX.COM ... > America is not a nation, it is a continent (or even 2). > Please respect the identity of Canadians, Mexicans and about 400 > million other Americans and call your Nation its official name : > "United States of America" or "USA" in short. > Sorry, but US citizens are only a minority of Americans.

  • 4. windows installer pops up and crashes with DXF insert/open ???
    Hi, I'm trying to use DXFs in SW 2004, but whenever I try to open one, or insert one into a part, a windows installer box comes up and just hangs there, doing nothing. I need to CTRL-ALT-DELETE it away. Anyone have an idea wassup? And how to fix? SW2004 on XP Pro. (no XP SP2)

Has most Solidworks models for direct download.

Very detailed and great for running COSMOS prior to construction.

I clicked on at least 20 assorted items and no models.  Do you have a 
specific example?

We had the McMaster boys in on 4-13-05 and they were asking about
suggestions, changes and how we used their website.  The first thing which
popped into my mind was to make their 3D models more accessible.

Instead of searching and searching down through all their items, then
entering given specifications, then showing if there was an available
models, just get me to the parts.  If something is exactly as I require,
great, they are number one on the vendor list.  If not, let me modify an
available model/solid for my requirements and I'll search for vendors later,
but I'll get my work done.

They could be a great source for part data and part dimensional

Give me your thoughts, I'm sure they are still open for suggestions and I'm
positive they don't watch this group.

I just thought it would be nice to see what everyone else thought.

1.IMPORT: McMaster Carr parts

Just had a user come to me with a problem. He stated that a pipe
fitting he had downloaded from McMaster had zero weight. I looked into
it and the part was scaled down by 25.4 in the STEP file he had
gotten. Has anybody else run into this?

There were two possible fixes. One was to import with template units
and use mm. The other was to scale the part.

One cause I thought of was that whoever created the STEP didn't write
units into the file since SW by default looks for units in STEP files.

2.Charted drawings - Models warped but flat drawing charted

Ok fellas,
    I will do my best to explain what we do and hopefully it isn't as
difficult as it seems.

We have a sidewall on a body that has a large curve to it.  The model of the
sidewall is modeled curved as that's how it fits into the weldment.  However
the sheet is cut flat and not bent but warped during manufacturing and
welded in place.  What I have then is a model of a curved sheet that really
needs a drawing showing just the flat.  The problem is I want to chart these
with other flats of the same material.  Is there a way to do this.  Cutting
just cuts a flat sheet out of 11 ga material and any other 11 ga could be
charted on this drawing.

If this isn't clear let me know and I'll try to explain better.
