  • 1. Buy Space Navigator where?
    Where can I buy the $60 version of 3D Connexion's Space Navigator online and have it mailed to New Zealand? Dealers like Amazon and Novedge etc won't send outside of their designated sales territory. Others aren't set up for international sales and one who was wanted a vast amount for courier shipping. Logitech in New Zealand seemingly don't import these controllers. Thanks, briancad
  • 2. Allowable Bend Radius
    I am trying to create sheetmetal gauge tables based on thickness information provided to me by my fabricator. The SW tables include a column labeled "Allowable Bend Radius". I don't know what to put there. I wonder if anyone can help. I can contact my vendor on Monday, but it'd be nice to get some work done over the weekend. I am going to try to leave that column blank for now and see what blows-up. The SW sample files include a number of radii per line. I don't see the logic behind the numbers other than the smallest radius called out is rounded up from the material thickness. Thanks, -Martin
  • 3. Friction brake
    It's off-topic, but I wonder if anyone here has got any sound experience of using friction brakes to accurately control the torque on a small continuously driven rotor. The application is a bit like a drum brake on a car, but it runs continuously and needs to give very consistent friction levels over long periods of time, independent of rotational speed. In a way, it's a bit like a miniature dynamometer. Regards, John H
  • 4. Adjustable angled plane
    Will someone please provide me with a step by step sequence to make an angled plane? I am using Solidworks 2006, and for some reason the help file does not give me the proper sequence. If I select the top plane, then ctrl select the right plane, now I have two planes perpendicular to one another, then go insert, reference geometry, plane,and select the axis, (and the axis is displayed in yellow), used to rotate one of the planes to the angle I want, I do not get the angle option box in the design tree. Puzzled, Karen

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.
