comp.cad.solidworks - SolidWorks
Solidworks 2007 SP5 Is it possible to subtract one solid from another in the same way that you can combine them? ie make 2 seperate solids and then subtract one from the other? The reason I ask is that I am having problem creating a fillet after extracting a solid feature. In Catia the trick was to put the fillet on the extracted or subtracted solid first, this of course means that you must be able to edit the extraction solid before subtracting it from the main body.
Hi, I have a serious problem and perhaps there is somebody who can help me! First of all, sorry for my incorrect English, but I do my best! I have to copy a piece with a special irregular form! I want to do it with a CNC mill! I have 130 points of that form and want to connect those points with a fluent line that is constructed only by Circles and straight lines! Only straight lines or pieces of circles that connect the points as good as possible. I only can program the machine manually. Can I do it with Autocad or Solidworks? And if so, can you give a short explanation how it can be done? Thanks a lot! Dirk
I am attempting to plot power contours using spectreRF. I have cadence version 5.1.41.USR3, that uses wavescan for plotting. After doing a parametric sweep for a pss simulation, I choose Results- >direct plot->main form from the virtuoso simulation window. Once on the direct plot window, I choose my 'power contours' function to plot, set the 'plotting mode' to 'append' configure my boundries, and then hit plot. The problem is that it displays 9 separate smith charts, each in its own sub-window. I did had 9 steps in my parametric analysis, so that makes some sense. The problem is that I need all of them overlaid into 1 single window. Since they are 'subwindows' I cannot just go to the 'axis' menu and choose 'stips' that is diabled. I know that this can be done, because in the "Virtuoso SpectreRF Simulation Option User Guide Product Version 5.1.41" page 900, it shows all of the contours in one single window. Has anyone run into this before? I know all that is needed is 'append' to be set, but no matter what I do, it won't let the 'append' plotting mode to work. Thanks for any help.
