Im running Solidworks 2006 sp2 and I have been using it for about a
month now to do my solid models. I am modleing a part that has an
angled hole in the top and i was not sure about how to cut it out.

Create an angled plane to the surface you want a hole, then select that
plane prior to selecting the hole wizard.

2. First-angle, Third-angle Projection Conventions

I have been reading about the projection conventions and am not sure
if I completely understand them.  I know the third-angle convention is
preferred in the US and Canada and the first-angle in Europe.  I have
also seen the descript that the object is above the screen in the
first angle convention and below the screen in the third.

Say you are shining a light through a translucent object onto a
screen.  Is the third-angle projection what you see on the screen from
the object side and the first angle projection what you see if you
stand on the opposite side of the screen from the object - or is it
the other way around?

Many thanks in advance,

4. Using "Align Angle" or "Mate Angle" in assembling

Our office uses Wildfire 2.0.

Occasionally when we assemble two items, the "Automatic" constraint
type goes to an "Align Angle" or "Mate Angle," for which we give the
degrees, instead of an offset distance. This is desirable.


..this particular constraint type does not appear whenever we want one.
It's not in the drop-down box. Even our most experienced ProE user in
the office can't figure out how to invoke that constraint type to come
up when wanted. (It would help a lot in getting min and max
articulation angles set for the assembly.)

In assembling 3 similar assemblies together, I used very similar
references -- an axis (for the rotation), two side surfaces to mate and
two top surfaces for alignment. One of the unions resulted in a "align
angle" that would rotate about the axis. The other merely aligned the
two top surfaces as "oriented."

How do I get that "align angle" to appear in the assembly???

6. disable certain hole wizard tapped hole sizes?

  What would be the best way to prevent a user from selecting certain
tapped hole sizes in the hole wizard? I would rather not actually
delete any of the tapped hole sizes but rather disable or hide certain
ones that we do not want used.

Thanks, Sam

8. Reamed holes in the hole wizard?

Hi all,

I often need to put reamed holes in the parts I am designing for dowel 
pins etc. Is there anything in the hole wizard that allows this? 

Often, I need say for a 6.0mm dowel, a 6.020 oversize reamed hole, and 
was wondering if there is a way to do this with the hole wizard, rather 
than manually doing it (so the info turns up in the drawing)?
