Path dan guide curve sketch for sweep

We can make a 3d-featured sweep, using a sketch and sketch 2 alone, or with the addition of a guide curve.
To create a sweep using the path and guide curve, the steps we have to do is, Once we open the new document, create a path and the first guide curve; then make a section.
Guide curve must coincide with the profile or to a point in the sketch to make a sweep.
intermediate profiles for the sweep depends on both the path and guide curves.
The path must be a single entity ie lines, arcs, and so on
Horizontal or vertical relations can be added automatically when we we do section sketch.
These relations affect the form of intermediate sections.
Path and guidecurve may differ in length.
If the curve is longer than the guide path, as long as the path sweeps.
If the curve is shorter than the guide path, sweep the same length as the shortest guide curves.

planar surfaces

In Solidworks we can make the planar surfaces of several alternatives including a sketch of non-intersecting closed, A closed set of edges, some co-planar parting lines, curves or edges.
Planar Surface It greatly helps us in doing 3D modeling

Steps we need to do in create a planar Surface is:
Click on a Planar Surface Surfaces toolbar, or click Insert> Surface> Planar.
In PropertyManager, select a set of closed edges in the part. All edges in the set should be in the same plane, the same plane.
Click OK.

If we're going to edit the planar surfaces:
If the planar surface created from a sketch, we can edit the sketch.
If the planar surface is made of a set of closed edges, right click and select Surface> Edit Feature.
Then do the area to be edited.

Create Offset Surface and Surface Cut

To create a Surface Offset, the steps we have to do is
Click on the toolbar Surface Surface Offset, or click Insert, Surface, Offset.
In PropertyManager, select the surface or face in the graphics area for Surface or Face to Offset.
Set the value for Offset Distance.
we also can make the surface with a distance of zero distance.
Offset Direction Select Flip according to what we want.
Click OK.

To make the Cut Surface
At SolidWorks we can cut a solid model by removing material with a surface or plane. With parts of multibody,
we can choose to keep the body.
To cut a solid body with a surface or plane:
Click Cut With Surface Features on the toolbar, or click Insert, Cut, With Surface.
In the PropertyManager, under the Cut Surface Parameters, select the surface or plane used to cut solid body.
Check the preview. If necessary, click the Back cut to reverse the direction of cutting.
Arrow points in a solid direction to throw.

Dynamic Feature Editing

We can edit the dynamic features by dragging the sketch entities, either with or without opening sketch itself.
entities that can not be moved or resized if they are limited by the dimensions or relationships.
To edit a dynamic sketch without opening sketch:
Instant3D click on the toolbar feature.
Click on features for editing.
Features highlighted in the graphics area.
all the sketches used in the highlighted feature.
In the graphics area, click the feature to display the pull handle.
Use the drag handle to drag the sketch entities are required.
When you are in accordance with the features, click an empty area of ​​the document window or press Esc to delete the selected sketch entity.

set the image display quality SOLIDWORKS

On this occasion, we will try to improve the look
images that are less smooth or broken - broken.
To adjust the display image quality options:
Click on Tools, Options or right-click, select the document properties
In the Document Properties tab, select Image Quality.
Select and drag the slider low to high, and then click OK.
Higher resolution settings result in a better model results
slower but more accurate curve.
The slider controls the resolution of image quality.
Move the slider or type in the value of deviation. Setting the slider and value
deviation are coupled and inversely.
Optimize edge length that will result in higher quality
high, but more slowly.
The picture quality will increase if we move the slider to
highest setting.
This option causes a slower system performance and file size
increased but the maximum results.

Here we will discuss a bit about the toolbar, because without the Toolbar is the first step and most important, without it, we will not produce a solid design, create sketches, drawings or sketches, such as
line, square, circle, and other tools that facilitate the construction of 2D, such as spline, extending symmetry entity.
Like other programs, in SolidWorks., To make the toolbar appear, you can right-click somewhere in the frame above,
and will display the Options window, or we can also via the Tools-Customize.
Sheet Metal, Sketch, Reference Geometry, Operations and Surfaces.

To display the toolbar in SolidWorks:
Right-click on the border of the window and select the toolbar name.
Click Tools> Customize.
On the Toolbars tab, select the toolbar to display.

Mass Properties

Mass Properties owned Solidworks is a means to help
we determine what materials are used, the product weight, volume of product
which we design.
Mass Properties displays the properties of the mass of the part or assembly model.
We can assign values ​​for the mass and center of gravity
to calculate the value.
This is useful when we create a simplified representation
of a component, and want to assign the correct mass and center
gravity for the model.
A tri-color 3D display triads reference at the point of origin. triad
Another section displays the centroid or the assembly together with
mass properties and the properties section.

The step that we must do to display the mass
properties are
Select the item (component or solid bodies) to be evaluated. otherwise
there is a component or a selected solid bodies, mass properties for
assembly of all or part of multibody reported.
Click the Mass Properties (Tools toolbar) or Tools, Mass Properties
we can evaluate different entities without closing the box
Mass Properties dialog. Delete option, then select the entity, and
click Recalculate.

The results of calculations are displayed in the Properties dialog Mass
box, and the main axis and the center of mass is shown graphically
on the model.
We can type a value for the density.
we can also enter values ​​using unit density.
For example, if the parts that we make use grams and millimeters, we can replace the value of density using the pounds
and inches. Solidwork software is to convert the value to the unit when we click OK the document.

For the split line on the SolidWorks menu, we can see from the inset menu> Curve> Split line
Split Line tool includes a sketch entity, solid, surface, face, plane, or surface spline surfaces,
or curved or planar face. It divides the face of the separate selected faces to a few.
We can make line divided by Projection, Silhouette, Intersection
Projections of project sketches on the surface.
Creating a Silhouette of a split line on the cylinder.
Splits the intersection of the face with a solid cut, surface, face, plane, or spline surfaces.

When we make a line divided by the open profile sketch, the sketch must span at least two edges of the model.

Creating a split line
When we make a split line, the edge does not change that can be reused in
downstream edge of the changing features and updates.

To create a shared line projection:

Click Path Split (Curve toolbar) or Insert, Curve, Line Split.
In the PropertyManager, under the Split Type, select Projection.
In the selection, click:
A sketch for the Sketch for the Project.
Project to sketch the face to face to Split.
Single direction to project the split line in only one direction.
Click OK.
