To create a loft using a split line:

To create a loft using a split line:
1. Use a split line to create a non-planar profile on a model face.
2. Set up the planes needed for the profile sketches. Use existing planes, or create new planes. The planes do not have to be parallel.
3. Sketch the profiles.
4. Click one of the following:
5. Under Profile, do the following:
• Select the Profiles to loft in the graphics area.
In the graphics area, a shaded preview connecting the selected entities appears.
• Click Move Up or Move Down to reorder the profiles.
6. To control tangency, click Start/End Tangency.
7. Under Guide Curves select guide curves from the graphics area, if needed.
When using guide curves, you can also control side tangency by selecting All Faces under Guide tangency
• Loft on the Features toolbar or Insert, Boss, Loft
• Insert, Cut, Loft
• Lofted Surface on the Surfaces toolbar or Insert, Surface, Loft
The planar profile is a circle created
on plane 4.
The face created by the split line is
projected onto a non-planar face.
8. Under Options, select Maintain tangency, Advanced smoothing, or Close loft, if needed.
• You can also clear the Show preview check box to display only the profiles and the path.
• Merge result is the default value. Clear the check box if you do not want to merge all the loft
9. To create a loft with thin walls, click Thin Feature.
10. Click OK .

Solidworks Sheet Metal Tab

A Tab feature adds a tab to the sheet metal part. The depth of a Tab feature is automatically set to the thickness of the sheet metal part. The direction of the depth automatically coincides with the sheet metal part to prevent a disjoint body.
Here are some additional items to note about a Tab:
To create a Tab feature in a sheet metal part:
Sketched Bend
You can add bend lines to the sheet metal part while the part is in its folded state with a sketched bend feature. This
allows you to dimension the bend line to other folded-up geometry.
Some items to note about a sketched bend feature:
• Only lines are allowed in the sketch. You can add more than one line per sketch.
• The bend line does not have to be the exact length of the faces you are bending.
A Sketched Bend feature is commonly used with a Tab feature to bend the tab.
• The sketch can be a single closed, multiple closed, or
multiple-enclosed profile. The illustration shows a single
tab feature that adds two tabs to the sheet metal part.
• The sketch must be on a plane or planar face that is
perpendicular to the direction of thickness of the sheet
metal part.
• You can edit the sketch, but you cannot edit the definition.
This is because the depth, direction, and other parameters
are set to match the parameters of the sheet metal part.
1. Create a sketch on a plane or planar face that meets the
above requirements.
2. Click Base-Flange/Tab on the Sheet Metal toolbar, or
click Insert, Sheet Metal, Tab.
The tab is added to the sheet metal part. The tab's depth and
direction are automatically set to match the parameters of
the Base Flange feature.

Advantages and limitations of the 3D sketch

The obvious advantage of the 3D placement sketch is that it can put a set of holes on any set of
solid faces, regardless of whether they are at different levels, are non-parallel, or are even non-planar.
This function offers multiple holes, multiple faces, and multiple directions. In situations where
that is what you need, nothing else will do.
A limitation of the 3D sketch is that it can be fairly cumbersome. Dimensions work very differently
in 3D sketches compared to 2D sketches. For example, to create and place a hole in a specific position
on a cylinder, you need to follow these steps:
1. Begin with a circle with a diameter of one inch, drawn on the Top plane and
extruded using the Mid-plane option one inch.
2. Start the Hole Wizard without any pre-selection, either through the Features toolbar
or by choosing Insert ➪ Features ➪ Hole ➪ Wizard.
3. Set the interface to use an ANSI inch, one-quarter-inch, and counterbored hole for a
socket head cap screw. Use a Normal fit and Through All for the End Condition, with a
.100-inch head clearance (in the Options panel) and no custom sizing changes. These
settings are shown in Figure 17.4.
4. Click the Positions tab, which is located at the top of the PropertyManager window.
The interface asks you to select a face where you would like to put the holes or to select
the 3D sketch option. In this case, click the 3D Sketch button.

SolidWorks works in education

One cannot imagine the modern technical world without 3D CAD. Whether your profession is in the mechanical, electrical, or industrial design fields, or in the automotive industry, 3D CAD is THE tool used by designers and engineers today.
SolidWorks is the most widely used 3D CAD design software in Benelux. Thanks to its unique combina-tion of features, its ease-of-use, its wide applicability, and its excellent support. In the software’s annual improvements, more and more customer requests are implemented, which leads to an annual increase in functionality, as well as optimization of functions al-ready available in the software.
A great number and wide variety of educational insti-tutions – ranging from technical vocational training schools to universities, including Delft en Twente, among others – have already chosen SolidWorks. Why?
For a teacher or instructor, SolidWorks provides user-friendly software that pupils and students find easy to learn and use. SolidWorks benefits all train-ing programs, including those designed to solve problems as well as those designed to achieve com-petence. Tutorials are available for every level of training, beginning with a series of tutorials for tech-nical vocational education that leads students through the software step-by-step. At higher levels involving complex design and engineering, such as double curved planes, more advanced tutorials are available. All tutorials are in English and free to download at
For a scholar or a student, learning to work with So-lidWorks is fun and edifying. By using SolidWorks, design technique becomes more and more visible and tangible, resulting in a more enjoyable and rea-listic way of working on an assignment. Even better, every scholar or student knows that job opportunities increase with SolidWorks because they have profi-ciency in the most widely used 3D CAD software in the Benelux on their resume. For example: at you will find a great number of available jobs and internships that require Solid-Works. These opportunities increase motivation to learn how to use So
To make the use of SolidWorks even easier, a Stu-dent Kit is available. If the school uses SolidWorks, every scholar or student can get a free download of the Student Kit. It is a complete version of Solid-Works, which is only allowed to be used for educational purposes. The data you need to download the Student Kit is available through your teacher or in-structor.
The choice to work with SolidWorks is an important issue for ICT departments because they can post-pone new hardware installation due to the fact that SolidWorks carries relatively low hardware demands. The installation and management of SolidWorks on a network is very simple, particularly with a network li-censes. And if a problem does arise, access to a qualified helpdesk will help you to get back on the right track.
When you have sufficiently learned SolidWorks, you can obtain certification by taking the Certified Solid-Works Associate (CSWA) exam. By passing this test, you will receive a certificate that attests to your profi-ciency with SolidWorks. This can be very useful when applying for a job or internship. After complet-ing this series of tutorials for VMBO and MBO, you will know enough to take the CSWA exam.
SolidWorks has committed itself to serving the needs of educational institutions and schools both now and in the future. By supporting teachers, making tutorials available, updating the software annually to the latest commercial version, and by supplying the Student Kit, SolidWorks continues its commitment to serve the educational community. The choice of Solid-Works is an investment in the future of education and ensures ongoing support and a strong foundation for scholars and students who want to have the best op-portunities after their technical training.
