    I had to try the midpoint constraints because I was sure they would work;

    8461

    Works for me, if you change the size of the rectangle to hole stays centered.

    I hope not, I've been doing it that way for decades. :P

    Actually there's a more convoluted way that avoids the construction line. Make the center of the hole horizontal to the midpoint of one side...

    I wasn't able to open your file Ron but I played with it a little bit using your image to create similar geometry. I had a couple of theories, one was the lack of tangency between the two elements of...

    What happens if the path and the guide curve are each a single entity? What I'm suggesting is, as a test, make the second part of both a construction line and see if it behaves as you would expect.

    The bolts and other hardware items in the design library have all the configurations for the available sizes already created. The files for these parts can get quite large depending on how many...

    Nope. :D You can ignore a lot of what SWx brings and create dumb(er) solids but I don't see any reason to do that. I like being able to create similar parts editing a few dimensions instead of...

    Have you looked at weldments? With those you select the diameter and wall thickness from a list and a sketched line in your model serves as the centerline of the tube and determines its length. The...

    You can adjust the image quality (in the document's options) to minimize that but if you zoom in close it will always be there. SWx defaults to a higher performance setting which is also lower...

    Adding to the above -- I looked at v.2018 and it is the same as the older versions. My weldments folders look like this;

    Each profile size needs its own separate file unless something has changed in versions newer than 2016. The VR3 website has available for download almost every size you'll need for a steel tube...

    Looks good Ron. One thing I see is the tabs on the transformer being red on the outside face. You could make those separate bodies in the model so they could be silver/gray on all sides. Or you could...

    I wish I had seen this while I was still at the shop. But just looking at it I don't see why it's not a straight forward fillet. You should be able to select the intersecting line and create the...
