How to make single parts from sections?

By joris on 18 Mar 20:07 3 answers 647 views 2 comments

Hello,

I'm using the student version from Solidworks.

I'm modeling a boat hull for my hobby. It will be a radio controlled boat.
First i've made a suface model and then I used 'replace face' to make a solid body.
Then I found a tutorial here to make sections for the beams and that worked.

Now I want to make single parts from all the sections. So I've made sketches on the sections using 'convert entities' but when I copy those sketches and paste them in a new part, I can't give the sketch dimensions.
If I give one dimension to any line, the other lines wil move.

Does anyone have a tutorial to make those parts?

    Do you have the Direct Editing option available? If yes, select the split command.

    Don't recreate them. In the feature manager on the left, there is a solid bodies folder. Right click on each body and select insert into new part. This will create a dumb solid that is still linked to the dimensions in the original part.
