1. Not sure what are you seeng. Part1 is at 0,0,0. I modeled the parts so 0,0,0 will be at 0,0,0 of their respective drawings in the PDFs and dimensioned with the dimensions from the drawings so no recalculations (almost) and no wandering what is what when comparing models and drawings.
Considering a look at your master piece models, reading this from you is a great honour.
2. Doesn't fail for me with 0.18.16110, chamfer works up to 2,1 mm.ppemawm wrote: ↑Tue May 28, 2019 12:34 pm2. Please note that p1chamfer fails at 1 mm (V18.16093+17 Win)
3. You used Body placement to locate each component. Did you do this before or after creating the body, i.e. did you create in context?
5. If you want to save some time, set screw solid models can be downloaded from McMaster.com website, complete with threads and all details.
Ok, I understand why now. I almost always try to locate planes of symmetry of the assembly at the global origin irrespective of the drawings. It seems easier to mirror bodies. And, I prefer to locate each body first before starting the model so as to design in context of the assembly.
I downloaded your model again and the p1chamfer seems to be working just fine. I must have corrupted the file somehow when reviewing it.
The sketch should be normal to the helix sweep path in order to have a true spring shape, especially for large pitches.
