SolidWorks tutorials Q&A, a quickie.

SolidWorks tutorials – quickie question & answer -how do I…

User Question: “I use the 3D sketch tool to create 2 joined triangles.  One is on the top plane, another one is on the front plane (two triangles share a line).  I want to convert them into 2 triangle surfaces.  How can I do that?”

Rosanna’s answer: “Well, you could split the shared line using the split entities tool (Tools->Sketch Tools->Split Entities). Then create 2 new sketches, use the Convert Entities tool, and basically make a copy of the geometry. On the Surface tab, use the Filled Surface tool.”
