Using SOLIDWORKS, we will use the "What's Wrong" dialog box to trouble shoot a part file. These errors will include extra sketch entities, broken references for dimensions, sketch relations, and planes. We will also troubleshoot issues with fillets. We will troubleshoot common issues in assemblies, which include wrong components being opened in the assembly, mate errors and alignment issues, broken references for in-context parts, and hole alignment issues. Design changes will also be made within the design intent of the part by editing sketches, moving and deleting faces, and adding draft. Software required: SOLIDWORKS 2016.

More from the author

Hi everyone, my name is Corey Bower, and welcome to my course SOLIDWORKS Essentials - Editing Errors and Design Changes. I am an elite application engineer at GoEngineer who is a SOLIDWORKS reseller that sales to and supports customers on the West Coast, South Central United States, and the Rocky Mountain area.

As an application engineer, I teach, support, and demonstrate SOLIDWORKS, SOLIDWORKS simulation, and many other SOLIDWORKS add-ins. In this course, we will find even with the best of planning errors occur and changes are required. We're going to learn how to troubleshoot and repair parts and assemblies.

We are also going to learn how to make design changes within the design intent of the part.

The major topics we are going to look at are using what's wrong dialog to troubleshoot common errors within parts, repair common errors in assemblies, determine the design intent of the part, and make design changes within that design intent.

By the end of this course, you will troubleshoot, navigate, and change SOLIDWORKS parts and assemblies. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with SOLIDWORKS sketching, part modeling, and assembly modeling. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn SOLIDWORKS with SOLIDWORKS Essentials - Editing Errors and Design Changes at Pluralsight.
