I need STEP or IGES tubular files.

We are finishing up the support documentation on a couple of products and find myself needing some help. We have SolidWorks on-site, however, I don't have any experts here to use it. I need a couple of dozen of tubular parts that are drawn up with end notching and a couple of examples with holes. Also could use a couple of small assembly files. It would be greatly appreciated if any of you guys have some files laying around that we could use in our docs and web sites.

Thank you,
Cris

There are quite a few methods to model a tube assembly in Solidworks. Do you know what people usually use? For example, 3D sketch with sweeps, individual extrusions, all tubes in one part file vs. an assembly, etc?

3d sketch with sweeps. In the assembly, I need the tubes fishmouthed on the ends at the intersection points.

Try contacting Yoshi on Minibuggy.net, I know he does a lot with solidworks and BT. Plus he has a tubepro.

Oh yeah, he also own Sinister sand sports.

I run Solidworks and can probably help out. Been using SW for over 10 yrs.
