# How do you make something pointy in Solidworks?

## How do you make something pointy in Solidworks?

To create a virtual sharp:

1. In an open sketch, hold down Ctrl and select two sketch entities.
2. Click Point. (Sketch toolbar) or click Tools > Sketch Entities > Point. A virtual sharp appears at the point where the sketch entities would intersect.

What does a virtual sharp represent?

Sometimes you want a point in a sketch that represents the location of 2 lines intersecting, even though they don’t actually share a point. These points can be created and are called virtual sharps in SOLIDWORKS.

### What is theoretical sharp corner?

Theoretical Sharp Corner. TSC= tangent point where two angled lines meet that typically have a radius connecting the lines. TSC was used on engineering and shop drawings prior to ANSI Y14.5 that implies all linear dimensions of this type are taken from the TSC not the end points of the filleted lines.

How do you hide a point in SolidWorks drawing?

Click one of the following:

1. Hide/Show Items > View Points.
2. View Points (View toolbar)
3. View > Hide/Show > Points.

#### How do you find the point of intersection in SolidWorks?

In the dimension tool, right-click the sketch entity or model geometry, and click Find Intersection. Select the model geometry or sketch entity that intersects your original selection.

What does TSC mean on an engineering drawing?

## What does TSC mean on a drawing?

Theoretical Sharp Corner
TSC = Theoretical Sharp Corner.

What does TSC mean on a blueprint?

TSC = Theoretical Sharp Corner. It is actually handy if people call this out when that is how they really measure it.

### What is a virtual sharp in Onshape?

Virtual sharp. Create a virtual sharp associated with two linear edges. Virtual sharps are fully associated with the geometry and update appropriately with changes to the geometry. Click . Select first linear edge.

How does a virtual sharp work in SolidWorks?

A virtual sharp creates a sketch point at the virtual intersection point of two sketch entities. Dimensions and relations to the virtual intersection point are retained even if the actual intersection no longer exists, such as when a corner is removed by a fillet or chamfer.

#### How do you create sharps in 3D sketch?

You can add dimensions and relations to virtual sharps in 3D sketches. In an open sketch, hold down Ctrl and select two sketch entities. Click Point (Sketch toolbar) or click Tools > Sketch Entities > Point.

How do you create an intersection in SolidWorks?

Here’s how it works: 1) with the Smart Dimension tool already active, you right-click on one of the desired entities and 2) select “Find Intersection” from the menu. Then 3) click the other entity that creates the intersection.

## How to create virtual sharps in your dimensioning?

Here’s how it works: 1) with the Smart Dimension tool already active, you right-click on one of the desired entities and 2) select “Find Intersection” from the menu. Then 3) click the other entity that creates the intersection. The first dimension line is now attached to that virtual sharp.
