SOLIDWORKS Tutorial 01: How to Sketch a SOLIDWORKS Line using Line Command

How to Sketch a SOLIDWORKS Line using Line Command This article will explain you "How to use Line tool" to sketch a line in SOLIDWORKS. First we will start with the little description of Line Tool in SOLIDWORKS and why we need to learn this Line tool.

A line (or specifically straight line) is a command in SOLIDWORKS which draws a line with specific length and angle with reference to some plane, face, edge etc. Line is a basic command in SOLIDWORKS which you need to use in almost every sketch or design you will make. So, SOLIDWORKS Line is a useful command.

We have to be clear that our line command will only make straight lines. In order to make curve or arc we have to use other command tools Like Splines, Arc, Curves, Fillets etc.

Programmer is Not Responding Arduino - avrdude: stk500v2_getsync() | Solution

Hey! Welcome to SheeBot.

We know you are having some serious problem with your Arduino Mega. You are trying, again and again, to upload sketch(program) through the USB port but it is not working. Programmer is not responding in your arduino and giving some error like avrdude: stk500v2_getsync(). Now you are thinking that it will not work again. You don't want to spend a few more bucks on buying new Arduino Mega. You are feeling that you are stuck in a bad situation right now.

But SheeBot have good news for you. Yes, the good news that is you can upload your program in another way. Yes, you heard right. You can do this by using the SPI(Serial Peripheral Interface) connection instead of using a USB connection. 
First of all, we have to see what type of error we are getting. In our case it is like the error given below: Error: Programmer is Not Responding Arduino (avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout avrdude: stk500v2_getsync(): timeout communicating with programmer An error oc…
