I would like to model a belt that changes shape as the components in an assembly move. In the attached diagram, when the spring moves down, the arm at the right should swing out accordingly. The built-in belt feature assumes that the center of rotation of all the rotating parts is fixed in space. (p.s. I am aware of the obvious mechanical issues of this model, but I'm only interested in answers to the question asked, thanks!

I am trying to understand creating glass like appearances. Thus I wanted to start with a generic appearance and try and turn it into one of the library glass materials such as transparent glass. However, I can not seem to recreate it exactly.

So I am simulating this micro suspension system, which I have to apply force to produce a displacement X and Y direction, but the rotation produced is in the XY plane is unwanted (Z direction irrelevant). So how can I apply fixtures to make the designated portions only able to move in the X and Y directions but not rotate? (Or have edges constantly parallel to the X and Y axes). Hopefully without adding additional components to the model.

How many times do you see a great thread get trashed or hijacked for various reasons and I'll take the "Stand" and say I'm the worst for doing that.. So when I'm acting stupid tell me to trash it here, get it?? Rants - Cheers - Pet Peeves - or your Aunt Lilly, bring it.. (More then likely the dumbest thread anybody started, but I tried to keep it stupid, stupid) - The Forum Moderators rules still apply, no obscene pics, raunchy language and personal attacks, those will be reported and deleted if

SOLIDWORKS introduces every year a ton of enhancements. This year, in addition to focusing onONE and TWO, SOLIDWORKS 2018 proposes a series of BIG enhancements, that transcend the term "enhancement", being actually new products, or new environments like: SOLIDWORKS Manage, SOLIDWORKS CAM, Topology Optimization in Simulation Professional and Premium, or the new enhanced functionality for Mesh objects. What about the so called "small" enhancements, or what SOLIDWORKS calls "Delighters"?

Is it just me or do others have the same problem, we work with PDM Enterprise, and if I go to import/open anything from MY LOCAL pdm folder, I always get this style of folder preview: doesn't matter if I select, tiles, details, list etc. it always displays small icons like that.

2018 pr1 doesn't seem to include solidworks cam? The beta version had it but pr1 doesn't seem too. Don't know about pr1, I haven't downloaded it but my VAR called me yesterday to see if I'd be trying it so it'll be in SP0!

Is there a way to create surface finishes that are actually applied to the face of a 3D model for plastic molded components? I know surface finishes can be applied for rendering, but my client is trying to create 3D models that have specific finish specifications applied directly instead of relying on notes on the drawing. Brian,.. it's a good question,.. personally, I'd add a drawing view(s) which shows the textured surfaces in a color or texture image (red or pink?)..

You have to let me talk to the controller. And don't assume that it is just a matter of time before I choose the midpoint of a line. I am excited to think that SW 2018 includes some CAM functionality.

I would like to know if it possible to apply a color to my model in Solidworks. Then when importing my model in Visualize I would like that Visualize automatically apply an apparence depending on the color. My suggestion is to add all appearances inside SolidWorks.

Linking specific cells from excel I'm trying to link a value in a specific cell from an excel file partly because the equations manager in Solidworks in inadequate in its capabilities, but that is another subject for a later time. Anyway, when I hit the "Import" button and select the excel file of choice, it looks like the idea might work, but as with allot of things with Solidworks, it just isn't that easy.

I was creating a new administrative image for SW2018 SP 0.1 and one of the files in SOLIDWORKS CAM was flagged by ESET anti-virus as being a potentially unsafe application. The file in question is 'elevate.exe' in the SOLIDWORKS CAM/NCEditor/Sys folder. In looking at the Quarantine history, the file was also flagged in my PR1 admin image.

From when I first started using SWX I asked this question and have never gotten a solution. ( I am using SWX 2015 sp5) We do most of our own machining and only a small portion is on sheet metal (usually aluminum) and we typically use thicknesses on .125 and less.

So far the previous conversations I find assume that I know how to do this. I can find nothing about it in Solidworks help. As I improve my drawing borders, I would like to update the border on any drawing I edit to the latest version. How do I do that?
