I’ve just bought a dell xps13, and I been experiencing lag issues in solidworks (student edition 2016/2017) such as doing simple tasks such as opening a new part, sketching lines, selecting planes, etc I know my computer should be able to do those basic tasks since I have another laptop with the same specs, and it ran smoothed up to 30 parts. I tried reinstalling, modifying (going to programs, solidworks, modify, repair & update), tried solidworks 2016 and 2017), and factory resetting.

I've seen many models that SW is capable of doing but if it there is some types of models (non-organic) that it cannot handle? Is there filleting issues in complex models like what we experience in Rhino?

I want to save library feature parts in a Dropbox folder so that I can access them from different workstations at different work locations. If I do this, the feature doesn't appear in the selection list, e.g. weldment profiles.

I am working with high strength steel grade S700MC and I would like to know if somebody here work with it and which parameters you use in SW for it. I think the K factor should be between 0.4 and 0.5 but difficult to have something accurate with our trial a 0.05 change a lot in fact. Or press brake software use the same rule for unfold S355 and S700MC for me that is wrong but I need your help for find out.

I have a pipe that comes out of a head perpendicular to the header, a basic T configuration. I am trying to model the weld for that saddle joint. It requires that the end of the pipe have a 45 degree bevel all the way around, starting with the inside face of the pipe and opening toward the outside face of the pipe. I have tried all manner of swept cuts and just can't seem to figure it out.

hi fellas, I want to make a barrel cam just like the video I am gonna upload but I can't, I've tried so much but every time there is a problem in it. Mahdi,.. I played with doing it and typically use surfaces as paths, in this case, I offset a face from the groove for the center and a point on the cam for the mate.

I have this in assemble but one part isn't a "solid" and I really need to get the outline of this shape transferred to the other piece so I can laser cut it. Tell me what I'm doing wrong or a method on getting there. I have a good many more parts to make like this so figuring out how to get this done is important.

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

Multiple Base Flanges I am creating a moment frame that requires stiffener plates, as shown in photo. I would normally create beams and column as a weldment and insert that into an assembly so I could then insert the stiffener plates as parts and mate them into place.

When working in an assembly, is there any way to select a part or sub-assembly in the graphics window? Currently you select a face on a component which highlights it in the browser, then you must go to the browser and select the part to launch or edit. A similar action is required for sub-assemblies (I am aware of the RMB select for sub-assemblies, but again you must go to the browser to launch.)

If you're going to need it just one time, then create a cut out in the area. Then add a flange will full face fillet. If you're simply modelling it yea, but if you send that out to the shop floor you may not be the favourite of the day though

Using Solidworks 2016, in a drawing, is there a way to add a bolt hole pattern centerline and the corresponding circular centermarks similar to the attached file? I've attached an image I made using an old Solid Edge version which has a direct command icon for doing that.

I wouldn't think you need to dimension the molds because the people at the shop can just look at the drawings for the parts. I would think you only need an assembly drawing to see how all the molds fit together. Also if this is true what do I do if it's a one piece mold. Can you have a one piece assembly?

I am in the process of creating a new Vault. I've been contemplating setting every state that we currently use into a separate or miniature workflow, and using workflow transitions. I would be using conditions to restrict certain files from entering work flows (states) they do not need to pass through.

I'm trying to figure out how to automate a process and need some assistance. There's an assembly where a macro inserts four of the same component and they have the next instance IDs.

Just a couple of days ago I noticed that when I tried to add a relation within a sketch it wasn't popping up the options to chose the relation that I wanted. I have been using Solidworks 2014 with this company for the last 9 months and am just having this issue all of a sudden. No one else seems to be having this issue.
