How do i justify getting my boss to purchase a 3d space navigator. I have used them in the past and i really feel it helps. But I am not able to articulate it very well. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I am using a transient thermal modelling but I am getting negative -273C on some surfaces despite I am setting the temperature to 25C for example? what I am doing wrong? A common issue I see in transient thermal analysis is that the initial temperature is only applied to the outside faces of the model.

If you look at the attached image I was wondering if there is a way to control the size of the the virtual sharp witness lines? I would ideally like them to be about half the size they are now. Any help would be appreciated!!

Both of these methods return a non-null feature object even when the operation fails, and I haven't seen any way to ask SolidWorks if the last operation failed. Is there anything I can do other than doing detailed analysis of the sketch in advance to make sure the geometry is valid for the operation? Have you tried checking the name of that return feature?

I want to show the bristles of a brush as if they were real. I have taken photos of the side bristles and the top and applied them to the part, it renders OK, but not good enough.

I have a computer with the following features TOSHIBA satellite s55t-c5164-4k, Intel (R) Core i7-6500U, NVIDIA GeForce 930M graphics card and the main problem is that when running solidworks 2016 and now SW2017 the operation Is slow when performing a small sketch, even when working with parts in assemblies SW stops working and it closes,Also WHEN I USE RESOLUTION 4K a message appears saying that the memory is insufficient and run the SOLIDWORKS RESOURCE MANAGER but don't say's nothing about the

I'm trying to render a model. I set up a camera, but when I try to set my view orientation to it the screen rotates to the correct angle, but is zoomed out. It doesn't work any better in Two View - Vertical display, but it does work on Two View - Horizontal (first 2 screenshots).

I need to loop through all levels of a drawing BOM from top level down and find all assembly drawings associated. The goal of this is to find all assembly drawings (and possibly export them as pdfs) associated to the product in the top drawing.

I am working on a part and needed to add a spur gear. For what I needed, the teeth and everything prebuilt into the Toolbox would do, but I needed to add a custom diameter. I went into options > Hole Wizard/ Toolbox > Configure and added what I needed. Now the problem is whenever I try and launch spur gear through the toolbox, my Solidworks crashes.

I made a small addin that makes a commandmanager tab with a few tools on it, using the SwVBAddin template. I would like it if this new tab was not made the active tab every time a new part, drawing, or assembly was opened in a new SW session. How do i get it to remain on the normal first tab?

Maybe i'm not familiar with the searching on the site, but I haven;t been able to find an answer. We had someone from a local location come in and train us on PDM application, cards, workflows, etc.. One of the things mentioned was in Windows Explorer, we could hide certain files that are in certain file states.

Is there a way to "not show" the feature origin when a view is first created? Currently, I have to right mouse click and "unshow" the feature(origin) in a single drawing view to prevent the origin from showing. Need to change the default template;

I try to create an exploded assembly by using the exploded feature. This feature does its job well and the parts collapse in the proper manner. However, when I try to animate the collapse by right clicking on the exploded feature in the configurations tab, it performs the animation and gets stuck. Supposedly I am supposed to see an Animation Toolbar appear, but no extra toolbar appears.

We have downloaded SP2.0 and another engineer here has installed it. At least for him it has not solved the weird problems we've been seeing with SP1.0 (messages that a file is corrupt only to be able to open it after another attempt, other strange happenings). I have seen a few comments that SP2.0 solved other folk's problems (some in here How stable is SW 2017? ).

Does anybody know of a way to batch export multiple sheetmetal parts with multiple configurations? I have a macro to do this but I would like to send them to some kind of external calc server while I continue to work on solidworks. We DXF 1000's of pattern heavy sheetmetal parts and it takes a lot of run time. If we could line up our parts to auto DXF using configuration names externally It would save a lot of waiting.

Hi. I'm an engineering student and I have some CAD experience but I have never used Solidworks before (My university doesn't have it ) So I am thinking to purchase the student version and use this summer to learn Solidworks on my own and hopefully get the associate certification before fall so that at least I have something to prove the familiarity with Solidworks. But would three months be enough to get ready for the associate exam?

I'm doing a fatigue analysis on a wind turbine blade and need to know the stress due to lift and angular acceleration at different points as the blades rotates. Several simulations will be done with varying air flow velocities to determine the lift at different position (due to wind shear). I've applied an angular velocity to my blade, specified an air flow velocity and have then done an FEA on these results to determine stress etc....
