How do I get part selections in assemblies to show in the feature tree when edges of parts selected? If I pick a surface of a part it highlights in the tree, if an edge of a part picked it does not. This is extremely frustrating, as I have to keep zooming in to small parts to pick a surface show the part will show in the tree. I know the edge is selecting the part, as I can be opened, suppressed, etc., but will not show in the tree.

I have investigated using grid systems but it just doesn't seem to be designed for the architectural industry. The company that I work for does a lot of architectural feature work such as stairs, awnings, canopies and lobbies. We need to follow a lot of architectural details and use the grid system setup by the project. We do most of our modeling fairly closely following the Skeleton Sketch Part Method for Large Assemblies.

Bad habits. Many of us are likely guilty of leaving parts checked out for long periods of time. I had the unfortunate experience of a computer crash and losing data for parts that I failed to check in.

I have several files that have been saved that will not open back up. The dialog box stated it is unable to locate the file and asks to search for it or suppress the item or the all parts. I have come across several of these issues I am not certain if it ties into another issue.

I'm concerned about data backups for our PDM server. I'm less inclined to trust the networking team to backup our data nightly and be able to restore it in a timely manner. I'm asking what lessons learned and best practices have been developed and shared in the community? What software is needed?

I have a complex part, but this example should suffice. Imagine you want to fit a round peg in a square hole, by deforming the square hole to be round. The easiest thing to do would be to insert a cylinder into the square hole and deform it by radially expanding to a specified distance using the cylinder as the tool.

Id like to know if there is a way to focus on an area of the model after running a simulation, in order to get numerical differences between designs at that specific area. I had a couple issues with welds cracking (Seen circled in blue in the picture), and I think removing the support (Seen in orange), will relieve some stress in the weld and transfer else where. Can someone recommend how I go about finding numerical stresses in particular areas, like where the weld goes?

We get models from a customer that are really bad. They almost always come in as surfaces with tons of errors. The latest has 67 faulty faces and 1513 gaps between faces. I've tried repairing faces and it fails miserably after many minutes of just trying a single face.

I would expect that if I drag-and-dropped a selected material over another that Visualize would offer a contextual dialog to replace the old material with the new. Or, if I right-click a material, possibly a menu item that offers to replace with another.
