I'm trying to source a macro that will locate the centre of mass/gravity of all components within an assembly relative to a specific point (i.e. the assembly origin) and export this information to an excel file. I realise this has been brought up on several other forums but as yet there doesn't seem to be a solution. Effectively I'm trying to incorporate the parametric capabilities of solidworks to iteratively optimise the structural configuration of a concentric shaft/bearing arrangement.

What mate is applicable here? I have used the cam follower mate which makes the follower follow the surface. but how do i make my cam follower roll? Jive Software Version: 2016.3.6.0, revision: 20170209151852.c6d8942.nomerge_2016.3.6

When I am in an assembly or a part solidworks is real jumpy and/or knotchy. When I move the model around it will disappear from the screen and/or stop for a few. If I do not give it time to catch up it will shut down. It is really bad in mate.

SW2106 Assemblies menu issue I am running SW2016 and have an issue. Periodically while working in both assemblies and parts, when I switch back to the assembly, the assembly menu won't return.

Hola, tengo un problema de visualizacion en un dibujo. Al momento de hacer una vista explosionada de un ensamblaje me encuentro con que una de las partes cambia de lugar al cambiar su estilo de visualizacion; si lo pongo "Sin lineas ocultas" se ve correctamente, pero si lo cambio a "Sobreado con aristas" el color de dicha pieza cambia de lugar. Es un problema muy molesto que tengo hace varias semanas y estaria agradecido de si alguien tiene una posible solucion.

Does anyone know how I can get back the direction arrows to evenly space out the components? It will allow me one auto-space move per set but then the arrows change direction and I cannot get them back. The components are then stuck in this position and I cannot move them in any direction.

I have problems at the time of assembly in the drawing section, results section become yellow as the color of lost / warning. why is that so? Check the sketch for the section line OR could be possible that section line is creating a zero geometry. Try moving the section line (slightly) and see if that helps.

I have an assembly with large number of holes created at the assembly level and added axis for all the holes. Now I need to send the model to my consultant in neutral format like step/iges with the axis details. I have been unsuccessful with selecting the wire frame option under Step conversion or sketches and curves under para solid option in solidworks.

I'm using SW 2017. I've created some features within an assembly. When I open up the individual part files, none of the changes are reflected. Never had this problem with previous versions of Solidworks.

I am trying to get a twist claw in 2" fittings. I found this file off GrabCAD, but it is not the right size. Is there a good way to scale entities to meet a standard 2" MPT? What would be the best course of action?

When saving an assembly that is built without parts that include multiple bodies, STP works well. However, if your assembly included parts that do have multiple bodies that are suppressed for the purpose of the assembly, you will see this question during the save process: But this must be a rhetorical question because - for me at least - has absolutely no affect on the output file.

In a YouTube video whenever new part is modeled in the assembly file, Image Quality is set to extreme right corner. What is the reason for that? It is just the users preferred setting.

I've recently run into a problem regarding mates. We have a large assembly with 10+ sub-assemblies (with hundreds of parts total as various sub-levels), all mated together and fully constrained with no mating errors, and today I opened it up to add another sub-assembly, added the 3 related mates, saved, and closed...

Is there a way to export individual part files to STEP from a SW assembly? Perhaps Task Scheduler can do this? Does this require a macro to do this?

Is there a way to lock the units of the measure tool? For example, I set them to dual (inches/mm) and as I work, they change to mm/mm. It may be when I insert a metric part into my assembly.

I work with a lot of large assemblies that contain multiple sub-assemblies. Whenever someone changes the hidden/shown state of a part from the top level assembly, it over-rides the hidden/shown state of that part in the sub-assembly (a part can be hidden in the top level, but when the sub-assembly is opened it will still be shown). The problem this sometimes presents, is that the sub-assembly loses control, so any display states that are setup in the sub-assembly no longer work correctly, which

I don't know if this is just a stupid newb problem, or something that I have to get used to, but why do I get a part that after I mate it, it ends up out in the middle of now where? Did you accidentally select a point instead of a face or edge?

I am pursuing currently a final assembly that will contain over 15,200 different configurations. Other parts in this assembly will also have close to 300-600 configurations each. I am concerned about how much RAM this might take up on my computer and how I can check this.

mating issues 2017 I've have noticed issues (on this forum) with mating issues, in regards to being over-defined, etc. However, I am experiencing an issue with a basic "coincident" mating relationship, where when I originally select the mating features, the mates are fine.

I've now made all of the components for my engines waterpump and was going about creating the assembly as one would in the real environment. I didn't get far before I got stumped on trying to mate the main shaft inside the housing so that it would be fully defined. I just can't seem to find enough reference points that would still leave it free to spin (rotate). The main body is the fixed component, I then mated the bearing seal, and then the bearing inside the main body, all fully defined.
