Design bearing rail guided table? I have some experience with Autodesk but none with SolidWorks. I am applying for an internship and there is some expectation of skill involving CAD.

I recently noticed that the incorrect material had been selected for one of our bolts. I changed it via the configuration wizard, but it won't update the assy. In Inventor, you had to refresh the library items with a 'click-of-a-button' icon in the editor.

I have tried selecting/deselecting the individual parts, changing orientations, selecting "create opposite hand", etc... But haven't had any luck. The parts themselves don't required opp-hand mirrored versions.

Tracking down offending files I have a rather large assembly with a bunch of sub assemblies that I packed. No matter what I do with the file I can't seem to get it to open when I'm not connected to the network from where the pack came from.

I need to model 1/2" tape coming off of a 12" reel and going through a series or rollers. Now this doesn't sound like too big of a deal. But the tricky part is that I need to have the tape twist 90 degrees as the rollers change it's direction. What's the best way to do this?

Moving exploded view components into subassemblys Don't you love when management comes up with a new way of organizing structures to make their life easier and wants your models changed to reflect their ideas?

When I try to mate parts/assemblies to a pipe routing section I get the following message: If I check the box then the piping moves to attach to the part/assembly or if I un-check and select okay the part/assembly mates how I like. Is there a way to disable or turn this warning off?

assembly feature hole wizard holes do not appear in assembly unless propogated to part, is there a setting somewhere, or is this a bug? It's hard to say without seeing the file, but I suspect it's in the settings of the feature's Property Manager. Edit the feature to show it, check the selections near the bottom for Feature Scope, and make sure you have the correct components selected.

I want to make sure that my length distance constraint is equal to my rod length rating. Example: My stem measures 5 inches so my distance constraint would be 5 inches but if I change my stem length to 3 inches my distance changes to 3 inches too, automatically.

I have a part that is gray and black. When place it in the assembly, the black color disappears. All parts in the assembly appear in a gray color and all parts put into that assembly change to the gray color.

I have an assembly that uses a part file (this file has many configurations). I added some new configurations to the part file, but now I can't select those configurations in the assembly design table. I can't select them in the dropdown or by manually typing them. It only shows about 1/4 of the configurations in the design table.

I have two connectors that need to be distanced by their mounting hole centres. The constraints wont allow anything close to what I want. I've added axes, planes, and nothing seems to work.

How can I show (activate) an exploded configuration of a sub-assembly within a main assembly (which, in turn, will have it's own exploded configuration)? Add an exploded view to the assembly, select the sub-assembly and click the 'Reuse sub-assembly explode' button at the bottom of the dialog. You may wish/need to add a new config first.

I often have assemblies where I have created a room by extruding a floor sketch so I have 4 solid walls. Then I need to insert parts (my wall padding) on the walls.

I am dealing with large imported bodies, and they are causing all sorts of trouble. The files have been sent to our VAR and to Solidworks R&D department. I am just curious to see if anyone knows why when I save the assembly as a different name it decreases the file size. Is there a setting that is collecting a cache about the model that I can turn off?

I'm having an issue that I've never experienced before. I do most design work involving plastic injection molds, so I utilize the Mold Tools option quite frequently. I'm currently working on a project right now that is a pretty simple tool design. It will have two hydraulic side actions but they are just coring out a clearance hole.

I have modeled up an outrigger assembly for a machine I am developing. Due to the design, I require a right handed and left handed outrigger model. I have generated the right hand sided one, but now need to create a left handed version. I have mucked around with mirror the entire assembly and selecting "Opposite Hand Version" for each component, but it hasn't really turned out the way I want.

So before, I was able to select two planes on two parts and the planes would align and nothing else. Now when I do the same thing the two parts move really close together and I have to manually move then again just to make another mate. This sucks...It is taking more time to do the same thing. I have all the "extra" mate settings turned off so please don't ask about my settings.

I am having difficulty modelling an assembly that has a top-down modeling approach, but where the parts need to move after being modeled in-context. For example, I have attached a model of a simple metal box with a hinged lid. The lid and hinge are in their own subassembly.

We recently installed SolidWorks for one of our foreman to be able to visualize assemblies. He used to work with eDrawings but we ran into a few problems so we decided to install SolidWorks to correct them. Since our foreman has began with eDrawings then moved to SolidWorks, he is used to hiding components to get to what he wants to see.

I would like to have custom property "Description" from each component visible to the assembly feature tree. Is this possible and if yes - how to set this up? Find attached my present feature tree view.
