I often need to select parts and sub assemblies "visually" directly from the screen and not from the feature manager. I would like to use the shift or ctrl buttons to run multiple screen selections.

I have an assembly, named ERU3, which has sub-assemblies and sub-sub-assemblies. Some of the sub-assemblies and parts are generic parts used in other assemblies, and some (those prefixed with ERU3) are specific to the ERU3 assembly. Some of the ERU3 parts have drawings.

Is there a way, especially in a large assembly, to have SolidWorks point out the location of a missing part? Meaning, what assembly is looking for the reported missing part? An example missing part message is below.

Hello SOLIDWORKS Power-Users and welcome to the 6th WPUC! This week, even though some would say that we just have fun playing with assemblies, we will actually perform research that would help SOLIDWORKS Development and the SOLIDWORKS Community:

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.

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 am trying to standardize components, making them plug and play for multiple assemblies. I want to be able to insert my common component or common assembly into my master assembly and have it automatically cut a clearance hole and/or screw holes automatically. The "common components" are being mounted to a simple plate. I don't want to have to go into the master assembly, edit the plate, and manually add extrusion cuts for each and every part that is mounted to it.

Use the advanced editor tab. Remember to zip all parts not just the top level assembly. Also check these helpful posts;

I have an assembly and I just created a blank part inside of that assembly (saved externally, not a virtual part) and mated it to the origin of the main assembly (and aligned axes, so it's properly fixed in space, but I did not use the Fix command). Now when I Edit that part inside the assembly, I can't reference any holes or other geometry in the other parts of the assembly or create new sketches and Convert Entities. Specifically I am trying to use the Hole Wizard and define the Hole Wizard

I'm supposed to do this. When I do the mate, the parts don't center and end up sitting a few inches away from each other. I pick, for example, the inner cylinder on #3 and the outer on #4. Instead of centering, they just sit separated.

This morning one of the guys asked me a couple of questions about Pack-And-Go and following the questions I found he is having "Can't save because of a corrupt file" issues with his assembly. I was seeing this yesterday and in talking in the office we learned that the other engineer here is seeing the same thing. I searched the forum but did not get any recent hits for corrupt files so I thought I would ask so I could add to someone Else's SPR if there is one open. This did not start happening

I have a bolt that has shaded cosmetic thread in it, but when transferred into an assy in order to "alter" the standard bolt to a specialized bolt, the shaded/cosmetic threads are not showing up even though I have them turned on in the properties. I have them turned on in the dwg as well and they aren't showing there either.

I've spent quite a while working on this, but now you can see what it looks like finished. There may be a few minor details to edit, but it looks finished so here it is compared with the actual pen. Thanks to everyone that helped. Now I need to get to work on my drawings for it.

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.
