Is there a way to take the data from a SolidWorks Drawing and have it automatically generate a BOM in Composer? Right now our Engineers create a BOM on a drawing, and then that BOM gets re-created in Composer. Our assembly trees use a lot of configurations and assembly blocks, so we've been generating the BOM in Composer one line at a time (which can be repetitive and time-consuming).

Trouble creating CUSTOM CAMERA VIEWS (missing menus) COMPOSER 2015 I have been using Composer (2015 SP0) for a few years without trouble and recently went to FILE>DEFAULT DOCUMENT PROPERTIES>VIEWPORTS to set a custom camera angle to be consistent with other drawings and the CUSTOM CAMERA VIEW fields are missing.

I am having a lot of difficulty using the "Set as Neutral Properties" and "Restore Neutral Properties" commands. I am working on a storyboard with a very large assembly, and I keep having to add components by importing them as .step files. Quite often these components need to be translated and rotated into their correct position. Once in the correct position, I want to set that position as the neutral position.

I am trying to generate an avi of my models exploding, but the base is being cut off everytime. I have tried setting it 300 mm above the floor level, but that does nothing. If I zoom out, as soon as I start to create the AVII the bloody thing zooms in again and cuts off the bottom of the model.

Is there a way to show older versions of the meta-data information in Composer based on the parts revisions in Solidworks EPDM? Possibly using the BOM feature. I am trying to show the "history" or changes to the Solidworks custom properties of a part in composer.

I've got a step file download from a vendor website. When I make a Solidworks file from this it cannot be used in Composer. When I try to import it into Composer I get "Error: Unable to translate file!" When I try to export it as .smg from Solidworks, Solidworks crashes immediately.

Do Composer and Solidworks have to be the same version? We upgraded our Composer to 2017 recently, and Solidworks is still on 2016. Is that a problem?

I've never had this issue with previous versions - but I just got the SolidWorks Composer 2017 sp4.1. When I open up a SolidWorks model in Composer it no longer shows parts that are "lightweight" in SolidWorks. Is there a setting somewhere so that the lightweight parts show up in Composer?

I don't know if this has been asked yet, but how does one create a broken out section in Solidworks Composer? I have tried different ways with cutting planes, but nothing works like solidworks does with a polyline type cut. Any help would be great.

Composer is not allowing me to check this box so I can see what I have imported. Why? as far as i see, you get the structure but not the Geometry.

I'm creating exploded view diagrams that will have to be available in multiple languages. The description of the callouts can be edited manually, but one actor cannot have multiple callout descriptions. I created a selection set for all of the callouts and called it "English callouts".

Suspicious.Cloud.5 virus when installing Composer Player When I installed the SPac4 update, my Symantec Endpoint Protection flagged and quarantined a suspected virus (Suspicious.Cloud.5) and told me that it was associated with the Composer Player. Anyone else experience this?

Has anyone ever had a problem with actors not fading in? I am trying to avoid deleting the actors and reinserting them to the file because I have quite a few location keys set for them.

I am wondering if anyone knows how to set the arch tooltip to always be attached to its digger image and to be able to keep the properties such as the width of the attach tool to what I set it to? Every time I go back into the collaboration tab and click on a panel, I always have to select the arc tooltipagainandagainand it also keeps detaching itself from each panel that I click on when I return to it. Then I have to select all the arc tooltips again to set the width to .15.

We use configuration in SolidWorks for all of our hardware. So, currently, in our BOMs in Composer we have to set it up to show non-configuration descriptions (Custom Properties) in one column and configuration descriptions (Configuration Properties) in a second column in order to show descriptions for all our make parts and hardware. But, having 2 columns for descriptions is very cluttered. We were told by our VAR that a work around is to copy/paste the hardware description into the correct

I've got a question about updating composer files. If you Solidworks file has an exploded view, when you open the file in composer this exploded view comes as a default view, I certainly think that is a really good feature because I can use the original exploded view from Solidworks. My problem is when I update the exploded view in Solidworks and after I want to update in composer it doesn't work, I mean composer update added parts or modifications but it doesn't update the exploded view from

With SolidWorks Composer there is now a feature "Import SolidWorks BOM". How can I automatically create a BOM in Composer now that this feature is in place?

Whenever creating illustrations with callouts the BOM-IDs that are shown are not correct compared to an other source of information that I'm using. In the "Instance Name"-meta-property of the parts, the correct position number is available. So of course, I could use that meta-property instead as callout text.
