We have a lot of pieces that are similar with variations in length or thickness, etc. but for each part, we call them different in the same modeling file by using configurations and of course, once modeled, I need to make the corresponding 2D drawing (.slddrw) in the same file but different sheet for each configuration. So I tried to make a template in order to automatically call properties such as part number, material, etc. by using custom properties on the model. However it calls only the

I want my drawing configuration to be linked with my part configuration so that when I change the part configuration, the drawing updates. Are you planing to save out the different drawings in the different configurations?

Does anyone knows how to setup the “Hole Callout” feature to automatically dimension a threaded hole? The “Hole Callout” in my computer can automatically dimension all details of Counter bores and Countersinks, but not work well for threaded holes. It only shows depth of a hole for a threaded hole.

I am using Solidworks Premium 2016 and having issues with it being very slow when creating drawings. When typing notes, there is a long lag time between when I type and when it is displayed on the drawing. It is also slow moving views and creating dimensions. I have even removed and reinstalled with no luck.

I am trying to add a couple of holes to a hole table, but they are not getting picked up. This is a milled part, and the full diameter is not inside the boundary of the part. They are 2mm diameter dowel features, the same as the ones marked 'B'. Any ideas?

I am having an issue with SW2016 when I try to print a drawing with correct scaling, such that it doesn't look zoomed in and cut out half the drawing. This issue also happens when I print to PDF. I tried going into print settings, but when i click on "scale to fit" and click OK, Solidworks crashes. It is doing this to drawings that I previously printed with no problem.

Hello! I cannot seem to figure out how to make the advanced hole wizard cut that programs a rounded bottom. Attached is a part that is exactly what I want to know how to do, but it is subtracted, and I do not think I have the will-power to make so many spheres and cut them out of the part. Plus, you cannot revolve combine features.

When placing a border box around text with a leader you get a nice box with the leader attached to the box. However if you add a jog to the leader the leader tail moves inside the text box? What am I doing wrong?

Is there a way to overlay a drawing view with dashed lines on top of another drawing? I am working on some part drawings where the part is machined from a pre-existing part and it would be nice to show the difference overlaid on top of the new view. I know you can do something similar with alternate position views in assembly drawings.
