I was looking at buying a copy of this book through Amazon and have a few questions. Given that this book was released on March 11th 2013 would it still be considered the "Bible" so to speak for those who are learning SolidWorks? I couldn't find any information pertaining to a revised edition ever being released of this book.

This is less a Solidworks use comment than it is advice I would like to share from my 40 years in manufacturing. In my years in producing precision sheet metal I had encountered a vast number of tools that I had no idea were available. Wilson Tool is one of the premier tooling manufacturers for turret tooling among others.

Not really a SW post but a story and maybe a life lesson that I wanted to share..... Please do not LIKE this post but reply with a comment if you or someone you know went through something like this. It’s a rather long read of 1700+ words, so you have been warned.

A client of mine is after a new laptop to run Solidworks 2016. Their current laptop is using a nVidia 610m 2gb and showing it's age. Is anyone using a ProBook 470 G4 or similar who can comment on how well Solidworks runs on a Radeon R7 M340 2gb? Looks like a good machine and I'm not sure I can recommend anything much more expensive since they currently getting by on a 5/6 year old Asus.

Primary value On each line draw there are the primary values, and I am trying to put by default this configuration and not all these configurations. Because I make families of parts and I must be able to modify my excel one part and not all the same.

I'm trying to convince my company to upgrade our 2013 version of Solidworks to 2017 (or possibly 2018 if we wait a few months). I've used 2017 at my last job, so it really sucks using 2013 (I recently switched jobs). We only use the basic version of solidworks (parts, large assemblies, drawings), no circuits, fea, routing, etc.) I believe we have 13 seats of 2013, but we would probably only need 4-5 permanent seats and 1-2 floating seats

I need to overlay two parts to see if their geometries match. Is there an easy way to do this using document compare? Also, is there an easy way to edit one part to get it to match the other? For example, if I have a square plate with a bunch of holes and the part I created doesn't match exactly.

I was given a tip today by one of our User Group Leaders, Betty Baker, that I'm ashamed that I didn't know. It was a simple tip that involved the F9 and F10 keys. I was never aware that using the F9 key would toggle on and off the feature manager design tree and F10 would toggle on and all toolbars and of course F11 to make it full screen.

My task is to create a SolidWorks model that shows four (4) cameras at certain pitch and roll angles with the horizontal for visual purposes only. The cameras scan for defect and as you can see in the model, if the test material has a defect on one of its sides, the top left or top right camera won't be able to pick it up. This is the blind zone.

After upgrading from 2016 SP4 to 2017 SP2 users are not able to render using photoview 360. I read other fourms that stated to upgrade to the newest service pack and bonjour was causing the issue. I tired updating to the newest release of 2017 SP3, but did not have any luck and I checked and made sure Bonjour was installed and the service was running. The majority of our systems are Windows 7 x64 and a hand few of Win 10.

I have heard discussion lately about how the measure tool still does not satisfy some requirements for our users. I would like to start a specific discussion so that we (Product Definition) can better understand what works well with it, what needs improvement, or perhaps we should throw out the entire thing and start over etc. Make distinctions between function (measure mass properties, area etc.) verses and GUI and behaviors (this should pop up here and this should look like...) thanks in
