All my metal parts have a equation named "Thickness" that show, as seen, the thickness of the metal plate that will be used to make that part. I want to make a Custom Property Tab show that equation. Can it be done?

I'm looking for a nice, professional looking font that is single line, and stencil like, meaning the the interior profile will not fall out, similar to what I show below. I know there's multiple topics already posted on this, but I missed or didn't look hard enough if anyone already has a font like I'm looking for. Any ideas?

Iam unable to fit the SW screen in desktop.While using the F11 key only i can see the bottom where dimension information tab visible but the top is not visible at that time. Kelvin LamportNov 23, 2017 1:07 PM(in response to Arun Kizahke Kuruminiyil) Don't use the F11 function key, just double-click the top grey bar where the part/assy name resides, or use the Maximize/Restore icon at the top RH corner.

The administration at the ELEMENTARY school where I teach computer classes is insisting I teach 1st-6th to use SolidWorks. I've tried explaining that this is not for kids, that it would takemea long. long time to learn how to use it. They think its for drawing.

I see that you can try Solidworks in your web browser if you have mysolidworks account. My question is: Can you take the certification tests on your browser?

I have downloaded DS 18 - SP0 and upon installing the app starts and closes. I am not able to find anything regarding an error in the eventlog and have tried to install it multiple times. Being that this is a rebuild of my laptop I was expecting to get the activation popup being the first time, but I never get it. I would like to get the app installed as I use it to tinker around for home projects.

Like the title says, this isn't about ONE and TWO. This is about the little things. Small, minor bugs that make you wish SOLIDWORKS was a person so that you could build a time machine to go back and murder its parents. Bonus points if the problem is just intermittent enough to make you forget about it, until it happens again.

For each individual project, I have a folder name which starts like SD005. The assemblies and parts I save in this folder is manually saved with assembly numbers as SD005AS001 or parts numbers as SD005PA001, and so on. Is there a Macro which can be used when we create a new part or assembly, and when saved, SolidWorks automatically assigns the next file name (which is same as part number)? The automatic file name should have a prefix of SD005 based on the folder name.

I need some advice on what could be causing constant issues with Solidworks not responding. Over the years I have lost mountains of work and money because my computer/Solidworks decides to pack it in and stop responding at random points. I don't know what is causing it but I get it with other programs as well such as Word. This is when using my laptop and home PC and has spanned across different operating systems (Windows 7 and 10) and hardware.

Is there a way to restore the default files for Part and Assembly templates, or somewhere to download them? Mine have become corrupted and opening new parts/assemblies is now a major pain. There are actually no default templates shipped with the software or downloadable from anywhere.

How many times do you see a great thread get trashed or hijacked for various reasons and I'll take the "Stand" and say I'm the worst for doing that.. So when I'm acting stupid tell me to trash it here, get it?? Rants - Cheers - Pet Peeves - or your Aunt Lilly, bring it..

I try to post my vote for the 2018 list and the submission fails. SolidWorks needs to fix its stuff before it goes out for use, and stop bringing out new features until after SW fixes its garbage.
