I'm trying to use Feature Works to recognize features on either a STEP or IGES File, and I've enabled the Feature Works add in, and the selection isn't grayed out, but when I select Recognize feature, or Options, nothing is happening. Am I missing something easy? ,solidworks-2016

I have a simple, single revolve part I am trying to import into ANSYS for a CFD simulation. The geometry is revolved 1 degree midplane. I've attached a picture of the sketch section. I can create the geometry in Solidworks and everything looks correct.

Step Import I find it totally frustrating when after paying 5K plus and subscription my $80 for 2 years Fusion360 no up front just the sub...( That's about 3k for Solidworks) can open large .step files and Solidworks just cannot seem to. Fusion opens it in about 90 seconds ...Solidworks "Parsing file, pass 1" 30 mins and counting.

I'm having trouble exporting files to STEPs. SW doesn't ask me if I want to show suppressed or hidden components / bodies, but my colleague's computer does. (see the extra handle - Left = STEP, Right = SW Model)

We create step files to send to suppliers. Recently, one of our step files exported without the drafts included. We discovered this while reviewing the tool design. On this particular part, we do not get an accurate step file.

I have this DWG that I want to import and wrap around a base but every time I try importing and selecting and scaling my Solidworks freezes. I suspect it's due to the number of entities in the DWG. Is there some way to simplify or otherwise improve performance for this particular model so that I can carry on?

Is there a way to change the filename that is exported from SW to AutoCad. The default is 00_filename.dwg...01_filename.dwg...02_filename.dwg...etc. I would like to change the first 00 to 01 to reflect the sheet number in the SW drawing.

I noticed that there are macros for exporting reference geometry points into a excel file for x, y, and z. "Create Data Table.swp" The issue I am having is that it exports the file per the default coordinate system of solidworks instead of the new coordinate system that I have placed in that file. Would one have to save the file out as a STP file with the new reference points inserted in the STP file and rerun this macro or is there an option for selecting the new coordinate system that can be

I have Solidworks 2018, when I open a .stp file from someone, everything comes in, in a "fixed" relationship. Right clicking the main assembly name will allow me to "Float" that particular component, however, all the other components are still "fixed" (f) and right clicking these individual components does not show the option for "Float". 1).

Is there a setting for the default "appearance" of an imported body? Recently, when I download STEP files and import them into SolidWorks 2015, they come in with a default appearance - gold. When my colleague imports the same file, it comes in with no appearances.

There is an old CAD problem related to digitizing existing objects, and I don’t know if Solidworks has solved it. The simple question is do we know of a tool where a point cloud can be converted into smart (parametric) 3D objects in CAD? Here is an example scenario:

I am trying to export all data from my solidworks part document onto an Excel file. I am able to easily generate the basic lengths and widths but I also need for the tolerances to be there. Is there any way I can auto populate the excel file with both? I have been doing research online but have only found manual input for doing the opposite of what I am trying to do.

I have a design table that has inputs that effect a dwg and I have an stl that I would like to avoid having to consistently export. Is there any way to link the dwg to the stl so that I can avoid doing this? Jive Software Version: 2016.3.9.0, revision: 20171215204634.b96715f.release_2016.3.9
