The "What's new in 2017" says that "Sketches Display in 3D PDFs" but there is no further mention of any settings that are required to make this happen. I am on Solid Works 2017 SP 2.0 and sketches do not transfer over when I publish to a 3D pdf like I need for them to do. Any thoughts?

So I'm still testing MBD... I'm trying to get sheet metal parts to work right but I'm having major issues. My 3D view keeps loosing the unfolded view and reverting to the folder view and it throws all of my created dimensions away!

Why is the text in the BOM table upper justified in each row? It is cutting off the tops of the letters. I have tried having my BOM table text in Solidworks centered and lower justified but it always comes over upper justified in the 3D pdf. Thoughts?

After upgrading to SW2018, we haven't been able to create 3D PDF files of assembly drawings that include alinked BoM table. Is anybody else having this problem? We successfully created a number of assembly documents previously, but right now, the "Publish to 3D PDF" function for Assemblies creates PDF documents that either crash Adobe Acrobat, or fail to display correctly.

Why are some of the 3D annotation dimensions black and others light blue or teal in color? I need to set them all to be black, how can I do that? Ok, I found the answer.Under System Options, Colors, Annotations, DimXpert

When trying to publish to a 3D PDF (via MBD) Solidworks simply crashes every single time. I'm on Windows 7 and on 2018 S.P-0.2

I have an assembly model with two configurations. I have an annotation BOM table in my assembly model that displays the parts list for both configurations. I have BOM balloons on my assembly model. However, when I change my assembly model from one configuration to another the numbering in the BOM balloons changes such that it no longer matches the BOM table.

Can the heading rows be placed at the bottom of the 3D PDF BOM table instead of the top so that the table grows from the bottom up instead of the top down? I didn't find a way to publish a BOM with headers at the bottom in a 3D PDF.

Does anyone know if SolidWorks MBD a part of the SolidWorks Premium Edition or it comes as a separate package? Jive Software Version: 2016.3.9.0, revision: 20171215204634.b96715f.release_2016.3.9

I'm using SW MBD the first time and tried to capture a 3D view. After using the "Auto Dimension Scheme" and the "Show Tolerance Status" I get all the dimensions I want and my part is fully defined (Green) but when I click the "Capture 3D View" I don't get the 3D thumb nail next to the Capture 3D View" button.

Anybody know if there is an available trial for MBD? I want to test it before spending money on it to be sure it is worth buying. Jive Software Version: 2016.3.9.0, revision: 20171215204634.b96715f.release_2016.3.9

My last PDF sample of theNIST container assemblyreceived a lot of great feedback so I decided to create another one. I kept the same goals in mind. I wanted to publish a clean, accurate, and visually appealing 3D PDF. The only difference is that this time I used a much larger assembly, 153 parts to be exact.

I am having trouble setting up a 3D pdf template.I can get everything to look great in the template, but when the pdf is created all the text will be shifted and different sizes. Tech support says that this is a known bug,SPR#935070 - Text alignment mismatch. Has anyone else run into this issue?

Just in case you didn’t notice,the SOLIDWORKS World 2018 agendahas gone live. 6000 engineers like yourself are gathering again at Los Angles, California in the United States from February 4 to 7, 2018 to celebrate this warm and exciting engineering family reunion. To facilitate a more cohesive learning structure, we are organizing the Model-Based Enterprise (MBE) learning path again.

My abstract for a Model Based Definition has been accept for SWW18. As I have done the last 2 years, I am reaching out to those interested in the subject for input. This years presentation won't really involve the use of the MBD addin, but is more of an information/discussion session.

When i'm trying to align the static text and custom properties , but it takes more time. I generally use the Align but i think it does not help us to align them. Is there any suggestion for arranging them ?

I'm trying to create a new format for a 3D PDF and it won't let me save it. I keep getting "Parameter is not valid". Am I missing something? Is there something I should be doing other than Save-As?

Does anyone have a MBD overview presentation that I can show to management to explain the benefits of MBD? We are investigating using MBD and I need something brief that covers the key points. Thanks!

I wish to know whether MBD is an add-in software. From you information, MDB app needs separate licence and subscription. In my view it is advisable to think about it, if it is widely used by manufacturing industries or necessary only.

Recently, some users have been asking about whether SOLIDWORKS MBD complies with the continuous feature requirements for ASME Y14.5-2009 standards. The standards specify two use cases shown in the figures below. One case involves coaxial same-sized holes, and the other involves multiple co-planar faces divided by grooves.
