How do I get part selections in assemblies to show in the feature tree when edges of parts selected? If I pick a surface of a part it highlights in the tree, if an edge of a part picked it does not. This is extremely frustrating, as I have to keep zooming in to small parts to pick a surface show the part will show in the tree. I know the edge is selecting the part, as I can be opened, suppressed, etc., but will not show in the tree.

I have investigated using grid systems but it just doesn't seem to be designed for the architectural industry. The company that I work for does a lot of architectural feature work such as stairs, awnings, canopies and lobbies. We need to follow a lot of architectural details and use the grid system setup by the project. We do most of our modeling fairly closely following the Skeleton Sketch Part Method for Large Assemblies.

I have a complex part, but this example should suffice. Imagine you want to fit a round peg in a square hole, by deforming the square hole to be round. The easiest thing to do would be to insert a cylinder into the square hole and deform it by radially expanding to a specified distance using the cylinder as the tool.

We get models from a customer that are really bad. They almost always come in as surfaces with tons of errors. The latest has 67 faulty faces and 1513 gaps between faces. I've tried repairing faces and it fails miserably after many minutes of just trying a single face.

Having a little trouble on how to model this inner cut. Mainly the middle portion. The outer portion is somewhat rectangular, while the most inner portion is a revolved feature, but the middle seems a more in between or whatever. Appreciate any thoughts.

Good morning All, I'm trying to develop a simple flat pattern in SW for use as a template that the shop guys can use to lay on & trace a cutout contour on a large pipe where a smaller pipe intersects into it. I've done these many times over the years, but always by trigging and/or using a DOS-based program (which I no longer use) to get my template.

Flexible Assembly, What does that actually mean? I'm continuing my work on the tanning bed assembly and I noticed that when I left click on any of the sub-assemblies, the quick menu includes an icon that, when you hover over it, says "Make sub-assembly flexible". What exactly does that mean and where/when is it helpful?

I am trying to standardize components, making them plug and play for multiple assemblies. I want to be able to insert my common component or common assembly into my master assembly and have it automatically cut a clearance hole and/or screw holes automatically. The "common components" are being mounted to a simple plate. I don't want to have to go into the master assembly, edit the plate, and manually add extrusion cuts for each and every part that is mounted to it.

Yesterday, I updated some shared parts - when I checked an assembly that my co-worker is in charge of, on my machine I show broken mates. On his, the mates are all fine, no red x's or red down arrows. A third engineer opened the assy and it is fine on his machine. we're running workgroup PDM. I only checked in the parts, never the assy.

I have an assembly and I just created a blank part inside of that assembly (saved externally, not a virtual part) and mated it to the origin of the main assembly (and aligned axes, so it's properly fixed in space, but I did not use the Fix command). Now when I Edit that part inside the assembly, I can't reference any holes or other geometry in the other parts of the assembly or create new sketches and Convert Entities. Specifically I am trying to use the Hole Wizard and define the Hole Wizard
