I find that the most efficient way to switch back and fourth between all the files I am working on is to use the 'browse open files' that is located in the tool bar under the "open" folder. I know that I can hit 'r' and bring up the 'browse recent documents' window, but that is usually populated with a bunch of stuff that I don't want to use and not the stuff that I am using (aka the files I have open). I would really like a quick shortcut to bring up the 'browse open documents' window, and I

I am trying to model some wire. 4 conductors from a connector to another connector and twisted along the way. This means that the last 1cm or so from the connector it has to "untwist" and become linear so that it mates into a 1x4 2mm pitch connector. What I have is below.

I am creating a sheet metal box. I just realize I do not have Vent in Sheet Metal feature. Doing the manual cut is time consuming. What other option do I have?

I have a control panel with a logo that is apparently a double nested extrusion. I created it myself and thought at the time I love this new feature. I made a copy of the control panel to work on the next rev. and when I remove some of the lettering from Boss-Extrude2 suddenly the logo generates a "double nested extrusion" mssg. and the extrusion fails.

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.

So I was modelling a weld-ment structure. During modelling, i created a series of holes to insert bolts on one side. Now I want to make similar holes on the other side.

I'm working with several plastic parts imported from NX (Parasolid) and my job now is to modify them with Solidworks, so I have to find the best way to transform the part in order to make it parametric but taking advantage of the geometry already existing. I guess that Feature Recogniser should be my very best friend in this kind of situations, but I'm not taking a good advantage from it because the pieces are a bit complex and I'm not using it as deeply as possible I think...

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.

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.

I am missing the configuration button in equations row. Is there a setting for this? Are you trying to create configurations?

I've modeled a solid body (as a revolution with some later extruded cuts). My goal is to laser-cut the individual layers of this shape and then secure them together to build the full shape. I've done fabrication of this variety before, but generally I have only needed a few layers for the particular projects I was working on. In this case, I expect to need 60+, so manual production of these designs isn't practical.

Weld vertices When I create fillets on round, irregular shaped profiles I can usually get away with a fairly good looking fillet - however it often produces some "junk" geometry.

I'm trying to create a belt feature around two pulleys of different size. I selected the Engage Belt option and created the feature. When I rotate the pulleys in the assembly it doesn't take in to account that the pulleys are different sizes and the driven pulley rotates through the same angle and the driving pulley.

I have a mold base that I am putting runner pins in. tell it to propagate feature to parts. the original hole does not go thru the b- back up plate, but the mirrored one do.

Hole Wizard Drop-Down Defaults We have noticed a few times where parts have come through the shop with counterbores for hex head bolts when they should have been for SHCS. In Solidworks, It seems when selecting counterbored holes in the hole wizard, the drop-down for "type" always defaults back to Hex Head instead of remaining SHCS.

Trying to make some slots with CutExtrude+ThinFeature I'm not getting the auto fillet corners anyway. I've tried with no draft angle, diferent dimensions for the thickness and the fillet, but nothing. I've never tried this feature before, only usual extruded cuts... What is left to do in order to make it work propperly?

Hi, I'm creating a table for different size washers with "Modify Configurations". It was all going fine but I keep having issues with columns in my "Custom Properties" not saving the data I type in them. I click apply and save the table but when I re-open the table the cells are set back to "<Not Specified>". It has kept a few of the cells' values but not most.

Scanning a room or could you see the use of it to scan a part to be able to drop into an assembly? They are not there yet but to scan a part and pull measurements off the screen to catch any dim you want sounds really great.
