I have been trying to find a way to make my route sketch dimensions and drawing dimensions in inches but then have the length of pipes in feet in the BOM. I was hoping to have this length appear in the quantity column of the BOM. Does anyone have suggestions on how to do this? I have played around with changing the document units in the for the pipe files themselves, the units for the pipe assembly, and the units for the parent assembly that route is in but am still having issues.

Whilst using Solidworks electrical to modify a drawing for another job , I have the issue that after moving around a few items on screen hundreds of horizontal lines appear on screen. Every time I try to delete them more appear until eventually I have 700+ lines on screen and my program freezes. Has anyone any idea why this happens and how I can stop it. We have 2 CAD computers and the issue happens on both of them.

I have a question about routing, I could be doing this wrong however every time I make a model with the piping I end up with 2 assembly files, the first one is usually a flange and the routing sub assembly and the second assembly is the routing sub assembly. Now I know you can make a virtual component which saves the file internally which eliminates the need for having two assembly files however the help mentions :

This is what I see for missing hardware. OK, first of all, you need to define "everyone". I am going to assume that you mean all the people that you work with.

I'm trying to render a model. I set up a camera, but when I try to set my view orientation to it the screen rotates to the correct angle, but is zoomed out. It doesn't work any better in Two View - Vertical display, but it does work on Two View - Horizontal (first 2 screenshots).

I have attached a part file created form an assembly. I am wanting to conduct a flow test with rotation. I cannot figure out how to sketch and extrude the rotational region as I cannot extrude it and chose not to merge the extrusion results. Any ideas?

When I click route wires, some of my wires route correctly and I can see the 3D wire but some wires don't even though their 3D sketch wire path is still there. Why are the 3D wires not being created even though the sketch path is already there? I took some screenshots and highlighted what I mean by some wires not wired and the path is still there. I need these 3D wires for generating reports for wire length.

I have yet to find a clean way of generating BOM's that catch everything, both mechanical and electrical. Short of manually or programmatically merging the two, which I really don't think I should have to do... I would prefer a way to generate one in electrical because the tools are much more robust for reports than they are in 3D, but vice versa would work too. As long as I can get my schematic marks on the list after I associate.

2017 toolbox problem We went from 2015 to 2017 a couple weeks ago and little things keep popping up. Recently, occasionally, when starting SW I'll get a message stating "You appear to have experienced problems last time you loaded the SW Toolbox add-in". the first time I saw this I didn't recall having any problems, been using SW2017 about a week when this first appeared.

At our company, we like to give each pipe segment it's own unique part number/name. As you know with pipe routing files, every time a new length is introduced, a new pipe configuration is created. Any time I am done with that particular pipe assembly, I'll need to go into each pipe segment, remove unneeded configurations and set the remaining one to "Document Name" (under Bill of Materials Options) so it fits our naming convention. I've gotten fairly fast at doing this through repetition, but it
