We evaluated the add-in but so far decided it is not worth it. Here is a list of frustrations that we faced. I'm putting these here in hopes of SW fixing these issues in later versions and we might reconsider:

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?

Solidworks freezes using Geomagic I've recently been using Geomagic to work with a scanning FARO arm. When processing larger point samples, Solidworks is constantly in a state of Not Responding.. it's killing my productivity and my boss isn't happy about that.

We have used task scheduler for batch printing and converting drawings to PDF in the past and it was working for us a few months ago, but it isn't working right now. I'm on SolidWorks 2017 SP3.0 and we are just about ready to upgrade to 2018. Does it work with 2018? Is there a fix that I need to do?

I have no accsess to costing, I have SW pro, others in the office can access it once a part is open it appears in the tool > solidworks applications, however I do not get that option. We have plenty of pro licences on the network.

At my office we utilize SolidWorks (SW) and Altium which is like Circuit Works (CW). Our engineers cannot figure how to get a single board assembly saved as one part instead of a 400 part assembly. Just give me someting easy to handle and deal with people!!

We just switched to Solidworks 2018 and I noticed that the Pipe Routing module doesn't have the "Start at Point" option that the Tubing does. It wasn't always this way. The Piping module in 2016 had it.

When I select a profile of a boss an try to machine it, it simulates fine but the actual machine HAAS VF3 will not run it. I get Tool Radius Compensation errors every time. It seems like CAM Works wants me to have zero radius tools. It is programming the path as if it is the center of the tool.

Has anyone come up with a way to have more than just one 2D foot print for a component? What I'm currently working with is a panel layout, where on 1 page I want to show where the 4 panels I have are laid out together. Then on 4 later pages, I want to show the panel again with left/front/right/bottom displays. If it were possible to have one 2d foot print showing just the front view, and a 2nd foot print that showed left/front/right/bottom, that would be ideal.

When using the vault and navigating into a folder, when you back out of the folder the vault view resets itself to the top of the list! Very annoying. Windows explorer remembers your scroll position and when you go back it automagically puts you back where you were. Is this just stuck like this in PDM Vault?

So I have previously rendered nice images before, however all of a sudden my render setting have gone shoddy. I tried to make the box in the photo chrome, but it comes out like a dull grey. I have made sure the chrome appearance is the only one designated to the part. Can someone tell me what I should do to fix this please?

I'm new to SolidWorks and how the product is supported, to which I'm not finding support for 2018 easy to find and not sure if I should follow 2017. Anyhow, I have new computer with win10, and new install of SolidWorks Electrical 2018.0.0 Build 106. Which was a download, they have since sent ver 2107 on dvd not sure what that is good for.
