I know how to create a single part in SolidWorks PCB (2018) but not sure how to create a mutliple part that is contained in a single package. Why I ask is because of the multiple pages of the schematic i need to put segments on different pages. Is there a video out there showing me how to do this? If not can someone at least explain it to me?

Repository some one help me with selecting repository in SolidWorks PCB 2018.For making a new project it needs a repository which is an empty field.what can i do? You may want to have a look in the web interface to see which repositories you have and the name of them.

I'm trying to create a OR gate symbol and the tools are difficult to use. So my question is is there a place to get symbol templates like on the home tool bar "symbol templates", where you can add more to it. Its a single OR gate in the package (SOT-23-5), its just to have a more logically clear schematic.

So I understand how to create the .libpkg from the .lia file but not sure how to make a library with multiple parts created from .lia files. Is there a limitation to the .libpkg to where i can not have multiples in that .libpkg? If someone could clarify that I would appreciate it or even point me to a video would be even better.

Details on the process used to import: First I go to file menu and then import the file (.max). Then a file .SWPcbDoc is created, mind you I already imported a .dsn file.

Is the PCB portion buried inside the SW 2018 disks or is it seperate? PCB is included in Professional/Premium version but depends on you requirements and you may need to buy the professional module of PCB/Electrical.

I just installed PCB 2018 PR1 and whenever I try to sign in I get an error message stating "Failed to retrieve User. Error retrieve data from database". This is occurring from both inside PCB itself and if I try to access the Vault web console. The beta was working fine, not sure what went wrong with PR1.

I'm evaluating the SolidWorks PCB Connector for data exchange between Altium and SolidWorks and I wonder why the whole geometry is being missed when pulling the PCB through the Connector. The board itself is being translated and shown properly, the components appear correctly in the feature tree, but you cannot see them. When opening a component you see an empty feature tree, no geometry.

I have no idea what this means. I can push the project successfully to the Connector from SWPCB, but my coworker tries to pull it into Solidworks CAD and sees this error message. Any ideas what its talking about?

How can I set the default font/size for designators on a board layout? Or can I change all designator strings in one command? You can right click and choose Find Similar Objects and by that filtering out the designators.

Can't define coordinate system SolidCAM I am trying to test the SolidCAM, so I opened a part file while watching different tutorials on youtube on how to start. I seem to have a problem at the very begging.

I reopened a project I had designed and released a while ago, made some schematic changes, updated the PCB, and now I need to redraw some traces. When I start the interactive routing tool and press tab to get the menu, I get a warning "The PCB has no valid via style rule defined".

Nearly all components that I use I generate myself and keep in library files for when edits are needed (which is fairly often). Is there a way to link to the library from the schematic so I don't have to search for it manually? KiCAD does this with a library editor link available from the context menu, which is very convenient, but I don't see anything similar here.

So can we actually design flex circuits in SW PCB? It says you can in the data sheet. But the options for it aren't in SW PCB (as far as I can see anyway). Board region stacks....

Before I generate all my data, I check the BOM and make sure the suppliers I've specified have my parts in stock. So far, if there's a supply issue I have had to go to my library and change the information, update all components in the schematic, then re-generate the BOM. There's gotta be a way to just select the second part supplier information that's already linked to the part, right?

Is there any way to get the variables from the data card paired up with the title block parameters in SW PCB? I haven't found anything on the ol' intertubes that says we can. Oh how nice it would be to have all of this tied together.
