I have downloaded a large number of tube fittings, which are all in STEP AP214 format. Is there any feature where I can convert all STEP files in one go? Converting them one by one will take a 2-3 days. Any advice?

I have a single part with a few perforations on it, and three of the four configurations take ages to rebuild and I don't know why. Could someone tell me what options I should look for to see what the fourth one is doing differently from the rest that enables it to load so fast? ,configurations

I am building an external program that opens SW in the background, makes changes to an assembly, and saves the result as .stp and .pdf (3D) documents. Once the operations complete, the program closes down SW and all open documents without saving. I recently upgraded to SW17 and now have a strange problem:when saving to .stp or .PDF all .SLDPRT documents that have been modified are automatically saved.

I come from an Alibre background and on that platform you can Ctrl drag and it drags a sub-assemblie out of a bigger assembly maintaining it orientation. The same command in solid works drags a part only.

I need some advice on what could be causing constant issues with Solidworks not responding. Over the years I have lost mountains of work and money because my computer/Solidworks decides to pack it in and stop responding at random points. I don't know what is causing it but I get it with other programs as well such as Word. This is when using my laptop and home PC and has spanned across different operating systems (Windows 7 and 10) and hardware.

I have an assembly and I have place Weld Bead stitching (Assembly > Assembly Features > Weld Bead) in many places. It took me ages getting it right, but now when I make the drawing, they are not showing in the wireframe model (Hidden with edges) but I can see them in the shaded model (Shaded with edges). Although I can see them in the shaded one, there is no way to dimension them. I also can't get the actual weld details to show.

I have a few models which contain inclined surfaces. When detailing these models, I can produce auxiliary views ok, but I then have to manually hide non planer lines in the auxiliary view so just the inclined surface is displayed. Is there a more efficient way to rid the auxiliary view of non planer lines?

Is there a way to restore the default files for Part and Assembly templates, or somewhere to download them? Mine have become corrupted and opening new parts/assemblies is now a major pain. There are actually no default templates shipped with the software or downloadable from anywhere.

Like the title says, this isn't about ONE and TWO. This is about the little things. Small, minor bugs that make you wish SOLIDWORKS was a person so that you could build a time machine to go back and murder its parents. Bonus points if the problem is just intermittent enough to make you forget about it, until it happens again.

In order to get more accurate FEA for 3D printed parts I want to get the model as it is printed by the printer, so the sliced part with the printed layers and the infill etc. I have written a macro that allows me to import a .txt with the points of the extruder head and draw lines in between them.

our systems engineer took it upon himself to upgrade to 2018 without telling or asking anyone (we work at a small company). now all of his designs are saved in 2018, but us with 2017 can't open his files unless they are converted to .STEP (losing all feature tree history... you all know the score). i just briefly looked at his system in the "save as..." dialog but couldn't find any options to save as a legacy type solidworks file. of course, he said that 2018 files were backwards compatible with

I keep coming up to an issue where I am working top-down and would like to create subasemblies/subweldments from my top level assembly. Is there a way to use the "form new subassembly" and not lose all the mates I have established? For example, in the photo, the box and the two mounting plates are a part of one weldment, while the tube and the other set of plates are a part of another. I would like to define the location of the mounting plates via the geometry on the second weldment.
