When inserting my created Views to the Timeline in Animation Mode, the point at which I merged the new assembly into the document (in this case, the Drill) is captured. How do you get the merged assembly to appear in place, without showing the translation (rotation/alignment) process (see ref. image below)? Note: The translation process shows when playing the views in sequence in View Mode as well.

There have been a number of requests regarding my "All The Small Things" presentation from SWW18. If you didn't get a booklet, I have attached a .pdf - If your printer will do 2-sided copies, everything should come out in order - just cut in half, fold, and staple.

How many times do you see a great thread get trashed or hijacked for various reasons and I'll take the "Stand" and say I'm the worst for doing that.. So when I'm acting stupid tell me to trash it here, get it?? Rants - Cheers - Pet Peeves - or your Aunt Lilly, bring it.. (More then likely the dumbest thread anybody started, but I tried to keep it stupid, stupid) - The Forum Moderators rules still apply, no obscene pics, raunchy language and personal attacks, those will be reported and deleted if

With geometric tolerances you can drop the tolerance on a dimension and it becomes embedded in the dim. I would like to do the same with a flag note. But, when I do the flag is destroyed and only the text from the note is added to the dimension.

I've been looking all over the internet for several months now, looking for bar/pub interior HDR environments. I've looked in most, if not all of the free areas that have been posted up here and other places, but have yet to find a suitable file. Anyone have any good leads?

I'm trying to upgrade some files in our EPDM, and no matter how I configure the tool, I keep getting the message below. I've tried logging in as admin, I've tried having the files checking in/checked out, I've tried adding variables, I've tried setting it to overwrite the current version, create a new version. I've changed the location to save the log file to a pdm folder/then a local folder. I've checked and double checked that the folder I am selecting to upgrade does indeed contain files that

Mirror Drawing view Shaded First I couldn't even do mirror drawing view and I noticed that if I the display style quality is on draft quality the mirror will be grayed out so you won't even use it. I changed to high quality and it showed me the option but now I want it shaded and it doesn't allow me to do it.

Is there a way to automatically compare threaded or clearance holes to the threaded fastener? The problem I've had on occasion is that I have a bolt from the toolbox in an assembly but I have the threaded hole incorrect (either diameter or pitch). I know this is my error but it would be really nice if SW could detect and alert me if the hole feature doesn't match the bolt. This is probably a long shot but I see some really handy things people have done that I didn't even think would be possible.

In a previous SolidWorks World presentation (can't remember which year), they were presenting either an add-in or a new module of SolidWorks that allows you to do various design concept in SW rather than the old days of using pencil and paper. Does anyone know how to access that module? We are starting a new project and rather than creating the concepts on paper, I would like to use SW to do it.

I have been cruising here looking for more information of weld beads and not finding the answers I need. I generally prefer to just use weld symbols but most of our welders either don't look at them nor know what they mean so the beads and caterpillars would convey the meaning more clearly. I have a weldment (not a SW weldment) that utilizes tabs and slots along with a lot of skip welds.

Is there any way to make the rollback bar a touch easier to grab? The bar is only 3-4 pixels in thickness, but the mouse cursor only changed to a hand when the top 1-2 pixels are selected. Maybe add some invisible border around the bar? Increase the thickness?

In other words, can I subject an object/part to two distinct gas vectors at the same time? This is very important in terms of aerodynamic design work (propellers/wings). For example, when using the flow simulation wizard I can see a way to set up a vector in the XYZ direction.

I have an assembly with some subcomponents. The assembly was created locally on another computer, and now I have that assembly on my computer (where the file/folder structure is different). One of the subcomponents is suppressed. If I right-click on that subcomponent and choose "component properties", in the field "model document path" there is the old path from the computer where the component was originally created.

When I edit an appearance & save as a new one to the library, the icon is always red in SolidWorks 2018. The appearance applies correctly but the icon is wrong. These are custom materials created in an earlier version of SolidWorks. If I edit an existing SolidWorks 2018 appearance & save as a custom appearance then the icon appears correct.
