Incorrect shaded exploded view I have been having problems with an assembly's exploded view showing up incorrectly when inserted into other things. The current iteration of this is when the exploded view of the assembly shown below (figure 1) is inserted into a drawing as "Current Model View", the explode is shown correctly/incorrectly depending on if the drawing view is "Hidden Lines Removed"

Ok I am going to attempt to word this correctly. Sometimes when saving a part in an assembly I can save as an parasolid or step etc. and it gives me the option to save just the highlighted component. When it does that's great and works perfectly so that I can detail just that plate or component. A lot of files I don't get that option even appearing when I have just one component visible and highlighted and it still wants to save the entire assembly.

You can link between Part and Assembly with "Material" Property Does anyone know why doesn't it work with "PartNo" Property?

I'm concerned about data backups for our PDM server. I'm less inclined to trust the networking team to backup our data nightly and be able to restore it in a timely manner. I'm asking what lessons learned and best practices have been developed and shared in the community? What software is needed?

Just curious if there's anyone out there in PDM land who's gone all out on the number of file extensions for a data card. I have a customer who has a data set that has over 70 file extensions currently that we want to attach to a a data card (I know there will be more). Luckily the card will have just a few variables. I always recommend against doing this with my customers, but this time it seems needed unless I can find an alternative or they can work with the parent folder data card for search

One of our VAR team suggested looking at the use of virtual parts. I have tried using them on a welment. A draw backs is I don't seem to be able to do a 'save as copy' for a part that is to remain internally in the assembly.

Attached is an existing part that I have worked with in the past. I'm trying to create some similar solid models but having no luck. If you look at the part it has blunt corners on the nose of the part. I can't figure out how to model a part with blunt corners similar to the part I attached as an example.

I've experienced this with many different parts imported from many different sources. For example, I've downloaded a number of STEP files from 80/20's online catalog of fittings. Each time, I convert these STEP files to Solidworks parts. I use the automatic feature recognition, which usually works.

Hello, so i am making a drawing for an assembly on one sheet and the various parts on the proceeding sheets, I am trying to configure the costume properties in a manner that the part number field will automatically populate with the part number of the part on that particular sheet and that sheet only. I have created custom properties for assembly numbers and part numbers and linked them in a text field on the drawing but the field only populates with the part number of the part or assembly on

Hey there! I've got a hinge modeled as an assembly. Everything works fine, but when I export a BOM, I see each individual part of the hinge (yes, I need to export a parts level BOM, not a top-level BOM). Because I order the whole hinge as one part, I would like to have the same setup in Solidworks.

Can someone explain to me why this sheet metal part is doing what it's doing? With "Instant3D" on, click on the green edge flange. You are able to drag the dimension to where you want. (The dimension is blue)

I feel like this should be something simple, but I cannot figure it out. How do I change the default template when making a drawing? I have saved the sheet format that I like and I know how to load it, but I don't want to do that. I would like it if when I created a new drawing, my format would come up automatically.

Is it possible for validate whether these sheetmetal parts are feasible for bending ? I don't see why you couldn't. Seems pretty straight forward to me.

When I was using 2016, Pack n Go was easy and straight forward. As the whole idea of parametric modelling is not to have duplicates but re-use where possible, existing parts etc etc, P&G in 2016 worked it just fine. For Example:

Scanning a room or could you see the use of it to scan a part to be able to drop into an assembly? They are not there yet but to scan a part and pull measurements off the screen to catch any dim you want sounds really great.
