Hey there, so as part of work I need to update our companies toolbox. I created a coupling hex nut and saved it to my desk top. When I configured it and saw it in ToolBox, it said at the top that it had 0 configurations but the part that I made should have 7. Along with I need to add properties, and in non-custom parts they show up under "Standard Properties" but I do not know how to add to Standard Properties.
We have our material database in a network folder and a few years ago there was a valid reason not to put it in the EPDM vault. Now with updates and new versions is there any reason not to put our custom material database file in the EPDM vault? we have had no issues with ours being in our vault (since 2011). but yeah the recently added feature to automatically "get latest" on selected folders on log in has been a nice improvement for files like this (at least when it works)

while I am opening .brd files in solidworks premium 2015 it is showing processing under the tab.IS it possible to open it in that.. plzz answer If by .brd files you're meaning PCBs then no SW won't open directly board files. Can your PCB team output IDF files instead and then you can open them.
I'm in Solidworks 2017 and I'm using a template for the drawing document with the "Overall drafting standard" set to use the ANSI. However, the drawings continue to come up with what appears to be the ISO standard. I go to the Document Properties > Overall drafting standard and it says it ANSI. I click the dropdown and select something else, then click the dropdown again and select ANSI, click OK, and the drawiwng changes to ANSI.
Change icons i had solidworks 2015, and now i have the solidworks 2017, but on the explorer before i could differentiate the files(drawing, part or assy), and now all the files have the same icon, how i can change it ?
answer this question please I'm not sure I understand what you want, but if you want to add text to a dimension it's as easy as clicking in the box in the dimension's Property Manager and typing what you want. Does that answer your question?
When i am installing solidworks 2017 sp1 i'm getting an error which is the file that is required for installation is corrupt:Chm_En~1.Cab. This still isn't fixed? I'm trying to download an expensive product I paid for, and it is failing to install.
feature tree has no features. Need to get into a few parts in an assembly and make changes but the features are not there. Also there is a blue line under last line in the tree. Be aware I am very "green" and may have trouble understanding or even asking the right question Ha
All the dropdown menus on the Forums page require you to click them to activate, except for this one: I use the 'All Content' button frequently and 30% of the time I overshoot, click, and end up at 'My SolidWorks'.
More often than usually, I have been finding myself getting to the page in the forums shown below. It seems if I click something too fast, I show up here. I don't think I'm supposed to be able to access this. Not that any damage could be done, but I'm sure the moderators would want to close this off to the public.
