We want to upgrade our Solidworks workstations to 2017 SP3, so we are upgrading our PDM Workgroup vault to the latest version, which the solidworks setup says the last version of PDM workgroups is 2016 SP5. Will Solidworks 2017 SP3 still work with PDM Workgroup 2016 SP5? The website says that 2018 will not work with PDM workgroup, but there's no mention of 2017.

I know radiation can be used as a heating source in thermal simulation but I can't find any resources describing how to apply it in a flow simulation. I am modeling a furnace where the pipes are used to cool the furnace so they have water flowing through them and hot air moves outside the pipes. The melted steel is several feet below the pipes and I want to see if the glow from the steel has a significant effect on the pipes' temperature. The steel is 3000F.

I need to model 1/2" tape coming off of a 12" reel and going through a series or rollers. Now this doesn't sound like too big of a deal. But the tricky part is that I need to have the tape twist 90 degrees as the rollers change it's direction. What's the best way to do this?

Fast speed video gets auto deleted after render When I go to export an alpha fast render image sequence it works great when I don't edit the name. If I change the name prior to exporting with Visualize it will delete all the files after it renders(the images and video and folder).

When a Tol Analysis is exported, it uses a default template that is not quite report friendly. Is there a template file that I can manipulate the way this data is presented? Jive Software Version: 2016.3.7.0, revision: 20170413171635.a36c780.nomerge_2016.3.7

I'm trying to debug a PDM plugin and I just can't get the debug tool to load it properly. I've recently upgraded to Visual Studio 2017 and I wonder if that is making a difference, though I wouldn't see why that should matter. I've gone through PDM Add-in Windows 7 64 bit compatability with no success so far, so any further help would be really good. The plug in can load properly if it is registered as a non-debug add-in, but since it's crashing and I can't find out exactly where, this doesn't

Trying to export a drawing to .dwg format for a client and every time I open the .dwg the only thing showing is the title block, notes and dimensions. I've had this issue before and I'm pretty sure it's related to surfaces. I also get an error I've never seen before when it finishes the export. Running on SW2016 SP4.0

I wonder if there's a way to tell if a file is deleted through the API using the File and Folder ID. Is deleted like a hidden workflow state? We create 2D template .dwgs to send out when we order steel.

I have a group of parts that have a large number of configurations in each file (1350 configurations). Each configuration is set up with a specific description, and then there is a different default description. I'm trying to get it set up so that all 5 parts will show in the description in the default configuration.

Hello, I'm trying to right some C# code to get the latest version of all the files associated with a file when it's being opened through my API. I was receiving errors in Visual Studio when I was using an array, and someone recommended I choose to do a list instead since I did not have a definite amount I want in the array. List is more flexible. I can also post the version of this with the Array if that would be preferred.

Basically, I have my own search using WinForms (standalone application outside of PDM) so that I can search for "base" part numbers in my search and pull in variables when I select the filename in the list. The first part works nicely and I'm trying to now pull variables from the file. I can get file information just fine, but it's breaking when I try to set my textboxes to the object string.

I need to overlay two parts to see if their geometries match. Is there an easy way to do this using document compare? Also, is there an easy way to edit one part to get it to match the other? For example, if I have a square plate with a bunch of holes and the part I created doesn't match exactly.
