I am trying to select the BOM shown on the active sheet, does anyone know how to do this? I currently have code that traverses the tree to select the BOM Feature but I ran into an issue where this won't work because the 1st BOM in the tree is on the 2nd sheet.

Flatten is grayed out in pro. To my knowledge, this is the first time that SolidWorks has grayed out a tool in pro that can be used to making parts. It's like requiring an upgrade to premium to use the loft command. If you look at the feature matrix the additional capability of premium (over pro) are specialty capabilities:

I am having a bit of trouble with using the equations in solidworks. The way that I know to use equations is to create a global variable, and then assigning that variable to something like the length of a line. Lets say I have created the variable "B" and assigned the value to be 40mm. Then I smart dimension a line and try to add the variable, the line just smart dimensions to 40mm, and not the "B" variable.

I would like to use some third party nuget packages within my PDM add-in. However, when I debug the app it crashes once it hits the code that would call methods in the third party packages. Any idea on how to get this working?

A part I was working on today began to give me some trouble. Namely when I tried to save the part Solidworks shot a 'failed to save document' message back. When I checked the folder I was trying to save to, a file was created using the correct filename however the filesize was 0 KB and wouldn't open. At the same time I noticed that this part, and just this part, has some kind of 'L' overlayed in front of symbols in the design tree such as cut extrude, tapped hole, etc.

So i am trying to create cards to help search through an insane amount of files and I am having issues with the radio buttons. I have 4 radio buttons set up... What i need to be able to do is when I am performing a search in a search card I need to be able to clear whatever button may be checked. if someone is searching for a file using one of these 4 conditions and then decide they would rather just include all 4 options (by them being cleared) it would be way easierthan it would be to cancel

I wanted to draw a simple hydrofoil design (in 2d to begin and then if the profile is correct make a better 3d version) from coordinates to export it to ansys a cfd software. As expected something went wrong, it says that the foil override itself and can't be drawn, even if i adjudt the points so if anyone knows how to do it thank you very much ! ( I still managed to draw the foil but in two pieces so it's not very practical ) here are the coordinates :http://airfoiltools.com/airfoil/details?

I have some assemblies made up of a set of parts that get put together in different but similar ways. For instance my assembly might have lights in one configuration and no lights in another, but the the rest is the same. I would like to be able to have all of my parts drawn once and then find some way to pull in the appropriate part drawings to my project drawing package in such a way that if I were to modify a part drawing it would trickle out to various configurations of my top level assembly

I know well how to map a variable from a folder datacard or file datacard to a cell in Excel. But when I try to do it with a date variable I can't achieve it. Maybe the problem is the date format (because is not a simple text data), I guess.

I work with large assemblies consisting of many subassemblies. It would be convenient for the to quickly turn on only the top-level reference planes for each subassembly, without seeing all of the dozens of planes for the component parts of that subassembly. Is there a way to do this quickly?

I have an assembly imported in Visualize using the automatic grouping. Let's say I have a few components using the same apperance. If I wan't to change that apperance I could, in Visualize 2017, copy the the desired apperance and then right click on the apperance I want to be changed and select "assign apperance. ..". It worked like a charm!
