I just got an e-mail from 3D Connexion support, shown below, that fixes the issue with the dynamic highlight turning off while using a 3D connexion device. See the notes below and the instructions. Made the update to the driver and turned it off in the registry.

Dynamic Highlighting Why does this Dynamic highlighting turn itself off and how can I stop it? It turns off random, sometimes usually while am in the middle of a command like adding dimensions on a drawing sheet.

I'm running a motion analysis to determine the force a linear motor would need to output to open a hatch (axis of rotation is horizontal). I'm happy with most of my results except for the very beginning of my simulation when the actuator starts pushing. I get a huge spike in the output force! I've seen this is a few other peoples results browsing around.

I've read that it is not possible to impart a simulated spin or movement to a part or an assembly being put through a simulated wind tunnel testing scenario within SolidWorks. I don't know if this is true across the board with all versions of SolidWorks or if it only applies to my older version of SolidWorks. If this is true, are therework-aroundsthat any of you more experienced SolidWorks users have developed?

There are like 34 parts in the BOM Table which make really difficult to read and see the components ( exploded graphics) in one page , It would be better if I can show the BOM Table and exploded graphics in different page. Not 100% clear on what you are trying to do but any reason why you can't just create another view giving you another "page"? Can you attach some screenshots on what you are currently getting and what you are trying to do so we can better advise you?

You've drawn a weldment and are wondering how many lengths of steel to order? Solidworks gives you the total length - but that doesn't really help most of the time.

When I select a profile of a boss an try to machine it, it simulates fine but the actual machine HAAS VF3 will not run it. I get Tool Radius Compensation errors every time. It seems like CAM Works wants me to have zero radius tools. It is programming the path as if it is the center of the tool.

I've spent quite some time working on the headlight glass for my truck only to find that it's becoming a real resource sucker (patterns). So, I went looking around the internet for a quality 3D model of a round domed headlight with patterned glass, why re-invent the wheel right? No joy! I need something about 175mm in Diameter (approx. 7").

Is there a way to drag multiple components at once using drag operator? I can drag one component at a time just fine, but I need to be able to move multiple things at once. You should use the AddComponent method of the DragOperator to add as many components as you need to move.

When you create a bend in a sheet metal part, Solidworks creates extra faces on the end that don't seem necessary. e.g. If I'd modeled the geometry in this image without the sheet metal tool, the 3 faces highlighted would be a single face.

Nonlinear analysis running slowly with direct sparse solver I've been working on a nonlinear analysis that's proven to be more frustrating that I anticipated. I had a linear static analysis of the same model completing within about 3 minutes for some deflection information.
