How many times do you see a great thread get trashed or hijacked for various reasons and I'll take the "Stand" and say I'm the worst for doing that.. So when I'm acting stupid tell me to trash it here, get it?? Rants - Cheers - Pet Peeves - or your Aunt Lilly, bring it.. (More then likely the dumbest thread anybody started, but I tried to keep it stupid, stupid) - The Forum Moderators rules still apply, no obscene pics, raunchy language and personal attacks, those will be reported and deleted if

I made this quick model to try something in motion studies. I have this bowl, and i have its axis constrained to front and right planes, and the bottom coincident to the top plane. I positioned the three balls above the bowl in the first animation frame. I have all of their materials set to plain carbon steel.

2018 pr1 doesn't seem to include solidworks cam? The beta version had it but pr1 doesn't seem too. Don't know about pr1, I haven't downloaded it but my VAR called me yesterday to see if I'd be trying it so it'll be in SP0!

This is an interesting question to me because I haven't had to CAD As-Built/As-Build anything in my career until recently. I also never did any of this in college. All the things I have done in CAD have been for new items; never for parts that exist.

Explorer opens in Desktop but I want it to open in a different directory. How do I change the startup directory? Someone earlier said to just have a favorites folder on the desktop with the directories in it but this does NOT answer the question.

When inside of a part model or assembly, if you right click on the part in the feature tree you can open its drawing. Some parts will have multiple drawings (in this case the default is now obsolete). Is there a way to change this so that when I click "open drawing" it links to the latest drawing and not the obsolete version. At this point I feel as though I have tried virtually everything.

Working with many companies, I found out that the success of implementing SOLIDWORKS is significantly influenced by one factor: the presence of one or more passionate power-users, who take a leadership role in championing the use of best practices, and continually look for ways to improve existing workflows, or create new ones. At this point, I entertain the idea to recommend hiring or identifying such potential power-users internally to all my customers.

Since our upgrade to PDM 2017 (sp4.1) the Web2 client is broken. Clicking on a file kicks the user back to the login screen, and logging in again takes you to another login screen. Marking a file's checkbox and selecting File > Download results in a JSON error.
