I have had this macro for a long time, I'm struggling to recall where Igot it from. I used it to replace the drawing sheets in all my drawings before I placed them into my workgroup PDM vault.

The example in SW API help is not doing what is supposed to do. I 'm assuming that the API call is not functioning correctly. Can anybody run this macro and get the correct output?

This morning one of the guys asked me a couple of questions about Pack-And-Go and following the questions I found he is having "Can't save because of a corrupt file" issues with his assembly. I was seeing this yesterday and in talking in the office we learned that the other engineer here is seeing the same thing. I searched the forum but did not get any recent hits for corrupt files so I thought I would ask so I could add to someone Else's SPR if there is one open. This did not start happening

I have an assembly which consists of winding, cylinder and other components. I am constantly giving a current of 1.1A to the winding which will generate a heat power. I am trying to do a non linear analysis, am applying power of 17.42watts to the copper and defining initial temperatures as room temperature 25degree.

Hi, anyone know how to generate the thread annotation in drawing? I make the thread by using thread feature. Niloo Akbari May 25, 2017 2:03 AM (in response to Kamaruzzaman Abdul Farid) You can in your model :insert , annotation, cosmetic thread and choose the thread you want, then in the drawing : click view, hide/show , make show annotation is ticked. in that case you don't need model your thread.

I would like to create a macro which saves an active assembly as separate dxf files of each of the standard views, but not current or ISOs. To do this manually, I have to first save the assembly as a part, then save the part as a dxf and check some boxes. The dxf folder is a sub folder of the active file location called "SW DXFs". I have found two macros, both written by Deepak Gupta, but I'm having trouble combining them as I have a very small knowledge of VBA.

Hello, i´m trying to make a diamond shaped net like this one with measures: 12 1/8" wide x 20 1/4" tall and 1/16" thick. The way i´m attempting to do this is by extruding a rectangle with that width and height and 1/8" thickness, then shelling one of the faces and making a sketch on that face with all the central lines of the wires. (with .1045" distance between each wire) this results in a sketch with approx. 400 lines.

So, we have this discussion about impressive SW tricks: Let's make another thread to capture the little things your co-workers/clients/customers do with SOLIDWORKS that bring thoughts of violence. Extra points if there's nothing technically wrong (see item 2 below) with what they've done but if you were in charge of the universe it would earn them a one-way trip into another dimension.

I am missing the configuration button in equations row. Is there a setting for this? Are you trying to create configurations?

This might be asking too much. If you have a view of an assembly with multiple configurations on a drawing sheet, and then drop a BOM and then tick on all or multiple Configurations

Configurations Question I have a sub-assembly that has three different configurations. Each configuration suppresses certain parts, changes dimensions, etc., and the parts are driven through equations based on a reference sketch.

I am struggling prescribing a displacement in Simulation. I want to displace certain nodes on my part but it only allows you to displace a face in a certain direction. Basically the same way a normal simulation with an imposed force shows you which nodes displace and the distance. I want to reverse that.

Is there a way to filter out a component from the BOM. I have a component in my model that I do not want to be shown in the BOM. Andrew Guitar Oct 7, 2010 9:20 AM (in response to mitchell shellenberger) Right click on the part in the assembly tree,select properties and in the lower right corner you will see a box that says"exclude from BOM".

I am using SW2014 SP5. I use the property tab for initially filling in custom properties. I have templates for parts, assemblies, drawings - and added one for weldments a few months ago when it was brought to my attention that the property tab can fill cut list properties in weldments.
