Like the title says, this isn't about ONE and TWO. This is about the little things. Small, minor bugs that make you wish SOLIDWORKS was a person so that you could build a time machine to go back and murder its parents. Bonus points if the problem is just intermittent enough to make you forget about it, until it happens again.

Incorrect Server Name When Creating Vault When attempting to create a new vault named "Sandbox3", I am getting an error where PDM appears to be attempting to access a server with a different name than the database is on. The database server name is "TESTENGVAULT", and the PDM Administration tool appears to be attempting to query data from "ENGVAULT".

I have a part design where I want to be able to modify the part so that is has a specific value for the mass ... If I change the material (specifically the density), the distance the base sketch is extruded should update to keep the mass as specified by a CUSTOM property in the file.

I am trying to create a auto number for each line item of my Solidworks Electrical BOM, similar to how Solidworks creates a "Item No" for each component. I want to use this as a "Balloon" number in the 2D drawings world.

This is all in SW2016 SP5: I'm trying to enable network rendering, but am having issues. I've installed the client on my workstation, my server, and on my local machine, but when I preform a render, it only uses the local machine (whether the client locally is turned on or off).

I am trying to create a thread on a shaft using the Thread Feature in SW18 Standard. When I select the edge of the cylinder to be threaded, I get a note that says "Input Data to create Thread is Invalid". I also do not have any options in the dropdowns (greyed out/blank) to select my cutting tool (Die/Tap), size, etc.

While doing a math operation on a dimension within a model, using quotes (double prime, " ) the operation failed. It either stayed unchanged or you cannot click ok. However, when using "in" for inch the operation works. I am able to do this operation using quotes on other stations.

Has anyone got either a moving cutting block or a color to change working during a visualize animation? After my cut block failed to export I just used a section view which was not as effective at illustrating my subject. As for animating a color change (IE sensing tape darkening in the presence of H2S), I think I must be going about it wrong. but I can't find anything on the web.

I'm see multiple issues with using the the design library feature to drag and drop a feature into a solid model. The placement and dimensions come in correctly, but the sketch origin does not end up in the origin of the part. Is there a way to have the sketch origin match the origin of the model?

I love hearing people's experiences and insights on the tool, and thought we could share and help each other out (and SOLIDWORKS) by casting votes for Enhancement Requests that we've been pining for to put on the radar of the developers. So for me, Connection Labels are something I've used countless times, but found creating them to be tedious as I add the attributes for components that have a high circuit count. I've always wanted a way to more easily populate the attributes for large

We've been drafting components for another business who use Inventor who are very particular about their sheet formats and would like our Solidworks drawings to look identical to their Inventor format. My question is, can we customise the section lines and view labels to look like the Inventor types?

We would like to add another column to our revision table showing the current revision of the model (in addition to showing the current revision of the drawing). See attached picture. Is there any way to link this column to the model revision so it updates automatically?

What an excellent post for those of us hoping to learn as much as you know about SolidWorks. I would like to take #15 a little further and see if there is a work-around or something I am missing. I've modeled a "practice" weldment to get a better handle on working with them.
