I've recently upgraded to SW 2017. Been a long time user. However, i've notice that the file name link properties is not working properly in my drawing template. The first page shows the file name as i bring in my first assembly.

Right now when I use the balloon to call out parts of my derived configuration it will reference a BOM for is own derived configuration. I would like the balloon to reference the parent BOM so I don't have multiple BOM's in a single drawing. Does anyone know how I can do that?

Does anyone know of a way to find what sheet of a multi-sheet drawing a BOM resides on? This seems like it should be easy, but after searching forums and the API help, it doesn't appear to be as simple as I thought. I have a macro that cycles through each sheet in a multi-sheet drawing, saves the BOM out of each sheet to Excel, and saves the drawing sheet to PDF.

How do I select a vertex when creating a dimension with DimXpert in a cross section? It only wants to select the entire feature so I can't create the dimensions that I need. , creating dimensions

I have heard discussion lately about how the measure tool still does not satisfy some requirements for our users. I would like to start a specific discussion so that we (Product Definition) can better understand what works well with it, what needs improvement, or perhaps we should throw out the entire thing and start over etc. Make distinctions between function (measure mass properties, area etc.) verses and GUI and behaviors (this should pop up here and this should look like...) thanks in

I wanted to take the CSWP exam so I did the sample question. I made the part and everything seems correct to me however I couldn't get the correct answers. I even redo it a few times and tried something different each time trying to find what I did wrong but still didn't work.. I noticed that even when I got the answer right for question 1, but when I modified the equations for the next question, the answer was wrong.

I've deleted several belt features but sketch which they were mated to remains at the bottom of the feature tree forever suppressed. How can I remove these? This is an update holder (see link below for description).

I'm making a set of corner brackets to ship a PCB board and need to make two versions, opposites. I made the first version and tried to use the Insert / Mirror Part function but it's grayed out. The help file does not mention any prerequisites for this to work. Any suggestions on what I need to do to enable this function?

I have this assembly in a drawing file where I've been able to adjust the line thickness of the exploded path lines. When I print or save as an image the exploded lines return back to the standard thickness. This is with the Document Properties>Line Font Adjusted

I have a VB.net macro that finds SW files on my network, opens them one at a time, runs another macro (VBA) on each file, and closes the file. It runs correctly on ~400-600 files without problem, but then consistently crashes after running for 15-20 minutes.

Drawing dimensions offset from origin reduced when saving into AutoCAD. I don't know if anyone else has encountered this problem. I'll have a dimensioned drawing in Solidworks which looks perfectly good.

For other Ansys users - When we Refresh Geometry on the Mechanical screen, on most of my user's computers, Ansys loses all the selected surfaces. Really sucks to have to reattach all the connections, loads, and fixtures etc.

Inevitably some of my parts and assemblies get to some point where, if I even think about sneezing, Solidworks will go into "think" mode and leave me hanging for several seconds. At a duty cycle of about 30% user activity I start getting really annoyed. It's quite possible that my modeling habits cause at least part of the delay.

I have a lot of models I deal with regularly that I will get from Vendors/Internet, change visually to what I need them to represent and then save them. Usually after that I never need to make adjustments anymore. I have one part that has an extremely high rebuild time. Again it probably could be modeled better to improve the time but I just don't have time to rebuild this file now.

I'm importing a STP file model of a connector. The import works fine and all the surfaces are healed. However, the dimension of the part is off by 2 orders of magnitude, i.e. 215 mm should be 2.15 mm. Why is this happening?

2017 toolbox problem We went from 2015 to 2017 a couple weeks ago and little things keep popping up. Recently, occasionally, when starting SW I'll get a message stating "You appear to have experienced problems last time you loaded the SW Toolbox add-in". the first time I saw this I didn't recall having any problems, been using SW2017 about a week when this first appeared.

Is it possible to change the default settings for player so that when someone opens the .exe file the Views panel does NOT show? I know I can make it go away once I open it, but I would like for it to NOT show when it's open by the customer. , composer player

I have investigated using grid systems but it just doesn't seem to be designed for the architectural industry. The company that I work for does a lot of architectural feature work such as stairs, awnings, canopies and lobbies. We need to follow a lot of architectural details and use the grid system setup by the project. We do most of our modeling fairly closely following the Skeleton Sketch Part Method for Large Assemblies.

Is it possible after you have created a part or assembly model to have it rotate constantly around it's axis until you stop it. I know you can manually rotate the model , but was wondering if there was a setting somewhere that automatically keeps it rotating
