Hi guys i'm trying to mirror this part but getting the errors attached in the screenshot. I'm trying to mirror a part that consists of an uploaded mesh part from a 3D scan, surface created through surface wizard, then filled in the hollow part using convert entities and extruded boss. Just need the job flipped so i have a right and left, thanks

Have you noticed that the Assembly Visualization tool changed its behaviour in SW 2018? Instead of providing the report and leaving the components' appearances unchanged, now it paints them by default (the vertical slide bar is activated by default). In SW 2017 the user controls if and when the components get to be repainted.

I'm trying to use the new 3D pdf - MBD format in the PDM Convert task, and it's successfully creating a 3D pdf, but it's not using the template I specify (or any template at all). I started trying to get it to use our custom templates, then backtracked to the default ones - neither works. I've tried putting them in the vault (cached on the computer running the task) and also on the local computer running the task. I did modify the script per the instructionshereto enable the 3D pdf generation.

Does anyone know how to modify the "Advanced Scripting Options" in a Task Convert to 3D PDF so it uses your own custom 3D PDF? In the ePDM help section it tells you how to convert to 3D PDF but it just uses a blank template:

I'm creating a Drawing template which uses a "SW-Last Saved By" property in order to get info of the user is modifying a drawing avoiding to put any other info or Person name. I've added this property on the revision table but even I can get the information desired, the format is not as I needed to be displayed.

Has anyone seen issues when using the insert body into new part tool? Basically, once I insert body into a new part and save, I typically break references. For some reason now when I do that it gives me the ever so help full error "An Invalid Argument Was Encountered." After clicking ok on the error, I loose a number of the solid bodies that I had tried to save, they disappear from the UI and from the solid bodies folder, but the Stock-XXXX feature is still in the feature manager and has a

We have several drawings in which the BOMs are separate drawings (i.e. drawing is 123, BOM is PL123). Is it possible to generate a BOM from an assembly drawing but have it as a separate drawing? As far as I am aware a BOM has to be linked to a drawing view in the same drawing file, however you could make the scale of the drawing view very small and drag it off of the sheet.

I had 2014, and when creating assembly where one or more parts did not have an obvious point of attachment, I would create planes and mate them together. Now I cannot. What happened?

I was wondering if there would be a way to make a macro/function to select all objects mated to a part for a solidworks feature. The goal would be to turn this function into a useful macro piece of an exploding tool. You could select one object and then the function would select all parts mated to the part and you could explode this from a main assembly.

Having used SolidWorks for a couple of years now, I am surprised I've never come up against this before. It was actually a post in another forum that got me thinking about it. I almost told the guy there that the solution to his problem was just a table-driven pattern of planes. Super easy until I tried it and realized that you can't use any reference geometry as a pattern seed in a part.

OKI am way too deep into this personal project without a paddle. I am modeling the USS Missouri (or at least the hull) using publicly-available blueprints. Using the orthographic views, every available bulkhead, and every available deck view, I've put....something together. The bulkheads are sketched, and every deck except the bottom is modeled as a surface.

So SolidWorks is stuck in a loop after I tried importing an STL file. The popup just keeps showing up regardless of how many times you press ok. The STL file can be shared directly if needed, the file exceeds the allowed limit of this forum. (45mb)

Solidworks on one of my students laptop keeps crashing whenever she opens a sketch. If she opens an existing part or assembly, she has no problem moving or rotating the part/assembly. She can open the features, and manipulate them. She can delete the feature, and use the existing sketch to make another feature.

I cannot seem to find where I can change the size of the sectio view arrows. I want them to match my dimension arrows. I was able to get the section view text size to change but not the arrows. See screenshot.

I would like to rotate a specific drawing view 180° around the part's axis. Meaning I would like to look at the part from the opposite side while keeping the dimensions that are already added if possible. I do not want to create a new model view, or project view and add the dimensions again. I would like to modify the existing one.

Hi, After many years of use my hard drive crashed.I have reloaded Win10 onto an SSD and is re-activated, everything else remains the same, however Solidworks 2010 fails when asked to load from disc and search for updates latter.. Welcome to the forum. You'll probably need to contact the VAR you purchased the SW2010 from to have them release the license from the previous hard drive.
