I did some simple testing of no penetration contact sets in 2017 solidworks simulation professional and go disappointing results. I'm doing static analyses that start-off with some gaps (~0.25") between two different sub-assemblies. One sub-assembly is fixed and the other has forces applied. The forces should result in the two sub-assemblies coming into contact and then setting up the stress and displacement states.

I moved SW2015 Pro SP4 from a Dell T7500 running Win7 Pro 64b, to an HP Z840 running Win10 Pro 64b. Everytime I try to open a file using File>Open, SW crashes. I can open a file through SW Explorer, but when I try and save it, SW crashes. Thoughts?

I was wondering of anyone could help through the process of creating and importing an XML file to which EPDM will import please? I cant seem to find any documentation which tells you how to create an xml file for EPDM to then import. Also how does EPDM then add future imports to the list or does it just replace the list?

I'm not so experienced with the SW / EPDM Api. I need to run a simple piece of code during a EPDM task. We need to generate a dxf and a pdf from a .dft file (Solid Edge).

sketch segments projected intersection Hi, I've been looking for a method to determine the intersection of sketch segments (line,Arc, spline etc) where the segments either intersect or the projected intersection point. I've used ICurve.IntersectCurve, Moddoc:ClosestDistance etc which don't work for projected, and inserting an actual point can be difficult particularly with projections and splines.

I've been struggling with the Hole Wizard API last night. I started by reading the documentation. It is lengthy, but not complete or clear. The HoleWizard5 function has 27 parameter, but the function of each variable depends on the hole type that you create.

Pretty much what the title says. I'm sick and tired of trying to find user-generated hotfixes for stuff like this. Unfortunately I've searched high and low, tried every fix for this issue (in older threads) and I'm back to square one. I can enable FSAA just fine but it doesn't actually do anything.

I have a fly-through animation of a machine. It's about 2 minutes long and I want the last key frame to exactly match the position of the 1st key frame to create a seamless looping animation. I've tried using the move tool to move the last key frame around, but I just can't get a perfect match. Does anyone know a way to get a perfect match?

I'm currently having an issue with my Solidworks PDM Setup. I have no issue connecting to the vault with a computer directly connected to the local network but when someone attempts to connect to the vault through Microsoft VPN it throws this error: "Could not access the item in the database." when I check the log file it reads: Error running query in SpDbOdbc

So today was interesting. I discovered that notifications from PDM were not being sent to users in over3 weeks. Upon discovering that, I restarted the Database Server and boom, all hell broke lose - sending all those stored emails. Crazy how no one told me they were not getting any notifications - when they are moving items in the vault on ahourlybasis.

I am trying to export an assembly of a sheet metal part with PEM engineering inserts however, only the sheet metal part is exported and none of the PEM inserts show up. The PEM inserts were originally downloaded as STEP files and open normally and were saved as a SLDPRT if that information is relevant.

I have brought in 2 PCBs (via step file) from Altium and saved them as assemblies. When 1 is open and you try to open the 2nd it confused and tries to grab the parts and locations from the first. Help.

I'm running SW2017 SP4.1. When I add a mate, often times the first mate will drag the part off the screen - nothing new there. So the problem is, when I grab the part to drag it near the other component I want to mate it to, it deletes the mate I just added.

I have just converted from workgroups PDM to PDM standard and don't really understand how to get files and assemblies into the vault. I copied and pasted an assembly from my local drive but it does not seem to have copied in all the components of the assembly. The assy is only one file.

I wondered if there was a way to grow the surface of a part that might be quite complex, a bit like scaling but not the same. i mean grow the part like it had a 0.25mm thick layer of plating equally all over? What I actually want to do is create a pocket into which my part fits, but I want it to easily fit - with a clearance. But the part shape is quite complex.

I am trying to measure distance between two point using Measure tool. But it is only giving dimension up to two decimal precision and my dimension is smaller than 0.01. So it is showing only 0.00 in as distance between two selected point. How can I increase the precision level.distance_two points.PNG

I am working on a project where I need to determine the volume between two 3D scanned objects. Because 3D scan data is produced as a point cloud, I have used Meshlab to create a mesh and FreeCad to create a solid part. The solid part can then be imported into SolidWorks and the Tool -> Mass Properties option can determine the volume of that part. So far these steps work for finding the volume of one 3D scan data object.
