Is there a way to get the normal vector of a face relative to the global coordinate system of an assembly? I am looping through components, getting the bodies, then faces from the top level of an assembly, but when I use the Surface.PlaneParams, or Face.Normal, it is relative to that component's coordinate system, not the assembly coordinate system. You will have to multiply the face normal vector by the components rotation matrix with respect to the assembly coordinate system.

When using the Admin Image Tool and using the Deploy Automatically function, my status is not updating. On the client computer, it is creating a log entry at the end of the install which reads, "This client does not have write permission to the logs directory:SW17_SP3.064bitlogs\SBDEV-ENOW7.Notice the double back slash at the end of the path between "logs" and the hostanme.Does anyone know what is generating this path? Is there supposed to be a double backslash there? Is anyone else's

When looking at the reports in the report manager there are row numbers. Those row numbers do not appear on the drawing when you generate them. I'd like them to.

I have spent a long time trying to model the plastic base of an RC race car to send it off to be quoted. I did not however know that for a sldprt file to be considered not an assembly it had to also only be one body. So i blissfully unclicked 'merge bodies' for all of the extrudes (ending up with around 200 bodies before i manged to combine some) as this made my mirrors work and life generally easier.

Is it possible to create a PDF that only has bookmarks of the drawing pages not the drawing views in the PDF bookmark tree? SOLIDWORKS 2018 has a setting called "Include Bookmarks" which you can turn off. Before that, there is no control.

I've added cosmetic threads into individual pipe parts which are visible in the piping assembly model file, however when I go to make the drawing the cosmetic thread are not visible. I feel like it's something simple I'm missing however I can't seem to get the cosmetic thread with call out to show up in the assembly drawing. ,cosmetic threads

I'm trying to figure out a way to create a surface (or solid) using the two curved sketches on top of my part. Both parts are equation driven (right curve: y=1.12717*sqr(x) left curve: y=1.04779*sqr(x)) and I have no idea how to create a surface or solid with the boundary, loft, or sweep feature. I would like the top of my part to look like this:

Can someone tell me the difference between workflow action / send email vs notification send email uses your email host (if you set it up that way, in Message system) vs Notification is inside PDM. We are using the Notifications to keep the automated emails we already get separate from our PDM Notifications.

I'm sure some of you have already noticed that we've recently pushed a large update to the Cloud Library for SOLIDWORKS Visualize. We took all of the appearances in SOLIDWORKS CAD, and created from scratch, almost 700 new Visualize appearances! These are grouped into the same, easy-to-digest sub-folders that are used in core SOLIDWORKS.

I have an issue on one of my machines where the user is asked repeatedly to log in to the PDM. The only place I can think of to set this so it maybe won't come up is in the Vault Settings in the Admin tool. But my question is why this would be a problem sometimes, and other times, it works fine (doesn't ask to log in, or only asks periodically)?

If I right click on a file in PDM and select Notify a colleague it does not include a hyperlink to the file location in the message. Is there a way to auto-generate this hyperlink when I create the notification? I thought this was working at one time... maybe I'm going crazy and it never has. Any thoughts?
