I'm after a solution that I'm sure exists already however I can't currently find one. I have been modelling within an assembly using the top down technique pulling references from other parts in context. All this is fine and the initial Assembly and parts all work well.

As a new SolidWorks user for the past 8 months, I have consistently struggled using equations to implement my design intent into my parts and assemblies. One problem I was having, which is also listed as a problem for other users in a number of posts, is the lack of consistency of file referencing when using the Copy Tree or Pack and Go functions. Users complain that some equations reference the original model rather than the copy, and there appears to be no rhyme or reason to which components

I can't seem to get this add-in working in 2015. The latest versions of the 3Dconnexion's drivers (10.2.2 & 10.2.3) gets me a blank toolbar which makes setting the buttons impossible. I can manipulate the model but that's all. These newer versions do not work in 2013 or 2014 because the buttons do not work and trying to configure them gives me this dialog;

How can I connect two rectangular blocks per say? If I try to connect two parts that are not circular with pins, I get errors. My application is to connect two rectangular blocks with pins, do I have to have a drill in the parts for it to work? or does solidworks know that it should be drilled?

Please see the attached model. I can use the Intersection Curve command to create a circle of intersection between the Surface-Revolve2 and Surface-Revolve3 features, but it will not work between either of them and the Surface-Revolve4 feature. What did I do wrong?

Okay so I have been working on this mouse for weeks now and in particular the top half. I have the base made and it seems to be all good. I have made so many different attempts at the top but all have failed me when trying to thicken etc.

I want to make the straps on my helmet. I'm going to make them out of nylon, but that isn't an option in the materials. If the specific material that you want isn't listed, then you can add it pretty easily.

After moving my PART files into a new directory called "Parts", and my DRAWING files into a directory called "Drawings", obviously the links will be broken when i open the DRAWING file. Instead ofReplace, Is there another way to reconnect the PARTS to the DRAWING file? I am hoping there is a simple way to simply change the file path in a preference somewhere instead of "Replacing" all the components.

When studying a weldment or assembly is there a method to get deflection for a given component (beam) where the results are isolated from the deflections of the rest of the study? Displacement is a default result plot, but that result is cumulative. I would like to be able to see the deflection (flex) of a particular piece in the study relative to its relaxed state prior to being loaded. In the particular case that I am currently working on I have a 5 bar mechanism.

My problem is mainly with Assemblies with multiple derived configurations. When I go to check in an assembly with 3 tiers of configurations, so a configuration derived from a configuration derived from the origional model, it always gives me a warning saying my assmbly is not rebuilt with (Configuration x, y and z) in brackets after. Does this mean I can never have a newly rebuilt assembly like this checked in?

I have been finding lots of different macros to apply appearance and/or materials. However the material of the part must be known before, and the appearance is only an RGB number. I'm trying to figure out how to apply a .p2m appearance file to a part, based on the already applied material. I was hoping to do a lookup and an If/Then action.

I'm in the process of automating DXF creation at a sheet metal fabrication company. I found this macro (https://forum.solidworks.com/message/578524?q=assembly%20dxf%20pdf) on the forums to be the closest one to suiting my needs, which is to export a DXF of the flat pattern of each sheet metal part in a top level assembly and create a PDF of the associated part drawing. After adding a command in the macro to include the bend center lines in the export, since this macro didn't, it's ALMOST doing
