Just that. When I start a drawing packet for a multibody sheetmetal part, when I select body, then flatten part.... oh wow does it hate that. takes 2 minutes minimum of spinning blue ring for a part with 1 bend... upwards of 10 for something with a few more normal cuts and up to 4 bends. Most are convert from solid sheet metal parts, with features put in them afterwords.

I swear I'm not crazy, but this thing just started popping up on me any time I open a part from an assembly, make a change, and then close the part window. It's super annoying. Like...I get it. I know how the rebuild button works.

So we've just upgraded from 2016 to 2018, and when testing out the Advanced Hole feature, I get this message. We have our toolbox linked to our vault and we ran the upgrade tool to the vault files earlier in the week. Does anyone know what the name of the file is that it is looking for here? We have our standard hole callout .txt file in this location, but I am guessing the Advanced Hole is looking for a different name?

I created a drawing for a part a few months ago and all was well. Today when I go to re-open it, I find that in three of my four dimensioned views, one "end" of each dimension has attached itself to the edge of the sheet instead of the desired part edge. Dragging does not correct the issue. The view that has not been affected is a detail view of one of the affected views.

Hi all, my colleagueAmen Allah Jliliand I are exhibiting at SolidWorks World 2018 this year. As you might know, each year at SWW they hold a "model mania" contest where the fastest SolidWorks modelers can receive a prize. We wanted to do an equivalent "macro mania" and wanted your feedback on our rules and what you think would be reasonable SOLIDWORKS API programming puzzles for beginner and intermediate-level SOLIDWORKS API programmers.

I'm designing a part that will have some adaptive-3D machined components to it. The part will end up fitting a curved piece of plexi glass with a specified radius. I'm really just looking to see if there is a better way to design the current part I have as this is the only way I know of doing what I'm trying to achieve. Any tips and suggestions for an easier to work with design would be greatly appreciated.

I'm still plodding away mucking around with learning Surfacing. Like most have done, I'm doing the Camaro tutorial and have ventured away from the written instruction a little and added some surfaces that weren't included in the tutorial. I got to a stage where I thought it's about time to knit it all together and do some filleting.

Does anyone know how to delete/stop the first blank row in the revision table from coming in? It is especially annoying when trying to fix a revision table that has 2 blank rows at the top, why can't we delete rows but we can delete columns?
