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.

How many times do you see a great thread get trashed or hijacked for various reasons and I'll take the "Stand" and say I'm the worst for doing that.. So when I'm acting stupid tell me to trash it here, get it?? Rants - Cheers - Pet Peeves - or your Aunt Lilly, bring it.. (More then likely the dumbest thread anybody started, but I tried to keep it stupid, stupid) - The Forum Moderators rules still apply, no obscene pics, raunchy language and personal attacks, those will be reported and deleted if

Really bizarre behavior I'm seeing. When closing a part or assembly that has been modified (indicated by the * next to the file name), I am not prompted to save the changes and they are automatically discarded. This is normal behavior of the document is read-only, but I am experiencing this with non-read-only documents. I have to manually hit ctrl+S to save the document before exiting, otherwise all my changes are lost.

Creation of Design Table is by passing this “dimension to add window”. Is there any setting to bring it back? Jive Software Version: 2016.3.9.0, revision: 20171215204634.b96715f.release_2016.3.9

mirror part orientation Not sure if this is a bug or not, but I'm trying to mirror a part in my drawing, and none of the 4 orientations give me the desired result. The only way to make it work is to select "Create opposite hand version" which creates a new part file, even though it is a simple flat plate (left and right should be exact same part).

I am working on a project to render a SolidWorks assembly and show it in a home environment. To save time, I suggested looking on TurboSquid to see if they could find something they liked. Here is a link to what they purchased:

I got a problem regarding in contact stress between two cylinders(static simulation in solid works). When i run the simulation and looking at the results of contact pressure (see in vector plot), the max stress is not exactly in axial direction. The maximum stress in axial direction is achieved when the mesh size is above 2mm but the results are not matching with the calculations, with fine mesh at contact location can match the calculation but the axial stress is not in center exactly. Any

Did you know that Solidworks rescinded the ability to activate your license on two separate machines? This was super handy when you had a portable laptop and an office computer setup. Or, some call it a "home" license, allowing you to activate at the office and at home. Now we have to transfer our license between the computers or purchase an additional license for the second machine.

Modeling thermal path through screw I am trying to figure out how to model the heat path through a screw head and into the bodies that the screw is joining together, mainly being a conduction heat transfer problem. My problem is that when I use the toolbox 100 deg screw, simulation obviously says there is interference between the screw and the body it goes into.

I am a student member of an SAE Baja team. We have a 4 axis plasma table on the way that should be able to do our tube notching off of the cad models. In order to do so we need a flattened or unrolled version of the tubes that can then be exported as a DXF file. Below are images of an example tube and the desired result.

When I export my treehouse structure to an excel spreadsheet it only pulls from the custom properties not the configuration specific. Is there any way to get it to pull the configuration specific properties into the spreadsheet when it exports? I can verify that I have the same issue when exporting to excel.

I just can't believe there is no way to reuse an adapted mesh generated during a multi-day run. Can someone tell me how to save and reuse a large mesh? (no change to geometry).

Imported step file doesnt show colors Recently I have tried to import several .step files of Printed Circuit Board Assemblies into SolidWorks that were created by our Electrical Engineer in Altium. When the file is imported, everything goes as expected except the apperance of the PCA is entirely gray (the default SolidWorks gray) instead of the colors I am expecting.

I have a list of files (Over 100 SW files) which had been outsourced to manufacture. I need this to be highlighted in those respective drawings. I thought of using "Drawn_By=OUTSOURCED" in the parts so it will appear without any change in drawings.

I have been looking at every PDM admin related question and discussion I can get my hands on to learn what other PDM admins are doing, and find whats good and bad or things that cause issues. I have created this discussion to hopefully start a valuable discussion that others who are just starting as PDM admins can look at to learn from others experience and expertise. Feel free to post links to valuable topics that have already been discussed. Topics to discuss here:

I'm trying to figure out a way to get the Punch ID from a sheet metal forming tool without using a punch table. I can find the feature itself using GetNextFeature, but according to the help files there is no available interface for this feature. Ideally I'd like to select the feature and get the PunchID directly, but if it's not possible I could settle for adding a custom property for each form tool's Punch ID (if that's even possible either).
