Is there a way to assign material to an assembly? I know there is for parts, but i would like to show the assembly material in the drawing shaft The way I would show material in an assembly is to include a BOM with a material column.

Hi. What is the advantage of using large mode assembly? Can anyone tell me the difference, using this icon & offing.

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.

Move only attached parts I have built an assembly with several movable parts. If I move a part, SW only moves what is necessary to fulfill the constraints.

I have complex assemblies that I save as parts so I don't have to worry if something moved. the problem is the part file is larger (more megabytes) than the assembly. how can I do this and have file size much smaller? Have you tried different settings here?

In one of our large assemblys, zoom to fit zoomes way out, making the assy dissapear. The same happens with all standard views except Front and Back. As far as I can tell there are no parts placed far from the main assembly (tried drag-selecting and invert selecting). The three main planes look normal when activated.

Continous Path Mate Issue I am using solidworks 2017 and I want to be able to move the sphere along the blue selected path but it says "select a continuous group of entities." Is it possible to use these selected lines as a path mate for the sphere to follow and if so how do I make this possible?

I am conducting research into the influence of ergonomics (posture) in manual assembly productivity. I wish to model a manual input torque on a nut/screw, specifically representing a manual assembly process. I have observed the ratchet mechanism with lead-screw tutorial which represents a constant speed of the ratchet.

I frequently end up copying large assemblies/ drawings to update 1 or 2 components and change the name. When I "save as" a new name, I get prompted to save EVERY SINGLE SUB COMPONENT. I don't want to do this and I don't want to have to click "save" or "cancel" hundreds of times when I copy a large assembly. Is there a way to avoid this?

For as long as I can remember, SW would occasionally behave badly when rotating models with the standard middle-click drag operation. The entire model would disappear completely, as though the rotation center was way off in space somewhere. Currently, I'm using SW2016 SP2, and it happened a few times today on one particular assembly model, so I decided to investigate.

I have a pretty basic model made up of 4 different parts, its a 2d replication/view of a 3d model to simplify things a bit and it's used to help work out a few calculations and values for each part in relation to others. One of these parts revolves/rotates around a single point. Only issue is, that, this single point moves as the part rotates (as other parts move, which effect where the rotation point is).

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.

Here it says that there is a "Possible Interference" although the two components fit each other perfectly. Is there a way to get rid of this? I am using solidworks 2015.

I was wondering if you could tell me what the weird four-sided symbol in the attached image means? I took a look at other help topics defining some of the symbols found in the FMT but couldn't find this one. For reference, this is an assembly of four different sub-assemblies.
