I have had to endure this problem for a few years now. I have been able to do a work around by not using a design table in these conditions. Situation now is I am having major issues with BOM Configuration Column's Part Numbers appearing out of numerical order.

Design tables are not working properly in 2017. If I "open design table in a new window", it will crash. A work-around is to first open it within solidworks (not a separate excel window), *then* open it within excel the second time.

Desire:Generate Drawing Title Block from Configuration Specific attributes taken from Design Table I have created a number part configurations, driven off values from a design table. (I've figured out how to do that part). In addition to pulling dimensional information for driving configuration creation from an Design Table, can I link non-sketch driving data to my Drawing Title Block?

I am struggling with a convenient way to approach this problem. Any help is appreciated, I am not super familiar with design tables so other approaches are also welcome. I have a rectangular bar that, depending on its width (lets say 5" vs 10" wide), gets another row of bolt holes added to alongside the existing set of bolt holes.

I am wondering how big the topic of design automation is for you? In SolidWorks we have built in functionality like equations and configurations that help you to automate your design. But apart from those capabilities there are 3rd party products with superior capabilities and I would like to know who uses a design automation product and why.

Define A, B, T in Properties-> Configuration specific, establish equation make dimensions equal to A, B, T, then make a design table defines $PRP@A, $PRP@B, $PRP@T. The value in Properties-> Configuration specific change with configuration, but not change in equation.

I set up a custom property tab through the "Property Tab Builder" that takes input from designers, basically filling out a gear data table. I also had a sketch block that was basically just a spline profile so that designers could insert the block and then edit it to put their own values in and then use an extrude cut or swept cut to make the teeth. What I want to know is: Is there a way to make sketch blocks pull the properties from whichever configuration the part was in when the block was

My company has several applications where it requires the operator to cut an extrusion to custom length before the diameter of that extrusion is modified to fit on its support (eg: Heat shrink, swaging process, etc). I already know of design table configuration and of smart component feature, however, I would like to combine the two to be able to specify the cut length and for the component to adjust (automatically) its dimension (diameter) to its support. This is where I fail to see how to

aka: Configurations - a ClusterFlip of Suppressed Features I just want to know if I understand things correctly about Configurations. I am not applying this to assemblies, btw. (It seems like most posts about configurations are with respect to assemblies.) Most of my work has been modeling parts from existing drawings rather than component design, so go easy on me.
