I add new configurations to my models. There are times I would like to reorder it in the configuration manager. Example, I add different sizes with an associated -01, -02 etc number. Then I may add a size with a next dash number.
Configuration specific design table update problems I am having a problem which is sending me round the bend. I apologise because I know this has been asked before however I have read all of the threads regarding weight updating problems and I still cannot get a list of weights for all of my configurations which is updated.
Does anyone know if is possible to filter the configuration list of a library part when you place the item? Apologies for bringing up Autodesk, but Inventor has an option when creating the equivalent of a design table, to set certain dimensions as 'keys'. I am wondering if there is something similar in Solidworks.
Wondering if anyone can provide an explanation and ideally a solution to this problem. I have a externally linked excel spreadsheet to my model in solidworks as a design table. it is saved as a .xls (97-2003 Worksheet) as i have a Macro module with the spreadsheet required to determine the some of the results that form part of the design table.
I have just started using the design table feature in Solidworks and can navigate through different configurations with no problem, I am just confused when I come to generate a 2D drawing with dimensions and notes etc. I would like to be able to have a 2D drawing pre-populated with the dimensions and relevant notes so when I change the configuration of the part 3D model, it changes the value within in the dimensions and notes in the 2D drawing. Is this possible, if it is how do I do this?
I use DIN9861 punches all the time, and I would like to create a design table for this part and use the configuration publisher to make it more convenient to work with. There are almost 800 different configurations for this part.
I just upgraded to 2017 from 2015. I am trying to add a configuration to a part from the config manager tree. I used to be able to right click and select from a large dropdown list with many functions. Now i get this:
Each part in my assembly has a custom property called PART_NUMBER, how do I get that property to show in the design table inside the Assembly? Or any other custom property for that matter? Sorry that is not currently possible.
I have spent many many hours trying to get it to work. Single part with either multiple config's and attached display states or a single config and multiple display state. Attach a appearance "clear glass" selecting [appearance filter]
Hi, I have been asked to parametrize a design using equations to generate different configurations of the design. I have parameters that are only related to parts for which i used configuration (design table) and i have parameters that are related to patterns of the overall assembly these parameters are dependent on each other. So i used 20 equations that involve if and iif statements. and 10 others that involve feature suppression. My design includes more than 500 parts.
I've got a part that has many possible configurations. It's anodized, so under each config it also has a "Raw" derived config. The drawing for each config has 2 pages, one Anodized and one Raw. I'm trying to have this scenario:
We just updated MS Office to 2016, not I cannot insert a design table, or read/edit a table inserted before MSO 2016. I am running 64 bit SW 2014. I have rebooted with no luck. Has anyone else resolved this?
The referenced dimensions in the original equations for specific configurations in my design table keep swapping with each other (i.e. the equation for D1 would swap with the equation for D2 etc.). Any way to keep these fixed? I also changed them for the specific configurations back to normal, but they would reset after going back to them from another configuration.
Just upgraded to 2017 and now all the configurations in part files are sorted by History by default. We use configurable files for bearings, fasteners, etc and to select the configuration we want to use in an assembly is horrible. So far it looks like we need to check out, open, change the sort order, save and check back in every file to get this corrected.
SW2010SP2.0 (with both hotfixes), Win 7 x64, Microsoft Office 2007 SP1 I can no longer create a new Design Table. All the button clicks are there, the Design Table Property Manager has all the usual options (Blank, Auto-create, etc.)....
