I need to place a basic dimension in a note, and pop-up pictures, but lets stick with the note issue. I'm forced to write notes like gone with the wind and they want 180 degrees basic in the note along with "equally spaced" and "as shown" (no $hi!). I cannot find how to place the basic box in the note if it's even possible.

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 installed Solidworks 2017 Student Version for the first time in my laptop. It works well, except that the Smart Dimension command does not function properly. When I select an entity to dimension it, the dimension lines will not be displayed when the cursor is moved in the graphics window. However, when I click a location to position the dimension value, the dialog box appears, allowing me to input the value and save it.

Is there a way to get the BOM to add up same profiles in different lengths, to a one total length? I have been creating som railings, where the frames are of different lengths, but they are made from the same materials.

OK, so I have this assembly (GA-02049) that I created (SW 2017 SP5) see attached pack and go zip file. I created a drawing of it, and for some reason the Helicoil isn't showing up in the drawing at all. Not in any views.

For every part we create, we use the Custom properties to define PART NUMBER and DESCRIPTION.1. SLDPRT Custom Properties.JPG Then inside a drawing you can use the TABLE BOM and select CUSTOM PROPERTY > PART NUMBER

Sheet Metal Bend Lines Always Showing Whenever I make changes to a sheet metal part, the bend lines show on bent parts in drawings and assemblies even though I've hid them. I don't want to turn off the sketch visibility because it will hide the bend lines for the flat patterns in my drawings.

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.

I have a "cast" part that requires machining - the machining has been done in a configuration format as this part is the same in three separate lengths so this should have made it easier to create all sequential drawings. What has occured is this - after the cast print was complete and the new configuration done for the machining and thus that drawing complete the cast drawing has changed to become the machined part. How do I separate the two or is this not a possibility. These part files were

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?

I have the BOM set to "Display configurations of the same part as separate items" , in which case all the Toolbox component quantities will show correctly. At the same time I have got other components (sub-assembly really, but could be a component as well), as pneumatic cylinders, which could have been used in different configurations (i.e. extended - retracted), but it this case I want them to be considered as same item.
