I often run across a situation where I have a purchased part that is modified. Example, a nylon rack that must be cut to length. I like to show the modified part and then overlay the stock part with thin phantom lines to better show the modification. There is alternate assembly view which only works for an assembly in an assembly drawing.

How do you currently address this problem, without creating a new configuration? Imagine you have an assembly with several display states. Each display state has various components hidden.

Having the component reference is very handy when working alongside the electrical folks, but when the BOM breaks it up into multiple lines it sure creates challenges when importing the BOM into an inventory system. Lots of manual work to recognize that you need to purchase 5 resistors instead of 5 individual items. Under Part configuration grouping do you have "Display as one item number" checked?

When we do the detailing of the counter bore the diameter and depth value is getting with 3 digit precision which I would like to alter. At present I will edit this manually on the property manager.

Can somebody tell me that if there will be a way to transfer sketches on drawing to sheet background ? I wanted to prepare a project template and I drew some skecthes on my drawing but i dont want to draw them again so i came up with that idea.

I'm creating a BOM that has multiple cables (sub-assemblies). Some of the cables are the same but take different routes, thus they are different assemblies and have different names, but I've given them the same company part number called "Number" along with "Description" and "MFG #". My question is: is it possible to have the BOM group all cables together that have the same "Number" property so that there's only one row with the appropriate quantity?

Attached is a PDF created from my SolidWorks drawing and a PDF created from that same drawing saved to AutoCAD. As you can see, two views are almost completely missing. What would cause that? The model is admittedly rather massive;

I opened the drawing attached to this assembly and it came up with an odd issue. The lines in the attachment that appear to be hidden lines shouldn't be that way. When I open the subassembly that contains just the tank weldment, there aren't any issues. Hidden lines are, of course, removed;

HQ sent me a new drawing template to use. I can't open it. Is it possible because the template version is newer than the version I use?

All models and drawings have been done in SW. Vendor wants drawings with a specific title block, new part numbers, and in catia drawings. (I have SW2017 and Catia v5 on the same machine)

Mainly top view. Was trying to set up some drawing templates and I ended up with top view that is way out of size for the assembly. Top view size carried over from drawing to model, so now zoom full ends up with pin prick of a dot for top view. I have checked for dangling items and rogue lines but there is nothing.

I am making a closed assembly of different part by taking reference of inner volume. My inner volume is the main driving feature. When i edit or change inner volume size parts in assembly get automatically updated but when i see the drawings all dimensions are old and those are not updated. Is there any way by which dimension in drawings get updated automatically.

The drawing is done but the wrong template was chosen at the start. Right-click on "Sheet", "Browse" to new sheet format template. Apply changes.

Is it possible tolinka model property, note, or dimension to the process text of a weld symbol? That's an interesting question, and unfortunately it doesn't appear to work (2017 sp3). This looks like you would have to submit an enhancement request to get this to work how you want.
