First, I am using 2017 SP2.0 (installed 3.0EV yesterday to see if it would solve the problem - no luck) and we are running Win 7. I have a moderately sized assembly (4000 parts) that is giving me some erratic behavior when creating a drawing. The majority of the assembly is a reference sub-assembly, 25 of the total parts are not of the sub-assembly.

Is it possible to set detailed part number as the default on a BOM so when you insert it you don't have to select it every time? If you set the starting number (in the options after selecting the instance to associate with the BOM) it will remember it.

Welcome to part two in my quest to find out how SolidWorks users create drawings. Part one can be found here and the responses there were already enlightening, it showed no two companies create their drawings in the same way. I've now created a short survey with 10 questions to dig a little deeper.

I recently discovered that if you insert a BOM in a SW2017 Drawing, drawing views of the components in the BOM inserted afterwards will automatically be linked to it. People have been asking for something like this for a long time, so it's a great enhancement, but somehow it didn't make it into the "What's New" document (or at least if it did I can't find it). Deepak Gupta did some further checking and discovered that this only works if there's only one table in the Drawing (no other BOM's or

I'd like to make a drawing table, which shows certain custom variables but so that it shows all configurations' values (support reaction /weight) in same table. This is what I've done this far:

While I love the "auto" section feature now available (not having to sketch a line to make a section), where in the settings are the adjustment defaults for the auto section line? It's too long. I need to make the section line end closer to the part - it's taking up real estate

I want to insert a bend table into my sheet metal drawing with the outer bend radius, but by default the SW template seems to show the Inner Radius. I tried to change this but there doesn't seem to be an option available.

We prefer to user alphabetical naming for section views and numbered naming for detail views. Is it possible to somehow change the default naming of detail views in the SolidWorks settings? Tags: none (add) detail views

When we do drawings of assemblies that include wiring or hydraulic hoses, we add in dummy parts with the wire or hose part number to populate the item in the drawing BOM. We then create the assembly drawing, and import from Draftsight the 2D schematic to use on page 2 of our assembly drawing. In Solidworks, we balloon the schematic and, typically, overwrite the text in the balloon to match the BOM.

Is it possible to link Custom Property value from the Part/Assembly, to the Custom Property Table of the Drawing? If you mean under File > Properties for Drawing, then there is no direct way. You'll have to use a macro to update that.

I do not ever want parts to align when I bring them into a drawing. It is nothing but a time consuming pain to have to go back and break the ASSUMED alignments that solidworks thinks you want.

The title says it really, wanting a note to have a relation to a part drawing so if i move that view the note/s will follow. Click on a drawing view to activate it and then start and place the note. You can also cut/copy an existing note, then activate the required view and paste the note.

Incorrect shaded exploded view I have been having problems with an assembly's exploded view showing up incorrectly when inserted into other things. The current iteration of this is when the exploded view of the assembly shown below (figure 1) is inserted into a drawing as "Current Model View", the explode is shown correctly/incorrectly depending on if the drawing view is "Hidden Lines Removed"
