Using Solidworks 2016, in a drawing, is there a way to add a bolt hole pattern centerline and the corresponding circular centermarks similar to the attached file? I've attached an image I made using an old Solid Edge version which has a direct command icon for doing that.

I wouldn't think you need to dimension the molds because the people at the shop can just look at the drawings for the parts. I would think you only need an assembly drawing to see how all the molds fit together. Also if this is true what do I do if it's a one piece mold. Can you have a one piece assembly?

How to open Future Version file in Old Version. From SW2012 SP 5 you'll have the option to do this but for now there is no direct option. The only way is to get the files converted in iges, step, etc. format and then open in lower versions.

I'm a novice in SW, and dont really understand how to save a title block as a template and one that will update certain info across all the files different sheets? And Make that a template to open when I create a drawing from an assembly? I am updating every sheet individually right now, when I know there has to be an easier way.

I am trying to optimize the BOM to streamline the info that I need. There are parts that I don't need to make a BOM for so I want to exclude them. I right click on the part and select Component Properties from the menu. On that menu I then select the check box for exclude from Bill Of Materials and hit ok.

Sometimes I don't want the hatching of section view. And it's a lot of trouble to manually remove every part that gets cut by them. Is there a way to make section views without the hatching?

I found a Discussion (Dimension arrow missing its tail?) that addresses the same problem, without a solution. I seem to remember another Discussion in the last month or two where it was fixed, but I can't find it. Am I imagining things, or does anyone have any ideas?

I right click and select edit sheet format so I can put information into the title block. Then I double clicked the weight to edit it. I wasn't able to enter the weight or edit any text. I try to go back to editing the sheet, but the only option when I right click is clear selections.

I am having trouble with the Automatic Border. I have a sheet format that I have used in the past without issue in my drawings. Now in Solidworks 2016 if I go into the properties of the drawing and change the sheet scale the Automatic Border is added and I have 2 borders.

I right click on my BOM table and save it as an Excel spreadsheet (either xls or xlsx.) When I open this spreadsheet, it has "Sharing" turned on by default. This disables many features in Excel, but it was easy to turn off sharing, so not a big deal. In the latest update, Excel has eliminated the ability to turn off "Sharing" so now it is a big deal.

For example, I have a part that is a weldment. A single piece of tube. When this is brought into a BOM it assigns the part a number (31) and then the weldment a number (32), when in reality its the same thing. Can I combine the two without manually editing the BOM?

I have a flange that I have designed to mate with a 4" male NPT (tapered). I have never had to designate anything other than standard threads before, so I am at a loss here. I had a simple callout notating " 4" NPT TAPERED " - my co-engineer marked it and said that I needed to indicate thread engagement as well.

I would like to enhance a picture using rendering/photoView360 options. How can I import a picture, let said, from a JPEG format and do that? If I understand correctly, I don't think it's capable of directly enhancing pictures like you're asking.

After all of the previous truck loads of problems associated with using Draftsight and it's terrible activation procedure, i am now plagued with more problems. One user on Windows 10 Pro x64 developed a bug where Draftsight would open then immediately close after the splashscreen, then another user developed the same problem. Unable to fix the problem even after completely eradicating everything related to Draftsight on the PC - including the SWActivation folder in the registry i am still faced

I have tried to reinstall sp2 on different computers, but with the same result:-( We have had a lot of our customers also experiencing this issue, and whilst we haven't narrowed down the exact cause yet, we have found a workaround: (If you would like the files to DraftSight 2017 SP0 drop me a message, as these are no longer hosted publicly)

Let's say you create a drawing and dimension it with ordinate dimensions. Some of the dimensions are close to one another and the leaders jog. Now you change the drawing scale and there's no longer any reason for the jogs. How do you straighten out the leaders?
