How many times do you see a great thread get trashed or hijacked for various reasons and I'll take the "Stand" and say I'm the worst for doing that.. So when I'm acting stupid tell me to trash it here, get it?? Rants - Cheers - Pet Peeves - or your Aunt Lilly, bring it.. (More then likely the dumbest thread anybody started, but I tried to keep it stupid, stupid) - The Forum Moderators rules still apply, no obscene pics, raunchy language and personal attacks, those will be reported and deleted if

Really bizarre behavior I'm seeing. When closing a part or assembly that has been modified (indicated by the * next to the file name), I am not prompted to save the changes and they are automatically discarded. This is normal behavior of the document is read-only, but I am experiencing this with non-read-only documents. I have to manually hit ctrl+S to save the document before exiting, otherwise all my changes are lost.

When I export my treehouse structure to an excel spreadsheet it only pulls from the custom properties not the configuration specific. Is there any way to get it to pull the configuration specific properties into the spreadsheet when it exports? I can verify that I have the same issue when exporting to excel.

I am trying to run SW17 on my new surface pro. It has Intel Iris Plus 640 GPU. I have been having issues with the OpenGL. I saw in a few forums where people would go in and change the regedit for solidworks hardware.

There had many user asking for a macro or program to do a save as copy of the selected component from an active assembly. I'm posting this in General section so that users that do not relate themselves to API section can also check this out. Seth Morgandid created a DLL macro (https://forum.solidworks.com/message/409288#comment-409288) but for some reason I was not able to run/use it.

When I run the save bodies feature it saves the bodies ( I actually see them saved in the designated folder ), but then I get a message saying "Failed to save [ ].SLDPRT Integrity checks have failed" and I don't get my assembly. Then it says updating and will go through this cycle continuously if I don't exit out with task manager or just interrupt it with close out solidworks.

So I am at my wits end with the bloody program! It crashes often both on my laptop and PC and each time I lose valuable time and money. I can replicate the crashes easily and I want to know what is causing them and how I can fix them. One example is when working with sheetmetal, often if I open up a part and unsuppress one of the unfold commands it will crash.

Coloring different revolved bosses I'm using 3 revolved boss/base components to make up 3 concentric cylinders, and wanted to color each cylinder differently, but seem to be having some trouble doing this. As an example, I wanted to color the outer cylinder grey, the middle cylinder yellow and the inner cylinder pale grey.

I recently installed the student-edition of Solidworks 2017, and noticed that it seemed to run quite slowly when designing parts. After running the SOLIDWORKS Rx system diagnostics tool, I noticed that SW is using my integrated GPU (Intel HD Graphics 4600) instead of my more powerful discrete GPU (AMD Radeon HD8970M). Is there any way to force SW to use the HD8970M instead of the HD Graphics 4600? Thanks very much.

For drag calculations, I'm trying to determine the cross sectional area of an assembly that would be exposed to the free stream velocity. As the object can rotate, the cross sectional area would change. I don't need the numbers for every orientation (would be nice), but if I was able to select some specific orientations and determine values, that would be the goal. Is SolidWorks capable of giving various cross sectional areas in this manner?
