I'm having trouble exporting files to STEPs. SW doesn't ask me if I want to show suppressed or hidden components / bodies, but my colleague's computer does. (see the extra handle - Left = STEP, Right = SW Model)

We create step files to send to suppliers. Recently, one of our step files exported without the drafts included. We discovered this while reviewing the tool design. On this particular part, we do not get an accurate step file.

I have this DWG that I want to import and wrap around a base but every time I try importing and selecting and scaling my Solidworks freezes. I suspect it's due to the number of entities in the DWG. Is there some way to simplify or otherwise improve performance for this particular model so that I can carry on?

I noticed that there are macros for exporting reference geometry points into a excel file for x, y, and z.

Would one have to save the file out as a STP file with the new reference points inserted in the STP file and rerun this macro or is there an option for selecting the new coordinate system that can be

I have Solidworks 2018, when I open a .stp file from someone, everything comes in, in a "fixed" relationship. Right clicking the main assembly name will allow me to "Float" that particular component, however, all the other components are still "fixed" (f) and right clicking these individual components does not show the option for "Float". 1).

Is there a setting for the default "appearance" of an imported body? Recently, when I download STEP files and import them into SolidWorks 2015, they come in with a default appearance - gold. When my colleague imports the same file, it comes in with no appearances.

There is an old CAD problem related to digitizing existing objects, and I don’t know if Solidworks has solved it. The simple question is do we know of a tool where a point cloud can be converted into smart (parametric) 3D objects in CAD? Here is an example scenario:

I am trying to export all data from my solidworks part document onto an Excel file. I am able to easily generate the basic lengths and widths but I also need for the tolerances to be there. Is there any way I can auto populate the excel file with both? I have been doing research online but have only found manual input for doing the opposite of what I am trying to do.
