Our students produce a lot of 3d prints last year and the problem is that with every "save as STL" theyneed to give in their settings for the STL file (deviation, tolerance and angle). Is there a way to save these settings into the part template, so that every time they perform a translation the same settings are used. Those settings are system options which should be automatically saved between sessions.

I measure building exteriors with a total station that exports a DXF file. If I import the DXF file the text labels for the data points show up fine, but the actual points do not. What is it about the points that allows them to appear in AutoCAD but not in Solidworks?

We just switched to SW 2017 this week and I'm having trouble running FeatureWorks on customer's inventor files. Yesterday I tested it out on a part and it seemed run just fine. However, this morning I imported several parts and now "Recognize features.." in the FeatureWorks menu is greyed out for every model I open. Is there an extra step we now have to perform in 2017?

Our spread sheet for parts and assemblies is not completed and now is late to add them one by one to the spread sheet. just wondering is there any way to add parts from folder to spread sheet? With this spreadsheet, you can read files from directory and batch rename them or do what you want with the file names.

IGES Import Feature Names I recently had some scanning work done in which each plane, point and cylinder was labelled with something like "front left wheel inner" and so on. I received the data in an IGES file and when importing it into SolidWorks I found that the labels were not included and every feature was simply labelled "surface-importedX" where X is a number from 1 to 186 (i.e. the number of individual surfaces in the file).

I know, it might be a bit late to ask anyone for advices on an outdated version of Solidworks, I cincerely hope though that someone has encountered the same issues and might have a solution at hand. I hope to stay on this 2013 until the downtimes in the oil & gas start whispering out. What happens is that whenever I import a STEP or IGES file into SW, I have to stay with the part, or assy as an imported part.

I requested a CAD file from our vendor and he said that they have been sending out STL files because they seem to translate to everyone's different CAD systems. Ok, I'll give it a try. I got a file with over 500 surfaces in it. Impressive, but it is way more than I want to dump into an assembly.

Right now I have an assembly with part dimensions linked to an external equation text file. I'm trying to duplicate the entire assembly including the equation file and part references to this new file. No matter how I do this, each part within the assembly remains linked to the original equation file, not the new one that was created with the pack and go feature. I have also tried saving the assembly as a copy from solidworks, simply copying the folder outside of solidworks explorer, and some

Importing *.igs from inspection data This is something that's kind of irritating simply because it's a feature that works really well in Inventor but not at all in Solidworks. I do a lot of reverse engineering with portable CMM's.

I created a DXF file that we would use to water jet cut a panel and then a separate file to laser etch some text to the panel. The cut file for the panel stayed dimensionally correct (1.07 x 1.02) but the file for the laser etching would change the height only (from 1.02 to .98). Does anyone have an idea of what I can do to keep this from happening in the future?
