I need to export some models to a MoI user and am sending them STEP files. I would like to change the origin and have created a coordinate system and chosen it in the export options, but it's not working. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong? Thanks Using 2016

Are there any ways to export your SW drawings as DXF and PDF's automatically and for them to automatically update when you change the drawing? I'm thinking you could using macros and you would need a macro to run when you either close or save the drawing...

So I am trying to translate 3D sketches that are circular. When translated to igs cad, some of the circles go missing or partly missing. The only solution we have found is using splines, which take forever. Any ideas?

Customer sent me an assy from NX using native format. I can open the individual .prt files and some of those come in as assy's, but the upper level part, which has the same .prt extension as the rest of the parts, "will not open compressed UG files." Is there a way around this?

I use solidworks 2013. Now have to convert an assembly file and part file to CATIA models with detail design trees to our customers. So they can check it in CATIA which they use. Tried to send them .stp and .igs format.

I'm having trouble importing a complete assembly from SolidWorks into Mastercam. What I want is a full wireframe along with the solid bodies, but when trying to open a solidworks file directly from Mastercam I get a 'Cannot find Parasolid data in Solidworks file' error when trying to open it with MCX2 MR2, and 'Only Assemblies from Solidworks 2003 and later can be read' error with MCX3. If I use a parasolid the solid bodies come in fine but only part of the wireframe is correctly loaded.

I'm trying to export a 3D PDF of an assembly with two configurations, open and closed. I did not use the Explode command because it's rotated around at an arbitrary angle which would be tough to do with the explode steps to better show the inside of the model. Right now I only get the active configuration.

When converting a 2d drawing of semi-circles into a DXF file the arcs are converted into a bunch of small straight lines instead of one continuous arc. Is there a way to keep it intact? What are you using to view your DXF?

I'm pretty used to Solidworks, and I used it extensively while getting my degree, but now that I'm graduated I don't have access to it anymore. Anyways, I have a prospective boss who wants to test my Solidworks skills. Fusion 360 is readily available for free for now, as unfortunately Solidworks is out of my personal price range at the moment, so I'll be using that.

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.

We have a bunch of Anvil files in our archive, and I was wondering if anyone out there had experienced converting them to Solidworks. I'm figuring that I'll probably have to go through a DXF intermediate when they are needed... and I need one of them this week.
