I work with a lot of large assemblies that contain multiple sub-assemblies. Whenever someone changes the hidden/shown state of a part from the top level assembly, it over-rides the hidden/shown state of that part in the sub-assembly (a part can be hidden in the top level, but when the sub-assembly is opened it will still be shown). The problem this sometimes presents, is that the sub-assembly loses control, so any display states that are setup in the sub-assembly no longer work correctly, which

I'm very new to this and working my way thru the tutorials. There is one where you make a little knob with a bore with keyway in the middle of the back of the knob. Everything goes great until I insert the bore from the library. I am not able to align the keyway or center the knob nor align the keyway.

I believe that my no solve mode on my sketches never turns off (I can't drag using the corner of lines and my lines that should be coincident with one another break apart when I drag) even when I toggle it on and off through tools->sketch settings->no solve mode. It's especially bad when I use the polygon tool and I can still drag the lines away form one another.

I have already submitted this as an enhancement request, but I'm kind of perplexed to see that SolidWorks does not have a blend curve command. If you are doing surfacing work, this is an awesome command to have. Al you have to to is pick two edges and the dialogue with pop up with a blend preview. you can set continuity, look at the curvature adjust the weighting of the continuity and when the preview looks good you accept the result.

I am creating 3D sketches in an assembly with entities in the middle of the parts. When I try to add a dimension to a sketched line I can't place the dimension because if I click SW tries to select the face that is behind my cursor instead of just placing the dimension where I have it. You can see in my screenshot below that SW highlights a face orange and if I click (intending to just place the dimension I have created) it will instead try to add that face to the dimension selections. Is there

In a sketch I select the split entities tool and then I "click on the sketch entity to split" ....and nothing happens. Its seemed like the pointer is snapping to end points so I make sure snap is off and.... still nothing happens. I've tried other sketches etc and still not work.

This is driving me crazy and I thought it should be easy. I mate this rack and pinion assembly per the help file and I am at a lost as to why the pinion does not move after mating. The problem stems from conflicting parallel/perpendicular faces.

Hi, I am trying to cut a scroll pattern on a surface. I draw a spiral line and create a circle sketch starting from the spiral. I wanna the swept cut follow the spiral path but I never have the actual cut line following it. I also tried put the circle sketch in some other positions along the spiral.

I'm trying to setup a few derived configurations from the "Modify Configuration" dialog and i got it all setup, changed some dimensions and that all works fine. However, now for a few of them i'd like to change them back to following the default (or direct parent configuration of the derived configuration). I can't seem to figure out how to do this and make the corresponding cell in the table go from "yellow" back to "white" indicating it is following the parent. I can change the dimensions

I've got sheet metal parts. They're not weldments. It's real nice that SW does the Cut-List for them. I can FINALLY get the flat blank to auto-update on the print by referencing one of the fields in there.

I started using SW 2017 a couple of days ago and notice something I haven't seen in 2016. Please take a look at the attached visual aid.First, features don't have the children sketches absorbed in them. Usually you go to the feature in the tree and expand the feature to see what sketch it is using. Second, If it is a sketch used up above, the dynamic reference visualization arrows will point to that sketch,but as you can see from the image the dynamic visualization arrows are not pointing to the

I need to model 1/2" tape coming off of a 12" reel and going through a series or rollers. Now this doesn't sound like too big of a deal. But the tricky part is that I need to have the tape twist 90 degrees as the rollers change it's direction. What's the best way to do this?
