I often need to select parts and sub assemblies "visually" directly from the screen and not from the feature manager. I would like to use the shift or ctrl buttons to run multiple screen selections.

Hello SOLIDWORKS Power-Users and welcome to the 6th WPUC! This week, even though some would say that we just have fun playing with assemblies, we will actually perform research that would help SOLIDWORKS Development and the SOLIDWORKS Community:

Modeling beveloid gear I have a complex gear, that I will probably have to make an exact CAD model of it, because I will need it for multiaxis CNC machine. From what I found out until now, I won't be able to make it with classical gear manufacturing methods, at least near my location.

I converted the step files to solidworks parametric model by using the Feature recognigation option, afterwards i make the assembly with using the recognized modelsi i defined the mates save the file and closed but when i opene the same assembly file next time i use force rebuild option (Ctrl+Q) i found whole mates in my assembly shows error and position of the parts will be changed once again i re mate the files and open again i found the same error this is very frustrated me please help some

I have an assembly, named ERU3, which has sub-assemblies and sub-sub-assemblies. Some of the sub-assemblies and parts are generic parts used in other assemblies, and some (those prefixed with ERU3) are specific to the ERU3 assembly. Some of the ERU3 parts have drawings.

Is there a way, especially in a large assembly, to have SolidWorks point out the location of a missing part? Meaning, what assembly is looking for the reported missing part? An example missing part message is below.

I am trying to model some wire. 4 conductors from a connector to another connector and twisted along the way. This means that the last 1cm or so from the connector it has to "untwist" and become linear so that it mates into a 1x4 2mm pitch connector. What I have is below.

Yesterday, I updated some shared parts - when I checked an assembly that my co-worker is in charge of, on my machine I show broken mates. On his, the mates are all fine, no red x's or red down arrows. A third engineer opened the assy and it is fine on his machine. we're running workgroup PDM. I only checked in the parts, never the assy.

I have investigated using grid systems but it just doesn't seem to be designed for the architectural industry. The company that I work for does a lot of architectural feature work such as stairs, awnings, canopies and lobbies. We need to follow a lot of architectural details and use the grid system setup by the project. We do most of our modeling fairly closely following the Skeleton Sketch Part Method for Large Assemblies.

I have a Control Panel with a logo with a frame around it, some letters positive, some negative. It's a "double nested extrusion" that I made myself a several months ago and thought, wow this is a great new feature because always before I had to make it in pieces. I made a copy to work on the next rev.

I find that the most efficient way to switch back and fourth between all the files I am working on is to use the 'browse open files' that is located in the tool bar under the "open" folder. I know that I can hit 'r' and bring up the 'browse recent documents' window, but that is usually populated with a bunch of stuff that I don't want to use and not the stuff that I am using (aka the files I have open). I would really like a quick shortcut to bring up the 'browse open documents' window, and I

I am creating a sheet metal box. I just realize I do not have Vent in Sheet Metal feature. Doing the manual cut is time consuming. What other option do I have?

I have a control panel with a logo that is apparently a double nested extrusion. I created it myself and thought at the time I love this new feature. I made a copy of the control panel to work on the next rev. and when I remove some of the lettering from Boss-Extrude2 suddenly the logo generates a "double nested extrusion" mssg. and the extrusion fails.

I'm working with several plastic parts imported from NX (Parasolid) and my job now is to modify them with Solidworks, so I have to find the best way to transform the part in order to make it parametric but taking advantage of the geometry already existing. I guess that Feature Recogniser should be my very best friend in this kind of situations, but I'm not taking a good advantage from it because the pieces are a bit complex and I'm not using it as deeply as possible I think...
