(This may have been asked before, if so, if you kindly led me to a pertinent discussion I would appreciate it. I have read several threads that didn't particularly go where I wanted.) I am working on a part (or components) that consists of 4 pieces, and doing top-down methods for the first time.

Appearances Having a small issue with Appearances. When I apply it to my part at assembly level, it changes a pastel color that I don't want. Even if I have this option turned of in the 'Edit Material', it still shows anyway.

I can't open the 3D model from McMaster-Carr because I older version of SW. I selected the step file but don't know how to save Parasolid (*.x_t) file to part file. There is no options for me to choose. Thank you

I was under the impression that when your drawing screen was in the 4 view port configuration, when you edit a spline handle it was supposed to move co planar to the active view port ONLY. That doesn't seem to be the case. When I move a spline handle in the "right" view port I see it get whacked out in the "top" view port.

So I had this tricky sheet metal part to model for a customer . I couldn't seem to build the part and then add the cut out on the top with out errors (This feature can not be unbent). So I made pre cuts to make them separate flanges running on the same plane. if you have a look at the pictures of the part you can see I have these 3 flanges coming off the one over 90° bend. Then I add the next flange at 90° and tried to merge this area all together with drawing in the relief . but if I merge

I made a frame using c-channel and all I get to show up in the cut list is "material ". When I specify the matirial all I get is "AISI 1020" in the description and length fields. There doesn't seem to be any fields that calls out the actual beam size or length. Am I missing something?

Ok, so my coworker was trying to make an extrude off of another planar surface by offsetting the whole sketch (a rectrangle with fillet corners) by 0.0001". The preview shows what you would expect (a shelf of .0001"), but when the model rebuils, SW decided to just merge it into one! So, really there is a tiny taper, like a loft. Very weird!

I'm trying to dimension two circles, and when I put the dimensions on, the following happens (the circles are 2" and 2.5" - the numbers are correct, but the lines aren't to the edge of the circles): When I take out the break view, they instantly "snap" into the position I want them to appear:

I saw a video (I don't remember which one- or what it was about) but the person doing the video showed a way of, within the sketch merging two rectangles instantly within the sketch. I cannot for the life of me remember how he did it. I can't remember if it was an option or mode selected, or holding down a certain key (or both?). Anywhere the rectangles overlapped or were line to line, they would automatically merge into one continuous irregular shape.

I have been convinced to apply to present at SWW2018 byAlin Vargatu. The company that I work for is also giving me full support and allowing me to use their models in my presentation. I'm also a continuing education instructor at a local community college so have experience presenting. What I need help with is the language that will attract attendees and the decision makers for presenters at SWW.

I have a question about scrolling in features. Can i change the options that i cant change settings by scrolling in the feature menu? For Example: when I set a thread to M3 and want to zoom out and forgett to place my mouse in the "Part Window" the thread changes. That is really annoying.

One of our users created a part file yesterday and saved it. When he opened the file this morning, all of the geometry was missing (no features in the tree), and the origin and default planes were missing. The options to show the origin and default planes are set to "show". No other part files are affected and opening the "corrupt" file on another machine has the same missing items.

I'm looking for advice on methods for modeling a part that will be fabricated from cut (laser, water jet, plasma, etc) plates of steel and then welded together. I have been using solidworks for many years to make parts for CNC machining and assembles of such parts, but I'm having trouble figuring out a good workflow for these kinds of models. I recently did some front suspension components for a truck:

I have a top level assembly that I need to show locations of several sub assemblies COM in the drawing. This top level assy model has about 7 sub assemblies that need the COM identified in three projected drawing views. The COM's show up fine in the assembly model, but they do not show up completely in the drawing views. Lets just say I see 4 out of the 7 in one view and 3 out of the 7 in another view.

I was wondering if it is possible to export the dimensions or properties of the solid bodies to excel? I would like something similar to how a weldment produces a cut list (there are reasons why I have not chosen to do my model using weldments and rather as a whole part). I had to do this in Inventor once.
