We just started having issues with either solid bodies or surface bodies disappearing. If we roll the model back at some point the body well show up roll it forward and it disappears. We tried toggling show and hide, used rebuild and ctrl Q for complete rebuild to no avail. I tried changing image quality settings.

I have some planes and axes in a part that I want to hide, and some others that I want to show. And then, at some point, I'll want to switch, and hide the ones I could see and show the ones that were hidden. These axes are almost coincident, but not quite, so to make sure I select the correct axis, I turn half of them off.

Retaining Hole Wizard Data Multibody Parts I have a multibody part that I then insert each body into it's own part. Seems that hole wizard data isn't retained though as drawings just reference the hole size.

I have a sketch that I am going to extrude. The sketch is however located on the edge, but I want the extrude to be place some distance from that edge. To place the extrude at the correct position I use the offset.

Hello, why doesn't SolidWorks have the function of a key explosion diagram? Maybe if you'd define "key explosion diagram", or show an example, we could help.

Our manufacturing software has a slot on the routing (WIP) tag for a picture of the detail being processed. At this time we use eDrawings to Hide Others->Orient->Save As jpeg each individual detail from the assembly. This is a fairly time consuming process especially when there are 50 to 100 details. I'm fairly good with VBA but I am not at all skillful with Solidworks.

SOLIDWORKS introduces every year a ton of enhancements. This year, in addition to focusing onONE and TWO, SOLIDWORKS 2018 proposes a series of BIG enhancements, that transcend the term "enhancement", being actually new products, or new environments like: SOLIDWORKS Manage, SOLIDWORKS CAM, Topology Optimization in Simulation Professional and Premium, or the new enhanced functionality for Mesh objects. What about the so called "small" enhancements, or what SOLIDWORKS calls "Delighters"?

Not sure if I should be in Assembly mode or not. There's a solid rectangle and a formed piece that sits on top of it. I can not figure how to wrap the formed piece on top.

I'm using the "Master Model" technique, where the first feature of my part is inserting a basic skeleton model, which is used as a reference for every part in the assembly. Using this method, when the master model part file is changed, every part which references the Master will update accordingly.

Okay so I have been working on this mouse for weeks now and in particular the top half. I have the base made and it seems to be all good. I have made so many different attempts at the top but all have failed me when trying to thicken etc.

I want to make the straps on my helmet. I'm going to make them out of nylon, but that isn't an option in the materials. If the specific material that you want isn't listed, then you can add it pretty easily.

After moving my PART files into a new directory called "Parts", and my DRAWING files into a directory called "Drawings", obviously the links will be broken when i open the DRAWING file. Instead ofReplace, Is there another way to reconnect the PARTS to the DRAWING file? I am hoping there is a simple way to simply change the file path in a preference somewhere instead of "Replacing" all the components.

I am trying to convert the attached file from a lofted solid to a sheet metal part. Seems like this should be pretty simple, however, I've failed at all attempts. What am I doing wrong? I tried to convert, but the model is missing a transition radius from the top to the sides, I tried to create curved surfaces which worked well, but I could not join the 5 sheet metal parts into one part that can be flattened.

I am trying to create two blocks and save them. I could not create a block and restarted my computer. This allowed me to actually create a block and save it, which I did to the desktop. I opened a different sketch and created a block and clicked the green check mark but it would not turn the selected lines into a block. reloaded my saved setting and it allowed me to make a block and save it.

I do not have the paper layout feature, just Part and Assembly. I've been using DimXpert but find it limiting.
