Something that often catches people out when using DriveWorksXpress to control the Configuration of a Weldment Part is the result of their Configuration rule. You must remember to include the or suffixes of the Configuration name, otherwise the Configuration change will not work. An example rule would be :

I am having trouble setting up a 3D pdf template.I can get everything to look great in the template, but when the pdf is created all the text will be shifted and different sizes. Tech support says that this is a known bug,SPR#935070 - Text alignment mismatch. Has anyone else run into this issue?

Solidworks Electrical weird routing results I have been testing Solidworks Electrical for a while now and made ~80% of first project - made most of the electrical schematics (2D). Because of setbacks with 3D Electrical which I explained in posthttps://forum.solidworks.com/thread/210094I couldn’t make any progress with 3D.

Since PDF Creator was removed from the installation manager, we now have to download it manually. Part of the PDF Creator install is the option to also install PDF Architect. Or rather, is the option to NOT install, since it is enabled by default. Well, many people (such as myself) were not aware that it isn't necessary and should be unchecked.

So I have been able to create a cable with connectors (as a wire harness) in a line diagram inside Solidworks Electrical and then route the cable in 3D, however now I am trying to create a very high level line diagram of where the harnesses plug into. It is for a server room and they want a full schematic/line drawing of where each cable connects to on things like servers etc. So the diagram would have a single line/cable going into a box labelled 'Server 1' to port PCI 1 for example.Untitled.

My last PDF sample of theNIST container assemblyreceived a lot of great feedback so I decided to create another one. I kept the same goals in mind. I wanted to publish a clean, accurate, and visually appealing 3D PDF. The only difference is that this time I used a much larger assembly, 153 parts to be exact.

We produce tables like the following for each of our schematics. This helps the assemblers determine which wires go where. I just put together a drawing that has a few cables.

I have a design that has multiple locations (11, some are nested). I am using Solidworks Electrical 2D for project schematics and Solidworks Electrical 3D for modeling and routing. Every location has its own assembly.

To my opinion it would be a great timesaver to directly export the 2D cabinet layout of SolidWorks Electrical Schematic to SolidWorks 3D. Location and connected 3D-bodys are already / or at least can be set up in the database of the manufacturers part. So why don't we use it?

I'm trying to export a model to CircuitWorks as a two-sided single layer pcb. This board doesn't have any components, it's simply a board with a conductive layer on top and on bottom, with some via holes through the board connecting the two sides. The model is an extrusion of a sketch that represents the outline of the board and then two extrusions, one on top and one on bottom to represent the copper conductive geometries I would like on each side of the board. I've used only a single

Im 16 and have 4 days to figure this problem out or I will fail the biggest exam of my life so far please help? So on my PC in my house I have Solidworks 2018 Regular version and I cant find the photoview 360 add in. I need to come up with a way to show a photo realistic picture of my part.

Is there a way to make PhotoView 360 work, apart from creating an entirely new Windows profile? PhotoView 360 window appears, and then disappears after a split second. Problem solved by creating a new log in, but creating and moving everything to a new login will take some time. Everything else is great, but, of course, SolidWorks is struggling to perform.

So I am a regular Solidworks user and have been asked to do some AutoCAD Electrical work (note, I am not liking the program in the slightest!). I understand Solidworks has nothing to do with AutoCAD Electrical but I thought some people on here may have used it before and could give me some tips. I have asked on many other AutoCAD forums but haven't been able to get responses, and I have found the Solidworks forum to be much more active and helpful.

I installed SP 1.0 and now I get the following error:"Database connection failed". I tried to import the old database but still does not work. Just to update to this- I wound up uninstalling solidworks and reinstalling SP 1.0 from scratch and it all worked.

Here is the scenario- I moved my toolbox location from local to network location. But due to this when I was opening my existing assemblies toolbox components were taking random size and not the selected. Even I am not getting a option to select the configurations of those hardware items. So, I moved the location back to local, but even after that hardware are of random sizes and also the configurations are missing.
