I've got an assembly of a CubeSat structure. I am getting stress singularity at some edges and want to apply a fillet. Problem this edge is where two different parts with different materials meat and it's not allowing me to place the fillet there.

I am using Solidworks 2018 with EPDM. When I file save as in an assembly, it then proceeds to give me a save as dialog prompt to save all the parts and assemblies in my original assembly one by one. I had this problem in 2015 and solved it by checking the box "Don't prompt to save read-only referenced documents (discard changes)" This check box is still checked. I also tried to change my registry to put a "1" in the "Abort read-only Top Docks" value.

Has anyone ever ran into an assembly they were trying to mate together and your mates constantly disappear? It's pretty much a shaft assembly with mostly concentric, coincident and parallel mates to lock each part in.

Is it possible in an assembly to see (check) if all components have a material assigned, preferably in the tree? I know if the parts are expanded it shows the material. I would like a quick way to know without having to check each component, sub component, etc. This would help in doing Mass properties easily.

First off, I have to thankJohn Stoltzfusfor his help in getting us to our current position. We see the value in the Skeleton Sketch Part Method because inevitably near the end of our projects we are having to make fundamental design changes. So, we need a robust method of handling those changes to our assemblies. I worked with John and tried to map out what I thought would be a good workflow.

So, I've got a fairly large assembly that I'm currently working on. I had this assembly and another reference assembly (the 'original') on two separate monitors, in order to compare a few of the mates in my assembly with the original and make sure that they were all right. However, it seems that some files from the original have almost 'seeped' into my assembly - every time I load my assembly, I get rebuild errors from the original assembly, it tells me that parts from the original assembly that

Is it possible to add a part which contains in context references to a new subassembly and maintain any existing in context references in the part? For example, sayI have an assembly made up of Part A, Part B, and Part C. Part B has in context references to Part A. If I then select Part B and Part C and choose "Form new sub assembly here" Solidworks will form the new sub assembly without giving me any warnings. When I open the main assembly later the in context references in Part B are now all

I'm having trouble figuring out a mate that allows movement like show in the next image. The idea is that the central post of the umbrella pushes down into the “valley” formed by the cuts in the four sides. When it engages them, their tops move apart, but their bottoms are constrained by the lower cap.In effect, they tilt outwards from one another.

piston travel distance issue Having an issue trying to figure out how to keep a piston from traveling too far from the base. Have a concentric mate with the piston guide, mate from the guide to the top of the piston with the max distance set, and a linear coupler from the piston top to the set screw that pushes it down.

Is it possible to automatically float the fist part dropped into an assembly. Currently, it appears that when you drag and drop the first part into an assembly, it is always fixed in position. Is there an option to leaving this assembly component floating by default?

I'm attempting to make exploded views to use for assembly purposes in manufacturing, parts catalogs, etc. I'm in the edit explode step, and I can't exit out of it. I can't save the drawing, I can't cancel. If I hit escape, solidworks pops up the "The current operation cannot be interrupted or the document is not accessible at this time".
