I used hole wizard to define a bottom tapped M3 hole 6mm thread depth. In the drawing when I apply ole callout on that feature, it correctly shows a corresponding depth of 6mm = 0.236". But when I section through the hole, I don't get that dimension. Any ideas?

I am working on an assembly drawing. We do not have the cabling modeled. I do have a JPG of the cabling. I can add this JPG to the drawing as a sketch picture.

Is there any way to view that a custom link has been added to a BOM table? For instance, I start with a blank row in the BOM table. I double-click on a cell in that row and then click the Link to Property button.

We are currently using SW2017, in this edition they have 'fixed' mirrored holes so that when the hole callout is used in the drawing; it displays the instances of the original feature as well as the instances of any mirrored holes. See below link:

This may seem like a minor detail but to some, it matters. I am familiar with calloutformat.txt but I cannot figure out how to capitalize the x for the number of instances on a hole callout. Does anyone know how this can be changed? I've scoured the forums/google for answers with no luck.

I really like this option, but is there a way that you can restore the color of the dimensions to the default template colors without closing the drawing and re-opening it? It's a nice feature to see if a dimension changed that you didn't want to, but it would be better if you could RMB and click "approve dimension changes" and have it restore all to default. I know you can go to "isolate changed dimensions" but that's an extra step and you have to subconsciously do this.

make sketch from selected feature I am not knew to creating parts and assemblies, but I am somewhat new to making drawings, at least more than just plopping down my views and hitting print.

I was wondering if anyone has a way to refresh the increment on created features. By this I mean; if you have 3 holes: Dowel Hole 1, Dowel Hole 3, Dowel Hole 10, renaming them so they occur sequentially?

replace model view shifts When I use "Replace Model" on a locked position view, it is shifting the view down and to the right, for some reason. All other views related to the parent remain in position, but the image is off by the same amount, which causes any sketches related to become skewed and need to be redone.

How do I modify my company BOM to include both part numbers and drawing numbers? Currently the the BOM puts the drawing number (ex: D127-0019 this is also the file name) in the part number column of the BOM. The part number should be CP5XT500. But the BOM is showing the drawing number.

cosmetic hole colouring I'm trying to colour holes on our detail drawings. When I export an iges or try to open a solidworks file in Powermill, any hole that has a cosmetic thread shows up as grey, minus the bottom of the hole (if it's a blind hole) which has the proper colour.

I would like to have a block that includes the item balloon for the view. I have tried a number of way with no success. I know that the view is tied to the BOM row - in some way. Right now we are inserting the block then adding the balloon (minus the leader).

I know you can do this on the system side, but this becomes problematic when working on both inch and mm drawings for us. Is it possible to have this changes for templates? Ruben Rodolfo BalderramaMay 24, 2018 12:04 PM(in response to Joseph Lemire) do you need dimension on mm and inch at the same time?

I know you can manually remove each line one at a time, but is there a setting or option to remove lines automatically that are not needed and for this example just show the edge lines and not the curved ones? Right click the view→Tangent edge display→tangent edges removed

is there a way to change componant transparency directly in paper space. not just hide or show componant. If by "paper space" you mean in a Solidworks Drawing, then no, there isn't an option to make a component transparent there. You can make it transparent in the Assembly, but that will only expose components behind it in the Drawing if your view is one of the Shaded options.

A question for all the table experts out there and for SolidWorks employees. I will try not to rant but it is frustrating. We are creating some reference drawings for a customer for a simple product made up of between 5 and 15 components per configuration.
