I needed to modify and render some models that were made using SW18. Since I have SW14, the other person converted the SW files to STEP files so I could open them. The problem is that when he converts the models to STEP format they lose their textures. For example, he used Satined Plastic for most of parts, but when either of us open the STEP file all the parts kept their colors, but they how have the default "Color" appearance.

Dear forum contributors, I have learned a lot from all of your postings. I started 2 years ago collecting tips, tricks, tricks and best practices. The number of items grew every week, and soon I could not find anything in my own notes because there were so many and I had to do the search on internet again.

Modeling beveloid gear I have a complex gear, that I will probably have to make an exact CAD model of it, because I will need it for multiaxis CNC machine. From what I found out until now, I won't be able to make it with classical gear manufacturing methods, at least near my location.

As you've hopefully heard by now, we're about to release new integrated technology to make your Visualize renders finish 10x faster! It's called the AI Denoiser, which uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to anticipate and magically eliminate noise in your scene. What does this mean? You can expect the same photo-quality results10x faster!

Guys I've been trying to select the "front plane" and draw a sketch on it. When I execute the file, the code gives me an error saying " object not set to reference".But its already declared as a boolean. Why is it still showing it as " not set to a reference"

I have created a custom function named Create_pt in my code in which it calculates a x coordinate and y coordinate, xpt and ypt respectively. The reason for using a function is because I reuse the same block of code elsewhere. How do I return the values for xpt and ypt from the function? The help file said that if I want to return a value from the function I assign the value to the function name.

I have not extensively learned GD&T, so I would like to know what datum planes I'll need to select to fully auto-dimension the attached model. I am at a loss but this is what I currently have so you can see it's not fully constrained. I know auto-dimension is not the end-all, but for this, it should help give me an idea of what dimensions I need.

I am very vexed by this limitation. I can create a UCS, based off points on a part/component within an assembly or in an individual part file. I can then use this as a reference for taking measurements, but I cannot use it for anything else, other than if I export the file and have that set as the UCS for the new part/file.

Some of our parts contain multiple configurations which have different BOM description (e.g. 10100001____part_widget) The BOM description is usually the configuration name, but can sometimes be user set, or can be document name

For a friend I'm making a mold for this fishing lure. It has been 3d scanned and recreated in solidworks. The scales however are proving to be a problem. I was able to get this done outside of solidworks.

We've been having some speed and crashing issues since switching to 2018. Our rep said that a reason might be because we've been importing user settings from god knows how many years ago year after year. He said that we should start with a fresh install of the default '18 user settings and make our changes to that. Problem is that I don't want to have to completely uninstall and reinstall the whole thing.

How many times do you see a great thread get trashed or hijacked for various reasons and I'll take the "Stand" and say I'm the worst for doing that.. So when I'm acting stupid tell me to trash it here, get it?? Rants - Cheers - Pet Peeves - or your Aunt Lilly, bring it.. (More then likely the dumbest thread anybody started, but I tried to keep it stupid, stupid) - The Forum Moderators rules still apply, no obscene pics, raunchy language and personal attacks, those will be reported and deleted if
