I am making a complex part that needs to have several different offsets/fixtures. Solidcam always Gcodes the entire set of operations as G54. How do I change the offsets/fixtures in Solidcam or Solidworks so that when Solidcam gcodes all the operations at once, each operation can have it's own offset/fixture..such as G55, G56, etc?

Hello, I am considering to buy a laptop with a 4K screen (e.g. Yoga 920 14"). Have those issues related to 4K scaling been resolved? I have just tried 2018 SP4.0 on one of our 4k monitors in the office, and whilst it is still more functional than any version before.

Anybody know if I can insert a SolidWorks part or assembly into a Word file. Just realised there is a cool feature inWord 2016that allows for 3D files to be inserted and rotated around. Pretty cool feature. Requires a 365 subscription by the way.

I'm trying to form a manifold-type shape where one cylinder separates into two slightly smaller cylinders. I'm almost there but I've run into some headaches along the way and I'm hoping someone more familiar with surfacing can help me out.

I noticed there are some new discussion topics (and several older ones) that I find engaging and humorous. I also noticed there isn't one for us craft beer fans. The effort here is to post beer related pics and talk about beer, breweries, & home brewing. Lets see what happens ¯_(ツ)_/¯

I have been given a bunch of models, assemblies and parts. The problem is that the parts are made by using "save bodies", and some of the parts are still one solid, useless for us as production underlay. So what are the options, one we edit all "in context", which I find rather complexed. Two I use new commands and functions on a part that are saved as a body from one solid, but this doesn`t look very professional in our tree line over there.
