I need your help with modeling an edge-flange on already bended material (eg. not on a straight edge). On attached model "sweep2" is representing what I want to make, but using sweep I'm unable to make a flatten sheet. I have tried countless possibilities since this morning but I can't figure it out.

I have a Dispatch script that checks if a file has certain custom properties, if it doesn't, a message box is displayed for the user stating what is missing. This script works on all files being transitioned. For each file, a separate message box is displayed. If say, 100 files are transitioned and 20 files have an issue, the user will receive 20 message boxes, then the transition will cancel.

I came across this issue after I have updated the part model and edit the Properties as well. It seems that the BOM Table is not updating correctly. Any inputs on this are well appreciated.

mp3 file cards are present since PDM 2009, but in all these years I did not succeed to get it working. Which means that when I add an mp3 file to my Vault, the metadata does not get filled in. Has anyone got an idea?

Some of our members tell us that they design using Surfacing exclusively. I personally would like to understand this better, Please jump in and tell us why you might design using Surfacing rather than Solids (or vis a vis). I have designed using Solids almost almost exclusively. Am I missing something?

We recently implemented PDM and I'm rolling with the changes. In summary, I am hoping to use the Dispatch add-in to help with our process. I would like dispatch to check out the PDF associated with a SLDDRW file when the SLDDRW file is checked out. We'd make any changes, save the PDF and then check the SLDDRW back in and I would like Dispatch to then check the PDF back in as well.

you'll need an actual driver for your card as well. Please download it from the NVida website. And after that, you'll have to activate the denoise function trough options / 3d-viewports.

Hi all, I'm trying to CAD a cone like shown below. For this part, I drew a section of it then revolved it to form a cone. I would like to CAD it by defining the large and small diameter instead, and tried doing so and using a lofted base feature. However, that results in a curved cross section even when I inserted a guide curve.

I'm having trouble creating a parting surface to connect these for parts. Using the parting surface radiates a circle that covers the bottom of the other 3 parts. I've read about a way to create a parting surface manually, but can't get anything to work. I can create a single part mold without much trouble, just having trouble getting a multiple cavity one.

It is fairly easy to drive any component or sub-assembly that is only one level down (Part 1 or SubAsm) by using $configuration@component_name . However, in this example, it seems I cannot use a design table in "Asm" to control the active configuration of "Part2" or "Part3", which leads me to ask:

Hi Christian, sorry but that's incorrect. PDM (Pro or Standard) always has to be at the same level or newer than your SolidWorks CAD. So if you have 2018 PDM, but 2017 SolidWorks that's fine. However 2017 PDM and 2018 SolidWorks will not work.
