I'm wondering if there is a way to use the "Fill Pattern" feature (or if there is another feature which can do this) to create the maximum number of instances within a defined area. For example (below) i wish to have the maximum number of holes possible within the blue dotted area. I still need to be able to set a minimum spacing and a minimum clearance/margin to the outside but I have no requirement for the pattern to be regular.

Yes I know Quadro cards are the "officially supported" cards for SolidWorks and Visualize, and I have a P5000 in my #1 workstation. I want to upgrade another workstation and just thought I would ask for some opinions between the 1080 ti and P4000. The specs on the 1080 ti blow the P4000 out of the water on paper, and they can be gotten for about the same price.

I only use SW2019 occasionally so i do not know if this is a bug. when i put BOM in the assembly environment this will appear and after i clicked the table will disappear but if i will move my mouse in the place where i put the BOM it will show a distorted table and if i will move aside my courser it will dis appear again. Does anyone using 2019 also suffer this problem. Also this one hmm maybe the Nvidia Driver can anyone post what nvidia driver they are using in a Nvidia Quadro K5000m

Hi, I have eDrawings pro on an iPad and can view models saved from previous versions of Solidworks, i have saved new models from SW2019, and the models will not display in eDrawings, does anyone else have this issue ? Nick StanfordThat is reasonable common for DS SOLIDWORKS to be behind with the eDrawings App and the latest release.

Why...does SolidWorks, when I initiate a cut, more often than not go away from the part and give me the "intended cut does not intersect the model?? If the software knows where the model is, why doesn't it default to the valid direction??

One of the least talked about major enhancement in the SOLDIWORKS 2019 is the new graphics engine based on OpenGL 4.5. It makes new and old video cards (up to 6 year old) fly compared to SW 2018 performance! We wanted to put this new graphics engine to test, soAlen Topicand I used 3 simple tests, readily available to everyone to measure the improvements, as much as we could.

I want Windows to quit updating my graphics card driver. For some reason, it keeps updating the driver to the latest version instead of the Solidworks-approved driver I manually installed. I can't tell you how many times I've reinstalled it, only to find later that it isn't the driver currently installed.

Say you have a 3D sketch with several instances of the same dimension linked to a global variable so that they can all be modified from the table at once. Is it best practice to place the dimension in the sketch once and link all other instances to it, or link each individual dimension to the global variable? It seems that you would get the same result either way but I am wondering about impact on system resources.

I'm trying to design a parametric HTD pulley for a school project, but I have been having trouble finding information on the actual profile of the teeth. Here I tried just using an arc for the tooth profile, but this produces a shape that is different than a reference pulley that I have. Does anyone know what determines the correct shape for the pulley teeth?

When I want to add a cotation to something (line,circle,etc) it dosn't show up the little drawing of the cotations (with the arrows) and when I click the Left mouse button I can add a mesure but it dosen't show up. then Solidworks always display the cotation tool under the mouse no matter what tool i use. I suspect the problem is with your graphics card. SeeWhy am I getting weird graphics issues?

I was hoping someone out there could provide me with some models that have correct tolerances in them. There are many good snap fit design guides freely available on the web, however I cannot recall seeing one that deals with anything other than plastic. It is worth a look though.

For a long time now, I've been coding an application in Visual Basic that connects to Solidworks, and makes various measurements or manipulations of Temporary (Virtual) Bodies. I have noticed, many times now, that Solidworks API calls sometimes happen very quickly, and sometimes they are slow, even if I'm repeating the exact same operation. Trying to track down the cause, I made absolutely sure that my application repeats the same operations identically (no broken references, no memory leaks or

I would highly recommend that there are no checked out files when you do the upgrade. Why risk it? We have done upgrades with files checked out yet without issue (but I never liked doing it, and I always made sure my files were checked in).
