I tried putting an equation in the value box. It wouldn't take it, but I was able to put the D1@Plane# in my design table and drive it that way. A little extra work but it works.

Whenever I or a coworker have been saving our SolidWorks drawings as DXFs for laser cutting they have had extremely small gaps that can be seen when viewing the drawings in DraftSight. When I export a view of the model it works fine. When I export the drawing itself it has the gaps.

I've got my 3D printer back up and running and I'm trying to figure out how to modify a Thingiverse part. The problem is that when I try to do anything with it, I get an error. Anybody have any ideas? Am I going to have to measure and model it.

Variable Mapping I am trying to set it so that the variables in the model (description, dwg number, drawn by, etc) automatically populate when I create a drawing from that model. I have read through the variable mapping section in the admin guide but I must be doing something wrong or missing a step or something.

If I have a part with multiple symbols, say a pcb or a connector, and I have associated them together, how do I show where all the fragments of the component are? On my interconnect, I insert "dummy" panel mount connectors (which have no connection points), and I associate them to the panel mount connectors J1 and J5 in their appropriate location boxes. That way I get the tag, signal name and mating part number reference.

A few weeks ago I flagged up a glitch in a non linear analysis where it had given me the wrong answer to the change in length of a bar whose CTE changed with temperature. When inputting a CTE curve for a material, don't put in the CTE curve. At least don't put in the instantaneous CTE curve.

I want to put my middle initial before i will complete the segment 3 thanks. This is probably something that has to be handled on their end since the account is already created.
