Is there a better way to to create a feature that will belaser etched? And have it show on the face it is suppposed to beon? In the past I have used an extruded-cut, each with it's own set ofproblems. 1. either entirely thru the material thickness -can be etched on the incorrect surface 2. only 'embossed' into the material -if the 'fixed face' is not facing up the feature does not show.

We are new victims of 2009 (SW and EPDM) trying to work outall the bugs that SW left for us To give you a background, we use EPDM set at "Always use latestversion," and have been doing that ever since implenting EPDM. When trying to use the File Upgrade Utility, we get warnings thatthe assembly is referencing something other than the latest versionof a file and therefore the latest version will not be upgraded. First of all, does anyone know why EPDM would not be referencingthe latest version?

Howdy! I have been using Solidworks for about 9 years now, and one of themore frustrating things I find is adding/modifying a material.Solidworks uses N/in^2 for a unit of stress when working in IPS.IPS is confusing enough, without adding in Newtons. Is there anyway to force the material database to choose either IPS or SI unitsonly? I know I can do the conversion by hand, but it is awkward atbest.

Hello all, I have been working on a program that will get the tip deflectionof a wing. This required me to obtain the nodes on the tip of thewing and find their displacement. I originally had thought the mostlogical course of action was to use a Static Linear Analysis, getthe nodes from the mesh, and then use the functionGetDisplacementComponentForAllStepsAtNode to obtain thedisplacement at the nodes. Everything worked great until the codegot to the previously stated function where it would

When I change a part file name, and then open a assembly withthat part in it I have to find the part 2 times before it willopen. Anyone have a fix for this? It seems to me that you shouldonly have to re-establish the path to the part once. Thanks for anyhelp.

Let's say I want to create a cross section view of a steppedcyclindrical shaft. For the first step, I need to sketch a line thelength of the shaft. So I drag the cursor over the mid point at theend of the shaft and move the cursor outside the end of the shaftfor my starting point. In Inventor, when select the midpoint at theend of the shaft and then dragging the cursor outside the shaft, itshows a dashed line letting me know I'm still on the center line ofthe shaft.

Hello everyone, Is there a way (maybe through the API or something) to display additional custom property data beyond the built-in Tree Display options? What we want to achieve is to use a configuration driven fastener model to generate all the lengths we will use for a particular type. The issue is that they are all called PART NAME (example: SHCS ) - we can't see the particular length or size (or whatever we want to see for a "description"). The issue for us is where do we put the information

Question: If I have two identical parts and Part_1.sldprt isin a drawing with dimensions etc, and I want to stop referencingPart_1.sldprt in that drawing and instead reference Part_2.sldprt,(i.e. not lose the dimensions I have already placed), how can thisbe done? I know I can use Solidoworks explorer to "replace" the part, butthe effect of this is that all assemblies etc referencing this partseem to be affected and all I want to affect is the drawing I amworking on. Help please...

I'm currently working on a project where we're going to builda winch into a 10 foot container. I've found lots of 20' and 40' containers on 3D Content Central, but from the comments I read that they're not accurate, not according to ISO and so on. So now I'm asking you guys if any of you have a good 3D-model, preferrably SW-format, of a standard 10 foot container. It would be nice if it was built up as a real container, with framework, walls, floors, corner molds and so on, because I will have

Hi, Every now and then we get this message on our SW automation tool. Basically some toolbox component does not exist in the serverstoolbox and a dialog box pops up, asking "Would you like to find ityourself?". Is it possible to auto-decline this, so the program doesn't hang atthis dialog?

I am trying to render an assembly but am getting very poorresults. The parts are supposed to be brushed stainless steel butas you can see look more like granite. In realview they look muchbetter, but still "washed out". Being a novice at photoworks Iwould really appreciate some guidance as to what I'm doing wrong! ThanksSolidworksPhotoworks

I've been thinking about using this for check prints and waswondering if anyone uses this and would have any advice. I understand the basics of how this works (it compares drawingimages at the bit level). It will mark changes of ANYTHING that changes position such as viewmoves, correct?SolidworksDrawings And Detailing

Hi, I am looking for a way to test the impact force of a reciprocatingtool. I know there is drop testing but would I just have toincrease gravity. I would like to simulate the force of1500-2500lbs acting on the reciprocating rod as if the tool was tohit a piece of solid metal while cutting and stop instantly. Any ideas are appricated.

Are you facing problems with opening solidworks files inComposer? Here are some tips: Option 1: Check knowledge base on this customer portal. The kbaseis expanding on a regular basis. Option 2: If you have SW2009 and SW2008 installed on same machineand your files are saved in SW2008 format (because you don't dareto get on to SW2009 yet :-)), go to "Settings-->ApplicationPreferences" in Composer and look for SolidWorks versions list inthe INPUT tab.

I have a block that contains a note linked to a customproperty ($PRP:"name"). Using the API, I update the custom propertyand callEditRebuild3. Notes in the title block reflect the newcustom properties, but the values in the block don't. I canmanually rebuild (ctrl-B) and the block updates.

I installed SolidWorks 2007 and have now discovered that nodefault drawing or assembly templates were installed. It did load,however, with a default part template. I have copied drawing templates off of the web, but SolidWorkswon't open them either. It says it "can not recognize the file"(however, the template image shows in the preview window so it hasto recognize it to some degree).

I have to edit sketch of the flange, make it shorter so itdoesn't connect to radius of the bend to have the relief created. Iremember in was done automatically in previous versions. Is my SW2008 not working properly?
