Hey everyone! Is there a way in Solidworks 2017 to explode a multi-body part in an exploded view of an assembly? I cannot use the "reuse subassembly explode" button since it is a part, not an assembly. And also I found a solution but it only works in solidworks 2020 where there is a "from part" button under options but it is not present in solidworks 2017. SolidworksAssemblies

This dialog box should not exist. I should be able to section my assembly in whatever way I choose. Solidworks, remove this from ever appearing. SolidworksAssemblies

Anyone else find the new toolbox listing of to be awful? Why change it from ascending physical size order, e.g. M5, M6, M8 to a confusing numerical order, e.g. M1.6, M10, M12, M16, M2, M20. Makes fastener lists look completely illogical. SolidworksAssemblies

Sometimes when I change the transparency of a part it is notsee-through even though the icon claims it is suppose to be. Other times a part remains transparent even when I have shiftedback and I have to give it a nudge with rebuild. SW09SolidworksAssemblies

I don't know if this is place for this question, but heregoes. I am new to Solidworks and I am practicing assemblies. I have two flat plates, one will have four tapped holes thru it andthe other will have four counter bored features. My question is: how do I get the counter bores to be concentricwith the tapped holes in the first plate?

Hi,I am a newbe and this is my first participation here. Have recently completed a moderately large assembly that has a fairly high bolt/ fastener count of various sizes and I was just contemplating the best way to produce a bolt list that I can forward to our supplier and thought I would ask how you manage this task and is there a way to automate this a little.

Hi to all, I added a path mate, but as you know, during the ascent or descent,if simulating the rotation, the pin goes into collision with thequarry. Do you have a solution to remedy the problem of collision ? Regards.SolidworksAssemblies

We have to share our cad models (assembly files) to our vendor. But we would like to add some inaccuracy to the model so that no one can do reverse engineering to our product. Please let me know is there any options to do the same? I know the option “defeature”.

Often when saving my assembly, and perhaps when Saving As (in orderto try something risky on the copy) I receive a message about otheropen documents, but I only ever have one document open at a time. Consequently I don't know to respond to the dialog. SolidworksAssemblies

The tree Save Part (in external File) dialog window Open virtual part and get Save as dialog window So, here we see that these dialog windows are different. Save as dialog is nearly I need: "Assem1 Part9" or "Assem1_Part9" or "Assem1-Part9" or (some prefix case). So please make these dialogs equal and add option for prefix (suffix) and delimiter. Thanks in advance. SolidworksAssemblies
