no clue what happened, but when I came in to work today and fired up SW, my S key shortcut now has the icons loaded in a horizontal line. friday when I left work, and for the previous 2 years of SW, the S key shortcut menu was always vertical. anybody know what setting to look for that changes this back?

Hi, I set the feature as extrude with thin feature at the beginning but later I change my mind and want it to be solid extrude, but it seems it cannot be unchecked(the checkbox is grey as the attached pic shows). Does it mean they are actually not interchangeable or I just do it incorrectly? Thanks SolidworksParts And Features

I don't get it: In the attached project I selected three lines in the "no symmetry" drawing layer, but SolidWorks doesn't show me the Symmetric relation: I would expect to get a Symmetry relation after having selected three lines. What am I missing? Your help is very much appreciated. Best regards, Axel SolidworksParts And Features

I want to insert part 2 into part 1 to get a derived part. but after "insert" operation, the drawing doesn't change. so my colleague did the same process, and he can get a complete derived part drawing. my VAR said that it's hard to tell if it's the computer problem or software bug. does any one met this problem like this? My version is 2015 SP5 standard SolidworksParts And Features

I am creating a branching part that involves multiple sweep bosses as seen below. When I do the next swept boss for sketch seen in the image above everything disappears except for the new feature like below. The preview for the feature looks good and there are no errors. Any ideas of what may be happening?

I'm trying to copy and move / rotate this part and set the height above the first part. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I tried xing out to come back to the start of this feature, but thats not happening. When I reopen the file, it takes me back to the second part of the feature.

Hi, it would be nice to add reverse of shell feature. Instead of cutting, that it could add a solid layer above an object - selected faces. or maybe is there a function for this already? something like body-offset would be nice. SolidworksParts And Features

Just outgassing here. Importing an assembly from a step file. I've spent most of the morning checking out of this window--probably over a hundred times right now. No idea why SW created all of these import files read only.

Not the first time this has happened SW 2016. Deleted a failed insert bend command and am now unable to try again. Is there a way to remove all traces of sheet metal features from a .sldprt? Deleting the features doesn't do ti.

During my normal morning search for news I bumped into this presentation on a 'new CAD'. The presentation isn't really that good but what it shows impressed me. I hope you think the same. It looks to be game changing.https://finance.yahoo.com/news/mit-developed-plugin-makes-cad-110300143.html SolidworksParts And Features
