I am currently practicing the CSWP practice exam provided by SolidWorks however I am stuck on problem 4. I know there is some problem as shown in the picture but when I measure it, I just get the correct dimension. I would really appreciate it if someone can take a look at my attached part and see what places I got wrong. Thank you!

Hi, is it possible to make a sketch 1 XY witch lines/arks, and sketch 2 XZ withch a lines/arks and then use a "magic wand" to get 3D sketch of intersection of these two? I know i can extrude surfaces out of these two sketches and then use intersection which gives me what i want, however I'm looking for the same outcome without having the surfaces Here is example of 2 surfaces and intersection: SolidworksParts And Features

Hello. This is a very difficult macro I am inquiring about. If anyone has a macro like this or has resources to help please respond. GOAL OF MACRO: export all sub-assemblies/parts to a .dxf file from the view selected in the main assembly.

I know I created a sketch and Extruded Cut to take the domed top off of this post, but why isn't it in the tree? I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but this is a new one. And before anyone asks, my computer was rebooted this morning, and I see the Rebuild symbol, but neither a regular rebuild or Ctrl+Q do anything. I'm curious to see what happens when I save this Part, close it, and re-open. SolidworksGeneral

Hi. I have an aseembly (PCB) who has several dozens (even hundreds) components (parts). Those parts have names that could give to a third part (client) informations that we don't want to share. We'd like to rename all the components with a more generic name, like: PROJECT #1.SLDPRT PROJECT #2.SLDPRT ...

Hello, I am trying to add an edgeflange to a circular sheet metal by using the function “IFeatureManager.InsertSheetMetalEdgeFlange2”. This function requires a sketch created with the function “IModelDoc2.InsertSketchForEdgeFlange”. The created sketch is a 2D-Sketch. But when I create the edge-flange-feature by hand it uses a 3D-Sketch.

I've been running SW 2019 for months now and today it decided to give me the below error message when I try to do a pack and go. I do pack and goes (packs and go?) maybe 20 times a day. now I am getting this. I am just doing a pack and go to within the same folder, just renaming it and keeping the original file as is. this is now happening with model files and well as drawing files. Any Thoughts?

The blog article explains the possible solutions of this issue. Thanks, Artem SolidworksApi/macros

Hi everybody I have an idea about how to simplify top-down design. This is example of top down design of transmittion power pole. Creating shortcuts for design (control) sketches greatly simplifies top-down design process. It is something like dynamic reference visualization tool for collecting all dependant design sketches and features in one place for fast and convenient access.

I was creating a new administrative image for SW2018 SP 0.1 and one of the files in SOLIDWORKS CAM was flagged by ESET anti-virus as being a potentially unsafe application. The file in question is 'elevate.exe' in the SOLIDWORKS CAM/NCEditor/Sys folder. In looking at the Quarantine history, the file was also flagged in my PR1 admin image. I'm curious if anyone else had this file flagged. SolidworksAdministration

Just sent this to my VAR but thought I'd let everyone know. I'll post their response when I get it. Overriding an assembly's mass doesn't work if the assembly is set to be flexible. Assembly with the weight overriden but not set on flexible: Assembly with the weight overriden AND set to flexible.

Figured I would show the community here something I have put together. It's a task details dashboard and it saves users going into the admin tool to see the status of their tasks. It's live on my development server, so forgive the failed tasks. Check it out here.

Hi jesse Seger, Thank u for reply. I went through the link what you have provided. And here i found that at the end it is returned to specified values.But actually what i need is if i select the Title then other parameters such as External dia,Wire dia,...,No of coils should select automatically & then i have to use finish button to create the model.Please have a look on the form design & table.

Hello everyone, I got a question about the screw which is created from the SW toolbox. With the SW screw, the profile was created from revolving the sketch. With the real screw, they have a helix profile. I attached 2 fotos to let you see what the difference is.

I'd like to see a faster way to select sub-assemblies in the graphics area, something that does not require me to go into menus. We are already familiar with Alt-Selection in Composer, why not implement this in SOLIDWORKS as well? One of the drivers behind this is to give me access in one click to the assembly context-menus such as Open, Hide/Show, Transparency, Edit, Suppress/Unsuppress, etc... Solidworks

Hi Everyone, You may have noticed in the What's New that we mention being able to add a mate between a general parametric surface and a line. As detailed in the release notes, this is unavailable in beta1, and unfortunately, we have been unable to resolve the remaining issues with this feature, so it will be unavailable for SW2015. Apologies if you were looking forward to this. Thanks, Chris SolidworksSolidworks 2015 Beta
