Is there any way to - when you add an additional sheet - have the additional sheet format file pull the model-file-name of the 1st view inserted on that added sheet? My company will create laser cut weldments from time to time - we like to use 1 sheet per cut piece in this case; and - because of the need to export laser cut pieces individually, we prefer to have each sheet be named specifically.

How many times do you see a great thread get trashed or hijacked for various reasons and I'll take the "Stand" and say I'm the worst for doing that.. So when I'm acting stupid tell me to trash it here, get it?? Rants - Cheers - Pet Peeves - or your Aunt Lilly, bring it.. (More then likely the dumbest thread anybody started, but I tried to keep it stupid, stupid) - The Forum Moderators rules still apply, no obscene pics, raunchy language and personal attacks, those will be reported and deleted if

While I know SolidWorks motion tools are quite powerful in terms of creating a sequence of movement you tend to program a rigid sequence with set start and end positions. I would like to 'animate' a SolidWorks assembly using VBA (or at least adjust assembly dimension to create the illusion of motion) thus allowing me access to access the functionality and flexibility of a mainstream programming language. One think I would like to do for example is to animate a pick an place robot based on a set

We have changed our standard support foot to a different type of support foot and need to change all the assemblies to have the new support foot. Is there a way to change all the assemblies to the new foot without opening and changing it manually? Is this new foot a modification of the original Part, or a completely different Part file?

I am wondering if it is possible to have the Cut List description in my BOM description? I am working on automating the BOM of steel structures and it would be awesome if was possible, I know that you can insert the Cut List description by choosing "Indented" in the Bill of Materials property, but the problem is that I will get two rows instead of one and then multiple length values. (See attached pic.) I cannot use the Weldment Cut List, because I have a lot of different equations linked to the

We had our SW Var in today to talk about a solution to a problem that is really hurting us right now. We are a small startup company with 4 seats of SW with another on the way. We don't have a server so SW was initially set up using Dropbox which worked okay when there were just two users doing their own thing and we communicated about what files we would be working with. The third and fourth seats though changed everything as those people work on large assemblies containing nearly everything we
