SolidWorks Electrical Slowing Down After upgrading from SolidWorks Electrical 2014 to 2016 my group and I saw a drastic decrease in performance in the software. Old projects could take a couple minutes doing almost any task, like moving a wire.
I am having issues with the terminal blocks in my project. I initially started by adding terms individually for each of my signals going to terms. For example, I have a bank of Power Supplies, and on the outputs I added terminals for example:
It gives me some options for fields to link to, but only a few of the many that I have bound in the report. I'm not sure how get any useful ones to show up. According to the help, it used for selecting an ID in te query to be used for navigation. i.e. if the query has available file_id, then you can select this ID for navigate to specifi file.
I am using SolidWorks Electrical for the first time and am having trouble finding a catalog with MIL spec cables and wires. Could anyone point me in the direction of one? I am hoping to build up my library so I don't have to create these wires/cables every time.
I noticed that solidworks leave a small route (like 0,001mm) when you try to add a fitting direclty on a fitting. Does SW allow having no pipe part between fittings or does it have to be something in between (some small gap)? And by that I mean having Cpoint directly on another Cpoint.
Can I display the "connection points" on components but not print them? I still want to see connection dots on wires. Project>Configuration>Graphics, I hit the drop down to "never" when I want to print, otherwise I use one of the other options to show them when I'm doing a drawing, that's how I handle it.
I found this discussion (Transparent background?) where it looks like in the standalone pv360 it was possible to omit the floor and environment while keeping the shadows in the final render. Is this possible in the integrated version of pv360 or has this functionality been removed? One word:Paul Salvador(I know it looks like two, but he's the 1.)
In placing nameplates for devices on a panel enclosure layout, is there a way to set up the part to automatically generate a separate symbol on the page with the detail of what is on the nameplate? I'm thinking of some kind of attribute for the main part. Can I create custom attributes to use on a part?
Hi, I've got an assembly drawing of a steel frame that I need to run a stress simulation on. The person who drew it used standard beam sizes from the Toolbox, but can't remember which ones he used. As we are in Australia, and there is no Australian Standard beam sizes in the toolbox, he picked beams from all different standards that closely matched dimensions of the AS beams used in construction.
Is Weldment capable of providing calculations and stress test for aluminum welds? I'm thinking of capability similar to what is available for steel welds. Jive Software Version: 2016.3.10.4, revision: 20180516024324.179277c.release_2016.3.10.4
Hello all, I've attached a few documents that I've written which I hope help answer the questions that many of you have about setting up Toolbox. They certainly don't contain all the answers, but I hope that you agree they're worth a read.
I want to add new parts to the toolbox so that when it is dragged into assembly, we get the option of choosing material and size (like regular toolbox parts).I have tried adding configurations and derived configurations to the parts but they appear as one long list in the properties manager when dragged into the assembly.Moreover its more convenient adding part number and descripton through toolbox setup than adding it in individual configurations. Thanks for your help.
