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.

At work we operate using a shared Toolbox location for SolidWorks and have done so for some years. This works fine generally, however as the company has grown we have started to give standard fixings (nuts, bolts & washers etc) an internal reference part number - every different type of bolt gets a part number. We do not use configurations for parts and our part number and BOM setup works using the SolidWorks file name.

The ANSI screw clearance holes in the Hole Wizard configurator don't have the Enable radio button like the tapped, countersink, and counterbore holes do. We have setup our Hole Wizard in such a way that the ANSI sizes are the coarse threads and standard sizes (i.e. M3, M4 M5, M6, M8.... etc). We have removed the fine thread and oddball sizes (M2.5, M3.5, M6.5, M7.... etc) and put them in a copied version of the standard. This keeps the ANSI list shorter (easier to pick from) and cuts down on

I've used the toolbox to make a spur gear. I adapted it to my own specifications and also made a hole in it, so it can be fastened. I saved the gear in the same folder as the assembly. Whenever I open the assembly it doesn't use my gear but the standard gear from the toolbox.

Hello, I recently saved a copy of a screw from the toolbox as a different part with a new name in a different folder, I had to do this because I couldn't find the exact screw I needed so I modified some measurements and added specific configurations to this copied part. When I add that new part to an assembly everything seems fine, then I save the assembly and before opening it again I check that it references the screw that i just created, everything ok so far. But when it opens the assembly it

Why does SW decide to replace one part with another part automatically with the original toolbox part? I drop a toolbox part into an assembly such as a jig bushing and then do a FILE SAVEAS and give the toolbox part a new name & new folder, then save & close the assembly. Then I reopen that assembly and it loads the original toolbox part that I dropped into the assembly.

Is there a good way to get access to miniature screws (threaded holes, clearance holes and countersink and bores) in the Hole Wizard? I have Toolbox, and can find the miniature (#0000 etc. and UNM sizes) in the thread listings, but the sizes are not available in the Hole Wizard. I have been able to edit the exported Excel file from the Toolbox to add miniature threaded and bottoming threaded holes to the Hole Wizard, by cutting and pasting the relevant sizes from the thread definitions to the
