I am trying to cut this arc (green line) on a CNC but when we generate the code in MasterCam its commanding the cut in several straight lines (tangents shown in grey) to form the arc- the code is generated this way because SolidWorks is making the arc this way. This is ok but we need to smooth out the arc alot by substantially increasing the number of straight lines and decrease their length so the CNC code commands to cut a smoother arc. Ive made the arc out of a spline and its still the same.

i have tried creating a map file. however as you can see under entity in the image below, i only have on option to choose from which is "Geometry". what i'm wanting to do is put the split lines on the face of the part under the MARTKINGS layer and everything else under the 0 layer so i dont have to open the dxf file and add these layers. is this even possible?

For some reason, my Save As PDF doesn't do anything. It accepts my input and lets me change my file name and such and navigate to a directory, and then I click OK. Then nothing is output to the directory.....:/

I downloaded this SketchUp filemars curiosity rover obj | 3D Warehouseand converted it using SketchUp - export function to dwg format. However, when I try to import it in Solidworks 2012, the process is so slow that it is impractical.

I was sent an STP file by a customer of mine. The file continuously crashes my pc (using SolidWorks 2017), however, I was lucky enough to get it opened on SolidWorks 2018. After importing the file, it can be seen that there are a few breaks in the model, and there are over 8000 surface bodies and no solid bodies at all. How could I resolve this import issue as well as to import the model without crashing my pc?

I'd like to select a folder and have each file opened in SWX and then saved back to the same folder. I have a few hundred folders just of one vehicle and in each folder there can be up to a hundred files. Tags:none(add)import multiple files

I have a model where I have applied an image as a decal. I would like to export this colour model for 3D printing in colour, but I lose the decal when I export to different formats. Many 3D Printing machines use STL files for making the print.

i have recently discovered loads of extra stl files that have appeared in a folder, i did not save these individually......is there anyway solidworks would do this? Jive Software Version: 2018.13.0.0_jx, revision: 20190118155848.7eaeabc.release_2018.13.0-jx

Today, I was able to translate one particular inventor file to Solidworks fine, It prompt me to covert all the features fine. Then I went to my next file and it creates a derived part with a solid base part. It didn't give me thedialog option boxto convert as features or bodies. i tried any other inventor part and same result. I didn't change any settings.

thanks alot.. this is exactly what i was looking for. Now the next thing I need to do is create a surface using the imported points. This spreadsheet is not only awsome, it is totally awsome & just saved a ton of time not having to enter the points manually.

I'm trying to batch export multiple sheet metal flat patterns of an assembly to DXFs instead of opening and saving as each individual parts. I'm just wondering if there is a tool in Solidworks that can enable me to do this or a macro I can implement? It exports the DXF but if they are the same thickness it overwrites each part almost like its naming them the same thing.

I can not create new configurations sizes importing Excel file on Toolbox? This is serius? I think this importation works just proprieties, but the excel file must have the same exported file and can not change the order, because if you change order the importation proprieties came wrong.

Exporting files to STEP takes ages on SW 2109. I have no precise data for comparison, but I'm waiting for now 10 min to get an already simplified drawing exported. Also there is no progress bar, just a funny hourglass next to the taskbar icon, to make one aware of how far the process is. Another colleague in my office is having the same issue...

Using the same STL resolution settings that I have been using in 2015-16-17 which worked fine now take much longer to export. For instance a 25mb file would normally save in under 5 seconds. Now I can wait 30 to 60 seconds for the same file to export. A file of 200mb or so can take up to 5 minutes to write to disk.

I am learning to use "Recognize Features". I watched a youtube video and then tried myself. However, my "Recognize Features" was grey out. Why?

I have made a SWX assembly involving multiple configurations of the same part (different part numbers), as well as several other stand alone parts. I need to send this assembly and individual parts to an engineer who has requested .asm format. What is the best practice here? Do I need to save each configuration as a separate part and include them in the folder with the .asm assembly?

Has anyone had this problem?? I exported a file from Creo as a Parasolid and tried importing it into Solidworks. If there is an ellipse features, it will not allow that Parasolid to import.
