I have copied a Toolbox fastener folder and renamed it etc. I then added custom properties, additional lengths and sizes. I got through all that ok. Now I'm testing it and for some reason, the shaded cosmetic threads appear differently in my custom toolbox than they do in the default toolbox that I copied mine from.

Toolbox part preview pop-up I use the click wheel to scroll through the toolbox, but when this window pops up right under my pointer I can no longer scroll and have to move my mouse to another part of the screen.

Update Solidworks installation from 2018 to 2019, before the update i copied the toolbox folder from network to my machine, them i specified the path of toolbox during installation, and updated without errors or warnings. Darrell ConleyNov 29, 2018 10:06 AM(in response to Fernando Rodrigues Gonçalez) I'm having the same issue as well. Am thinking about re-setting the toolbox database file and seeing if that helps.

A lot of the standard weldment profiles that are shipped with SolidWorks were obviously made from taking the toolbox structural member shapes and saving out their sketch as a library feature part. Unfortunately, they didn't clear the toolbox flag when they did it so these files still read as toolbox parts. When you take your library and save it into a PDM vault (standard or professional) you get errors that you have toolbox parts in a non toolbox folder. The obvious fix is to run the

I am working on an assembly I got from others, and they used toolbox parts. Is there a way to convert these parts into standard parts? Especially when I don't have toolbox?

This is an issue I have constantly and am looking for ways to fix it. If I use Toolbox parts in an assembly, and then later move the assembly to another folder or use pack-and-go, often the sizes of those parts will magically change, forcing me to remove them all and replace them. I know I can save the toolbox part under a new name somewhere then use sldsetdocprop to remove the toolbox link, but there must be a simpler, quicker way to do this. I don't mind keeping the link to the toolbox, just

Toolbox models graphics quality Does the toolbox models come with a standard level of graphics quality set and if so what is it? I was doing some digging today and found that a bunch of our toolbox models have their settings set rather high.

I am new to Toolbox settings and attempting to edit my Toolbox configuration to change which standards are selected. I have tried the following with or without SolidWorks running.

I copy old toolbox to new location before 2019 install and selected new location while installing 2019. I setup toolbox to create parts instead of config. So I have a folder with toolbox parts that are read only.

Would someone share with me their companies customized tool box data that has normally unused fasteners removed and other common changes like different material options? Re: Tool Box Data, normal un-used fasteners removed.

It looks like you have something trying to drive the value ofMinor_dia@BodySketo 0.000mm. As you can see in the images below, the value is shown as 6.6190mm in the graphics area but when you double-click the dimension to edit it, the value shown is actually 0.0000mm. A line can't have zero length so the system is throwing an error. In the third image below, I've added a new dimension controlling the line length defined byMinor_dia@BodySkedimension and then deleted theMinor_dia@BodySkedimension

The issue is that I don't even manage to open the gear in order to edit it in a way I can edit (I am not sure if it is possible at all, for parts generated by the toolbox), as when I try it a receive a message like "The document xyz is available only for reading and it is not accessible for writing. You need writing access to be able to execute it." (poorly translated from Portuguese). Then, if I do manage to get this permission, am I being able to make what I want?

Also is there a way to move the order around. Seems like this should be a simple thing to do but for the life of me I can't figure it out. For instance if I wanted "Hex Finish Bolt" to be first rather than last.

I'm attempting to work with our existing toolbox. I'm experimenting with an off line ToolBox. I changed a few things and plopped down a BOM. The first thing I noticed was that there was no "Description" property.

Replacing entire ToolBox I would like to create, modify, test etc etc a toolbox on a standalone system without changing anything on the Toolbox that is being used by all the other users. In essence I want to start with a new toolbox, clean it up, modify it and make sure we are happy with the results and then replace the existing one with the new one.
