I used H-adaptive to attempt to get accurate results for static analysis. After 5 loops' calculation software said that the calculation has achieved 98% accuracy, so I thought the stress calculated must be accurate enough. But it turned out that my maximum stress is much greater than material's yield strength, which tells me I should consider using Non-linear and the maximum stress value may not be correct.

This is easily accomplished using string functions and variables. p.s. the OK Messagebox statements are for debugging/development/teaching purposes only - feel free to remove them.

Does anybody know if it's possible to change the font used throughout the UI in Solidworks? I know it can be changed from black to white or visa versa by changing from the light to dark theme but I was hoping to change it to another color (green to match my feature tree). See screen capture below.

It has been a while I asked here for the integration of SW PCB in to the PDM. Our company running SW products and PDM integration of all softwares would be great. Honestly, SolidWorks PCB Services is totally not a good working system for team cooperation.

So I have the following macro which automates the "save as DWG" operation by also configuring specific options and then creates a directory to store the DWG file in. This macro works 100% of the time when the "Export" folder doesn't already exist. But when the "Export" folder already exists, the script may run successfully, but sometimes, it errors out at the following line...

It is difficult to just select a dimension by clicking on it - especially angular dimensions. When I select a dimension, the only area that allows selection is the number itself, then it opens the small number input dialogue, as below !!!

Hello. First off, Ifully understandthat Nvidia is the recommended way to go, and that non-Nvidia cards do not take advantage of the GPU rendering. I know that this makes non-Nvidia cards underperform, compared to supported Nvidia cards. I am specifically looking to see how people are doing and feeling with their non-Nvidia cards despite the fact that they're kind of crippled.

Ok. So if you open assembly and show "this works" configuration you'll see SW handling ZTG geometry because when Part2 is extruded (feature "this works") there is ZTG created when it passes by Part1. Therefore the cavity function should have failed, but it didn't. Yeah!

This just happened to me yesterday (using SW2018 SP2.) As some of you know, you try to save the SW part file and it gives you this error dialog "Fail to save document". While I was in this state (file in session but cannot save my recent changes to it), I read most of the forum posts on this topic and tried everything that I could: "Save-as" copy, Pack-n'-Go, save as to different directory, removed addin's etc. I turned of my Windows7 indexing because I have been having issues with it - apart

Is there a way to change the color of a visible sketch in a drawing sheet from a part/assembly? I am using 2018 solidworks. I know I could go to ' System Options → Colors → under color scheme settings: Sketch, Inactive '. The problem with this is that it changes all sketches throughout the program and I only want to change a certain sketch for a drawing sheet and not have to go change the color back to black when im done with drawing.
