Yeah it would be nice but I haven't found a way. Closest I can come is to mate as usual then either suppress or delete all the mates as a last step. Jive Software Version: 2018.7.0.1_jx, revision: 20180814200645.7fbf90c.release_18.7.0-jx

edit: To understand why you have to multiply by 1 (or add zero) I envisage it's a similar situation to having a Column in Excel formatted as text. The math operation forces the BOM to see a number Jive Software Version: 2018.7.0.1_jx, revision: 20180814200645.7fbf90c.release_18.7.0-jx

I am having trouble when using the configuration publisher. When inserting a part (see example below), excel opens and creates the configuration successfully. The problem is that excel does not close on its own. If I close excel manually, solidworks appears to be frozen and I have to close it in the task manager.

hi guys, im having a few issues right now. I have an assembly where I have sheet metal as the housing and internal components mated to its walls. So I would do edit sketch on the housing within the assembly and draw out where the cutouts need to be based on how the internal components are mated. Then I would go to assembly features and do extruded cut and propagate the cut feature to the part.

Working on a model that involves numerous equations and global variables. Circular structure divided into equal segments. Currently I have a single segment as an assembly and do a circular pattern to give me the full structure. This assembly needs to be easily modified for different diameters, number of sections, etc.

Hey guys, for the life of me I cannot get a macro to record the removal of the same two notes from my prints. I use a macro to grab them from my design library and place them where I want but I want to do the same thing only remove them. I have a series of macros that I click to add "approval notes", "dual dimension sheet", "save an approval copy as PDF" in a certain folder, "undo dual dimensions on sheet", "-----------------------"save as PDF on our network location" then a "single button print

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'm still pretty new to Solidworks and its API, but I've already managed to write a code to import parasolid files and export them to a different format with a specified configuration, which is working great! Now I'd like to do the same for lots of file and since I've noticed Solidworks doesn't seem to be multi threaded when loading a file (at least not a parasolid file), my first attempt was to create multiple Solidworks instances, each loading a new file and exporting it. Although this does

First off, I have to thankJohn Stoltzfusfor his help in getting us to our current position. We see the value in the Skeleton Sketch Part Method because inevitably near the end of our projects we are having to make fundamental design changes. So, we need a robust method of handling those changes to our assemblies. I worked with John and tried to map out what I thought would be a good workflow.
