I'm trying to pack and go a large assembly, including drawings. In the process, I also have to rename a lot of parts and assemblies. So, after spending at least 2 hours getting the names the way I want them, I started the pack and go (including drawings). 2 hours later, it was still spinning.

We use a part in our assemblies that has over 150 configs in it. When the part is added to an assembly the Engineer selects the correct config for that specific assembly. The configs are basically engraved labels so it varies per assembly and we create a few thousand assemblies per year.

Do you mean like the PDM Add-In? This operates in the task-pane on the right-hand-side within the SolidWorks window. This exists and allows for checking-in/out files as well as changing state and viewing the PDM files contained within the open assembly.

Hello, I tried going through the forums to find this answer cut everything I tried didn't end up working. I was given a macro that converts SolidWorks part files to .STEP files but it automatically saves the part as a step file within the working directory. I was wondering if there's a way to change it to give the option of choosing what directory to save the new step file. Attached is the macro that was given to me.

I am currently struggling with modelling the internal spline geometry of a spline coupling. I was following a similar method for the external model with the hope i will flip the sketch at some point, this has however not been possible.

I am faced with a scenario where a few of my sub-assemblies show to be completely solvable, but when I bring them into a Large assembly they become unsolvable. The attached file shows what typically happens. I interpret this to mean that the errors are independent of the mates in the Large Assembly, however when I open the Sub-Assemblies separately, no errors are present.

I import files from DXF into Solidworks and some of these files have a lot of points / nodes / breaks (not sure the correct terminology here) that cause my PC to slow down. Apart from the function called 'fit spline' is there anyway to modify the sketch so that these points do not show? Nicholas, I don't use Draftsight personally but I'm told it's supposed to have the functionality of AutoCAD which I do still use.

I added a suggestion that we do not currently have any way to do hence my adding the idea, but somehow this got added, not sure by who or maybe they did not understand my suggestion so how do I get it back to "Purposed" so it might get voted on? Jim, please check attached video if that it what you're looking for? If not then edit the idea and add more details, pictures to explain.

Dynamic highlight Why is it when my assembly grows to a larger size, I all of a sudden lose the ability to dynamically highlight surfaces with my mouse. I need to be able to see this so I pick the correct thing.

its a circular part so there are no reference edges to work off of. Im trying to make and extruded cut for a hole and I figured the simplest way to do it would be to make a sketch on a plane that's 45 degrees offset from the right plane but I can't figure out how to accomplish it in solidworks. any help would be appreciated. there are lots of different ways to do this depending on what you exactly want to do.

I would like to place a note in our drawing borders that will return the value of the drawings unit of measure (from the Document Properties tab shown below). Does anyone know of a way I can pull this information into a note on the drawing? I want to do this so that if a user sets the default units to millimeters, the note will automatically update to read "millimeters" instead of reading "inches"

These animations are not present in any version of solidworks i have used before. I apologize if i am not describing this well, but any help would be greatly appreciated. For orange highlights when you hover over features, sketches, etc., uncheck "dynamic highlight" option

Attached is my attempt at creating a cruciform join between two beams. The idea is that the horizontal beam has two vertical inserts which make it appear that the vertical beam carries on through. It has been designed in such a way that the vertical inserts are inserted from the back and then welded so the final result is seamless. Some beams have already been fabricated in this way so I am trying to produce drawings to ensure future results are consistent.

Hello, I am working on a project bunk bed open and I will be happy for help. The basic idea is that the bed bed on the second floor relies on two pillars opens, telescope-shaped (like a crowbar Salafi), so that the columns will hold the bed and it will be possible to raise and lower it. I wondered what would be the best way to produce the columns so long Siiamdo weight at the same time be able to open and close easily? What material it is recommended to make the pages?
