As I understand, with PDM you have a revision scheme and versions. We used to show just the revision of the file (Smarteam days) on drawings. Check in and check out created a new rev/sub rev (01.1 to 01.2 to 01.3 and then released to 01) but with PDM Pro I've been introduced to versions. The current workflow has the versions changing at check in and check out but the revision only changes when a "Status" change happens.

Incorrect revolution cutting Hi, I'm doing an exercise with SolidWorks, but I'm facing this problem: the revolution cutting edges (sorry for bad translation, ENG is not my primary language) of my geometry are not respected by the program. They don't coincide with my solid as you can see in the attached photo.

Hi, I'm doing an exercise with SolidWorks, but I'm facing this problem: the perimeter of my geometry is not respected by the program. It uses referiments that are out of my part. It doesn't identify the correct edges of my solid. What can I do?

I have a part (with embossed text on one face) with a couple of configurations which vary in size. I need to have the text size scaled as per the configuration size so is there any way to control the text size with equations? The best I can think of is to have two different features and suppress/unsurpassed the appropriate sketched text.

Several manufacturers are serving us 3D CAD geometry for (buy)parts and components, some based on running macros using your own 3D CAD core. As for SW, I often heard the recommendation to ever fully define your sketches. As it is to intensive opening all feature's to fully define the sketches one by one, i was wandering if there is a macro around which could run this task?

I have a problem with drawings when I use DriveWorks. I have drawing with three sheets. First sheet is for assembly and others are for parts of that assembly. Now It changes the assembly sheet only when I generate new model in Driveworks.

When creating a drawing view with the display style 'shaded' I sometimes find the drawing view switching to 'shaded with edges' while only 'shaded' is still active. This mostly happens when rebuilding the drawing or when re-opening the drawing. - switching to 'use software OpenGL' under system options>performance.

I've noticed since the last update to SW pro 2018 SP5 that while I'm creating features within a part that is within an assembly, when I click the exit sketch icon, it also exits from the part into the assembly. Very frustrating, I've accidentally created features at the assembly level several times now because I haven't noticed it do it immediately, and have to go back , delete them and recreate it in the part.

"Unshare" sketch? I created two different features using the same sketch, so the second one now has that little hand under it showing the sketch is shared.

We use a macro we found on this forum to create a custom property called "AutoQty" in each indivual part. I have been trying to get this (ISO macro to export flat pattern dxf from assemblies SW2017) macro to include that custom property in the dxf filename without success. Ex: (filename (AutoQty).dxf)

To explain, I am sheeting up a template for the way we handle sheetmetal parts. the first sheet is the iso drawing with all the dimensions and whatnot; the second sheet is the bend locations, and the third sheet is the flat pattern to be sent to the cutter. The third sheet doesn't have a border and is nothing that will be seen by my fabricators so having sending two drawings out with 2 or3on the bottom is begging for questions.

I'm completely new to Flow Simulation and despite having spent a day reading the online tutorial and watching examples on YouTube I'm having trouble extrapolating to my study case. We have air flowing through the flexible coolant at an arbitrary rate and argon flowing through the container next to the coolant at a 13L/min.

What I need to do is find the partial length along an edge loop between the intersections of two rays. Where I'm struggling is understanding the directions of the different elements. The body that I'm working with is an extrusion and I'm looking at either of the planar end faces. It appears the the order of the edges in the Loop2 object is always counter-clockwise as viewed with the face normal pointing outward from the screen (the API doc says that outer loops are CCW so that matches).

I have remade the channels but I am having trouble making the wells sit higher than the channel. My original channel depth was set at 0.1mm and diameter 0.25mm. What I am trying to do is where the channel meets the wells I want the wells raised like maybe 0.50mm, is that possible? I have spent a while trying to do this and I'm getting really confused@KevinChandler @CarrieIves Any help would be greatly appreciated!

EDIT: I see what the issue is now after looking at it more closely. The opposite hand version preview is different than the actual feature once it's completed. EDIT2: After performing the mirror again, using the option Break link to part seems to work better.
