I am attempting to use the api to run and retrieve data from motion studies with very little success. I have tried retrieving data both through sensors and through plots set up in the study. The sensor seems to be non functioning and always return 0 through the API even though it updates fine in Solidworks. When attempting to retrieve data from the plots i have very mixed success with retrieving x-valuess and RuntimeBinderExceptions when running trying to retrieve y-values

I've got sheet metal parts. They're not weldments. It's real nice that SW does the Cut-List for them. I can FINALLY get the flat blank to auto-update on the print by referencing one of the fields in there.

Hi, I run SW on X1E with Nvidia 1050Ti maxQ but I may need to change the machine due to loud fan noise. Anybody using SW on Thinkpad P1 or laptop with P1000 or P2000 GPU? What will I see/experience differnetly if I switch to a laptop with P1000 or P2000 GPU? I think I read somewhere that the 1050Ti MaxQ is faster than the P1000 and P2000.

Got my new RTX 2080Tis delivered yesterday. Don't have the rest of the components for the new build, so I just put one of the cards into my current/old build to see how it went. Removed my old cards from that rig as well, so the only GPU in the machine was the 2080Ti.

Does anyone know where (or if it even exists) the default template for a SW macro resides? When you click Tools->Macro->New you end up with: Which is something, I guess, but something like 90% of macros I do start very similar, with getting the active doc, checking type, get selection manager, etc.

I need help. I try to learn the API and macros, but it`s still complicated. I downloaded one macro: "Pack and go". It`s working fine, but I want it to be more comfortable to use.

I'm going through the Pipe Routing tutorial, and I've cone to te point where I'm supposed to drop in the ball valve. When I try to drag the valve onto the assembly, it doesn't pop into place so I can hit tab to get it in the proper orientation. I had no trouble with the tee valve earlier. I'm running 2017, SP 2.0.

I have had some discussions withNick Birkett-Smiththe Product Definition Manager for Assemblies. We came up with an enhancement that could significantly save time for users who use SSP or Master Modeling. If you ever have parts linked to a SSP or Master Sketch and wished you could move them to another assembly when changes come in this SPR is for you. Please read below for Nick's summary and vote if you believe it will help you.

I would like to have the sheet that a part appears on in a drawing appear in a custom property in the part so I can display it in a column in the BOM. This will allow a user to look at a line item in a BOM and know which sheet that part appears on. I'm already running a macro prior to printing that links all of the views to the BOM and changes them to high res, so I'm already traversing all of the views.

I assumed that using the freeze bar on all of the parts in an assembly would speed up the loading of that assembly but it doesn't seem to help at all. Does anyone have any experience with this? The Freeze Bar will help with the rebuilds, not the loading.

I'm currently running Solidworks 2017 Premium, but have the annual maintenance subscription. I never got around to updating to 2018, and I see that 2019 has come out. I like the new features that come with 2019, however, if I do update to the latest version, I'm afraid any shops that my company works with will be unable to open the assembly files we send them (unless we save them as parasolids or some other format). Many of the shops currently run 2017 or 2018 and haven't updated either.

So we've recently (end of last week) upgraded to SW PDM Standard and I had a general usage/operation question before I get too deep into teaching myself anything improper. With the older PDM Workgroup we had a "Workgroup" folder on our local machines where all of the day to day info was kept and checked in from. This folder also contains the "SW Auto Recover", "SW Log Files" and "SW Temporary Files".

I have an issue regarding the creation of 3D PDF's! Any parts with a decal or picture included, end up with many extra lines, as if you crumbled a piece of paper and smoothed it out again. If I remove the decals/pictures, the parts look nice again. But that defeats the purpose of the decals.

I have a need to automate converting slddrw drawings into DXF files. This will need to be done in the background with no user input. I would prefer to use the docmanager API for this if possible so that I dont have to start up solidworks for each file..Is it possible?

Loft changes circle into non-circle I have one issue with loft feature. When I create the loft from two sketches then I select "close loft" and of course 3 guide curves....it makes a loft as I wanted but it is not circular as I expected (it is not a perfect circle but an elipse or something not circular - you cant measure its diameter, only its lenght)

I found the reason of losing all virtual parts in my assemblies. It is Pack&Go command. After it, all virtual parts are lost in both assemblies, they become greyed out in feature tree after reopening of assembly. When I try to open virtual part I get the following message.
