I am trying to export a copper shape and PCB profile as a DXF to PADS from a part that has been made in Solidworks. I do not have access to circuitworks. We have been proceeding with the technique describedhereunsuccessfully. This involved selecting each line in PADS, joining and then closing them.

In the technical illustrations that I am producing I want to show some items with different colored outlines and possibly filled. These items would indicate that they are not supplied in the kit. I've been through the VAR's tutorial but it didn't cover this and I haven't figure out where to change those two properties for just selected parts, not the whole drawing.

I'm not sure how I would use try / catch in the context of the combine feature. I need a boolean value to test if the combine feature was successful or has failed, to react to this in code.

I am working on my favorite project creating hydraulic hoses for a feeder assembly. In trying to put together a master sketch for this assembly I have created a 3D sketch with the fixed points and I am running hose lines.With a cluster of hoses together it would be nice to be able to change the line colors for each hose within the sketch. Is this possible?

When I am creating a assy. in SW 2018, from time to time I have the models that I bring in disappear from the screen. Is there a was to stop solid works from doing it? My work around is that I hide the model and then unhide it but when I bring in other models it disappears again.

I have a top-down part that somehow apparently lost its link to the base part (the part that I initially inserted that forms the foundation of the part under discussion here). Is there a way to repair this link? The base part is still named the same, still resides in the same location, and there are two other parts that also reference it that are doing fine.

When using Pack and Go, sometimes it completes the operation quickly and other times slowly. From my experience this seems to be related to the number of SW files in the directory folder of the model/drawing being Pack and Go'd. Is there a way to reduce the time it takes to complete the Pack and Go operation?
