I have a weldment that has different configurations for. In each of those configurations i have a piece that is different lengths. How can i get a part number associated with these different lengths?

I have run across this error and would like some help in solving it. I have counted the length of the file path, including the file extension and spaces, and came up with 109 characters. This is well below the 250 or so that is the supposed windows limitation. I have tried shortening the file path by eliminating some characters but that does not help.

Does anybody have and experience and or best practices in setting up a tablet of pc based floor accessible system to look at drawings, query models and access associated engineering data? I took a look at flatter files. It looks interesting.

Why...does SolidWorks, when I initiate a cut, more often than not go away from the part and give me the "intended cut does not intersect the model?? If the software knows where the model is, why doesn't it default to the valid direction??

Sometimes a component is made with an external reference, then we go in and break the reference to the othercompenent. HOWEVER the part is still referencing that other component. How can this link be completely destroyed so these external references (even broken ones) stop confusing our PDM by existing.

Hi, I'm trying to create a mold from this seat. There was another thread that had a goal similar to what I am trying to accomplish. From that thread (referenced link below) I downloaded Paul Salvador's part and tried to replicate his steps but to no success. The part I've included does not have the steps I did in trying to mimic Paul's part.

As part of our Solidworks upgrade from 2017 to 2019, I was hoping that our data update using the Upgrade Tool would also pass properties in our drawings and parts to their associated datacards. I updated the datacards to include additional properties, so when we did our PDM upgrade & version upgrade, all of the data would be populated. Since it appeared that the tool was simply checking out parts, saving them, then checking the files back into the vault. When you do this manually, you get a

Does anyone else have a massive problem with losing concentric and coincident mates when using faces as selections? many of my models are imported step files that were created in pro engineer and exported as a step file. Consequently the files are full of minor import errors. As I have no time to correct every single import error in thousands of parts i have to leave them as they are.

I was inspired by a labyrinth/puzzle box I 3d printed for my son. So I decided to noodle around with creating the labyrinth/channel on the inside of the cylinder. When I used "wrap" with deboss selected, I get a channel with non-parallel (dovetail) walls.

hi guys, ive finally figured out the design i need but my friend had made the pattern I need to copy over from a part file. Is there a way to convert this sketch including the holes on the see thru acrylic panel that I have pointed to in the image below? I need to make a cutout of the cirlces only that follows the filled pattern but going the long way by doing linear pattern really shuts down my solidworks and freezes up.

For a long time I've been annoyed that when I make a drawing with shaded views (Figure 1) and save it as a .pdf, that the shaded views in the .pdf are very low resolution images (Figure 2). Today I learned that you can increase the resolution (ppi, not the dpi) of the images in the .pdf export by going to *from a SolidWorks drawing* -> "File" -> "Save As" -> "Save As Type" -> ".pdf" -> "options" -> "System Options" -> "export" -> "file format" -> "pdf" -> "Shaded/Draft geometry DPI" -> *set to a

I'm trying to make a very complex part, with a lot of design challenges that I'm first getting to know a little one by one. One of these challenges is to have embossed strips on a free-form cylinder-like shape. I tried to do it with the embossed wrap function on a spline surface which gets me very strange results:
