I need some help figuring out why my macro is changing the angular precison of the chamer from None to double decimal. I use the macro to change the mass to kg and to define the number of decimal places based on the weight. But somehow the macro also affects the angular precision of the chamfers. For example it changes it from 10x45° to 10x45,00°.
I imported this assembly from a Step file and I noticed that the sub-assembly and lower level parts has an Arrow pointing to the left. Anyone knows what this means? Also I cannot open the sub-assembly in a new window. I am not getting the option to open the sub-assembly nor any of the lower level parts.
Check-Out, Save, Check-In Assemblies In our shop, we use eDrawings to review assemblies to help with welding, fabrication, assembling, and other things. When we revise lower level parts and assemblies, the top-level assemblies are not updated.
I.e. Right now users are able to edit the version comments for previous versions. This is an issue for auditing etc and we would like it so that users can only edit comments for files they have checked out. Ideas?
Started SW 2016 about 3 months ago. No prev SW experience. I can find many U tube video tutorials on "procedures" except "how to go about designing a a machine for in-house use. I see SW is great for product design and product management but that's not what I need.
The drilling bits has hundreds of small surfaces. it is very hard to use equation goals or surface goals to calculate the torque on the drilling bits. Jive Software Version: 2018.13.0.0_jx, revision: 20190118155848.7eaeabc.release_2018.13.0-jx
I'm writing a macro to format bend notes in drawings to my company's standards. Currently our engineers individually edit each bend note to input data for bending operations. I've inched along piecing together code in automating this process but I am stuck at the point of adding the hem data that is needed. The variables I need to get are hem gap distance and hem type.
Hello... I have made a digitalization of the hand of a boy who needs an orthosis to help him to move the hand. I have worked the file with Meshmixer and Netfabb and now need to import it to SolidWorks to draw the orthosis. What's happened is that the file is very heavy and SW crash a lot of times.
I am designing a part made of tubes using the standard sketch tab. I read that you can pull a model apart using "insert into new part". I attempted to execute this method but it selected the entire model. I am trying to build a model using pipes then pull the model apart so I can then make the pipe flat so I will have the coup contour as a flat sheet.
I was wondering if users of Solidworks would be willing to post simple animation movies here of work they have done? Just for general interest. Some of these look like a piece of cake, but caused massive hair loss in the end.
I have a part file with two imported surfaces of a propeller, one of each side of the blade. There is a gap between the imported surfaces which needs to be filled. I'm trying to merge the two surface imports and make a solid propeller model to run a static simulation test on it. I've tried knitting the surfaces and boundary boss/base, but both get error messages.
While trying to do a reasonably basic render tonight, I had the screen cycle to black and then come back, similar to the behavior that was causing crashes a few months ago. This time, however, instead of crashing, the render automatically picked up where it left off - but in CPU-only mode. My CPU was at 98+% load while all GPUs were sitting idle.
My background is in AutoCAD but I have a job interview on Monday in which they said I would be using DriveWorks. I have never used DriveWorks before. Does anyone know if DriveWorks is an extension of Solidworks? I went to the DriveWorks website and they have different versions but not sure if it requires you to know Solidworks.
I'm building a model to simulate discharge flow from a compartment volume to ambient with an external cross flow - see attached concept image. The goal here is to characterize the vent port flow resistance over a range of pressure ratios, cross flow velocities, and disc tilt angles. I'm only considering cases where the internal compartment pressure is higher than the external ambient pressure. The fluid is air for both internal and external conditions.
I have created a sheet format and it works well with its own drawing templates, but when i replace this same sheet format in some other drawing - title block and borders start to move in EDIT SHEET FORMAT mode. Is there any method to fix the movement of Title block/ borders , when a sheet format is replaced in some drawing ?
